TDI Vector-KRISS Vector Submachine GunSubmachine guns are known as the selective-fire shoulder type of weapon or also known as automatic weapon that works by firing the ammunition of pistol-caliber. The concept for this type of weapons first known to appear in World War I when the trench of warfare needed the compact weapons those will effectively worked at short range as well as being light weighted weapons. World War I sub machine guns were meant to complement the machine guns used at war. Submachine guns would be useful for the tactic of defensive as well as being offensive. Soon, submachine guns became the convenient choice of weapons.

The first weapons considered as submachine guns was Italian Villar-Perosa. This was known as automatic weapon with twin-barrel which would fire Glisenti 9mm pistol ammunition. As mentioned before, it was meant to complement machine guns so this first known concept of submachine guns mounted on machine guns to make more conventional to be used. Later on, the world finally introduced to weapons those officially offered as submachine guns. It was called Bergmann or Schmeister MP.18,I which was seen during the end of Great War. It was shoulder-fired weapon which had the concept had by the previous weapons known having the same concept with submachine type of guns.

The development of submachine guns continued from time to time. There were various models available for military use and around the time of World War II, this type of guns became most used military weapons. It was used as secondary role in army troops. World War II submachine guns had various models already and amongst all of those submachine guns, MP-38 as well as MP-40 known as the most advanced. Soviet army used submachine guns as primary weapons for the entire battalions of armies. Back then Soviet chose to use PPSH-41.

Submachine guns are very well known and became the main choice for armies back then. The guns worked very well when being used alongside the machine guns but it also had some flaws like its power was not enough to be used in wider range. The armies of the modern world chose to use the assault rifles as the primary weapons. Although so, the use of submachine guns will still become very useful for the specific tactics of war. For example is these guns are capable to be used silently and that means the special force will be able to take benefits from this ability of submachine guns.
