Sorry, this is super long.. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
My boyfriend has just joined the USMC, shipping out this month for MCRD San Diego. This is not a high school relationship - I'm 25, he's 28, and we've been living together for nearly three years. I knew he was going to join the Marines before we were even dating, so this has come as no surprise. Somehow, though, I did not mentally prepare myself enough for these kinds of decisions.. The first thing he did after telling me he had joined was ask me to move down to San Diego with him, and I'm very torn.
With all that in mind, here's my dilemma: I obviously want to be with him wherever he goes, but that is out of the question if he gets his wish to be overseas for the majority of the next four years, so does it make sense for me to move to the San Diego area with him?
I just signed a year-long lease on a new apartment (literally two days before my boyfriend swore in, so annoying!) so I have a year to decide, but I'm going to need that time to wrap my head around things and start making plans either way. I'm not afraid of moving to a new area, or living there alone, or any of that. It's actually something I've wanted to do since middle school, so the opportunity is a welcome one! But Southern California would not have been my first choice.. It would be closer to my last choice, really. Is it worth it to move there, just for the chance to maybe see my boyfriend on weekends if he isn't sent overseas right away, and to be here when he gets to come home? Any and all input is welcome! Unless you're a jerk, then go away, nobody likes you. (:
P.S. if you stuck it through to the end of my 10 million word essay, you're a hero and I love you. Sorry I tend to ramble :P

2020.08.16 16:37 cassie_to_heart 21 [F4M] Australia - Let me prove I'm your unconventional geeky gal [Friendship] [Relationship]

In my search for prospective male connections, I've decided to spruce things up a bit (as well as marginally improve the quality of this sub) in terms of finding guys I could be receptive to in terms of my nerdiness. Maybe a fellow nerd? Or someone more different whom I wouldn't expect to get along with?
About me:
21, Mtf (untransitioned atm but looking towards transitioning in the future), from Australia. I'm doing a B.S.N - Graduate Entry degree, a fast-tracked degree after I did my prior degree in a B.S. Science; double majoring in Biology and Human Biomolecular Sciences (Anatomy & Physio).
Studying to become a military flight nurse but I profess I'm not sure if it's worth being the ambition... (military isn't kind to flexibility in schedules after all)... however, I'd want to gain some exposure or work in collaboration with the military. If the military route doesn't pan out, alternative is to go towards the path of being a DoD civilian nurse (of some kind) at an Army hospital or Naval medical center. Unfortunately, my interests/hobbies make it hard for me to connect with anyone and quarantine has pretty much defined my life. Some of them include: listening to police scanners, watching military MRE reviews and aviation/commercial flight trip reports.
I also gotten back into reading, being quite a bookworm before.. Right now, I'm reading "Towards a New Maritime Strategy: American Naval Thinking in the Post Cold-War Era". On the watch-list right now is "On Call in Hell - A Doctor's Iraq War Story" by CDR Jadick once I finish (based on Fallujah). However, I've too read other books including: Shortest Way Home , Winter of the World/Edge of Eternity book series, The Strain, Wayward Pines book series, World War Z.
If you're big on music... I got some songs/soundtracks to offer you! My favourite ones are from Bear McCreary - Two Funerals/Pegasus/Prelude to WaKat's Sacrifice/Admiral and Commander and Something Dark is Coming. However, Pegasus and Admiral and Commander takes the cake for summing up my rare positive experiences in life where uncertainty can bring about hope.
I've been getting compliments that I'm a kind, intelligent and gentle woman, even on a basis of friendship alone.
What is something that makes you think you can impress guys in terms of geekiness?
What I desire:
I crave and desire connections with guys who believe in the mantra of taking care of each other in good company and are here for long-term. And no, this has no sexual connotations of it.
Preferably, I'd like to establish a friendship first. Whilst I am open at the prospect of it becoming something more, the trust for me to be very comfortable around a guy is earned.
My flaw is that I tend to do things and sort my problems alone, because I usually have no one to turn to, at least save for several online male friends I talk to regularly, though they live on the other side of the world. One important tidbit, they're all former or current military and to a smaller extent, worked in law enforcement. For one, I'd like to be specific and from personal experiences, the more specific you are, it shows one's willingness to be determined in what you're looking for.
I am very much a person that I feel comfortable in making connections (platonic or romantic) to men in these backgrounds, and if you're wondering.... yes I am open to dating a man coming from a LE (law enforcement)/military background... you'd be surprised to know some men are actually very understanding and considerate opposite to my background and situation in life. It may even surprise you when I say I am a liberal!!!
I've learned through time, that the past friendships I've had in the civilian world could not compare in terms of willingness and desire to actively nurture connections, often forgotten.
Moreover, there is enough unspoken dysfunction to know we aren't always obligated to 'fake it till you make it' when we have those moments in life and we can be real with each other in terms of vulnerabilities.
Anyways, if you think you fit the bill, looking forward to hearing from you (and kudos if you've managed to reach this far)

2020.07.25 20:06 blehblehblehgh My ex (21/M) and I (20/F) recently went on a “break”

So my boyfriend decided that we need to take a break a couple weeks ago. We were together and attended the same college for the past year and a half. I still have two more years of undergrad and he graduated in May right before he left to go off into the USMC. He plans to be in the marines for about 3 years then we had planned to go move in together afterwards while we both attend med school (but I would be a few years ahead of him in med school because I plan to go to med school right after I finish with my bachelors.)
So, we were having a rough patch mostly due to the stress both of us were under I believe. We’re both EMTs and were deployed out to NYC in the end of April to help out with this pandemic which is where the fighting really started. We have amazing chemistry though and usually get along really well when we’re not working 24 hour shifts and trying to finish final exams at the same time. Plus he was really really stressed about his impending leave for the military (even though he didn’t want to say it.) So this fighting really made it apparent that we handle stress in different ways. I vent (somewhat excessively when I’m under excessive stress) to get through my emotions. He isolates himself. So when we were both going through it, I was upset I didn’t have him to support me and he was upset because I was stressing him out more with my venting.
So we’re using this “break” to work on ourselves and hopefully get back together in the future. For all intents and purposes though, we are broken up right now completely. But I’m seeing a mental health professional and working on finding better coping mechanisms so that I don’t lean on other people so much to help me get through “intensely emotional” situations as my therapist calls it. And he’s doing the same. We still interact almost everyday through texts, snapchats, and instagram dms. It is less frequent than when we’re dating though. He still saves the selfies I send him and tells me I’m “absolutely beautiful.”
So yeah. I’m just feeling worried because breaks are usually just a stepping stone to breaking up in my experience and I don’t want to waste my time. But I truly love him with all my heart and I want to make this work. At this point he says he wants the future with me that we planned together but he’s not sure if we can get their because the way we deal with stress could make us incompatible (even though we’re pretty great with everything else.) I’m just heart broken and not ready to give up on this relationship yet. Thoughts?
((sorry if this is scattered lol I’m just trying to get everything out))

