  • I know for a fact that there are still Stens, Brens and all sorts of others being used by insurgent/guerrilla forces in Africa and the Middle East. As for organized militarys, the Nepalese Army still uses the Bren.

          Stg44 Assault Rifle with infrared sighting, called "Vampir" /Vampire. I think it was used in april/may of 1945 in Berlin. Am I right?

              • Hard to tell because of the angle and small size of the picture but it looks like a Haenel MKb 42(H) which was sort of a proof of concept design preceding the StG-44.

                • No, it is not a Haenel MKb 42(H).

                  • Well it's definitely not an Mp-43, Mp-44, or StG-44 and they're the only other weapons in that distinctive family. I can't imagine what else it could be.

                      Me neither. Looks almost airsoft toyish to me. It's like an Stgw 44 with the gas tube tucked underneath it.

                      • Which is why I guessed the MKb-42(H) because it essentially is an StG-44 with a gas tube underneath.

                        • The gun is a Stug 44 assault rifle.

                            Can't be. Certainly not the production version.

                            • Well that was the name under the picture.

                              • Here is an StG 44. Note the relative position and size of the gas tube.



                                And here is a Haenel MKb 42(H). The gas tube is still on top of the barrel (I was wrong about it being underneath in an earlier post) but is much longer and like the one in your picture.

                                I think Frisco17 had it right.
