I have a nice suggestion to the Briths, namly the De Lisle Carabine.

Even i've played MoH Breakfrought and in one mission you have the De Lisle. The Weapon is silencer (i love my german-english dictionary) and they rocks on MoH.

A few Infos

More unusual weapons of World War II but very little has ever been written on the subject. The weapon was designed by one William Godfray De Lisle who was, in 1943, an engineer in the Ministry of Aircraft Production, During that period he patented a silencer for a 5.59-mm (0.22-in) rifle, and this attracted the attention of persons interested in producing silent weapons for use during the commando raids which were then being conducted around the coasts of occupied Europe. Further development of the basic De Lisle silencer resulted in a drastic modification of a Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mark III rifle to accommodate the firing of an 0.45-in (11.43-mm) pistol cartridge. The basic bolt action was retained, but in place of the large box magazine a small magazine casing was substituted. Forward of the bolt action was the silencer itself, and this comprised a series of discs held within a tubular housing that allowed the gases produced on firing to 'swirl' around beforethey were discharged from portsaround the muzzle. Firing the subsonic 0.45-in (11,43-mm) pistol cartridge withthis silencer system produced very little noise at all, and even this soundedquite unlike a firearm being discharged. There was also no flash. The first De Lisle carbines were produced in one of the tool rooms of the Ford works at Dagenham. From there the early prototypes were takenfor field testing in commando raids along the north French coast. They proved themselves remarkably successful, and even these early weapons were used in what was to be their mainoperational role, a form of silent sniping to pick off sentries or other personnel during the early stages of a raid. As the De Lisle carbine fired a pistol cartridge its maximum effective range was limited to 250 m (275 yards), but this was usually more than enough for raids carried out on dark nights. With trials successfully completed, a production order for 500 carbines was placed and this was later increased to 600. The 'production' programme of modifying the Lee-Enfield rifles was carried out by the Sterling Armament Some folding stocked De Lisles (top)were used in the Far East, having been designed for paratroops. The early model (below) has been cutaway to show the silencer mechanism. Works, also in Dagenham, but when the programme got under way things had changed, By the time the De Lisle carbines 220 were being produced it was mid-1944 and the invasion of Europe had taken place. With the Allies safely ashore there was far less need for a silenced commando weapon and the order was cancelled. By then about 130 had been completed and issued, but as they lacked a role in Europe most were sent to the Far East, where they were used by specialist units in Burma and elsewhere. Many were retained in the area after the war to see action once more during the Malayan Emergency.Some of these weapons did not have the solid butt of the earlier weapons, having instead a metal butt that folded under the weapon, This version had originally been produced for parachute troops, but only a small number was ever made. Very few De Lisle carbines now exist, even in the most comprehensive small-arms collections. Most of them appear to have been destroyed during the post-war years, probably as theresult of their potential as assassination weapons.

i suppose this is just the door-opener for silenced weapons!

other weapons is the obvious Sten and a welrod.

This site features several interesting details on the Welrod, including an animation showing the firing procedure of it, facts, and an audio-file where one of these is fired.

after it is fired one can clearly hear the gases escape from the silencer.

Commando maps? As in SWoWW2 type maps, where you infiltrate enemy base to destroy objectives, like Telemark? Gosh, I loved that expack, well worth the 30 bucks. :)

You know, D-Fens, the DeLise waa fiarly commen amoung the SAS. Also, it was the quietest gun of all time, you can barly here it firing. I vote yet, put it in on like a Telemark map, that it a raid that was not made up by DICE.
