Only reason the page was left in vegetative state was because I was forced away from the computer and did not have time to complete it, and wanted to save the work done. Even said in the list I'd personally add more to the page. Please don't delete. --Sergeant Simpleton (talk) 11:45, 20 November 2016 (EST)

Even in the worst case I'm sure you'll have nothing to worry about - The main page, if deleted, will most likely have all the stuff presently on there archived here in the discussion page as has been done elsewhere. In which case you won't actually lose anything. StanTheMan (talk) 17:44, 21 November 2016 (EST)



Men of War: Assault Squad 2
Release Date: 2014
Developer: Digitalmindsoft
Series: Men of War
Platforms: PC
Genre: Real-Time Strategy

Men of War: Assault Squad 2 is a real-time strategy game set during the Second World War, released by Digitalmindsoft in 2014. It is the sequel to Men of War: Assault Squad, and is the latest edition in the Men of War series. It features five playable factions by default: the USA, Germany, the Soviet Union, Japan, and the British Commonwealth.

In 2016, an HD clone, Assault Squad 2: Men of War Origins was released, adding DirectX11 support and improving the models and textures for many of the game's units, and some vehicles and weapons. Previous owners of Assault Squad 2 received the HD assets for free.


Colt M1911A1

Heavily-weathered Colt M1911A1 pistols act as the standard sidearm of US forces.

World War II Colt M1911A1 - .45 ACP

Enfield No.2

Enfield No.2 revolvers, erroneously named "Webley Mk I" in-game, appear as the standard sidearm of Commonwealth forces.

Enfield No.2 Revolver - .38 S&W

High Standard HDM

High Standard HDM pistols fitted with suppressors are used by US scout units.

High Standard HDM with integrated silencer - .22 LR


German Leuchtpistole flare guns are used by radio signallers on all five sides, obviously incorrect for any faction but Germany (though the flare guns are almost never used in regular gameplay.)

Leuchtpistole - 26.65mm

Luger P08

Luger P08 handguns are carried by German officers.

Luger P08 - 9x19mm

Nagant M1895

The Nagant M1895 revolver appears as a sidearm for certain Soviet units, namely officers. A suppressed NKVD variant is used by Soviet scouts.

Nagant M1895 Revolver - 7.62x38R Nagant
Nagant M1895 Revolver with NKVD-issued suppressor - 7.62x38R Nagant

Nambu Type 14

Nambu Type 14 pistols appear as the standard Japanese sidearms.

Late Model Nambu Type 14 - 8x22mm Nambu.

Tokarev TT-33

The Tokarev TT-33 acts as the standard sidearm for Soviet forces.

Tokarev TT-33- 7.62x25mm

Walther P38

The Walther P38, strangely named "Valter" in-game, acts as the standard German sidearm.

Walther P38- 9x19mm


Integrally-suppressed Welrod Mark II handguns are used by Commonwealth scout units.

Welrod pistol Mark II - .32 ACP.

Rifles / Carbines

Arisaka Type 2

The Arisaka Type 2 is used by Japanese paratroopers.

Arisaka Type 02 Paratrooper Takedown rifle - 7.7x58mm

Arisaka Type 99

Japanese forces employ the Arisaka Type 99 (standard length variant) as their standard rifle.

Arisaka Type 99 - 7.7x58mm

Arisaka Type 99 Sniper Rifle

The Arisaka Type 99 Sniper Rifle is the standard sniper rifle for Japanese forces.

Arisaka Type 99 Sniper Rifle - 7.7x58mm

De Lisle

De Lisle Carbines are used by Commonwealth commandos.

De Lisle Carbine - .45 ACP


German Falschirmjager units employ second-model FG42 battle rifles.

Second-model FG-42 with bayonet deployed - 7.92x57mm Mauser

Gewehr 43

The Gewehr 43 is employed by several German elite units. A scoped variant is used by Fallschirmjager (paratrooper) units.

Gewehr 43 - 7.92x57mm Mauser
Gewehr 43 with ZF 4 scope - 7.92x57mm Mauser

Karabiner 98k

The Karabiner 98k appears as the standard rifle of German forces. Though correct for most purposes, it also appears as the standard rifle of the Volkssturm, when in fact Karabiner 98ks were only used by a few Volkssturm units (most used older Gewehr 98s, other Mauser-pattern rifles, or a very large and nonstandard variety of domestic, foreign, and improvised firearms.) A variant with a ZF-42 scope is used as the Wehrmacht's sniper rifle.

