Free Syrian Army captures 5000 STG44s
[link to www.armoryblog.com]

If you’re a WWII history buff like I am this will absolutely blow your mind. The video below shows members of the Free Syrian Army who are fighting against the forces of Syrian “President” Bashar al-Assad that have stumbled upon a contrainer full of rifles. The rebel member who posted the video mistakenly claimed that they had found 5,000 AK-47s. Nope, turns out they stumbed upon 5,000 German WWII STG-44 rifles.

Germany did occupy north Africa.

I assume many ammo and weapons cashes the Americans/Brits forgot were confiscated by local militias long ago.

Reminds me of those Spitfire fighters found buried in the desert recently!

The concept of finding unused WW2 shit is awesome, imagine finding a never used Tiger Tank buried under your yard or something!

B17 in the loftspace, German U boat in the neighbors hottub, Halftrack on the compost heap, Zeppelin in the garage!

Dude what in the hell are you talking about, they look like originals, probably buried in 1944 by the nazis.

A similar thing happened recently but on the other side of the world with two dozen buried WW2 fighter aircraft.

After World War II, the Soviet Union and other Eastern Bloc states supplied client regimes and guerrilla movements with captured German arms such as the StG 44 along with newly manufactured or repackaged 7.92x33mm ammunition. French forces discovered many in Algeria and determined the origin to be from Czechoslovakia. Examples also found their way into the hands of the Vietcong during the Vietnam War, and the PLO.[28] It is still used in very limited numbers by militia forces in the Middle East[29] as well as some countries in the Horn of Africa. StG 44s have been confiscated from militia groups by U.S. forces in Iraq.

Lol, they must have found ammo, which is weird because i thought nobody made those obscure WW2 calibers in large amounts these days. Probably a few companies but i doubt in large amounts.

We are not talking surplus 7.62x54r or something, weird ass 7.92x33.

I just loled at one of the comments on this link though..

Lot of old german weapons in eastern europe?

Guys might be onto something then, maybe these were external and brought in over the border.

Could probably tell from serial numbers, if they have them.

LOL, Dude its possible that these have been buried in the ground for 60 years. These guns are nazi guns from WW2.

It is even possible that they are for example czech analogues that were produced by a puppet state of nazi germany in ww2 and have been stored or been on the black market since then and shipped into syria over the border but i think its more likely they were buried.

The rich abuse and rape the system while the poor build it. And those which do not understand the system will blindly support it.

I will ALWAYS stick up, fight, and die for the poor, and for those who have nothing if I have to. Because ALL PEOPLE BLEED RED.

The Soviets also made it a habit of shipping seized German weapons to conflict hotspots in Africa and the Middle East.

Plausible deniability and all.

 Quoting: CROW


The point I was trying to make is that the F(CIA)SA

1) Seems more focused on creating/maintaing the media-psyop that it is a "liberating force" while they've been documented constantly as slaughtering their own people

2) It's very LIKELY that they discovered them and were so focused on the media-psyop side of things... that they decided to call them AKs+blame Assad before anything else.

The Interwebz quickly realized the psy-op fail... hence the call out that the guns

1) aren't Assad's
(2) aren't AK47s
(3) are German WWII STG-44(s).

The STG44 looks like it would get very hot if it was fired on full auto.

Where does a man hold it? by the clip?

I'll take a Russian made AK, not those cheap eastern euro/Chinese one's.
