The StG 44 is a German assault rifle.
The Sturmgewehr 44 was commonly regarded as the world's first assault rifle produced in large numbers, born out of the need to engage enemies with high rate of fire between the range of submachine gun and rifles while maintaining high accuracy. While it came too late to make an impact on the war, it left a lasting profound effect on modern firearm designs and development.
The StG 44 serves as the primary weapon for the German assault class in late war scenarios in Battlegroup42.
