The Haenel MP28/II was an German submachine gun that was designed by Hugo Schmeisser in 1928. It was an improved version of the SIG M1920, itself derived from the World War I-era MP 18. The MP28/II differed from hte MP18 in that it fed from straight box magazines, featured a fire selector, and used a wide diameter return spring rather than a guide rod.
Initially, the MP28/II was produced in Belgium to get around the Treaty of Versailles, which heavily restricted domestic production of small arms in Germany. After the Nazi Party got into power in 1933, the Treaty was disregarded and production of the MP28/II moved to the Haenel plant in Germany. The gun was never formally adopted by the Wehrmacht, but it saw use by German police and Waffen-SS units during World War II, and was also a successful export, seeing sales in Bolivia, Romania, Spain, and Portugal, among others. Production lasted from 1928 to 1940.
— In-game description
- The MP28's Road to Battlefield V promotional image in Battlefield 1 actually shows an MP 18, as evidenced by the angled magazine well and the lack of a fire selector above the trigger guard.