2020.06.14 02:06 MrBuck3t Selfish/Unsympathetic Girlfriend

Selfish/Unsympathetic Girlfriend
I (22m) have been dating my girlfriend (21f) (now ex) for almost 2 years. Throughout these two years I’ve noticed a number of issues that have come up, with the last being the final straw. I’m not sure if I’m being to harsh or unsympathetic, but I can’t escape the feelings I have towards her and these issues. I just want to see what everyone thinks about if my breakup was justified or not. And also to warn people of potential women who use their significant other. This will be long and jumbled, I apologize for I’m currently in the hospital and on some pain meds.
First off I can’t escape the fact that I think she’s always craving the spotlight. Whenever she tells me about something good or even mediocre she did at work or school I would praise her maybe even overly praise her. Whereas when I accomplish something like getting a new job, graduating from USMC OCS, or getting my engineering degree, all I ever get from her is a “that’s good” or “congratulations.” Then she turns the spotlight back on her about how hard it’s been for her while I’ve been gone for military selection, or how the dishwasher doesn’t work since I don’t wash the plates right, etc. It’s almost as if she’s mad I’ve done these things because it makes her uncomfortable. It’s not that I need the praise but it’s nice every now and then to know that your significant other is proud of you or even acknowledges your accomplishments.
The next issue is the fact that she is lazy and refuses to acknowledge it. Whenever I point out how much more work I do than her, she gets furious and says it’s not true, but I don’t see how she can even think I do less work. I go to college, work 36 hours a week as an EMT, and am involved in my military program. Whereas when she moved in with me (late February), she quit her community college, transferred jobs then decided to leave since her hours weren’t good enough due to COVID. I understand getting 4 hours a week is frustrating, but it’s better than nothing. Since then she’s done nothing. I work my weekends and go to school all day taking 18 units, while she sits there all day and does very little. I approached her about her doing some more of the chores or cooking more since I’m providing all the money and going to school, but she thinks it’s unfair to her since it’s not all her laundry and that she eats less than me. The part that irritates me the most is that both my company and other ambulance companies are hiring and she has taken her EMT class a year ago to get her certification and is qualified to take the final exam, but she refuses to take it. She keeps saying I’m annoying her about it every time I bring it up and it’s been months. Even when I bring up signed up for the COVID unemployment benefits she gets anger when I suggest it. She says she tried and it was too confusing and she needs me to do it for her. (Which Is where I draw the line). She just sits there.
The last, but probably the thing that sent me over the edge is the fact that recently I got in a paragliding accident and ended up falling about 25-30 ft onto the ground and broke my back. Had the ambulance and eventually a helicopter bring me to the hospital. I have the nurses inform everyone close including my gf and family of the situation. After they stabilize me I am able to use my phone for a bit and call her to let her know I’m okay. But when I call she doesn’t seem the least bit concerned about me. I say I may not be able to walk again or pee on my own she she says “damn” or “I’m sorry” or “you’ll be ok” in a very non interested tone whereas I’m on the verge of tears. Mind you I’m paralyzed from the waist down at the time. Over the course of the next few days I get surgery and start to move and feel my legs and feet a bit. Eventually enough to start walking. This process goes on for a few days and then I start wondering why she doesn’t seem to care about me in this highly traumatic situation. I look at my past calls and realize all the calls she’s involved in were started by me. She called me once over the period of a week. When I would text her exciting news like “I can walk with a walker now” or “I won’t be peeing out of a tube for the rest of my life” she responds “that’s good.” Then she starts to bring up how she was looking through my old phone last used probably 4 years ago (before we started dating) and that she found nudes of my ex on there. She begins to go off saying I don’t know if I can trust you and how could you knowingly do this to me, etc. All while I’m in the hospital trying to walk again and get over the paralysis. This just seems so wrong to me to bring it up in a time like this. To concern me about our relationship when I’m in the hospital fighting an injury like this. I can’t have this on my mind every time I’m using all my focus to try to walk. My physical therapist sat down with me and said this is affecting my recovery. So that night I let her go.
I really focused a lot on the negatives here. We do get along, we have very similar interests and she’s really pretty (probably out of my league). She’s such a perfect match when things are going well, but I just feel like I cannot ignore these issues, especially the last one. It’s almost like I can’t respect her since she doesn’t hold herself to any of the standards to which I hold myself. I began to resent her. I’m curious to think if any of you think this relationship was salvageable or if there was anything I could’ve done better. I really am bummed because I love this woman, but I just don’t know if I can get past some of these things. I genuinely feel used, especially on the financial side of things. Furthermore, how did I let this go on so long to where she thought these things were acceptable? What can I do in future relationships to ensure that they cannot get away with using me for a place to stay and money? Thanks
TLDR: Girlfriend and I are really great match in terms of hobbies, music, style, life plans. But throughout the relationship there’s been some serious issues of selfishness and lack of sympathy when it comes to me being temporarily paralyzed in the hospital, and her lack of getting a job. Was the relationship salvageable? How can I prevent this from happening again?

2020.04.06 19:22 DxDeadlockedxS Cant Let Go

My cousin (Ill use the name Joe in place of his real name) is having a baby within the next couple days with his girlfriend. I hate Joe because of thing's he's done to me in the past that I simply can't let go of. He probably doesn't even know that I'm mad over these things which is why I'm having so much trouble letting go. Nobody in my family knows that I have a chip on my shoulder besides my mom. My mom and I just got into a huge argument because I refuse to contact him and say congratulations on being a father. She hates that I hate Joe and it really upsets her that I won't let go of the past.
I used to idolize my cousin when I was a kid. I'm not sure why I just looked up to him because I always thought he was really cool. I even picked up the trombone when I picked an instrument in school because he played the trombone.
Over the years he became an asshole. Got into bad shit. Even got kicked out of his house for a bit. I forgot what the conversation was about, but at some point we got into an argument on facebook messenger years ago. I was really young like 14 or 15. In this argument he told me I'd never get laid and that I would be like the 40 year old virgin and that if he wanted to he could rip me in half because of how strong he was. He was a real piece of shit. The 40 year old virgin thing really messed with my head. When I started seeing girls I was so focused on proving him wrong that I ruined relationships because I only cared about the sex part and not about the actual relationship because of what he said to me. When I lost my virginity I just thought "fuck you Joe". I proved him wrong.
Fast forward a few years and he joined the USMC. He changed a little bit, but deep down he was still a dick I could tell. A few years ago he visited our house from Florida. I hadn't seen him in years. I was dating my ex at the time and I felt hesitant about being friendly with him. But my ex persuaded me to put my ego aside and to give him another chance, so I did. We actually had a really fun time while he was there. He was with his current gf.
After he left I was really happy that I finally let go of the past. Like a heavy weight off my shoulders. A week later I'm laying in bed with my ex and she tells me I have to tell you something, but I really don't want you to be upset. I was like okay.. She told me that while Joe was there he privately asked my ex if she could get him any weed and asked her not to tell me. I wouldn't have even given a shit about the weed. But the fact that he asked my girlfriend to lie and keep secrets from me? That just showed me that he didn't change and that I was right about him all along.
To this day I still feel a lot of anger and hate towards him and I refuse to text him to congratulate him about his baby. My mom is really upset that I can't let this go and she's getting mad at me for it. I'm not sure how to move forward. I don't think I can let it go without him knowing about what he did to me. Right now would be terrible timing to talk to him about it because he's having a baby and that's just bad timing. Telling him how I feel also runs the risk of ruining my relationship with my Aunt and Uncle (who im very close with) because he may tell them. So, I guess I'm asking for advice on how to move forward.
TLDR: My cousin was an ass when I was younger. Really messed with my head. I forgave him, but he was a dick again. My mom wants me to forgive him, but I dont want to.

2020.04.06 19:20 DxDeadlockedxS Cant Let Go

My cousin (Ill use the name Joe in place of his real name) is having a baby within the next couple days with his girlfriend. I hate Joe because of thing's he's done to me in the past that I simply can't let go of. He probably doesn't even know that I'm mad over these things which is why I'm having so much trouble letting go. Nobody in my family knows that I have a chip on my shoulder besides my mom. My mom and I just got into a huge argument because I refuse to contact him and say congratulations on being a father. She hates that I hate Joe and it really upsets her that I won't let go of the past.
I used to idolize my cousin when I was a kid. I'm not sure why I just looked up to him because I always thought he was really cool. I even picked up the trombone when I picked an instrument in school because he played the trombone.
Over the years he became an asshole. Got into bad shit. Even got kicked out of his house for a bit. I forgot what the conversation was about, but at some point we got into an argument on facebook messenger years ago. I was really young like 14 or 15. In this argument he told me I'd never get laid and that I would be like the 40 year old virgin and that if he wanted to he could rip me in half because of how strong he was. He was a real piece of shit. The 40 year old virgin thing really messed with my head. When I started seeing girls I was so focused on proving him wrong that I ruined relationships because I only cared about the sex part and not about the actual relationship because of what he said to me. When I lost my virginity I just thought "fuck you Joe". I proved him wrong.
Fast forward a few years and he joined the USMC. He changed a little bit, but deep down he was still a dick I could tell. A few years ago he visited our house from Florida. I hadn't seen him in years. I was dating my ex at the time and I felt hesitant about being friendly with him. But my ex persuaded me to put my ego aside and to give him another chance, so I did. We actually had a really fun time while he was there. He was with his current gf.
After he left I was really happy that I finally let go of the past. Like a heavy weight off my shoulders. A week later I'm laying in bed with my ex and she tells me I have to tell you something, but I really don't want you to be upset. I was like okay.. She told me that while Joe was there he privately asked my ex if she could get him any weed and asked her not to tell me. I wouldn't have even given a shit about the weed. But the fact that he asked my girlfriend to lie and keep secrets from me? That just showed me that he didn't change and that I was right about him all along.

