WWII Pistols


A variety of infantry weapons were used by each country involved in WWII. Some examples include machine guns, grenades, rifles, close-quarters weapons and handguns. For instance, Albania used handguns such as the Glisenti Model 1910 and the Beretta M1934, whereas the Republic of China used handguns such as the Nagant M1895 and the Luger P08. Nazi Germany favored pistols, such as the Walther P38 and the Mauser HSc, over handguns. Unlike other countries, Japan included flamethrowers and swords in its arsenal of weapons during WWII.

Some aircraft bombers used by the United States included the Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, the Douglas TBD Devastator and the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. The Flying Fortress was built to replace the Martin B-10. Both the Boeing 247 transport and the XB-15 bomber were used as inspiration for the design of the new bomber. It included five mounted machine guns for defense and was capable of lifting a bomb load of 4, 800 pounds.
