One glaring problem that I see is that 'Gewehr' assumes the use of K98k rifles only. There were also G.41 and G.43 rifles that were semiautomatic and were chambered in the same caliber as all of the issued MGs, standardizing the type of ammunition carried. Those two types of rifles bridged the gap between a bolt-action rifle like the K98k and a select-fire rifle like the MKb-42/MP43/StG-44.
