American soldier fires Thompson

Soldier fires M1921.

The Thompson submachine gun more commonly referred to as "Tommy gun", is an American submachine gun, invented by John T. Thompson in 1919, that became infamous during the Prohibition era. It was a common sight in the media of the time, being used by both law enforcement officers and criminals.

In Inglourious BasterdsEdit

In "Nation's Pride", some American soldiers are seen carrying the M1921 version. M1928A1s, M1s, or M1A1s would have been more time-appropriate, but its very likely that since "Nation's Pride" is a German-made film, it would be easier for the supposed armorers of it to acquire older M1921 Thompsons.
