    All,

    I am looking for the German designations for any captured weapons (Infantry type; MGs, AT Rifles, Small Mortars <60mm, FTs).

    Is there a good listing somewhere that I might be able to see?

    Thanks for listening.

    BTW, I did a searcha nd found none on this website.

    IIRC there's a listing for small arms in 'Guns Of The Reich' by 'George Markham ( John Walter ) published a few years back by A&AP.....

    I have the Italian edition of that book and while most data is in there I could find no table
    A good one may be here, this is the page for MGs but there are also ones for other weapon cathegories

    Best book I have to include all captured designations of such stuff is the old Gander & Chamberlain 'Encyclopedia of Small Arms and Special Weapons of the Third Reich'. Almost everything is in there.
