The StG 44 (abbreviation of Sturmgewehr 44)

Battle of Berlin, April 1945. German soldier carrying the StG 44 assault rifle. The first assault rifle in history, the StG 44 served as the prototype upon which the famous Russian AK-47 was based. Reserved for Waffen SS units when it first appeared in 1944, the StG 44 was far superior to anything the Allies had at the time.
