Gun Emporium Forging
|“||A replica from WWII and a model for the AK-47. Few weapons are as simple and reliable as this gun.||”|
Although known as one of the first assault rifles ever made, it can still be a formidable weapon against modern in-game guns. After being converted from the '74U, it has a slight increase of firepower, now on par with the well-established G36E. It retains several traits from its base rifle, namely its high efficiency in close quarters and slight drawbacks of fast increase of bullet spread while firing automatically; the use of an optic (ACOG for range, iTech for better recoil control) and Tap Firing can remedy the lackluster performance at mid-to-far ranges.

- The STG was considered a potential game-changer during the Second World War, it is debated that if the German Army leaders have decided to invest more money on them and mass-produce them earlier and instead of other weapons of war, the lethality of the Axis' ground infantry might have changed.
- It is anachronistic to find the in-game STG's with modern day optics and suppressors on them, unless drastic modifications, like rail integration and the making of subsonic WWII-era ammunition, were made to accommodate them (knowing Bubba Ares' infamous line of strangely-built weapons, it's little surprise it's possible in the CA universe).
- It's very possible that this gun is a port from Sudden Attack, Nexon's recently acquired FPS. Since they both use the same engine (Lithtech), it's not out of question when you look over the similarities. For more details, look at the forum thread for complete a comparision: http://combatarms.nexon.net/Community/#%2Fshowthread.php%3F199813-STG-44-and-Howa-Type-89-SA-to- CA-Gun-Ports Stg-44 has same stats as the AUG A1 Black, but just a little less fire rate than the AUG A1 Black.
- The STG-44 is often (falsely) interchanged with the title of MP-44 (Maschinenpistole 44). The reason for this being was that there were fears of Adolf Hitler rejecting the project due to his strong position against new cartridges and his support of submachine guns due to some administration issues within the Third Reich. Hitler later approved the rifle, and renamed it Sturmgewehr (Lit. Storm [Assault] Rifle) for propaganda purposes. Thus that is where the term Assault Rifle originated, with the STG-44 being the first.
