The MP18 is a Bergmann Submacninegun that dates back to 1918, the end of World War I, it was the first commercially produced SMG in the world. Germany was banned from having any MP18s through the Treaty of Versailles, so Germany sold the rights to SIG, who manufactured and sold them well into the 1920s, most notably to Japan.
That's how they got them. I think they were a lot more common then Type 100 Smgs, but they were from the '20s and probably not kept in good condition.
do you have a link to this?
So Japanese are using German SMGs, as they bought rights for making them? Blaah, I'd like to see real Japanese Type 100, no matter it wasn't as common as MP18.
vesseliLook, I want to ask you guys is MP18 REALLY Japanese SMG? I tought it was Russian weapon as it was in "vanilla" BF with Russians? Answer, please!
wrong, it was a german weapon dating back from the last year of WW1. japanese should by using type 100s. mcgibs said the type 100 should be ready for .7 :) oops ohioan beat me to it :uhm:
Yes I know that already now. Still, thanks for answering!
type 38 is a rifle... I'm not so sure Mp18 were more common either, one source stated that Japanese imported Mp28's and those would be more common then I think
i must have been thinking of something else then.
TommyGunDalianiI hope you know that almost all 5.56 rifles have abot 1000-1200jewels, iff that same 5.56 had say 4500 it would tear off limbs with ease. The speed of the round intertwines with the jewels, muzzle velocity will create more jewels and has some to do with the overall power. Jewels is overall power dumbass not muzzle velocity.
Wow. You should stop posting and read some physics books. What in the hell are you talking about? jewels? wtf?
It seems that we will be again defending against Sherman tanks with a katana.
Don't think I will be playing the japanese even in the new release version.