2020.03.31 12:29 4672656542656572 My love story

So I just happened to see this subreddit and when I peeked in I saw a ton of pessimism about love and relationships, I hope my story gives you some hope that love is not dead and that it is worth pursuing.
When I was 17 I joined the USMC. I was dating my high school sweetheart and as soon as I turned 18 we decided to get married because I was going to likely get shipped overseas. I got her a nice Apartment in North Carolina, got all sorts of cool stuff, a new car. Everything she needed to be happy. How did she repay my kindness? She overdrafted my bank account by $500, took the car and ran off with a coke dealer never to be seen again.
After many years I resolved that issue with my ex wife and got it annulled. I waited a very long time to get into another serious relationship. It was only until after I finished my military service around the age of 21 that I met a really nice young Chinese girl when I was looking into my local university. I literally bumped into her by accident and knocked her coffee out of her hand. I offered to buy her a new one and we ended up chatting and spending the day together. That woman ended up spending the next 10 years of my life together. We got married after dating for four years and everything seemed to be great right?
I ended up getting very ill with pancreatitis and several other various GI issues late into that 10 year period. I was in and out of the hospital for quite a bit of time and also had to have my gallbladder removed. That is when she met one of the doctors in the hospital and decided to have an affair with him. Needless to say that ended our marriage pretty damn quickly once I discovered it.
Now, with all my hope and dreams crushed I decided to start traveling the world. I had the mentality that many here share. I had given up on love and decided to focus on myself only. I got into great shape (thanks to all the bodyweight fitness subreddits) and pushed most potential love partners aside because I wasn't interested in a casual relationship or meaningless sexual ones as well. I just wanted to eat some delicious foods and see new things I have never experienced before.
That is when I ended up in Taiwan. Amazingly little place, I highly recommend you go and visit it someday when this pandemic is over. While I was there I wandered into a random Family Mart looking to buy a coffee and having the struggle of a lifetime to correctly order what I wanted. That is when a nice older woman stepped up and asked me what I wanted. She was shy, quiet and honestly she looked a little depressed. I told her what I wanted to order and she told the clerk for me.
She tried to quickly leave after that brief exchange but I asked her for her Line ID and she gave it to me. She said she would be happy to help educate me in Mandarin if I wanted to learn and she left it at that. We started talking daily and even though at that time we didn't meet up again in Taiwan we slowly started becoming infatuated with each other.
She has had similar problems with relationships in the past. She was often hurt by her previous lovers and had also given up on love. Being a 36 year old woman in Taiwan with average looks doesn't get you a lot of opportunity for dates and she had accepted the fact that she was going to be alone forever at this point.
This woman is now my new wife and we have never been happier. So far we have been together for almost 2 years. We have never had a fight, we have set clear rules for disagreements and how to handle problems in our relationships and I know she truly loves me. I wake up every morning to see her eyes light up so bright at just the sight of me. It has never dulled, not a single day. She says she is truly lucky to find me, but I feel I am the one who is lucky to meet her.
In any case, my advice to you is that don't give up on love. Focus on yourself and make yourself the best person you can be. Take all your bad experiences and learn from them. Don't hold out for love, just let it happen naturally. Even if that love turns sour someday there is always someone out there that is a good fit. I don't subscribe to the idea that there is a "one true love". We are all just floating around waiting to bump into someone who matches us. Until then, do the best you can for yourself until that moment happens.

2020.01.14 21:36 sibre2001 Marriage is beneficial, and right now is the best time in generations to get married.

If you watch this sub you'll see many posts a day pointing out that the marriage rate is falling, and OP finding some way for them to blame it on the women who rejected them on dating apps.
What they leave out is a few other statistics. For decades we as a nation worried about young people getting into marriage, and it was a mark of the health of a nation if there was less teen pregnancies and less very young adult marriages. We have succeeded on those fronts, and now people are trying to twist that progress as a crime.
Yes, the marriage rate has fallen. While of course, pretending the rate is falling for any single issue is ridiculous. A couple statistics that get left out of the equation obviously affect it. First, people are waiting much longer to get married. Here is the historical ages of people at first marriage.

Man Woman
2019 29.8 28
2010 28.2 26.1
2000 26.8 25.1
1990 26.1 23.9
1980 24.7 22
1970 23.2 20.8
1960 22.8 20.3
1950 22.8 20.3

Notice any trends? It's not particularly surprising that people who get married as more established adults would be less likely to get divorced.
But wait? Are they less likely to divorce? Reddit is full of people who have decried marriage as this horrible thing that just ruins men.
Answer to the Daily Double: Fucking god yes. One stat that made divorces look a lot more common, was people who habitually married and divorced would throw the curve. If ten couples got married, nine stayed together for life, and one couple got married and divorced repeatedly, it'd make the statistics look like 50% divorce rate even if 90% of couples never got divorced.
Another thing that threw off the curve was baby boomers. They get divorced at a historically high rate. More than their parents and their kids by a wide margin. The divorce rate right now is at its lowest rate in 40 years. If you get married now you are more likely to stay married for life than your parents and grandparents.
But is marriage worth it in the long run, especially for men? Marriage has a transformative effect on men’s finances. After marrying, men typically work harder, smarter, and more successfully. They are less likely to be fired. And they make about $16,000 more than their single peers with otherwise similar backgrounds. In general, marriage seems to increase the earning power of men on the order of 10 to 24 percent. (Source).
Beyond finances, research suggests that men who get and stay married live almost ten years longer than their unmarried peers. And a recent Harvard study found that even among men diagnosed with cancer, the married ones live longer.
Now don't get me wrong guys. I am not advocating to rush out and get married ASAP. That's the last thing I want for you. But being smart, finding the right person, spending the time and effort to ensure you are making an intelligent decision, and approaching it sensibly will lead you right.
Please guys, stop listening to lonely men who hate their lives and want you to hate your life too. Misery loves company and they want you to stay. Use your head. Be very thoughtful and deliberate about your decisions, and remember that any valuable relationship takes work.
As my statistical (anecdotal) study of 1: My wife and I got married as broke Marines with deployment rotations to Iraq. We left the USMC as broke as fuck veterans with a baby in tow. I worked my ass off while she used her GI Bill to go to school. Then she worked as I started our small business and got it off the ground using her much better income as a nurse. We're making over $250k/yr now, have two great kids, and a great marriage. Both her career and our business would still be on the backburner if we didn't have someone else to rely on at important times.
And I want that for you guys. A happy relationship. An ally to fall back on when you need it. And kids that our generation is doing a much better job of raising than the ones before us.

2019.11.20 23:01 MasterPOG My Biological father (40?) has reached out to me (20M)

I'm 20, in the USMC and halfway through my enlistment, currently overseas. About a week ago I got a request on Instagram and quickly realized it was my father. My parents were dating and broke up after and violent argument where my mother attacked my father with a knife after he hit her. I'm not going to go into specific details about every section of my life but in a nutshell, he has been in my life sporadically for very short periods and when it inconvenienced him he left or disappeared.
When he added me at first I didn't react to it, figuring to myself that I've made it this long without talking to him. If he wants to talk he will message me first. So fast forward and he has asked me if I want to come to visit him and his family whenever I have leave. I haven't told my mother or anyone else in my family, because I feel like it would only lead to a terrible interaction between both parties. I've grown up without him or his input and was raised by a single mother so I feel like I'd be fine living the rest of my life without him. At the same time, I don't want to feel like the bad guy for just ignoring him.

TLDR: My dad hit me up out of the blue after 5 years, should I talk to him

2019.10.31 03:36 AnInfiniteAmount Historical Accuracy of Small Arms in BFV, updated 10/31/19.

Hi, guys!
If you have been around here on the BFV subreddit, you might recognize me from this post, or if you are/were on the BF1 subreddit, you might recognize me from this post. And well, another major DLC/Expansion is dropping shortly so I figure, I'd update my Historicity of Small Arms List for the new year of BFV!
Each of the primary and secondary guns announced is rated on a 5 point scale, A, B, C, D, and F, on how appropriate their appearance is in a WW2 game. Again, my sources are CNRsenal, Forgotten Weapons, wikipedia and a few other sites, so the list might not be 100% accurate (though keep in mind that I've found wikipedia less accurate more often than not). If you notice any inaccuracies, please tell me. Help me make a more accurate list!
Key: A, B, C, D, F
A. Accurate in depiction and appropriately historical B. Accurate in depiction, questionably historical use (e.g. military adoption, but didn't see combat) C. Accurate in depiction, but unconfirmed use (e.g. commercial, unofficial usage or adopted by a non-belligerent) D. Ahistorical, but close enough (e.g. gun was developed but never adopted) F. Ahistorical, not even close. 
Also, if a historical gun did not fight the entire war, there is a statement about the weapons first (or last) use during the war.
And finally, I know that many of the modifications and customizations are ahistorical, but I'm not going to review them because that's so real deep in the weeds research that I'm not equipped for, and DICE probably made those choices to benefit gameplay rather than lack of historical diligence, for example, the MG42 in game fires nearly 25%-50% slower than in real life, even with the Lightened Bolt modification. That would be insane for gameplay purposes, so that's why these things have been changed, and as such, I will not be reviewing that kind of stuff.
(Pistols and Pistol Carbines in the comments)

