An adapted version of the original 1915 Chauchat. It fired more powerful cartridges and featured a closed, flimsy magazine. It had many defects; it was not uncommon for units to ditch the weapon in favour of rifles.

Edit

Hotchkiss M1909 "Benét–Mercié" Edit

Edit

Maschinengewehr 08/18 Edit

Maschinengewehr 08-18

A modified version of the heavy and cumbersome MG08/15. The water cooled barrel was replaced by an air cooled variant and fitted with a carrying handle, making the weapons much lighter and easier to handle. Very few eventually saw action on the front, with most being used to counter the Allied 100-day offensive in 1918.

Edit

Tankgewehr M1918 Edit

Tankgewehr M1918

The TankGewehr M1918 was, in essence, an enlarged version of the Gewehr 98. It fired the 13mm TuF armour piercing round (Tank und Flieger (Tank and Aircraft)), which would readily handle most light/medium armour.

Edit

Browning Automatic Rifle M1918 "BAR" Edit

Browning Automatic Rifle M1918 BAR

The BAR proved its worth during the Meuses-Argonne offensive, providing U.S. troops with a reliable automatic firearm. The BAR's impact on the overall war was small, but in the brief action it saw it was so successful that many countries would go on to place orders of the firearm during and after the war.

Mousqueton Mle. 1892 M16 "Berthier" Edit

Mousqueton Mle. 1892 M16 Berthier

The French Berthier M16 was a higher capacity and slightly updated version of the M1892 Berthier Mousqueton. The Berthier M16 saw an additional 2 rounds added to the capacity of the Mle 1892 Mousqueton - a considerable difference, bringing the rifle on par with other carbines of the time.

Mauser Model 1889 Edit

Mauser Model 1889

The Mauser Gewehr 1889 was developed by the Mauser company for Belgium in the latter parts of the 1880s. Like many European nations around the time, Belgium was looking to modernize its forces. Requiring a bolt action rifle that would match any potential enemies' arsenal, the G89 was Belgium's solution.

Edit

Karabiner 1888 Edit

Karabiner 1888

Developed alongside the Gewehr 88, the Kar 88 was designed for use with cavalry units. With a shorter barrel, lighter weight and reshaped bolt handle, it fulfilled its role well - it did, however, retain the barrel sleeve. With several carbine variants produced later on, it often saw its way to the front lines of the Great War.

Mauser Model 1889 Carabine Mle. 16

M1910 Mark III Ross

The Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) was equipped with the Ross as they embarked for the western front in 1915.

Edit

Model 1903 "Springfield" Edit

Model 1903 Springfield

Renowned for its accuracy and reliability, the Springfield was loved by both the US Army and US Marine Corps.

Edit

Reichsrevolver M1883 Edit

Reichsrevolver M1883

The original M1879 design was heavy and cumbersome. In the early 1880s, Germany decided to make the revolver a little easier to handle by reducing its weight - thus the M1883 came to be. A single action revolver, 'old tech' for its time, it did its job until the Mauser C96 and P08 Luger came along.

Edit

Fusil Automatique Mle. 1917 "RSC" Edit

A popular private purchase for officers who had the funds available. This pistol was employed by the British Navy at the time of the war. Chambering the same powerful .455 round as the Webley revolver, and offering 7 rounds at the users disposal, it was a marginal improvement on the Webley Mk VI.

Eierhandgranate M1917 Edit

Eirhandgranate M1917

Edit

M1917 Geballte Ladung 6x Edit

No. 34 Egg Grenade Edit

Edit

Winchester Model 1897 "Trench Gun" Edit

WInchester Model 1897 Trench Gun

The Winchester Model 1897 was utterly devastating when used within an enemy trench. European military leaders on both sides considered shotgun use to be 'barbaric'. German forces would often execute U.S. soldiers caught with shotguns or shotgun ammunition.

Edit

Stielhandgranate M1917 Edit

Stielhandgranate M1917

While the M15 has the simple string taped to the stick, the M1917 model used a cap at the bottom of the stick to prevent both humidity from affecting the string as well as offering better safety. The cap's prongs lining its bottom allowed for better grip in the muddy trenches.
