Developed in early 1945 for use by German Army Units, The Grossfuss Strumgewehr Assault Rifle was one of several successful attempts by The German Army to field a ''true'' automatic assault rifle. While unclear as to just how many were actually produced, several were captured by Soviet Invasion Forces of The City of Berlin in 1945. A 7.92mm ammunition, clip-fed automatic (blowback) weapon, The Grossfuss could maintain a 500-700rpm cyclic rate. A 30-round metal fed clip was easily replaced by a Soldier. The Grossfuss was also light, at 10-pounds. The maximum effective range was 300-meters.

 

While designed for Elite Units such as The Panzergrenadiers – The Grossfuss was most probably used by the Civilian formed United known as The Volkssturm. While only partially trained, The Volkssturm armed with The Grossfuss could easily defend city blocks against invading forces. One partially complete Grossfuss still remains in existence on display in St. Petersburg, Russia.