The List of Guns

Semi-auto/Assault Rifles
Gewehr 43 - A
This German semi-automatic rifle was developed from captured Russian designs after the Germans couldn't make the Gewehr 41W or 41M work. The G43 would start to see action mid-1943, think Italian mainland battles, the Battle of Kursk and Soviet counter offensives.
Gewehr 1-5 - B
This weapon is based on the Gustloff VolkssturmGewehr or Gustloff VG, but it did not actually receive an official military designation as it was developed for the Volksturm, a national militia like the British Home Guard, and not the Wehrmacht. BFV incorrectly refers to this as a Gewehr 1-5, however "VG 1-5" referred to four similar prototype rifles known as VG-1 through VG-5 (no VG-4). This gun in not based off of these weapons as they were all bolt-action and are unrelated to the Gustloff VG. Post-war testing found these guns to be low quality and inaccurate beyond 100m or so. It would not be built and deployed until 1945, but only in limited numbers, so not very widespread usage.
Sturmgewehr 1-5 - D
Like the Gewehr 1-5, this weapon is also based off of the Gustloff VolkssturmGewehr. Again, the messed-up naming convention, but taken to another level: Volkssturmgewehr was a contraction of Volkssturm (People's militia) and gewehr (rifle), hence the VG designation, not volks (People's) and sturmgewehr (assault rifle). You can tell this because the other four Volksturmgewehr rifles were bolt actions. Finally, this weapon is basically fictional: the Volkssturmgewehr probably didn't have a Selective Fire variant. None have ever been found and there is no source that says there was outside of the wikipedia article. The foregrip handguard is accurate to variants of the Gustloff VG, though.
Selbstlader 1916 - F
This German WW1-era self-loading rifle was used as an air rifle (used by pilots and ballonists to shoot at other pilots if their machine guns failed) during the Great War but ultimately couldn't cut it as an infantry weapon. Only about 1000 were produced by Mauser before shelving the project due to a number of factors, including that the Selbstlader 1916 was just too expensive and too finicky for the cost. Production of the Selbstlader 1916 would never resume and any use in the Second World War is dubious at best.
M1A1 Carbine - A
A variant of the American M1 Carbine, the M1A1 replaced the M1's fullstock with a folding stock. Originally intended for use with Paratroopers, the M1A1 found its way into the hands of US Marines and British Commandos and SOE. The first time the M1A1 Carbine would be seen at the front would be the Operation Torch landings in 1942.
Turner SMLE - D
A Canadian semi-automatic conversion of the venerable WW1-era SMLE. Like just about everything about the SMLE, the Turner conversion was too complicated and expensive for mass conversion of SMLEs, something shared with the Howell rifle in BF1.
STG 44 - A
A German Assault rifle, the Sturmgewehr 44 is one of the first Assault rifles ever made. Like in WW1 and submachine guns, there is significant debate over what exactly was the first Assault rifle, although the STG 44 was the first to be classified as one. The STG 44 would see service before 1944 surprisingly, starting during the Siege of Leningrad in 1943, and would stay in service through the 50s.
M1907 SF - D
This weapon is based off the Winchester 1907 Self Loader but modified for automatic fire. Probably by the French. There are some things wrong with this. Firstly, the weapon model is based off an early pre-WW1 version of the Winchester 1907 and does not include any improvements from the following thirty years. Secondly, the fully automatic fire ability was probably not something that actually happened. A lot of sources say that this modification existed, but it probably didn’t as (1) it would've had to be modified at an arsenal or at the factory (it required major modifications to the trigger assembly) so there should be more documentation for it, and (2) the original source was probably the result of a translation error. Again, by the French. Either way, any WW1 issue French M1907s would last into the 1930s in colonial use, and there is no recorded use of the M1907 during the Second Great War.
Ribeyrolles 1918 - F
A French prototype "Carabine Mitrailleuse" or automatic carbine developed during the Great War. The French didn't really understand what they had in the Ribeyrolles 1918, and despite seeing a redesign in the 1920s, the French lost interest as they began to focus on their new post-WW1 Semi Auto Rifle Program, which will be a recurring theme for a lot of these French guns. The Ribeyrolles almost certainly did not see action in WW2, as it's 8x35 or 8x32SR round, basically .351 SL converted to use a Lebel 8mm bullet, (sources differ on the actual dimensions) had not been produced since the mid-WW1 trials of the weapons, with some sources saying that only 3000 rounds of the ammo were ever made.
Ag m/42 - A+
This Swedish semi-auto rifle was typical of European battle rifles of the forties. The Ag m/42 equipped parts of the Swedish Army and supplemented the bolt-action m/96, but also saw service with the Norwegian "Police Troops" (basically, remnants of the Norwegian Army in Sweden during the Occupation) though, the guns could have seen very limited action in 1945 during the Liberation of Finmark.
MAS 44 - D
A French Semi-Auto Rifle, the MAS 44 was the penultimate result of a French Semi-Auto Rifle program that dated back to 1909. By the 1939, the French army was still primarily armed with Berthier and Lebel rifles, designs that dated back to the 1880s. Unfortunately for France, the Occupation stalled the production and adoption of the MAS 38/39 (the rifle, not the SMG) and it wouldn't be until after the war ended that the redesigned MAS 44 would be produced. Kind of sad really, the one country that had been on the standard Semi-Auto rifle train from the start of the century would be the last major military to do so, and only after the Assault Rifle started getting popular.
Karabin 1983M - B
The Kbsp wz. 1938M is a Polish semi-automatic rifle, similar to the Czech ZH-29. A small trials batch of these guns were made for the Polish military in 1938, but few were delivered before the war started. There is only one known military use of this weapon: during the Invasion of Poland, the 1938M's inventor, Józef Maroszek, used his rifle to down a German warplane, however, the same source reports that the 1938M may have been issued to German occupation forces as a substitute for more standard weapons as the 1938M could chamber Germany's 8mm Mauser round. Unlike other European battle rifles, the 1938M lacks a detachable magazine, only allowing for stripper clip loading.
Breda M1935 PG - C
An Italian-made Selective fire Rifle, the Breda PG was the first Military rifle to have an automatic burst-fire mode. The 4rd burst mode, however, was exclusive to the models ordered by the Costa Rican military and would not have seen service during WW2.
M1 Garand - A
An American Battle Rifle and the "greatest battle implement ever devised." The fast firing, fast reloading M1 would be adopted by the US Army in 1936, and by the US Marines in 1941. Despite the earlier adoption by the Army and the general shortage of Garands for the Marines, it would be the US Marines who would first use the Rifle in combat, during the Battle of Midway in 1942, but through most of the war the US Marines would struggle to get enough Garands to fully displace the older M1903 Springfields. The British would reject the M1 Garand in favor of more of those SMLEs (because the M1 Garand was too effective for the British to take seriously), but the Garand would serve in many other militaries throughout the world post-war.
Submachine Guns
STEN - A
The quintessential British submachine gun, introduced in 1941, the STEN was probably the most basic military adopted weapon ever made, and would serve in the British military for far longer than the designers anticipated, which was, I think about 18 months.
Suomi KP/31 - A
A Finnish submachine gun, although used by the Germans. It predated the war and saw service through it and beyond. This weapon would be captured by the Soviets during the Winter War and be reverse engineered into the PPSH-41, an absolute monster of an SMG if it ever makes it into the game.
EMP- A
The Machine Pistol Erma, sometimes the EMP-35, a German-made submachine gun, developed from the MP 18 of the Great War. Never adopted by Germany or any of the other belligerents, this gun sort of had a roundabout way of entering the war. Originally built for Spain (and others), the EMP was used by Spanish Republicans before the end of the Spanish Civil War, and at the end of the war they fled to France where large numbers of these weapons were interned. These captured guns were later repurposed German regiments who then retreated to Germany and were used during later last-stand battles. The EMP predates the war, but (probably) didn’t see fighting until 1944 or 45. Supposedly interned guns were also issued to French Military Police, but the only source I found for that was an uncited wikipedia article.
MP 28 - A
The German MP28 was another adaption of the WW1-era MP 18. Like the EMP, it was not adopted by the German Army but was adopted by German police and SS forces. It did see service in WW2 with the Chinese though. However, the British copied the MP 28 and called it the Lanchester Submachine Gun and that saw service with the British along with the Thompson and the STEN.
MP34 - A
The Austrian MP 34 was still another development of the MP 18, but this one finally was adopted by the German Wehrmacht and saw frontline service early in the war. However, it was expensive to produce and was replaced early in the war. But would’ve been withdrawn by 1941 with the Fall of France being the last confirmed campaign for the weapon.
MP 40 - A
The iconic submachine of Germany during WW2, the MP 40 entered service unsurprisingly in 1940. Not much more to say here.
M1928A1 - A
The iconic American submachine gun. Used by the British, the French, the Soviets, the American Army and Marines, the Polish Army in Exile, the Australians and the New Zealanders, and that's just the M1928A1 model. Accurately depicting the lack of the 30rd magazine, the 50rd drum magazine was unpopular in real life due to reliability issues.
ZK-383 - B
Originally designed as a lightweight LMG substitute, the ZK-383 was adopted in small numbers by the Waffen-SS as the MP 383(t), but the sources are unclear if they saw combat or were restricted to Military Police roles.
MAB 38 - A
A refinement of the Beretta M1918 (the Automatico 1918 in BF1), this Italian submachine gun would never quite be available in enough numbers to fully equip the Royal Italian Army, instead it was reserved for specialty troops and military police. That doesn't mean it didn't see service though, as it was finally deployed in numbers starting in 1943 just before Italy surrendered to the allies. The Italian Social Republic, the German puppet state set up in northern Italy to continue fighting the allies, used the MAB 38 until the end of the war, and some of the guns wound up in German units.
Type 100 - A
This Japanese submachine gun was developed during the war and was officially adopted in 1940. However, Japanese procurement is a strange and quite frankly insane process, so basically by the time the Type 100 was ready, the IJA wasn't interested in it anymore, instead wanting more Type 99 LMGs. To understand WW2 Japanese small arms procurement, you really got to think differently than the British, French, US or USSR. During WW1, The Japanese had used pre-WW1 tactics and swept the Germans from their colonies in East Asia without serious challenge, and during the thirties they fought the almost comically inept Chinese armies (Chinese interwar military procurement is even more messed up, but I'll get to that later). What this means was that the Imperial Japanese Army was under no pressure to change tactics from what they had learned during the Russo-Japanese war, which showed the importance of machine guns and concentrated rifle fire over, well, anything else. Submachine guns didn't really fit in with that doctrine, so up until they started fighting the British, Australians and Americans on the small, close tropical battlefields of the Pacific and the CBI theater, they did not see anything wrong with their tactics and small arms, which is why less than a thousand Type 100s were made in the initial 1940 order. It wouldn't be until 1944 and the defeats during the Solomon Islands campaign and the stalemate in China and Burma that the Imperial Japanese Army realized how outdated their equipment really was.
