So, most people know that the STG-44 is the world’s first assault rifle. It was always my understanding that after WWII, several German weapons designers went to Spain and, using many attributes of the STG-44, designed the CETME rifle which was the father of the H&K G-3 rifle. Well, I was close. I will let Ian, over at Forgotten Weapons, give you the whole story. Watch all of it, it is very interesting.
