C-2

Notes: Despite the resemblance, this is not merely a small version of the British Sterling, but is in fact an independent development of the same company that makes the CETME series of weapons. Internally, it resembles the operation of the Star series of submachineguns, including resistance to accidental firing and multiple safeties. Though most of these weapons are chambered for 9mm Parabellum, some are made for the 9mm Largo round; these are normally used by police instead of the military.

CETME Firing Port Weapon

Notes: This "shorty" version of the CETME-C battle rifle was designed to be used from firing ports on Spanish APCs and IFVs. It is a stockless, short-barreled version of that rifle, with a special attachment near the muzzle to allow it to be readily inserted into firing ports. The CETME firing port weapon uses an enlarged cocking handle from an MG-3 machinegun, since the normal cocking handle is difficult to use as it is near the firing port collar.

Twilight 2000 Notes: These weapons, like others of their kind, are being used in large numbers as conventional firearms by 2000.

DUX

Notes: This is a Spanish copy of a Finnish copy of a Soviet PPS-43. The Spanish changed the caliber to 9mm Parabellum, and then sold it to the West German Border Police, who ordered 1000 of them. However, some problems arose with the license for the weapon (or rather the lack of one), and the Germans cancelled any further orders. That was the end of the weapon.

Labora

Notes: This is a Spanish Civil War weapon that was built to a surprising level of quality for that period of time and place. The Labora was machined from solid steel and assembled with screws and pins instead of welds. The bolt is very light and small, necessitating a very heavy and stiff recoil spring. Fire selection is done by a cross-bolt selector rather than a switch. Due to the high quality, Laboras encountered today will still function quite reliably Ė if you can find one. They were so in demand during the Spanish Civil War that they were literally worn out and used up.

Star Si-35

Notes: This was one of the many weapon employed in the experimental ground of the Spanish Civil War. It had an adjustable rate of automatic fire for wither 300 or 700 rounds per minute, done with a selector switch. The flip sights allow for the hopeful range of up to 1000 meters in the second position, but the standard battle sights are graduated from 50-500 meters (also a rather hopeful range). The magazines for the Si-35 are practically indestructible, being made of thick milled steel instead of simple stamped steel.

The Si-35 was not popular in Spain, though it was used in some small numbers. Prior to World War 2, versions were tested in France; most were chambered for 9mm Largo, but some were also chambered for 7.65mm Longue. Tests were also conducted by Star in 9mm Parabellum in hopes of more export sales, but the Si-35ís design was apparently not compatible with 9mm Parabellum, since grouping of the rounds fired proved to be too large. The 9mm Parabellum chambering also had a higher rate of fire; most Spanish generals considered ammunition usage wasteful, and some considered it downright dangerous when combined with the large groupings. These other chamberings were very rare in their time, and are even more so today.

The RU-35 was a version of the Si-35 which had only the reduced cyclic rate of fire. It was disliked even more than the Si-35. The RU-35 was tested by the US military in 1940, but rejected due to the low cyclic rate of fire and the fact that it was not chambered for the cartridge preferred by the US at the time for submachineguns, the .45 ACP. The TN-45 was similar in concept to the RU-35, but used only a cyclic rate of 700 rpm. Star tried to shop this design in 1941 to Germany, Great Britain, and the US, without success. The version offered in the US was chambered for the .38 Super cartridge, and had a lighter trigger pull.

Star Z-45

Notes: This predecessor of the Z-62 was an adaptation of the German MP-40, who sold the plans to the Spanish government in 1942. The Z-45 was used by Spain for some years and also by Portugal, but now is used only by some South American countries. The Z-45 uses a fluted barrel to ease extraction, necessary because of the supersonic 9mm Largo cartridge the Z-45 uses. It remains one of the few submachineguns to use that round.

Star Z-62/Z-63

Notes: This is sort of a transitional model between the Z-45 and Z-70. It looks almost identical to the Z-45, and was one of the first weapons made that included a feature to keep the weapon from accidentally firing if dropped or bumped. The feature that proved to be its downfall, however, was the trigger; it came in two parts, with the top half producing automatic fire and the lower half producing semiautomatic fire. This proved to be difficult to train people how to use properly, and it was common for shooters to produce the wrong type of shot. (Inexperienced shooters of the Z-62 should make a DIF: Dexterity roll; if they fail, they fire semiautomatic if they meant to fire automatic, or vice versa.)

Star Z-70/B

Notes: Standard Spanish submachinegun until replaced by the Z-84, the Z-70 can still be found in large numbers. The Z-70 has a hammer safety, which keeps the weapon from firing when dropped; this mechanism is also simpler than the safety of the Z-62. With this weapon, the Spanish standardized on the 9mm Parabellum round as their submachinegun round.

Star Z-84

Notes: Successor to the Z-62, the Z-84 is now the standard Spanish submachinegun. With this design, Star changed from the old-style of submachineguns, and changed to a modern telescoping-bolt design. In addition, the Z-84 marks a change from milled steel to steel stampings. The standard barrel for the weapon is 215mm, but a version with a 270mm barrel is available.

Twilight 2000 Notes: As this weapon was far simpler to build than Starís earlier submachineguns or many assault rifles, Spain continued its manufacture during and after the Twilight War.
