Weapon Background[edit]

After the success story of MP5, Heckler & Koch continued to develop selective firing close quarter combat SMGs, one of the development outcome and the official successor to MP5 is the UMP (Universale Maschinenpistole) series. UMP SMGs are selective fire, recoil operated and fires from a closed bolt, featuring three main variants which are designed to fire 9x19mm Parabellum, .45 ACP and .40 S&W. Compared to the older MP5 model, UMP was advertised to be more reliable, more modern and lower cost, other common features of the UMP SMGs are Picatinny rails placements (Along the top of the gun, both sides and bottom of the barrel) and a foldable buttstock.

UMP40 is the variant that chamber the .40 S&W cartridge, like the other two variants, UMP40 also features a 2-round burst fire mode, together with semi-automatic and fully automatic. Feeds on a 30-round detachable straight magazine, the weapon is able to reach a fire rate of 650 rounds per minute, reaching a muzzle velocity of 320m/s, covering up to 100 metres of effective range. Noted that UMP have their rate of fire reduced in order to compensate for the recoil generated from firing large pistol cartridge, making UMP series one of the slowest firing SMGs on the market.

UMP SMGs were also advertised to be compact and light weight, UMP40 variant have a total length of 450mm with the stock folded (690mm unfolded), it also weights only 2.3kg when unloaded thanks to the polymer made body frame.[1]

After some FBI agent casualties during the 1986 Miami shoot out, the bureau was on the look out for a better alternative munition type than the servicing 9mm Parabellum, ideally of a bigger calibre but with a manageable level of recoil. .40 S&W was the chosen in the end with it's potential energy advantage over 9mm Parabellum and a more manageable recoil than the 10mm Auto cartridge of Bren Ten. Gaining favour and entered service with the bureau also gave it some popularity among other law enforcement units.[2]

Many other special policing units and investigative agencies all over the world have began to procure .40 S&W cartridge firearms into service, mostly in regions of Australia, Canada and the United States, sequentially boosted UMP40's sale. This also explains why unlike the other to UMPs, UMP40 is more commonly found enlisted to service with law enforcement units rather than military service.[1]

Design

SMG UMP45 and SMG UMP9's index number are 103 and 101 respectively, the number 40 also appeared on UMP9's character introduction. Based on these two facts many player would have guessed the 102 index slot was/will be UMP40, at last 40 joined the game with the announcement of the event Operation Deep Dive.

Though if one followed Renatus.Z's Twitter they may have noticed some posted artwork resemble a different looking character with a UMP SMG long before UMP40's release, later many believed this character was the early concept art of UMP40. All of such posts are now deleted on both the artist's Twitter and Pixiv.

.40 S&W Handgun cartridge is mostly used by law enforcement units, many character design features on UMP40 resembles that of a law enforcement personal or investigative field agent, such as the radio handset, smart business dress and the name card. UMP40's costume design differs greatly from UMP45, this suggests that UMP9 was made after the event of Deep Dive, produced with UMP45 as a template.

UMP40 was officially announced right before Deep Dive in July of 2017, she came fitted with voice lines, which suggests that her as a T-doll was programmed but never introduced into the game, or maybe never had an opportunity to be introduced. UMP40 chibi sprite retains a "Grenade Throwing" animation, which could potentially mean that her original skill was intended to be a grenade of some sort before changing to the current skill.

The default art of UMP40 does not have a fore-grip attached while her chibi sprite however does.

Trivia

  • Both UMP40 and UMP45 are of the same base doll model DSI-8, a message log suggest DSI-8 model dolls are manufactured by Sangvis Ferri, hinting both UMP40 and UMP45 are actually Sangvis Ferri in origin. However the UMP SMG they wield are branded by I.O.P. since 'branding' is a technology exclusive to 16LAB, the two UMP dolls could be a collaboration result between the two companies.
  • UMP40 is only weapon that primarily chambers the .40 S&W cartridge in the entire game, other weapons can be converted to fire or has variant capable of chambering .40 S&W.
