Hello Soldiers! How are you?
It is update news of Medal of Honor: World War I MOD.
The MP18.1 manufactured by Theodor Bergmann Waffenbau Abteilung was the first practical submachine gun used in combat.
It was introduced in service in 1918 by the German Army during World War I as the primary weapon of the Stosstruppen, assault groups specialized in trench combat.
While MP18 production ended in the 1920s, its design was the base of most of the submachine guns between 1920 and 1960.
The MP18 primarily served in final stages of World War I in 1918, especially in the so-called Kaiserschlacht offensive.
At least 5,000 MP18.1 were built and used during World War I, based upon observed serial number ranges of captured weapons.
However, it is possible that up to 10,000 were built for the war. Though production was outlawed by the Treaty of Versailles, manufacture continued in secret into the early 1920s, as the final production total (again, based upon observed serial numbers) ended at around 35,000.
