Why on earth are the Germans in "Hogan's Heroes" carrying Thomson SMGs??

Yeah. In the first season (only season I've seen so far) the German guards occasionally carry around Thomson SMGs instead of the MP-40. Granted, some of them do have MP-40s, but since when did Germans use Tommyies?

And here, as I sit here, watching Hogan's Heros, I see Schultz carrying a Tommy. Doesn't he usually have a K98? But boy, you would have thought someone would have caught that obvious flaw in the show.

shouldn't you be surfing the web for pron instead of looking at "Schultze's gun"?

meh. Pron is overrated. Besides, Hogan's Hero's is far more entertaining. I just noticed that discrepancy and thought I'd inform all the Foosters.

Let it go. It's a 1960s sitcom.

The show wasn't designed to hold up to the rigorous, scathing eye of someone who plays a lot of video games with guns in them.

Hogan's Heroes and the Rat Patrol. Those were the days of great TV shows. Then came the Love Boat and Fantasy Island, it's been all downhill.

Reality TV is the DQ swirl on the turd that is network television. But as bad as network television is, there are programs such as FRONTLINE at the other end of the spectrum. That said, I still like 60 Minutes.

What about someone who was never real into games, but spent his youth studying the hell out of small arms?

But seriously, gotta give em a break. It's just a dumb show. It reminds me of when I was mad watching star trek because they were using 1921 Thompsons and 1911's, and the bolts were motionless, and the hammers stayed forward, but somehow the guns fired magically, with no empties ejected. Same thing there. Just a dumb show with no particular concern for accuracy representing the guns.

Them's fight'n words where I come from stranger.

Hogan's Heroes was a great show.

Still, I'm surprised I never noticed the Thompsons, or if I did, I neglected to make a real note of it.

The Germans intercepted a vast number of Lend Lease shipments intended for the Russians. Really

Actually, some German troops did use captured Thompsons. Some American soldiers in Afghanistan have used AK-47s and etc. in a pinch. If it shoots bullets its a valuable tool.

But the time period that Hogan's Hero's was set in was before D-day. Besides, when the Germans did use Thompsons, they would generally be on the front line, not in prison camps.
