The weapons used by the germans is the weapon of the partisans. as well as reserve weapons of the allies. Like Using the STG 44 as the alternative to the thompson.

Take a note at uniform of the guy with StG 44. It says "USAF", so the pic must have been taken post 1947.

Yes,it must be a post war picture,but it says "U.S.ARMY",not "USAF".The usaf uses a diferent shoulder pach that the one used by the u.s.army.

The jacket style suggests very late 1950s or 1960s, the beret indicates the same and also possibly Special Forces. The shoulder patch on his right shoulder will probablly give up a lot of information.

Here's an unusual one... from Guns.ru. Believe these are Soviet regulars, but I don't read Russian. An MP 40 (yawn) on left -- and a Hungarian 43.M on right?! How often do you see Russians with captured weapons from Axis minors? On the other hand, the Danuvia MPs are often considered some of the best ever made....

I am very surprised to see more pics of American soldiers with captured Mp44's than russians. I thought that the Mp44 was almost exclusively distributed in the Eastern front. Maybe it was, but Americans have more camara's!

That MP40 in Crimea, back on the first page, is quite amazing. What model is it exactly? Only in weird places like Crimea would you find rare weapons like that ha ha.
