The SturmGewehr StG-44 is a German selective fire 7.92x33mm Kurz assault rifle with a 30-round magazine developed during World War II being the first assault rifle ever built. It is also known under the designations MP-43 and MP-44 (MaschinenPistole 43, MaschinenPistole 44 respectively). The StG-44 was the first successful and widely produced design to use a new shorter cartridge, which permitted controllable automatic fire from a weapon more compact than a battle rifle, coupled with the recognition that most aimed rifle fire in combat situations did not exceed a few hundred metres. By all accounts, the StG-44 fulfilled its role effectively, particularly on the Eastern Front, offering a greatly increased volume of fire compared to standard infantry rifles. However, it came too late to have a significant effect on the outcome of the war. Its lasting effect was its major impact on modern infantry small arms development, giving rise to an entire class of weapons using the name assault rifle.
