History Edit

The WI Type 1 was manufactued by Nazi Germany since 1939, modeled after the IJA Type 99. The Type 1 rifle was used by the Wehrmacht in the Invasion of Poland, but was not used commonly anywhere else. The Reich Ministry for Supply cancelled all of the shipments of the WI Type 1 to frontline troops on October 1, 1939, and the WI Type 2 rifle was instituted.
