    Those are also machine guns, not sub-machine guns.

    And other than select groups in third world countries, nobody has used them in over 60 years.

    All those you listed used rifle cartridges. A sub-machine gun uses a pistol cartridge.

    The former is also generally gas operated, the latter uses blowback most of the time for it's operation.

    You are talking about over 70 years ago.

    How about at least sticking to the last half of the last century?

    The Russians did the same thing to the Georgians they did to the Germans. Smother you with arty. When they sicken of it, they’ll mass their tanks with infantry right behind them.

    Correction...you are still getting your asses kicked in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    If you believe that man is good, there is no need for government. If you believe that man is bad, you dare not create one.
