Weapon Background[edit]

The MP40 was a submachine gun chambered for the 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge. It was developed in Nazi Germany and used extensively by the Axis powers during World War II.Designed in 1938 by Heinrich Vollmer with inspiration from its predecessor the MP38, it was heavily used by infantrymen, paratroopers, platoon and squad leaders on the Eastern and Western Front. Its advanced and modern features made it a favorite among soldiers and popular in countries from various parts of the world after the war.

The MP40 submachine gun is open-bolt, blowback-operated automatic arms. The only mode of fire was fully automatic, but the relatively low rate of fire enabled single shots with controlled trigger pulls.The MP38 receiver was made of machined steel, but this was a time-consuming and expensive process.To save time and materials, and thus increase production, construction of the MP 40receiver was simplified by using stamped steel and electro-spot welding as much as possible. The MP38 also features longitudinal grooving on the receiver and bolt, as well as a circular opening on the magazine housing. These features were eliminated on the MP40.[1]


With attire that calls to mind a member of the German Schutzstaffel, MP40 is both professional and a little intimidating. Much of her attire is comparable to some of the other German WWII-era T-Dolls, such as MG MG42, MG FG42, and HG C96. The uniform has had its Nazi symbolism removed, replaced with more contemporary German regalia such as the Iron Cross (from WWI). She also carries a saber, but does not actually employ it. Her design gives her a distinctive battlefield presence; whereas many T-Dolls favor more civilian-oriented attire, MP40 cheerfully wears her oldschool gear, largely because of the vibe it gives off.

Her Thumbelina costume is a cutesy version of her normal attire, replacing the fancy dress uniform with an old dress favored in pre-war era Germany. It also festoons her weapon with pretty ribbons, fitting as the costume is basically MP40 turned into a little girl.



  • The experimental version of MP40 called MP40/I had 2 magazine housings, allowing operators to switch to another magazine without inserting a fresh magazine by pressing the latch at the front of magazine housing. The MP40/I was cancelled before entering a service or simply further test. The weight of MP40 became 12 pound heavier over the normal one, and the vulnerability of jamming was the reason to cancel the dual-mag production.[2]
  • Her name was MP38 in official art before changed as MP40 a year ago.[3]
  • MP40's uniform appears to be based on the Panzer uniform worn by German tank crews during WW2. This would likely fit in with the the weapon's role as personal defense for tank crews, as well as the black coloration which was designed to prevent oil stains from showing on the uniform. The saber that she carries is likely also a reference to the fact that submachine guns were often carried by commanding officers of infantry platoons at the time.
