7.62x 54 is a rimmed case , I'm with you there.

7.62x39 and std nato 7.62 are both rimless and not interchangeable.

the 7.62x39 Soviet was adapted from the 7.92x39 Kurz which was designed for the German Sturmgeschutze of WW2, in fact a lot of the AK47 was taken from this weapon.

Sturmgeschütz = Assault gun = turretless tank. Surprisingly the most numerous armoured vehicle of the war was the StuG, churned out by the gazillion, IIRC nearly half of vehicles issued to German tank units were StuGs. So successful were they that when the factory churning out PzKpw3 chassis was bombed out in 1943, that for a year they continued to churn them out, mounted on PzKpfw4 chassis.

 

Lower profile and more importantly less of a drain on highly-machined parts like bearings on which to rotate a turret.

 

Sturmgewehr = assault rifle, most noticeably the SG44, thanks to MOHAA * usually referred to as StG44. In CoD * ISTR it is referred to as MP44. Redesignated from the FG43 (Fallschirmjägergewehr = paratroop rifle), itself a derivative of the FG42, Hitler was fed up of rifles as wonder-weapons, wanting monster tanks and jet aircraft to win the war and banned the development of new rifles, so they called it a machine pistol, hence MP44 is a valid reference.

 

The German assault rifles did use short rifle rounds, unlike their nearest Allied equivalents, the Bren and the BAR, which used full rifle rounds. Because the British have never had a service assault rifle prior to the SA80, we do not have the complication of long and short rounds.

 

* first person WW2 computer games, for those who didn't know.

The English: A nation divided by a common language. This is my only contribution to this thread, which is excellent but in danger of going :offtopic: Keep up the info chaps. I'll leave out the cockinese or estuary English innit.

What a great thread. If only I can work out how to post pictures, I have some wartime rounds that someone may be able to identify. Dave

posting photos from Photobucket is easy...

 

width=640 height=285http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e132/safariswing/set%202/4a1bf04e.jpg[/img]

 

when you paste your code should look like this..

 

 

[img=http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e132/safariswing/set%202/4a1bf04e.jpg]

 

 

Put each line of code (each photo) on a seperate line or the photos will end up all over the place...

 

Like this...

Ok Ok Ok, first of all, my computer skills are :computerterror: Then I tried to take a decent photo but need good daylight. Artificial and flash are just not getting the resolution as the round is a rifle round. Wait until the weekend 'cos its too dark when I get home.