Karabiner 98k - 7.92x57mm Mauser
Karabiner 98k with ZF-42 scope - 7.92x57mm Mauser

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III

The Short Magazine Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III (SMLE) appears as the standard rifle of Commonwealth forces, for some reason named the "EM-2" (perhaps confused with the Enfield EM-2). While a common rifle during the war, the No.1 Mk.III was officially superseded by the No.4 Mk.I by the time the war began, so the No.1's appearance as the standard rifle is somewhat erroneous. A sniper (T) variant also appears as the "EM-3", which is even more unusual, as most Lee-Enfield snipers during WW2 were built off of No.4 Mk.Is rather than No.1 Mk.IIIs.

Short Magazine Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III - .303 British
Short Magazine Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III(T) sniper variant - .303 British

M1 Garand

The M1 Garand is the standard rifle of US forces.

M1 Garand - .30-06

M1A1 Carbine

M1A1 Carbines are used by US 82nd Airborne paratroopers. They have an anachronistic bayonet lug, a feature of Korean War-era rifles.

M1A1 Carbine with folding stock - .30 Carbine

M2 Carbine

M2 Carbines are used by US Army Rangers, somewhat erroneously. The M2 Carbine was produced as early as 1944, but arrived in Europe too late to see combat, and only saw very limited use in the Pacific. Like the M1A1, these also have anachronistic bayonet lugs.

M2 Carbine - .30 Carbine

M1903A3 Springfield

M1903A3 Springfield rifles are used by US militia units and Army medics. They are not employed by the US Marines, despite it being their main rifle for most of the war. The M1903A3 has an incorrectly modeled front sight, one that does not appear on any major Springfield variant. Additionally, an M1903A3 with a scope appears as the main sniper rifle of the US faction, erroneously named "M1903A4" (it is not an M1903A4, however, as it features a front sight)

Remington M1903A3 - .30-06
Springfield M1903A4 with Weaver scope, for reference - .30-06

M1941 Johnson Rifle

The M1941 Johnson Rifle is used by some US Army Rangers.

M1941 Johnson Rifle - .30-06

Mosin-Nagant M38 Carbine

Dramatically over-scaled Mosin-Nagant M38 Carbine rifles appear as the standard rifles of Soviet forces. Their oversized appearance was likely done purposefully to make them appear as full-length M1891/30 rifles, though it is nonetheless incorrect. A variant with a PU scope appears as the Red Army's sniper rifle (Even though Mosin carbines were almost never equipped with scopes.)

Mosin-Nagant M38 Carbine - 7.62x54mmR
Mosin-Nagant M91/30, for reference - 7.62x54mmR


SKS rifles sans bayonet are employed by Soviet Red Guards. This is not entirely anachronistic, as a few SKS rifles did see front line service (for testing) with elite units of the Soviet Army in the last days of World War 2 in Europe, as well as during the Soviet invasion of Manchuria at the war's end.

Siminov SKS - 7.62x39mm

Sturmgewehr 44

Waffen-SS soldiers and other elite German military units use the Sturmgewehr 44, among other weapons.

Sturmgewehr 44 - 7.92x33mm Kurz


The SVT-40 is used by many elite units of the Soviet Army, such as the Red Guards and marine infantry.

Tokarev SVT-40 - 7.62x54mmR


Winchester Model 1912

The Winchester Model 1912 "trench gun" is the only shotgun in the game, used by the US Army. Units hit by the 1912's pellets are knocked over.

Winchester Model 1912 Trench Gun - 12 Gauge

Submachine Guns

Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II

The Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II appears, used by Japanese militia forces. While unusual, this is not incorrect, as prior to the development of the Type 100, the MP-28 was the only submachine-gun in the Japanese army, and many continued to see service during WW2 due to the small numbers of Type 100s produced. Despite being a German SMG, the MP-28 is not used by any German forces in game (the MP-28 was still used by the Waffen-SS and some Wehrmacht units during WW2.) Variants are available with 20 and 50 rounds, but only the 20 is used in normal gameplay.

Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II - 9x19mm

M3A1 Grease Gun

The M3A1 Grease Gun appears as a secondary submachine-gun used by some US forces, namely tank crews, militiamen, and engineer infantry.

M3A1 Grease Gun - .45 ACP


The MP40 is the standard submachine-gun of German forces.

MP40 - 9x19mm

MP 3008

The MP 3008 appears as the submachine-gun of German Volkssturm forces.

MP 3008 - 9x19mm

Owen SMG

The Owen Submachine Gun appears as the SMG of Commonwealth ANZAC forces.

Owen Mk I Submachine Gun - 9x19mm


The PPSh-41 is the standard submachine-gun for Soviet forces. Both 71-round drum magazine and 35-round box magazine variants appear.

