Al Caponeyeah a sten m2 would be very nice for brits maps like breakthrough and gold beach.Maybe even give the brits the sten for desert rose since it is a late desert war map.The sten is essential for italian front maps though.If the sten mk1 could be moddeled then the brits could get it on battle of britian :beer:
Stens were not used in Italy almost all British and commenwealth forces retained there thompsons.
Artie BuccoStens were not used in Italy almost all British and commenwealth forces retained there thompsons.
thompsons it is then on maps like husky etc
which is why they held it as close to the body as possible (which is why it has that block that sticks out). They were trained to hold it by the magazine.
KEH WHAT? please explain, what block, who was trained, what evidence are you using for this info. Can i just remind you that the British Army still use a derivative of the original Sten because its basic, reliable and effective at close range, and we still get taught not to hold it by the Magazine.

The Sterling SNG first appeared during WW2 as the Patchett machine carbine produced in the 1940s by the Sterling Armament Company of Dagenham. It only entered full service with the British and Canadian Armies after 1953 and slowly replaced the wartime production Sten gun.
MACHINE CARBINE, 9MM, PATCHETT
http://www.gamingforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=6334&stc=1 Placed in limited production during 1940 the Patchett was a weapon that. though it required extensive machining, was reliable under all conditions.
MACHINE CARBINE, 9MM, STERLING, L2
The L2 has been slightly modified over the years and has been manufactured or upgraded to the L2A1, L2A2 and L2A3 versions which are generally indistigiushable from each other.
The gun features a three position selector with Safe, Single Shot and Repetition being the options. This weapon is the one most likely to have been carried by a ferret crew.
MACHINE CARBINE, 9MM, STERLING, POLICE
The Police model Sterling operates only in the semi-automatic mode and only has two positions on the selector switch. UNlikely to have been carried by a Ferret crew.
MACHINE CARBINE, 9MM, STERLING, L34A1
The L34A1 is the silenced version of the L2 and while similar externally the internal workings are modified somewhat to ensure sound is kept to the minimum. It is unlikely a Ferret crew would have the use of one of these.
