|— Weapon Description|
In A.V.A., the MP40 can be purchased in the shop for 150 Red Tickets. It can be upgraded into the MP38/40 for additional Red Tickets.
- Built in Germany starting in 1938, the MP40 is the successor of the MP38. It has a 9x19 Parabellum cartridge and its magazine can hold 32 rounds. Nicknamed the "Schmeisser" by Allied forces because of a previous maker of the MP series, it featured a number of improvements, mostly the materials it was composed of. These improvements cut down on cost, but the gun was still expensive to produce. The MP40 was mainly issued to officers and paratrooper squads due to its price, and also partially because the German Wehrmacht's primary weapon was the Mauser 98k. The German losses at Stalingrad and other key battles in the U.S.S.R. were in some part due to the fact that the Russian tactics were more effective. Often times an entire battalion of Russians could be well equipped, each soldier with a PPS42 or a PPSh41, whereas the Germans never had enough MP40s. In 1943, the Germans began to work on the MP43/44, which would replace both the MP40 and the Mauser 98k.
