I have to say, because I'm all American and being well biased from the beginning is hands downs The Thomson! Long barrel and super sized man stoping caliber makes it just impossible for me to say if I had to go house to house or pillbox and whatever such during WWII, I'd be carrying an M1A1 Thomson.

Default WWII submachine guns

Well, Since the B.A.R. is not a submachine gun I would stick with the Thompson. I would not choose Kraut, Jap, or Ruskie arms since they were all no good SOB's.
Glad to see so much knowledge in one place.

Well, if it hadn't been for those "no good SOB Russkies", we

would have lost WWII. Balkan and Soviet arms are quite

competitive in the shooter's world, so you may want to examine some

of their designs in an unbigoted, open-minded, unemotional fashion...

And if it hadn't been for those nazi's, we wouldn't have the olympic torch or Volkswagen.

We aren't talking about if we agree with the people using them, just the superior weapons.