M3 Grease Gun - A
The M3 Grease Gun was the American replacement for the expensive, heavy and hard to produce Thompson submachine gun. The M3 was based off the concepts of the MP40, STEN and other emergency war production SMGs, although it was independently designed. While the M3 did see service in the US Army in both the European and Pacific Theaters, the USMC would adopt but not issue it until post-war, making its use in US Marine hands a little ahistorical. However, the Grease Gun was used in at least limited numbers by every Allied nation during the war, and like many other weapons on this list, stayed in frontline service until the 1990s, when it was issued to American tank crews during the Gulf War, and the M3A1 variant is still in service with some militaries and police forces today.
Nambu Type 2A - D
Only prototypes of this 1937 Japanese design were made which were heartily rejected by the Japanese military during tests due to mechanical breakage, malfunctions and extreme unreliability. What few prototypes acquired by the IJA were used during the Battle of Shanghai during the Second Sino-Japanese War, before being withdrawn and disposed of.
Machine Guns
KE7 - C
A Swiss auto rifle trialed by the British Army but was rejected in favor of what would become the BREN gun, probably because the KE-7 is Swiss and, therefore, expensive and overengineered. It would be purchased by some Chinese forces, as it was available and chambered in 8mm Mauser, but any records of Chinese use are unfortunately lost.
BREN - A
The British BREN Gun, Czechoslovak in origin, became an institution of British small arms. By the end of the Great War, the British were one of the pioneers of modern combined arms tactics, especially with LMGs, deploying as many of their Lewis Guns and Hotchkiss Portative Guns as possible. After the war, well, that thinking kind of stayed behind in France, because the British were very slow to adopt any changes to their military small arms. Even their SMLEs, obsolete and about to be replaced before the war started, stayed in service. However, one thing in the Great War that got the British going was that they got to see the American Browning Automatic Rifle, which made them look at their steampunk-esque M1909 Benet-Mercies and awkward Lewis Guns and go “well, shite.” Everyone was still using bolt-action rifles and 18kg+ Machine Guns, but the Americans had one of the greatest Automatic Rifles ever developed. And Tommy was not going to take that sitting down. And in 1922, the British Small Arms Committee was going to adopt a Lewis Gun replacement or die trying. Only well, they didn’t. They recommended keeping the Lewis for cost reasons. But eight years later they tried again, and this time they adopted the BREN gun! Only, not quite. First, they adopted the ZB vz.26, a Czechoslovak copy of the BAR. Only, Britain wanted a few changes. So, they adopted the ZB vz. 27, then the ZB vz. 30, then the ZB vz. 32, and finally, in 1935, the ZGB 33 after deciding that they didn’t want to keep writing the “vz.” part in the middle of the name, which became the BREN when it was licensed to be built in Britain. Finally, the BREN had arrived, a fully modern (for the thirties) LMG which was very portable, could sustain long periods of firing with its quick-change barrel and a top mounted magazine (because it was thought that the assistant gunner could assist with reloading). The British loved the BREN, they put it everywhere, in the hands of a trooper, mounted it on tanks and APCs, put it on tripods for anti-aircraft use. Where the British went, the BREN went, and they used it in a frontline role (rechambered for 7.62 NATO) all the way until the Falklands War (and a little beyond). Fun Fact: British soldiers during WW2 would paint or cover their BREN magazines to try and reduce their profile on the battlefield. The adoption of the BREN was one of the few forward-thinking things the British military did between 1918 and 1939 (or really, ever).
Lewis Gun – A
A WW1-era light machine gun, originally American but more associated with the British…. WAIT A SECOND! What is this thing doing here? Didn’t the British spend fifteen years trying to replace this thing!? Well….. Despite being retired, the Lewis gun saw new life as a front line weapon after the massive f***-up that was Dunkirk. The British lost just about everything they possibly could during the evacuation except lives!, so they had to go into their backrooms and pull out whatever they could get, especially the nearly 60,000 .303 firing Light Machine Guns that helped them win the other war with Jerry. And you know what, it turned out that the British still really liked the Lewis Gun, and they put it on as much stuff as the BREN. Funnily enough, because of its vehicle use, almost three times as many Lewis guns were produced for WW2 than WW1. Not only did the British and Commonwealth reuse it, it was captured and used by both the Germans and Japanese (and in a limited number by the US Navy in .30-06). Despite being considered obsolete before the war, the Lewis Gun would be used through the end of the War being withdrawn from British service in 1946.
FG-42 - A
A German automatic rifle/LMG/carbine/sniper rifle/whatever designed for Paratrooper use. And I mean Paratrooper use. The FG 42 designed to be the only weapon that a Fallschirmjager Regiment would be equipped with, replacing rifles, submachine guns, light machine guns and sniper rifles. Originally saw service starting in 1943, it was deeply unpopular with German High Command because it was such a niche weapon and the preference was for the newly developed MP 43 (later known as the STG 43). Although, the Germans didn’t realize what they had in this weapon, and it would go on to influence American post-war LMG design. The version of the FG 42 in game is the late-war Type III.
MG34 - A
An early war German general-purpose machine gun. Though officially replaced by the MG 42 in 1942, the MG 34 was continued to be produced through the end of the war. The MG34 saw service not only with Germany, but also with China.
MG42 - A
An iconic mid/late war German general-purpose machine gun. Again, extra marks for barrel quick-change animation. The MG42 would start to see combat during the later part of the North Africa campaigns and around the middle of the Battle of Stalingrad in the East. The MG 42 would remain in German service until it was replaced by itself, now chambered for 7.62 NATO instead of 8mm Mauser, which would later finally be replaced with itself again, which is still in service with the Bundeswehr. In fact, production of MG3 receivers restarted in 2019, making this gun the second longest serving MG on this list.
Madsen MG - A
The Danish Madsen MG was the first successful production LMG, dating back to before the first World War. Despite seeing service with just about everyone during WW1, the Madsen was only used throughout the entire Second World War by the Norwegian and German Armies, and for about six hours with the Danish Army. Funnily enough, the version in-game is chambered in 6.5x55mm Swedish, which means that the Madsen featured in game is the Norwegian one (although they would’ve called the round 6.5x55mm Krag). Finally, the Madsen MG is still in service today in some South American Militaries and Police Forces, making it the longest serving gun on the list.
VGO – A
The Vickers Gas Operated was an interwar design for aircraft use, only its awkward shape and the fact it fired from an open bolt made it regulated for gun turret roles only, and it soon equipped Jeeps, Armored Cars and Trucks. Eventually it was adapted to a man-portable variant, which was favored by commandos for its compact profile and high rate of fire, one of the few Allied weapons to be able to match the German MG 42 in rate of fire. Despite being designed in the 30s, the “Land Service” variants of the VGO would not be deployed until 1944.
M1922 MG - C
The Darne MG was a crude, cheap French Machine Gun thought to be derived from the Lewis Gun. Originally designed for the Great War, the war ended before any could be ordered, though some we made inter-war for aircraft use. Largely retired before WW2, we know that somehow, somewhere some Darne MGs were still being used or were still in French inventory because they received a German designation, leMG106 (f), although for the life of me I can’t find the source that DICE uses to say it was still in naval use. Also the “M1922” designation was the aircraft observeanti-aircraft mount variant, not the infantry variant (“M1918” or the later “M1933”)
S2-200 – B
The Steyr-Solothurn S2-200 was a German designed, Austrian and Swiss made light machine gun. Adopted by the militaries of Austria and Hungary (now separate), the S2-200 almost didn’t make it into WW2. When Austria was annexed by Germany, the Austrian stocks of the S2-200 were seized by the Waffen-SS and pressed into service. Actual combat use is unconfirmed, but likely. The S2-200 would also serve as the progenitor of a line of aircraft mounted MGs.
M1918A2 – A
The WW2 version of the BAR that saw service throughout the war with the US Army and US Marines. After WW1, the United States Army came to the same conclusion as anyone reading about it since 1918 onward: Walking Fire was dumb. Like, really, really dumb. The only problem was that the US Army had just developed, built and more importantly bought the greatest Walking Fire rifle ever devised; the Browning Automatic Rifle. What was really in fashion now were these things called Light Machine Guns, and oh, boy did the US Army want to get their hands on one. So, some genius thought, “hey, we got ourselves these big, beautiful, essentially perfect Automatic Rifles. Why don’t we just convert them over to LMGs? Just slap a bipod on them and call it a day, eh?” And bam, the M1918A1 was born. Only, it sucked. The A1 just was not cutting it in the light machine gun role, after all it was designed for slow, accurate fire while moving, not stationary suppressive fire. And it was heavy AF. So, the guys at Springfield Armory went back to the drawing boards and did everything they could to increase firepower, decrease weight and assist with cooling. And well, the result was the M1981A2, a Light not-quite-Machine Gun.
M1919A6 – A
The Machine Gun, Caliber .30, Browning, M1919A6 was an American Machine Gun developed from the Browning M1919, which in turn was developed from the Browning M1917, featured in BF1. The Browning M1917 and M1919 were essentially the same gun. Originally developed for tanks (where water cooling was impractical) the M1919 came about once the US Army realized that the M1917 wasn’t running quite hot enough to require water cooling (post-war they would realize that it could’ve definitely benefited from a quick change barrel, but I digress) and the lighter weight of the M1919 was very popular with the machine gunners who used the things. Now, these guns were basically the most perfect Heavy Machine Guns ever seen on God’s green Earth, at least, for WW1. And the US militaries had no complaints about using them for another world war. But… ‘member that LMG thing with the BAR? How it was a “Light not-quite-Machine Gun?” Yeah, even that adaption wasn’t cutting it for the US, especially once soldiers started coming up against the MG 42. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on how you see it), the US still apparently had that guy with the BAR conversion ideas. “Hey, we got ourselves these big, beautiful, essentially perfect Heavy Machine Guns. Why don’t we just convert them over to LMGs? Just slap a bipod and buttstock on them and call it a day, eh?” And bam, the M1919A6 not-quite-Light Machine Gun was born. It was overweight (insert American joke here), but it actually worked as an LMG, though a stopgap solution at best. It first saw service in 1943 and would last through the end of the war.
