The MP 40 (Maschinenpistole 40, German for "Machine Pistol 40") was the standard Sub-machine gun of the European Axis Forces during World War II. It was designed by Heinrich Vollmer for the German army. The MP 40 is an iconic image from the Second World War; so it often features prominently in war movies.
Battlefield 1942EditThe MP 40 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1942 and is issued to the Wehrmacht and Afrika Korps Medic kits. It has a good rate of fire, medium damage, low recoil and low accuracy. It remains a very effective close-quarters weapon, but it is relatively ineffective at long ranges as its accuracy deteriorates quickly; even going prone and firing in bursts will frequently result in wasting ammo.

Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWIIEdit
The MP 40 is a weapon featured in the official Battlefield Vietnam World War II Mod, issued to the Imperial Japanese Army's Medic kit. It has a different model and different reload animations from its Battlefield 1942 counterpart, but is very similar in performance and stats.
