the other day we were discussing about the weapon of russians engenieers, and it seems to be that u are gonna give'em a "pocket" version of the Mossing nagant sorry but dont remember the name, americans have the m1a1 carabine, and Germs? the all terrain k98, but its not fair for the other teams, so i found this Mauser k98 Carabine, i give u k98 rifle and carabine picts and a table of ammo characteristics, i hope the table could be useful to u, making the damage sistem to the target the k98 carabine is smaller, not very different and could be the engeniers weapon of the germs

I'll explain this to you before someone flames you.

The K98k, the rifle that Germans use now, is a Carbine. Its a smaller version of the full one, the G98 (Like the G43.. Get it?). The G98 was used in WW1, the K98 was used in WW2. Shorter is better after all...

As for adding the G98 in, no point. The K98k was accurate enough.

I think the americans engeneers would need a Remington (sp?) shotgun and or the Commander class or 1 out of 3 assault guy should get the M1 Carbine...

Well, I though there was the K98 = Karabiner 98 and the K98k = Karabiner 98 kurz (shortened version of the standard K98).

Whatever, I think the Devs sayd Engineers would be getting shortened versions of the standard issued rifles...

Heh actually if you play BF1918 the Germans use a M98 rifle I think as Rifleman and a K88 as a Pioneer (Engineer). Which rifle German Engineers going to get in 0.65 after all? Is it the Mauser? It is different than the k98 isn't it? In Wolfenstein games the German snipers use a Mauser and it looks different.

The Mauser-brothers are behind the entire 98-series and 88.

G98 is the M98, issued by the military. K98 was originally the carbine of the G98 and was adopted as standard rifle for WWI. however the rifles kept getting shorter and in 1934, i believe the K98k got adopted by the military.

If I remember correctly the K98 is not a real carbine, whichshould be shorter than 40" (1m). The K98 is 1250mm.

The Wolfenstein model and render for the '98 are crap...

Once Bayonets are added only the assault class should get em for their rifles, the engineers with carbines will have to make do with just there knife.

Actually there is a "carbine" version of the K98. It's called the G33/44. It was used by mountain troopers as well as the Fallschirmjagers. It is about 4 inches shorter then the regular K98 I believe. A friend of mine has 2, they're really rare. The main difference is the length, hollowed-out bolt and the butt of the stock. The butt is steel reinforced a lot more then the tradition K98k's was. This is so that Mtn.Troopers could use it as a hiking stick of sorts. Although this is a reproduction (airsoft), the real thing does exist of course, Pictures here: http://www.airsoftdynamics.net/shop/ADSstore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=TWNBBG3344

The Karabiner 1898 Kurz was the last of the long line of Mauser rifles used by the Wehrmacht (Germany Army). The K98k designation translates to: short carbine 1898 model. The origins of the Mauser rifle family date back to the late 19th century. The weapon was introduced by order of the German Emperor in April 1898 as the Gewehr 98 (Rifle). This rifle became the standard infantry weapon of all German forces. A modified, shortened version of the rifle (K98K) was introduced into the Wehrmacht in 1935. K is for Kurz which means "short" in German. Therefore, the length was shorter than the WWI Gewehr 98, had a different front sight, and had a curved, rather than straight bolt action handle with a fixed internal magazine of five rounds. Every soldier who fought for Germany in the Second World War trained with this rifle. In fact for many this was their only weapon throughout the war.
