Real World History
The STG44, or Sturmgewehr 1944, means Assault Rifle 1944 in english. ("Sturm" can be translated as "Storm", meaning a natural phenomenon, but here it derived from "Sturmangriff", meaning "Assault" in english) The original name was the MP44 ("Maschinenpistole 44" = Submachine Gun 44) as the designers of this gun wanted to act in accordance with the classical conventions for naming firearms. However, upon seeing its performance, Hitler renamed the gun to the Assault Rifle, as a propaganda tool, making it unwillingly the "father" of the assault rifles.
This was one of the few "Wunderwaffen" that worked, and worked well. Wunderwaffe means Wonder Weapon in english.
STG44 was the first rifle to bridge submachine guns like the mp40, and bolt action rifles, like the k98k. It fired the 7.92kurz, which was essentially a shortened version of the 7.92 caliber fired from the K98.
The design of the STG did not inspire Mikhail Kalashnikov's design of the AK47, as is commonly believed. Kalashnikov vehemently denied it when asked.
