I am playing a Polish campaign and I decided to arm a German PS & NPS each with a MP40 got bother cards out noticed one says 9x9mm ammo the other says 5x9mm ammo. Which is correct?

Well, the Germans were known to pack a few extra magazines in their gas mask pouch in addition to the standard 6-mag loudout .... d10-9Xd10-9 FTW!

Definitely a SNAFU!

Card 8-20 is correct - 5 x 9mm

Card 8-21 is incorrect
Either change to 5 x 9mm
Or Do not start with 1 XP (if you really must have 9 ammo!)


Compare it the W-161 M3 SMG "Grease gun" which is otherwise the same except it is 5 x .45 ammo

When designing the WW2 Stats the WF SF stats heavily influenced the outcome

So while the std pouch held 6 magazines and there would be one or a double in the gun... For game balance and mechanic - 5 ammo counters were decided on.

Why the SF vs WWII need for consistency - because WWII weapons are still found in service and for time travellers...

Actually I was joking about the 9xAmmo which was clearly a typo. Although the creative use of the gas mask pouch is true.

I assumed it was 5 though they are a pain when using the Jamming rules but good for getting kills especially against fearless hostiles.

I do not have the footlocker or expansions6-8 (US 2, Germna 2, UK 2) and do not have any MP-40s could one of you guys check the id numbers on your MP-40 cards and tell me what expansions they came in?

I'll need expansion #8 unless I equip the Germans with captured SMG's!

What do you need MP40's for when you have 1898 Mauser bolt action rifles.

Brad - by you flag you are in OZ.

Have you received the game yet?
If so - where down under?

Ps the MP43 is in the earlier German expansion

Could any of you guys check features of MP 40 SMG? Two my NPS from #3 expansion are equipped with it but there is no appropriate card there, so I can't play with these guys:/

There was planned to be MP40's in Expansion 3, however the StG 44 Rifle appeared there do to popular demand , and the MP40 ended up in expansion 8 .
You have a couple of options:
A/ NPS Martin (3-10) could use a StG 44 Rifle (3-27/28) instead of a MP40 (8-2). {Both are 2 RP weapons so the NPS RP doesn't change}
B/ NPS Martin (3-10) could use a M3 SMG (W-161) instead of a MP40 (8-2).
{They have the same game stats - just ignore the national difference}
C/ Buy Expansion 8! (actually - don't do that unless you want to - instead use either of the above)

Glad I came across this thread. I was about to send off an irritated email to DVG after testing out my German PS deck (exp 3) which dangled the famous Schmeissers in front of me but then omitted them from the weapons deck. Thought the US grease gun would probably have nearly identical stats...

Nonetheless, one MP40 card and one STG44 card (rather than 2) might have been a better arrangement in the deck, considering the rules specifically foreshadow multiple soldiers "sharing" a weapon card.
