Ya, Tompson was pretty cool. A great gun for sure. It fired .45 pistol rounds if I am not mistaken.

DUDE! SOMEONE ACTUALLY RECOGNIZES IT! Ya, StGw-44. Also known as the Sturm Gewher. It is the first assault rifle ever made. It was a Nazi gun. Translated into english it means storm rifle. When first made, Hitler did not want to buy it for his military. But the producer of the gun still sold it to the military, going against Hitler's orders. Until a few years later when Hitler learned that his army was still receiving this gun and he demanded to be allowed to test one for himself after being told his military loved it. He also loved the gun and started equiping his soldiers with them.

Yes .45 acp. Very accurate and controllable SMG. Very loud though, especially in closed in areas.

You know, when I was little, my brother told me that the M1-Garand could kill someone with one shot no matter where it hit... now I know he was joking....
