SMG 08 18 Codex Entry

One of the most mysterious experimental weapons of WW1 is arguably the German “Maxim-based” Submachine Gun that today resides in the Tula State University in Russia. The action of the weapon is based on the air-cooled MG 08/18 machine gun, but scaled down to the 9 mm Parabellum pistol cartridge. It has an unusual type of feeding, with a multi-column clip holding 8 rows of 10 cartridges each, and after all rounds had been fired the empty clip was pushed out through a slot with a spring-loaded dust cover. It is unknown today who designed the gun and when, how many were made and if it was ever fielded.
