Weapon Background[edit]

The STEN (or Sten gun) was a family of British submachine guns chambered in 9×19mm and used extensively by British and Commonwealth forces throughout World War II and the Korean War. STEN is an acronym, from the names of the weapon's chief designers, Major Reginald V. Shepherd and Harold Turpin, and EN for Enfield. Over four million Stens in various versions were made in the 1940s. They were notable for having a simple design and very low production cost making them effective insurgency weapons for resistance groups.

The Mark II was the most common variant, with two million units produced. It was a much rougher weapon than the Mk I. The flash eliminator and the folding handle (the grip) of the Mk I were eliminated. A removable barrel was now provided which projected 3 inches (76 mm) beyond the barrel sleeve. Also, a special catch allowed the magazine to be slid partly out of the magazine housing and the housing rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise (from the operator's perspective), together covering the ejection opening and allowing the weapon and magazine both to lie flat on its side.[1]

Design

A short T-doll around 130-140cm of body height when compared to the weapon, Sten have golden colour pupils and medium length blonde hair tightened in twin ponies.

As the artist revealed on his/her weibo posts, originally Sten's costume concept design was similar to Little Red Riding Hood, as adviced by SMG Beretta Model 38's artist ALLENES suggested "Give her a little red hat", by a red hat ALLENES meant a red beret hat though.[2]

When thought about the weapon was meant to be a cheap alternative due to lack of funding, the second draft Sten was given a plain grey dress, similar to Cinderella's.[3]

Finally 真名 settled with a feminized version of the traditional English working class outfit of that era, suspension belt skirt, red jacket, beret and a white shirt.

Trivia

  • Due to the poor build quality, there are frequent reports of Sten misfiring when dropped on the group.
    • As a reference to a joke told by Allied troops, one of the official 4Coma of Girls Frontline drawn by AC-130 depict that RF Lee-Enfield threw Sten's weapon like a grenade at a group of enemy patrols to drive them away.
    • Sten gained its notoriety which causes accidental discharging if the operator dropped the gun and became dangerous when loaded. It should be noted where Canadian Soldier during the war was injured or the worse, killed even before entering the battlefield although the report of operator death because of accidental discharging on Sten is questionable.[4]
    • The magazine of Sten itself was rather fragile; the magazine lip could easily bent which prevent proper feeding on the ammo. Seasoned operator would fill the magazine with 28-30 rounds instead of maximum 32 round for its reliability.[5]
    • Sten is ill-suited for operation during winter, as the component itself is very sensitive due the effect of manufacturing cost which could lead to freezing and malfunction.
  • Sten Mk. II also used by Jozef Gabčík, the leader of Czechoslovakian partisan during the attempt of Reinhard Heydrich Assassination. Which unfortunately, missed on mark even in point blank range. Therefore, Jan Kubiš proceed to toss the grenade at Heydrich Car, severely injured him which pronounced dead several day later. Both Gabčík and Kubiš was captured and later executed.
    • Her skill, hand grenade was a tribute for Jozef Gabčík and Jan Kubiš action during the war.
  • Captured Sten Mk. II was redesigned by German Designer, called MP.3008(or Gerät Neumünster) in mid WWII after Germany power began to collapse. MP.3008 shared a same receiver with Sten, but changed the magazine feeding to vertical over the original it was made. The MP.3008 itself also used by Fallschirmjäger(German Paratrooper) and Volksturm(People's Storm of German) because of its reliability and cheaper maintenance cost than its counterparts, MP 40.[6]
    • Another exact copy of Sten Mk.II by Mauser, called Gerät Potsdam was planned to be manufactured for 100.000 units although in reality there's only 28.000 units were manufactured.[7]
  • Sten will transformed as Sten Mk.II(S) after Digi-Mind Upgrade where the silencer is attached. The abbreviation of 'S' itself stands for "Special purpose" instead of "Silenced". German captured several Sten Mk.II(S) and designated it as MP751(e).
    • Mainly used by British SOE in Western Front at 1943, it still used in every conflict of the world until the adoption of MP5S in 1980.
    • Also, it was used by US MAC-V SOG and Australian SAS during Vietnam War.
