Sten Mark II S

Sten Mark II S



The Phoenix Command rules cover silenced weapons in the Advanced Rules supplement. However since data was available for this weapon and I decided to generate it anyway as I need it for my campaign. This is my first version of the silenced Sten SMG. If anyone has additions or comments, please let me know.

This was a Sten submachine gun with an integral silencer. The gun was almost inaudible at a few yards distance - most of the sound came from the mechanical bolt movements - but was intended to be fired with single shots only as automatic fire quickly wore out the baffles of the silencer. The effective range of the gun was reduced considerably.

The weapon was used by Britain and possibly other members of the British Commonwealth during World War II, as well as by the U.S. Special Forces in Vietnam.