PPSh-41 - 7.62x25mm Tokarev
PPSh-41 with 35-round drum magazine - 7.62x25mm Tokarev


PPS-43 submachine-guns are also used by Soviet forces.

PPS-43 - 7.62x25mm Tokarev

Reising M50

The Reising M50 is used by certain Commonwealth engineers and SMG infantrymen (though more often they use the Sten Mk.V) Rather strangely, neither the US Marines the Reising was designed for nor the rest of the US faction use it at all.

Reising M50 (full stock variant) - .45 ACP

Sten Mk V

A Sten Mk V sans vertical foregrip appears as the standard submachine-gun of the Commonwealth, though several others are available. A suppressed variant is used by SAS operatives and commandos.

The Mk V was introduced in 1944 (making it anachronistic for most of the timeline) for airborne infantry, and though it was used by ground forces to a some degree, the cheaper Sten Mk IIs and Mk IIIs were far more common and introduced much earlier. Its use by the SAS is, however, appropriate.

Sten Mk V - 9x19mm without vertical grip.

Thompson M1928

A Thompson M1928 "Tommy Gun" with a 50-round drum magazine appears used by some Commonwealth SAS soldiers. Drum mag-equipped Thompsons were in-fact quite popular with British commandos during WW2, for their considerable utility in close quarters combat.

M1928 "Tommy Gun" or "Chicago typewriter" with 50-round drum magazine - .45 ACP

Thompson M1928A1

The Thompson M1928A1 with late sights and a 20-round magazine appears as the standard submachine-gun of US forces, and one of several available to the Commonwealth (used by squad leaders and officers.) A variant with a 30-round magazine exists in the game files, but uses the exact same model as the 20-round variant.

There are a number of issues with the M1928A1's appearance. Most US Army units (and especially elite units such as the 82nd Airborne and Rangers) deployed to Europe would've been equipped with the later M1A1 Thompson standardized in 1942 (though some M1928A1s would continue to serve alongside M1A1s in the Army as late as the Vietnam War.) The same applies to the 20-round magazines, which saw far less use in Europe than their 30-round equivalents. In the Pacific, however, the M1928A1 saw more widespread use with the Marines (as correctly depicted in game) and Army soldiers.

M1928A1 Thompson - .45 ACP

Type 100 SMG

A late war model Type 100 Submachine Gun appears as the standard SMG of Japanese forces.

Late-war Type 100 Submachine-Gun - 8x22mm Nambu

Machine Guns

Besa Machine Gun

The Besa Machine Gun is mounted on several Commonwealth vehicles.

British Besa tank machine gun - 7.92×57mm Mauser

Bren Gun

Bren machine guns equip the vast majority of Commonwealth infantrymen. They are also used on certain Commonwealth vehicles, such as the Universal Carrier.

Bren Mk2 - .303 British

Browning M1919A4

Browning M1919A4s are mounted on many US (and certain Commonwealth) ground vehicles. Additionally, they are used on tripod mounts as static emplacements.

Browning M1919A4 - .30-06

Browning M1919A6

The Browning M1919A6 appears as one of two machine-guns used by US infantry forces.

Browning M1919A6 - .30-06

Browning M2HB

Browning M2HBs are the standard heavy machine guns on US vehicles, and are also used on many Commonwealth vehicles, and Soviet M3 Half-Tracks. Rather interestingly, the M2HB can be picked up and used like any typical machine gun by infantry, despite its immense weight (though it is technically possible and has been done before in reality.) They also appear as static guns and on M51 AA 'Maxson' Quadmounts.

Browning M2HB - .50 BMG
4 Browning M2HBs mounted on an M51 'Maxson' Quadmount - .50 BMG

Degtyaryov DP-27

Degtyaryov DP-27 machine-guns are the standard infantry MGs for the Soviet forces.

Degtyaryov DP-27 - 7.62x54mmR

Degtyaryov DS-39

The Degtyaryov DS-39 is used on several Soviet vehicles and appears as their standard mounted weapon (rather inaccurately, as the DShK and older Maxim M1910 were more common.)

Degtyaryov DS-39 - 7.62x54mmR

Degtyaryov DT

The Degtyaryov DT is the Soviet vehicle-mounted medium machine gun, used as a hull or coaxial mount for most tanks and armored vehicles. Soviet Red Guard infantry machine gunners also use dismounted DTs, a practice sometimes used during the war.

Degtyaryov DT, dismounted - 7.62x54mmR


The DShK heavy machine gun is used on many Soviet vehicles, and also appears on a single ground-level mount, though is oddly (and historically incorrectly) overshadowed by the Degtyaryov DS-39 machine gun.

DShKM on tripod - 12.7x108mm

Lewis Gun

Commonwealth forces employ Lewis Guns as their secondary infantry machine-guns.

