The MP 40 (Maschinenpistole 40, German for "Machine Pistol 40") was the standard submachine gun of the European Axis Forces during World War II. It was designed by Heinrich Vollmer for the German army as a cheaper production version to the weapon's predecessor, the MP 38. The MP 40 and MP 38 are iconic images from the Second World War, often featuring prominently in war movies and other media.
