    Hi all


    Yust found some pictures of wich I thought would be worthwile to share on this forum. I found them on this site:

    The third and last picture is from the West Somali liberation front. This picture was taken between 1977 - 78.

    Like the AK-47....These weapons were readilly handed out to anyone who wanted Soviet aid. Cool to see the MP44 in colour. Goes to show that it was a great weapon if it was used well into the 80's.

    Cheers!

    I have seen pics of them in Lebanon too, but I do recall where now and I never saved the pics.

    They were, of course, used by the DDR, with my own MP44 coming from there.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Here is an early postwar DDR poster showing the MP44. Credit for the pic to my friend Polish Jacek.