Lewis Gun - .303 British

M1941 Johnson Machine Gun

M1941 Johnson Machine Guns are used by US Army Rangers and US Marines (somewhat erroneously, as the USMC only used small quantities of the M1941 MG.)

M1941 Johnson Light Machine Gun - .30-06

Maxim M1910

Low-detail Maxim M1910 machine guns are available as static mounts, used by Soviet forces. A quad-version also exists.

Maxim 1910 with 'Sokolov' wheel mount, w/o shield - 7.62x54mmR


The MG34 is the standard German vehicle-mounted machine gun - used by nearly all armed German vehicles. Static variants are also available, and an infantry variant is used by Waffen-SS soldiers (strangely modeled without any visible magazine.)

MG34 - 7.92x57mm Mauser


The MG42 is the standard German machine gun for infantry purposes. Some vehicles also employ it on rooftop mounts, and static variants are also used.

MG42 with sling and bipod collapsed - 7.92x57mm Mauser

Type 1 Heavy Machine Gun

The Type 1 Heavy Machine Gun is used on several Japanese vehicles, and also appears as a static mount.

Type 1 Heavy Machine Gun - 7.7x58mm Arisaka

Type 99 Light Machine Gun

Type 99 Light Machine Guns are the standard machine guns of Japanese infantry forces, and are also employed on a few of their vehicles.

Type 99 Light Machine Gun - 7.7x58mm Arisaka


Vickers machine guns appear as static guns, and are also a secondary armament on several Commonwealth vehicles.

Vickers with ribbed water jacket - .303 British

Vickers K

Handheld Vickers K machine guns are carried by Commonwealth SAS operatives, something practiced considerably often during the war, as the Vickers K had been phased out of aircraft use and many were available as surplus.

Vickers K - .303 British

Anti-Tank Rifles

Boys Anti-Tank Rifle

The Boys Anti-Tank Rifle appears as the standard anti-tank rifle used by Commonwealth forces.

Boys Anti-Tank Rifle 3rd Variant - .55 Boys


The PTRD-41 is one of two anti-tank rifles available to Soviet forces.

PTRD-41 Anti-tank rifle - 14.5x114mm


The more-effective PTRS-41 is the second anti-tank rifle available to the Soviets.

PTRS-41 Anti-tank rifle - 14.5x114mm


The PzB-39 appears as the standard anti-tank rifle used by German forces. It has two spare ammunition boxes attached, but these do not have an actual gameplay effect.

PzB-39 Anti-tank rifle with spare ammunition box attached to the gun

Type 97 Anti-Tank Rifle

The Type 97 AT Rifle appears in use by Japanese forces. Though firing a 20mm round, it has the exact same damage and penetration as the other AT rifles.

Anti-Tank Launchers

M1A1 "Bazooka"

The M1A1 "Bazooka" is the standard (and only) anti-tank weapon of all US forces (with the exception of Army Rangers, who also use the M18 Recoilless Rifle.) It is also used by Soviet soldiers, marines, and Red Guards. This is not inaccurate, as the Soviets did not produce any domestic anti-tank launcher designs during the war, so lend-lease Bazookas made up the majority of their launcher complement.

M1A1 Bazooka - 2.36 inch

M18 Recoilless Rifle

The M18 Recoilless Rifle is available to US Army Rangers, alongside the M1A1 Bazooka. Its use by Rangers is rather erroneous, as the M18 was only deployed to Europe during the last few months of the war, and only two battalions of Rangers fought in the Pacific War where it saw significant use (additionally, the sparsely appearing US Marines do not use it for some reason.) Nevertheless, it is not completely inaccurate as the game's timeline continues until the war's end.

M18 Recoilless Rifle - 57mm


The Panzerfaust is one of two AT launchers available to German forces. It is named the "Panzerfaust 100" in game and properly modeled after one, but incorrectly only usable out to 30 meters, the max range of the older Panzerfaust Klein series. It is, however, correctly depicted as expendable, and units will drop it after firing.

Panzerfaust - 44mm with 149mm warhead


The RPzB 54 'Panzerschreck' is the second AT launcher available to the German faction.

RPzB 54 "Panzerschreck" rocket launcher - 88mm


The PIAT is the standard AT launcher for Commonwealth forces.

Projector, Infantry, Anti Tank (PIAT) with loaded bomb - 3.25 in

Type 4 70mm AT Rocket Launcher

The Type 4 70mm AT Rocket Launcher appears as the standard AT launcher for Japanese forces. Its appearance is anachronistic, as the actual Type 4 never saw significant combat, being developed only in preparation for the defense of the Japanese mainland.