Type 97 LMG – A
This Japanese Light Machine Gun is cosmetically similar to the BREN gun, well, because it is similar to the BREN gun. Remember that Czechoslovak ZB vz. 26 that the British kind of, but not really adopted before designing the BREN gun? Yeah, well, you know who bought it and issued it without any fuss? China. You know who lost a lot of battles and therefor small arms to Japan during the early stages of the war? Well, ok, yeah, I guess the US, Britain and the Dutch, but I was thinking China. Some back story first; The Japanese, in the ‘30s, were still using their Type 11 LMGs in a frontline role. Now, the Type 11 was a Hotchkiss-style light machine gun (think a Benet-Mercie from BF1) with a hopper feed system (think Perino 1907 from BF1). And the Japanese were just about the only military in the world to take hopper feeds seriously. They were loose, they let dust and dirt get into the action, and they usually weren’t reliable, but they had one advantage over ammo belt and box magazine systems: you could reload them while firing. To the Imperial Japanese Army, this was a BFD or big deal, because their machine gun doctrine was very much developed, not from the Great War like literally everyone else, but from the Russo-Japanese War. This is why they resisted change for so long, because it had always worked for them before. That is, until they encountered the ZB vz. 26, a modern, reliable LMG that outclassed just about everything that they had in their inventory. With the lessons learned from those captured guns the Japanese were able to develop their own quasi-copy of the gun and called it the Type 97 because all the guys that can think up original names for guns are British. The Type 97 saw service starting in 1937 and was being produced and deployed through the end of the war.
Shotguns
M30 Drilling - B
A German triple barrel shotgun, with two shotgun barrels and a large bore rifle barrel. Issued to the Luftwaffe crews operating in North Africa as a survival weapon, because, for some reason, the Luftwaffe thought that downed aircrews needed protection from tigers, lions or elephants in the deserts of North Africa. They didn’t. The M30 probably didn’t see much frontline use, but I mean, anything’s possible?
12g Automatic - A
The American Browning Auto 5 returns in BFV as the 12g Automatic. It would continue to serve in the US military as a substitute standard through the Vietnam War. However, the extended magazine was a commercial modification and was not actually used by any military.
M1897 - A
The American made and designed Winchester Model 1897 Trench Gun (semi-) returns in BFV as the M1897. Originally adopted in the 1890s for military police and guardsmen, the Model 1897 is one of the most identifiable military shotguns ever produced. Unlike in WW1, the WW2-era M1897s were fully developed Trench Guns with bayonet lugs, heat shields and most importantly, brass cased ammo. These weapons were in the US Army, Navy and Marine armories from the beginning of the war until the end, and beyond, finally being replaced by more modern designs in the 1980s after production ended in 1957.
Bolt-Action Rifles and Carbines
Gewehr M95/30 - A
An Austrian bolt-action rifle. The WW1-era Mannlicher M95 was shortened in the thirties, and the ammo was changed. Here’s the thing about the ammo, and I assume why this gun behaves so differently from BF1; it now fires a full power cartridge. Anyone familiar with the BF1 M1895 would know that it is the only smokeless rifle in the game without a sweet spot (Trench variants excepted). This is because during WW1 the Mannlicher M1895 fired 8x50mmR, which was a weaker, semi-smokeless round used in the previous M1886/90 and M1888/90. The Austro-Hungarians just weren’t ready to let go of that 8x50mmR, probably because they weren’t ready to let go of those M1886/90 and M1888/90 rifles, too. But by the thirties, these rifles were long out of date, but the M1895 could handle a much more powerful round, and both Austria and Hungary adopted a new 8x56mmR spitzer cartridge, roughly 25% more powerful than the WW1-era round, which explains the improved performance for BFV.
Krag-Jørgenson - A
The Norwegian M1894 Krag-Jørgensen rifle. A version of the weapon was adopted by the United States in the 1890s, but these M1892 Krags barely got into the Great War and by the time WW2 came around these were long out of US hands. However, these are not those guns. This gun is the Norwegian version of the gun which saw service with the Norwegian Army during the early part of 1940, and the Germans who ordered them to free up Kar98s for other troops.
Lee-Enfield No 4 Mk I - A
A British bolt-action short rifle. There is a saying that armies are always prepared for the last war, and nobody exemplifies that adage like the British, except the Brits weren’t even prepared for that one again. They got caught in the exact same problems they wrangled with in the Great War, chiefly their SMLE was just too complicated to make quickly. Enter the Rifle No 4 Mk I (Pronounced “Rifle Number Four Mark One”). The Rifle No 4 Mk I was a mid-war replacement of the venerable Short Magazine Lee-Enfield, or SMLE, and was based on a simplified SMLE action and furniture. The No 4 Mk I entered service in late 1942 and first saw action during the Tunisian Campaigns, and the No 4 Mk I and the improved No 4 Mk I* would see action throughout the end of the war.
Kar98k - A
A German bolt-action short rifle. Like the British the Germans adopted a newer version of the previous war’s rifle; the Karabiner 98k was a shortened and refined version of the WW1-era Gewehr 98. Unlike the Brits, the Germans had the wherewithal to adopt their new rifle before the war started, not after.
Ross Rifle Mk III – C
A Canadian Bolt Action rifle, the Ross Rifle was developed by Canada because of their inability to acquire Short Magazine Lee Enfields during the Boer War, being as the SMLE was just too complicated to produce… Hmmm, sound familiar? This gun just barely makes the cut in this WW2 game. It was issued to Canadian reservists and coastal defense troops and the British Home Guard but did not see frontline service as far as I can tell.
Type 99 - A
This Japanese bolt-action rifle was developed from the Type 38 (featured in BF1) but was chambered for the much more powerful 7.7mm Arisaka round, and was intended to replace the Type 38, but war production could not keep up with demands. The diminutive 6.5mm Arisaka round was developed to better suit smaller Japanese soldiers but was found to not perform as well with machine guns. The much larger and much more powerful 7.7mm Arisaka round wound up being one of the more powerful rifle rounds of the war. The Type 99 saw service starting in 1939 and was used through the 1950s by various post-war states.
Commando Carbine - A
The De Lisle Carbine was one of the first weapons designed specifically for special operations. It was a mismash of SLME, Thompson and M1911 parts that could fire a .45ACP round 185m at 250m/s while only making 85db of noise. That’s the noise of a loud high five. It saw service from 1942 to 1945 with the British Commandos, Paratroops and the SOE and the American OSS in a very limited capacity.
M28 Con Tromboncino - D
This Italian carbine was an adaptation of their M1891 Special Troop Carbine with a grenade launcher. This rifle with integral grenade launch, a very modern concept, was sadly undercooked and poorly executed. Designed to fire concussion grenades, the system never seemed to work properly and was awkward, heavy and unpopular. It withdrawn from service in 1935. Also, DICE messes up the nomenclature, “M28 Con Tromboncino” means M28 with a little trumpet but the M28 is the official name for the grenade launcher. So, it’s “Grenade launcher with grenade launcher.” It should be M91TS Con Tromboncino or M91/28. The grenade launcher did not see service, but the base rifle did.
Jungle Carbine – A
The Rifle No. 5 Mk I was a shortened and lightened version of the Rifle No. 4 Mk I intended to be used by paratroopers, although many were sent to the Pacific and CBI theaters where their short length was a great asset in jungle fighting. Starting production in 1944, the Rifle No. 5 would be produced for three short years and would see service through the end of the war and into the Korean War and the other small post-war colonial conflicts. It would not gain its nickname “Jungle Carbine” until post war, though. The Rifle No. 5 was phased out of active service in the 50s.
Self-Loading Rifles
Model 8 - F
An American autoloading rifle. You might ask yourself, huh, why is the Remington Model 8 here? Surely this second-line, pre-WW1 hunting-rifle-to-air-rifle that had been out of production for years before the war started is completely unnecessary in a war where automatic rifles were plentiful and common. And you’d be right. I honestly wish I had a lower ranking than F for this one because not only did the Remington Model 8 not see action in WW2, the depiction in-game is also incorrect. The weapon model in BFV is a mixture of different Remington autoloaders; the pistol grip stock comes from a Remington Model 81, the swing swivels from a Police Special, but the wooden foregrip is from an early Remington Model 8. Overall, the weapon model is a mess, made worse by the fact that, historically, this gun should not have even been in this game.
ZH-29 - C
A Czechoslovak semi-automatic rifle. Big, complicated and awkward, this interwar monstrosity was not officially adopted by any military, but it was definitely bought and used by somebody in China. Despite every source on these saying that the Chinese bought them, I cannot figure out who actually used these in China, because due to the way Chinese procurement worked individual regiments were equipped with different equipment, the only common thread being the standardization of 8mm Mauser. Because of that, I can’t honestly say that this gun fought in WW2. Some people say that photos of this gun in Chinese use exist, but I just can’t find any verifiable sources.
RSC - C
The French RSC M1917 makes a return in BFV. Originally developed as a semi-automatic conversion of the venerable Lebel Mle 1889, but realistically it was an almost entirely different weapon. The M1917 might’ve seen limited use at the beginning of WW2, but it is more likely these were RSC M1918, an improved version. At least some of these guns were issued, or were planned to be issued, to German units because it seems the RSC received a German military designation; “Selbstlade-Gewehr 310(f).”
Selbstlader 1906 – F
This WW1-era German prototype rifle did not see service in WW1 and definitely did not see service in WW2. Only one copy of this gun is known to exist and the only reason we know that this pattern exists at all is because it turned up at an auction about fifteen years ago and a corresponding patent was found dating the rifle to 1906. Still, more historically accurate than the Hellriegel.
Anti-Material Rifles
Boys AT Rifle - A
The British Boys Anti-Tank Rifle was one of the last true anti-tank rifle developed (instead of mixed anti-material rifles). It saw service from the beginning of the war through the end, officially, but likely stopped being a frontline weapon sometime around 1943 when the PIAT and M2 Browning became available in numbers. The US Marines used the Boys in the Pacific Theater, both in its intended role and for shooting literally anything else because they’re Marines. It was also used by the Finnish during the Winter War; here’s a picture of some Finnish troopers about to crack open a cold one.
Panzerbüchse 39 – A
The German counterpart to the Boys, the Panzerbüchse 39 was a single shot rifle similar to the WW1-era T-Gewehr it was developed from. Like the Boys, it saw diminishing returns against enemy armor and was officially withdrawn in 1944.

