EDIT /// The weapon has to be correct to the time period.

Bergmann MP18



Cartridge –– 9x19mm Parabellum
Action –– open bolt blowback
Rate of fire –– 500 round/min
Muzzle velocity –– 380 m/s (1,247 ft/s)
Feed system 32 detachable drum magazine

Much weaker caliber than the BAR but I'd sacrifice that for more rounds. Plus it would be lighter and more maneuverable if I got to the other side and had to do some trench sweeping.

I would say the Thompson, but it is one year too early and never made it overseas for WWI.

In that case I want a radio with a flight of Phantoms on the other end loaded with napalm.

Otherwise, obviously, A TANK! (DUH!)



Specifically, this one:







The FT-17 is the first one to follow 'modern' design, but the FT-17 was a *light* tank...

I'll take history lessons.  The only reason you're charging a trench to kill your own race of people is because you are fools, just easily manipulated animals.

People who see WWI and think 'What Gun'....



I think 'Why would 'What gun' matter, if I'm just going to die in No Mans Land with it anyhow'...



Rather than 'If I had to fight in WWI (or II), I am sure as hell going to NOT be a grunt with a rifle...



Armor, FTW!



Why carry your weapon, when your weapon can CARRY YOU?

If you were a tank crewman in WWII you would be in the inferior Sherman.  If you were in the Red Army your chances of surviving would probably be equally dismal whether you were in a tank or an infantryman on foot.

Oh believe me, I have no love lost for the M-4 'Crew-B-Que'....
However, I would much rather be in one of those, than facing an enemy that puts an MG-42 in every rifle squad, with an M1 Garand, and maybe a M1919 for support-by-fire if one was detached from weapons platoon, wearing nothing but a uniform shirt & some web gear...

Just a pistol, because I want something light that isn't going to slow me down while I run like a track star. If by some miracle I make it to the other side I will be engaging multipule targets at close range.

WWI was a seriously fucked up war, modern weaponry used against classical tactics.

Just remember to pull the pins on the grenades before you chuck them over the side...

1897 Winchester with the bayonet mounted. Nothing like a 12ga with an extra 17" of blade at the end to let the other guy let you know that you want them dead.

And yes, its probably a good choice if the first users of chlorine and mustard gas tried to ban the weapon on the grounds of it being excessively savage.

MP18 or handgun.

If I had a shotgun, I'd rather sport a Model 12 Winchester than a M1897. But the older shotgun would still get the job done in a trench fight.

Slightly off topic, but what rotten luck for Colonel Thompson! Designs a trench sweeper, coins the term "sub-machine gun", but the armistice comes. So instead of the public associating his weapon with brave doughboys, they think of Chicago gangsters, and he didn't live to see it's use in WWII.
