ww2  Hungarian weapon and equipment by AndreaSilva60 ww2  Hungarian weapon and equipment by AndreaSilva60
WWII technical table

dedicated to Christopher and to Daniel

The Danuvia 39M submachine gun 9x25mm Mauser  was issued to the Hungarian Army in
 1939.  The weapon was modified in 1943 as 43M and provided with a folding butt and
 an angled magazine. The 39M was long 750 mm and weighted 3,65 kg unloaded.  
The magazine stored 40 bullets.

The Fèg 35M was a bold action rifle chambered in 8x56mmR.  It was an hungarian 
improvement of the  Mannlicher M95, the old straight-pull bolt was substitued by the
 simpler and robust Mannlicher-Schoenauer rotating bolt.  The magazine stored a 5
 rounds clip, it was long 1.105 mm and it weighted 3.1 Kg unloaded.

The Frommer stop in caliber 7.65mm Browning, adopted as Pisztoly 12M in 1912 by 
the Magyar Királyi Honvédség, was a long-recoil automatic pistol, it weighted 650 g and it was long 
165 mm, it served the Hungarian Army in the WWII too.  

The Frommer, Fég 37M  .380 ACP was the ordnance sidearm of the Hungarian army during
 WWII, it weighted 770 g and it was long 182 mm, the magazine stored 7 bullets.
 About 200.000 Frommer in caliber 7.65mm were built for the German Army too.

The  MG30,  designed by the German firm Rheinmetall, was produced in Swiss by the 
Solothurn and in Austria by the Steyr-Puch to bypass the Versailles Treaty. It was
 adopted by the Magyar Királyi Honvédség  as Solothurn 31M Golyószóró.  It was long 1162 mm 
and it weighted 10 kg unloaded. It was loaded with 30 rounds slightly curved magazine
 inserted in the left side of the weapon. 

This soldier is a Gendarme of the Hungarian Army Field Police, which had the task to
 maintain the discipline in the army. 
The military policemen wore the same uniform of the other armies, but they had a 
peculiar black hat adorned with a  plume, when the militaries were on the field they 
used a common campaign hat, eventually adorned with the plume.  The gendarme wore the 
Hungarian version of the  Feldgendarmerie gorget, in German language it was scornfully 
called kettenhunde – that means dog chain.

He looks sad, because war can be the adventure of a life, but it’s often a 
Voyage a l’Enfer. Of course the author  is omniscient, and he knows how it
will end the story, and so he might project his feelings on the characters.

Yes it's true, they were designed by Pál Király,  the same engineer who designed the San Cristobal Carbine, widespread in the South and Central America,
there is a beatiful monography in Forgotten Weapon: www.forgottenweapons.com/rifle…

I really don't know if it was due to analogy or homology.

Это не советское оружие вовсе, и не русское, с чего вы взяли??

Я не знаю русского, и я надеюсь, что переводчик хорошо переводится.
Название указывает на Россию как боевую зону,
солдат и оружие - венгры.

добро пожаловать!
Если у вас будет терпение в какое-то время, я также нарисую оружие красной армии
во время Второй мировой войны.

Между тем, я уже разработал российское оружие первой мировой войны.

Yep the 20th was a bad century to be Hungarian, they lost their half of the Austro-Hungarian Empire after WW1, and got minced by their "friends" and by the Soviets during WW2.  No wonder this soldier looks a bit depressed.

You are right one more time, it's the same weapon, the fact is that Germany to by-pass the Versailles' treaty that forbade Germany to produce machines gun,  they were designed in Germany but producted in Swiss and in Austria, then the Swiss and Austrian firm sold this light-machine to many European Armies.

Ah Old Boy beautiful work, it's interesting to see the others countries involved on the Eastern Front. And I see that the Hungarians were still better equipped than the Romanians.

Thank you my friend.   Hungarian army was similar to Italian army, and better armed than Romanian army.   But Russian made meat boll of both, the Turan II tank was a quite good medium tank, but its 75 mm cannon was unable to pierce the frontal armor of a T-34, and only 140 were built.

380 and 32ACP standard pistols?  I almost feel sorry for those issued with those weapons.

:iconandreasilva60:
AndreaSilva60 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2016
I agree, a  38 or even worse a 32 ACP were  really under-powered for military use.

werejaguar Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2016
Yes they were, I get that at that time many did not know about ballistics and what was needed to kill an enemy and that handguns in Europe were largely to officers and troops in the rear, but still, if in a situation were I had to shoot some one with a handgun from that time it would at least be a 9x19mm in pistol or 38 special revolver

Twas actually quite common back then. Even the French, adopted the 32 "Ruby" Pistol in WW1.

Oh I know they were common, its just I never would want to be armed with something of that caliber, by WWII I would have wanted a 9X19 mm at the least

KyCabrera Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2016
Ahh, my bad. 9x19mm is essentially the standard, I suppose.

:iconwerejaguar:
werejaguar Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2016
No its ok, honestly, 9X19 is my minimum I would take it in a Browning High Power or a M1911A1 in 45 ACP either would be good
Reply
:iconandreasilva60:
Italy used the .380 ACP, we call it 9x17 mm or 9 corto.
I agree that a .45 ACP or a .455 webley  has a great stopping power,  of course, the shot is not instinctive and it is necessary an expansive  training,  unfortunately several armies have often  spared too ammunition, or chosen the cheaper ammunition.

:iconwerejaguar:
werejaguar Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2016
So I have heard, a lot of that was due to armies and the general public not knowing about ballistics and what it really takes to kill someone and that many armies in Europe handguns are for rear troops and officers.

Yes, as good a stopper the 45 caliber weapons are, many have decided capacity is more important than killing power.

AndreaSilva60 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2016
Yes, sadly true,  many general were  short sighted not to invest in good ammonitions. 
I think the best invention of Germany during WW2 was the 7,92x33 mm  Kurz Patrone, a genial idea.

well, more or less indipendent, on the Don front, together with Romanian, Italian and German.  They lost about 300.000 men.

Ah i see, i guess most of troops of the Axis powers were more or less under command of the Germans back then, following Hitler becoming their main leader!

Lol, yes, kinda ironic how Hitler first considered Mussolini his model, then in the later phases of the war they just switched places, and Hitler became all of a sudden the Führer(leader) of the Axis powers.

Lol, yes,  after the release of Mussolini from the prison of the Gran Sasso, he became just a puppet in the and of his old allied.
Can I suggest you an Italian for Iran History?  I mean Enrico Mattei, the director of the Italian Petrol Agengy, the AGIP.
He  signed an agreement with the Iranian government for one Exploitation fair of Iranian oil, fifty-fifty% drawing the hatred of the 7 sisters, then signed a prior agreement with the Algerian Liberation Committee, finally, who knows he died in an attack.
