'[11PzG USMA2010']Suomi was very accurate, but complicated. The reason that the PPSh was made instead of an exact Suomi copy was that the PPSh was easier and cheaper to make. If only the Finns realized this and retooled the Suomi, maybe everyone could have gotten one...

Suomi and ppsh are both extreamly good weapons , if I should say what is best smg in ww2 I couldn´t decide , I would say it was either suomi or ppsh. Suomi: + accurate + reliable + high cyclic rate + quickly detachable barrel - heavy - expencive for a poor country like Finland Ppsh: + quite reliable + cheap + high cyclic rate - these weapon were made about 5 million , suomi smgs were made , well much less , so ppshs weren´t made with care like suomis , so some of them jamed easily. Any way they were both fine weapons and make many of the other smgs look like toys:smokin:

Stein was a toy. Metal pipes, an action, and a magazine and you've got a gun! Type 100 wasn't really even an SMG, rather a throwing device camoflauged as a firearm. MP40 was the same as the Stein, it just looked cooler and was more reliable. The Thompson, on the other hand, was great. Sacrificing a high cyclic rate for a big round.
