World War 2 guns and weapons


The paratrooper came into his own during the fighting of World War 2 (1939-1945) and were used by all sides of the conflict to take key positions by surprise. This class of infantry posed some problems for warplanners for they needed to be lightly armed due to their limited carrying capacity yet still hold enough firepower to overtake enemies. As such, various solutions were engineered throughout the war to supply airborne infantry with capable weapons in which to take the fight to the enemy, capture terrain, and hold out for the arrival of the main fighting force. Airborne elements were key to the early German invasions across Europe, in the Normandy landings, and during the famous "Bridge Too Far" campaign.

There are a total of (11) World War 2 U.S. Airborne Infantry Weapons (1939-1945) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order. Weaponry such as hand grenades and mortars are also included in this listing though portable artillery and light-class vehicles are not. These are featured elsewhere on this site.