2019.09.04 22:07 savabanana I'm stuck and hopeless.

I really can't keep my thoughts straight. Everything is sort of scattered. So I was dating this guy who was stationed in Hawaii (USMC) right? We talked everyday via phone, facetime, text, etc for the last four months. I flew out to meet him twice. Once, in Georgia. Second, in Hawaii. Granted, I am the ONLY ONE who has ever visited him during his time being based there. It meant a lot. We discussed marriage and I was even filling out an application so when I went to see him again in November we could just go and get married. Seemed real. I was happy. He was happy. I think? The distance was hard and I'll admit that I was insecure and stubborn most of the time. He decided to break up with me on text right after I gave him some heat about staying at a friends house without informing me. I just wanted to be kept in the loop. Okay so, the morning we broke up we actually spoke on the phone. Seemed fine. He told me he may be deployed to Japan from Dec-June and that maybe it's best I don't make any arrangements to move out there just yet. The conversation started to run dry. I remember I kept saying I was scared and I don't know what we do. He didn't know what to say as well. So fast forward a couple of hours later to the official shithole of my break up. He told me he was done and that he can't do it anymore. Of course, I didn't let it go lightly and I was nasty but what else do you expect from a girl who put herself in debt for foolish love?! He blocked me on EVERYTHING - instagram, snapchat, facebook, my motherfucking number too. Just like that, SNAP. HE'S GONE. For the last couple of weeks I have been reaching out using a fake texting app or snap(s) just to know what I can do and why he has done this to me. He won't give me much besides, "you need to move on" or "I'm done I'm sorry". It makes me feel so bad on my part. I keep dwelling on EVERYTHING I have done from April - now. Trying to replay scenarios in my head. Deciding at what point did it go wrong. I am typing this frantically at work. It's not all pieced together the way I hoped it would be. I've been reading many forums/posts regarding breaking up. Please drop some feedback.

For the last couple of weeks I have been reaching out using a fake texting app or snap(s) just to know what I can do and why he has done this to me. He won't give me much besides, "you need to move on" or "I'm done I'm sorry". It makes me feel so bad on my part. I keep dwelling on EVERYTHING I have done from April - now. Trying to replay scenarios in my head. Deciding at what point did it go wrong. I am typing this frantically at work. It's not all pieced together the way I hoped it would be. I've been reading many forums/posts regarding breaking up. Please drop some feedback.

2019.08.07 07:07 ithostabegood Is this even possible?

Forgive me, I'm not familiar with military language etc but my sister is dating a guy who claims he was in the Marines. Long story but he is the ex-husband of a distant acquaintance. He was married to this friend at the time he said he was in the Marines. He was actually living a town away from me this whole time. When I asked when/where he served, he told me this:
I served from 97 to 2007. 3rd reconnaissance, 3rd Marines Okinawa, Japan
I googled this Marine group and it sounds like this group was in the Middle East during this time and not in Japan. Is this correct? I don't want my sister dating this liar. I would like to be able to call him out. I'm female btw. Thanks for the help!
***Update: I went on our local county court records and found traffic citations (there was at least one for every year he said he was in... the guy gets lots of tickets!) as well as court documents and records for his divorce that took place in 2005. I also found a LinkedIn profile for him (even with his photo!) that listed every one of his employers from 1998-present. Unless he was working at Jiffy Lube in Japan, he's a liar!
As I mentioned, he's kind of an idiot and doesn't realize this information is out there and searchable. In this thread I was looking for something I could ask him about his "military service" to take him by surprise and out him in personand in front of my sister. What I realized is that I don't understand enough about the military and USMC to be able to effectively pull that off! I appreciate every comment here trying to help. Thank you to all of you who have served in any branch!

2019.07.15 04:57 sniper-kia7 Am I asking too much or am I in the right

So me and my girlfriend have been dating for a while now (2 years and some change) and it started out we had sex all the time. Now it’s like a once every few months. But the other day she decided to act all sexy and I took her shopping ( which I hate with a burning passion but I do it for her), I get her a fancy dinner and give her an hour long massage. And things started getting a sexual and she stops saying “I just want to cuddle” and I asked if I could at least get a hand job. By the way I’m a 21 year old medically retired veteran of the USMC. And she got all mad at me because I had a massive boner, saying all I want is sex and that I’m just using her, I love her with all my heart and I do not ask for sex that often only when she shows that she wants it. Am I in the wrong or what. Not good at relationships but I feel like after you tease me for an hour I should get a little something. Please help.

