i think itd be cool if the colt 1911 was added to the british arsenel. but not just any 1911. the british imported 1911s chambered in .455 during ww1 (13,300), and after the war continued importing with around 30,000 being delivered by the start of ww2. during the mid war time almost all of the .455 colts were re-alocated to the RAF and the RNAS. so by the start of ww2 the majority of the RAF and RNAS pilots, and officers and NCOs were armed with colt .455s
Don't see why not once the Colt is modelled. Perhaps for certain pickup pilot kits on certain maps.
Another sidearm used by both Axis and Allies would be cool : the Fabrique Nationale Browning HP 35 Belgium, UK, Canada, Germany and China used this handgun (and it's still in dotation, in a modernized version, in the belgian police and army, and in the UK army) On this famous Ardennes 1944 picture, the SS soldier on the left is holding a FN Browning HP 35
Which IIRC was the first high-capacity semi-automatic pistol by something like 30-40 years.
Useless Military Anecdote: During WWII one of those Eastern British Generals like Wavell, Alexander or Slim (sorry I've forgotten which), asked his aide d' camp, "Have you seen my Browning? I can't seem to find it." The whole staff turned the General's quarters upside down looking for a pistol, when suddenly the smiling General came into the room, held up a book and said, "Found it!" Ah, those British.
Nooo!! I like the revolver! It's like the PIAT/n00b stick/Banzai Bomb! If you kill someone with it, you're a true Forgotten Hope Warrior!
RAF pilot kits get Colt 1911?
