1. 25 pounder. So quick to ready and fire that the Germans were convinced the Brits had automatic field guns. Combined with British Ordnace Survey surveying skills, it could put rounds down on any target in range with precision.

  2. The first "real" crew served howitzer. And god damn sexy. I have a 12 pounder in my beret and i wish it was a 25pdr

  3. My grandpa was a lieutenant in the Australian army in WW2 and served as a forward observer for 25 pounders in Papua New Guinea and the middle east.

  4. LAD. The Soviet belt fed machine gun for pistol round. Never went into mass production, but almost was accepted.

  5. Wow I’ve never heard of that. That sounds really interesting and definitely a world war 2 design of trying to make a belt fed machine gun with pistol ammo 😂

  6. Fun fact: the mosin nagant was never patented and therefore never officially called the mosin nagant. It was called the 3 line rifle where line refers to the old Russian imperial measurement “linya” which was equal to 1/10th an English inch. Three of these was the calibre of the bullet, hence “3 line”

  7. Definitely!probably one of the most iconic guns in history. You play a video game, watch a movie or tv show with nazis in it, they’ll be an mp40. Such an incredible gun and a masterpiece of mechanical design.

  8. Shoutout to Where Eagles Dare! One of my all time favorites. And agreed on the MP-40. My granddad brought two back from the war, but traded them for a few cameras in the 50s. Still have his P38 at least, and it still fires!

  9. The Lee Enfield. God that was a beautiful rifle. Twice as many rounds in the magazine than most other bolt action rifles at the time. Could be fired twice as fast as well. The look of it. Everything about it is just chefs kiss.

  10. Agreed! I got to shoot one recently and was very surprised at the weight of it, it’s a lot heavier than you think. Great friggen gun.

  11. The Boys anti-tank rifle - trying to track down my Grandfathers wartime history and found that he was using one of these.

  12. I would go for the most famous one, the Luger P08 because the ww2 emblem is the nazis and they used the luger, images, films, cosplay, every general nazi is portrayed with a luger p08

  13. Yep. 100% agree. Apart from the ak-47 being associated with the Soviets after the war. The Luger is probably one of the most iconic gun throughout history where almost anyone could tell you that they were used by the nazis

  14. I'd get the K31 bolt-action rifle. Because with that rifle, my grandfather served in the Swiss Army and yes, he did not get into combat of course when you know history. It's still one of the best designs of WW2 bolt-action rifles, very reliable, easy to handle and to clean, high accuracy and good power.

  15. Mg3 sounds utterly Beautiful and terryfing. Well i guess it sounds cool bc its terryfing (like the mushroom caused by an atomic bomb) I can only Imagine the fear of the young boys on the normandy beach when that thing started ripping limbs and bones. Also russian submuchine guns are really interesting specially the pp-41 with a drum magazine must scared ze germans in Stalingrad.

  16. The Lee Enfield. God that was a beautiful rifle. Twice as many rounds in the magazine than most other bolt action rifles at the time. Could be fired twice as fast as well. The look of it. Everything about it is just chefs kiss.

  17. You're all going guns, but my favourite weapon would be the Flak 88. Tremendously versatile, and just looks like it means business.

  18. M3 grease gun. It's of its time . Screams mass production. Can imagine it rolling off an assembly line. In 1930 would've looked futuristic, by 1960 was anachronistic.

  19. StG.44 might be my number 1. I literally saved up $2000 when HMG announced their reproduction in 2016-ish and I was going to buy one in original 7.92x33mm. Well, that was a failure to launch which I will forever be sad about.

  20. Oh oh oh the Gustloff volksturmgewehr civilian battle rifle. Last ditch rifle given to the German people end of ww2. Cheap simple and used STG44 mags
