Spagin has a wider meaning, than just the PPSh-41 submachine gun. In addition, the new revolver that i added into H&D Deluxe is NOT the .38 Enfield.

I deliberately named both those weapons in that way in H&D Deluxe.

2.) First off, Wikipedia is NOT a reliable source, as it can be edited by anybody, you and me included. It's why teachers and professors disallow their students from using it.
But, for the benefit of doubt, let's say it's true; the Wikipedia page also says, "a decision had been taken by Allied authorities to supply .30 caliber weapons from US stocks in the weapons containers dropped to Resistance groups".
If you don't trust Wikipedia, make a research yourself and provide an alternative info source about WW2 weapons.

By the way in each Wikipedia article, the article's creator should provide sources (books, Internet, etc) in form of footnotes, if there are missing sources (footnotes) the article's author should add them to the article. Missing footnotes could be a basis for questioning the whole article or its part. If there is something "wrong" with a particular Wikipedia article, there should be a "warning info" placed in that article - meaning that the article should be further updated and corrected.

I used the info from Wikipedia articles about some WW2 infantry weapons presented in H&D Deluxe - regarding their weight, calibre, magazine size, effective firing range, users. If the informations seen by you are not correct, please tell me Myron which in particular and why? Could you prove that? If not, i will still stick to the Wikipedia as the main source of informations for my H&D Deluxe modding work.

I will be more than happy to correct wrong info, since i want the H&D Deluxe weapons to be as realistic as possible (however keep in mind that this is still only a video game with all its limitations).

We need to explain this matter once and for all to avoid future misunderstandings. Since you raised publicly the problem about the Wikipedia being not a reliable source here on the H&D forum, i am forced to react accordingly, because i used info from Wikipedia articles in my modding work. I really don't want to be suspected of ignorance in the topic of WW2 weapons...

Ok, I admit, I don't know of any major inaccuracy of Wikipedia concerning WWII guns. But I do know of some inaccuracies in other things.

One random example; chemistry, Wikipedia says that Titanium is "one of the few elements that can burn without oxygen", but in actuality, it is the ONLY element that can burn without oxygen.

Where there is one important error, there has to be more. And I do know of more.

Still, granted, there are too few other sources of information on WWII weapons. :(
Therefor, I take back what I said about using Wikipedia.

Twisted answer, but an answer finally... :roll:

I added a new Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 inventory icon, in-game and aim models into H&D Deluxe. See pictures below.

The new Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 rifle model and related texture were downloaded from https://p3dm.ru/files/weapon/ website.

The new rifle has also a realistic shooting sound downloaded from Youtube and text description taken from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosin–Nagant.

I though, that this rifle could be used by some of the enemy and friendly soldiers in H&D Deluxe. In addition, the player would have a chance to obtain few pieces in some missions. However, i don't want the new rifle to be available in H&D Deluxe campaigns inventory selection screens (the scrolling list).

If you are interested Myron, please let me know, so i will continue my work to fully implement the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 rifle into H&D Deluxe (we should decide together in which particular missions the rifle would be available).

I replaced the old M1A1 Carbine inventory, in-game and aim models with new better looking ones found on https://p3dm.ru/files/weapon/ . See pictures below.

I could upload the needed files, so you could see and use this new M1A1 Carbine model in H&D Deluxe. Please let me know Myron, if you are interested.