2019.07.03 04:13 StrategicSpic COMPILED RESOURCES LIST 3.0

navyseals Compiled Archives and Resources List
Over the years, this sub has produced a number of noteworthy and informative posts by members from various SOF and military units. While many of these resources come from the blue shirts and other military members on this sub, several of our civilian members have also produced noteworthy content. Below is a comprehensive list of all the posts I consider to be useful for all aspiring SOF dudes.
Compiled Reading Recommendations List
Blueshirt and Military AMAs
u/Nowyourdoingit’s AMA - This is one of the first posts I read upon finding the subreddit, and frankly, I’d say it’s some of the best information out there on the Teams. NYDI sets the record straight on much of the Big Navy recruiting propaganda and forces readers to take off the rose-tinted lenses in order to view the SEAL Teams and lifestyle with a critical eye. In the words of one member, “Nowyourdoingit is the kind of guy that is incredibly perceptive of what's happening around him, and is articulate enough to express his thoughts on the matter in a way that it can be understood easily and even profoundly.” If you plan on spending any time here, you’d best take his words into account. The original AMA link (not expanded) can be found here.
u/beastcoastfrog’s AMA - BeastCoastFrog was a Team Guy who modded the subreddit some years back. Those who have been on the sub since 2015 remember his ridiculous humor fondly and may, on occasion, punctuate conversations with references to BCF’s love for whiskey and dildos. While his account is gone, the persistent redditor may be able to piece through some of the older posts and figure out which posts were written by BCF.
u/NSWMotivator’s AMA. - NSWM (now u/nosubsforme) is one of our blue shirt mods and a beloved disciple of the Great Leader Kim Jong Un. He was a BUD/S instructor, has seen some serious shit, and is a straight shooter when it comes to divulging information.
LCDR Justin Legg’s AMA – Justin Legg was a member of BUD/S Class 234 (if you haven’t seen the documentary series, stop reading this right now, go watch the whole series, then return) and is a cancer survivor. The dude is a certified badass and hardcore motherfucker.
u/Dudethissucks’ AMA - u/Dudethissucks is a member of this subreddit who became a SEAL and posted during the pipeline to share information and give us some insight as to what to expect, how to develop yourself mentally, and just pay it forward in general.
ScubaSteve’s AMA - u/SCUBA_STEVE34 is another redditor who became a SEAL and posts on this sub. He has put out a plethora of great information on the Teams and SOF in general, much of which is linked in later sections. He also did a second AMA in April 2020.
Jocko Willink’s AMA – Retired SEAL, MMA gym owner, and podcast host Jocko Willink did an AMA in October 2017. Some decent stuff in here; keep in mind most of Jocko’s responses are only a few words’ worth.
Mario Romero’s AMA – Mario Romero is a GWOT veteran and graduate of Class 253 who is now pursuing a career in astrophysics and works helping veterans. He’s an all-around solid dude paying it forward, like the other guys who have helped us out.
u/TeamsAndShit's AMA - u/TeamsAndShit goes over some of the common misconceptions wannabes in 2020 have of a career in SOF and some of the operational differences between SEALs and other SOF careers.
A TG AMA From 2011
A Verified Brown Shirt’s AMA
u/learnslo’s AMA - u/learnslo is an active-duty Navy SARC and a good source of information on Recon, MARSOC, and other USMC SOF stuff. Definitely worth reading.
Navy EOD AMA - 2017 - A Navy EOD Tech does an AMA on fitness and gives readers some insight into his workout routines and life as a Navy EOD tech.
Navy EOD AMA-2018 – Another Navy EOD Tech does a two-part AMA and sheds some light onto what Navy EOD is really like.
BUD/S Dud AMAs
Several BUD/S drops, some of whom were frequent posters on this sub, have returned to do AMAs on their time in the pipeline. They’re worth a read and offer a look at the other, statistically more likely side of the SEAL pipeline.
Bryan P Black’s AMA - The founder of ITS Tactical, Bryan P Black was a BUD/S student who suffered a diving accident in 2nd Phase and was med dropped from the program. He decided to pay it forward and give us some insight into the first half of BUD/S.
u/adam_aldaddah’s AMA
u/Grindz117’s AMA
u/ForeverChicago’s AMA
u/Fatboy69’s Big 6
u/Feedmemarshmallows69’s AMA
u/EchoAlphaRomeo’s AMA
u/Odysseus’ AMA
u/cabinfervor’s AMA
Another BUD/S Drop's AMA
u/Yebloc1231's AMA
General Useful Content
Your Life Trajectory - The life advice I'm sure many of us wish we had received or listened to when we were teenagers with a world of possibilities before us. Bottom line: be a good dude, put out, give a fuck, and the rest will fall into place.
Selection Statistics Are Stupid, And Have No Bearing On Whether Or Not You'll Make It - If you're the guy who worries about whether or not your athletic background was the right one for BUD/S, what the stats for Hell Week grads are, or what gadget/program/dildo will increase your odds of success at selection, do yourself a favor and quit over-analyzing and agonizing over the little shit. The vast majority of the factors in selection are out of your control, but what you can control is your personal development and physical preparation, which are ultimately what determine your success.
Ethics on the Battlefield – British soldier Andy Owen discusses the benefits of studying philosophy as a combat-arms professional and how the thought processes such a study strengthens help combat veterans deal with what they have seen and done.
Some Thoughts on Spiritual Resilience. - u/froggy184 is a former Marine infantryman, retired Team Guy, GWOT veteran, and member of the Mighty Oaks Warrior Project who posts very useful information regarding the Teams and life in general on this subreddit. Because of his work with veterans in a religious setting, froggy184 has a unique take on what it takes spiritually to be a good SOF dude and a good man in today’s special operations unit culture and environment.
All In - An essay written by former Recon Marine Jimmy Stare. Stare presents the stark, often terrible reality of what a SOF guy can expect in the long run out of his career, and as such, every man looking to become a special operator needs to read this.
An Open Letter About the Falling Standards at SFQC - The link in the post is to a letter (posted on SOFREP) written describing the detrimental qualities of the Army Special Forces pipeline, specifically their Special Forces Qualification Course. Within the post is a good discussion on the contents of the letter. Those who are seriously considering a career in Army Special Operations should read both the letter and the official response to that letter.
Finance for Frogmen - This man offers financial advice to new guys and active guys alike. Not sure if he's still doing his thing and helping us out, but this thread alone was interesting.
Interview with two active-duty Navy SARCsu/beautbonza sat down with two active-duty Navy SARCs and describes his interaction with them and the insight they gave him into the SARC path.
Just Remember Guys, Everyone is the Hero of Their Own Story… – If you guys ever fell for the notion that we’re all trying to be modern-day crusaders and fight for the Stars and Stripes, think again. It’s not as black and white as we might like to think.
The Blue Shirts Give Their Take on Gallagher For those who don't know, SOC Ed Gallagher was accused of stabbing an ISIS fighter who had surrendered multiple times, in addition to other crimes. In this post, the blue shirts chime in on the moral quandaries of war and how having a strong moral compass is absolutely necessary for the modern-day warfighter.
The Principles of Extreme Ownership – Some notes from one of our members on what the concept of Extreme Ownership is at its core.
Operational Leadership by LCDR Louis J. Schager – This particular piece analyzes the operational leadership qualities of General MacArthur, General Schwarzkopf, and General Clark for the Naval War College, and pulls the best from these examples to form a strategy for training competent operational leaders in today’s combat environment.
Sage Advice From u/cesrep - u/cesrep, an old member of this sub, expresses some of what he thinks are the flaws in today’s foreign policy.
Wounded In Combat – This piece comes from a redditor some years ago. I wasn’t able to find the original source but found it to be a thought-provoking read nonetheless.
On the Apparent Beef ARSOF Has With NSW – For those who don’t know, there often exists a tribal rivalry of sorts between various SOF branches’ units. In this post, NYDI gives his thoughts on why he thinks some Army SOF guys see NSW in a negative light. For further discussion, check this post out.

2019.06.21 05:51 lexrey035 What to expect after basic/uncertainty? 17(f)/18(m,USMC)

Hello, please bear with me because I can’t really organize my thoughts so this is longgg. My boyfriend graduates from USMC boot camp in about a week and I’m really excited to be able to see him again, but lately I’ve started feeling kind of anxious and uncertain about a few things.
Though we knew each other for about 2 years, we only started dating roughly 2 months before he left for basic, so the relationship is fairly new. I was hesitant because he’s my first serious relationship and I wasn’t sure about the long distance and letters-only communication for 3 months, but I ended up enjoying the routine of writing every night and checking the mail. Things went a lot smoother than expected and time has honestly flown. I thought lack of communication would be an issue, but even with his sparse free time, I’ve still heard from him at least once a week.
Still, I have had friends and family asking me about what my long term expectations are with him/questioning if I can handle long distance, and I don’t know if it’s everybody else getting into my head or a legitimate concern of mine, but recently I’ve felt uncertain. He plans to stay in the military (he’ll only be home briefly before he goes to SOI) and I’ll only be entering my senior year. I have pretty set plans for college (just juggling a few options of where I want to attend, depending on scholarship opportunities & acceptance) meanwhile there’s no way to know where he’ll be in the future, but most likely we’ll be heading in very different directions. I have no idea how often we will get to see each other.
Though the situation isn’t ideal, I’m really happy with him and proud even if it’s not convenient, but I feel like a lot of the people around me aren’t so optimistic. Is it wrong of me to say that I want to try for as long as we’re both willing to put in the effort? Maybe in the long term I have no idea if it’ll work out, but I don’t want to break up prematurely and miss out on a good relationship.
I don’t want my anxieties and overthinking to put a damper on just enjoying the time we do have to be together after graduation. I just wish I had a better vision of what to expect after SOI and everything - a lot of what I’ve read online and stuff has been targeted towards military spouses/fiancés, or people who are just generally older than I am and not in very comparable situations. I don’t even know what exactly I’m looking for advice on. I would love to hear from anyone that may be in a similar situation (or has been before) and from anyone who can give me an idea of what to expect after boot camp as an unmarried SO. His branch is the Marine Corps. We were only able to communicate with letters for the past (nearly) 3 months - will they have their phones at SOI, and if so, how often can they use them? Any other related knowledge or comments would be really appreciated, too.
