Weapon Background[edit]

Moschetto Automatico Beretta Modello 1938, commonly known as Beretta Model 38, originally designed by Beretta's chief engineer Tullio Marengoni in 1935, developed based on the Beretta Model 18 and 18/30, this weapon would be classified as a submachine gun under modern definitions.

With the sudden interest in automatic handgun cartridge firing weapons, Beretta presented their Model 38 to the market customers, originally designed and advertised to policing and special army units. Limited industrial capability of Italy mean Model 38 series were produced in much slower rates than the other popular SMGs of that era, Model 38 and derived variants were produced from 1938 til 1950, it only became available in large numbers after 1943.

Model 38 is a fully automatic 9mm Luger/Parabellum calibre firearm, operation of the weapon relies on simple blowback. Having around 200 metres of effective range and 600 rounds per minute of cyclic rate of fire, while fed with straight magazines of various sizes, most common size being 30-rounds. A single wooden block serves as the weapon housing and the stock, the barrel is coated a perforated cooling jacket.

Brass ejects out from the right side from beneath the sliding dust cover. The unique trigger group of Model 38 offers selective firing function, the weapon have two triggers, puling the front trigger can produce a semi-automatic shot, while holding down the rear trigger will unleash full automatic firing.

MAB 38 served both the Italian military and their Axis allies during the Second World War, as well as exported to many other nations after the war. Despite being relatively long (946mm in length) for a SMG at the time, the weapon was said to be robust and reliable, it received positive feedback from both domestic military and Axis forces alike due to the exceptional craftsmanship of Beretta. Model 38 and variants continued to serve as a ceremonial weapon for the Italian Navy after retiring from front line fighting.[1]


A T-doll of around 150cm of body height, aside from the short skirt and white stockings, much of MAB 38 outfit are designed with reference to the Italian Military uniforms during WW2. Notable example being her magazine pouches, it resembles the "Samurai" magazine-holding vest used by the Italian army at the time.

Three other distinctive design features on MAB represents three periods which Model 38 was actively used:

  • The badge on her beret is taken from the 3rd Infantry Division Ravenna of Royal Italian Army. A veteran division of Italian Army that was part of the Italian III Corps, took part in various battles from the Italian invasion of France all the way into USSR territories, until suffered heavy casualties and retreated from battles near Don River.[2]
  • MAB's collar insignia however resembles the insignia used by the Italian Blackshirt, due to the small batch produced, early produced MAB 38s were only available to selected few military units, one of which is the Blackshirts.
  • The red tie she wears is a reference to the anti-Fascism movement in northern Italy after the the nation announced surrender to the allied forces on September the 8th 1943. The movement supporters are often found wearing a red tie.[3]

As evident from the cooling jacket, shape of the weapon housing and the muzzle device, MAB 38 carries the earliest production Model 38.
