Literally translated to "storm troop", Sturmtruppen were heavily armed and armored assault soldiers used primarily in World War I by Germany to lead an attack on an enemy trench line. Oftentimes advancing under cover of poison gas, sturmtruppen used not only Mauser rifles, but MP-18 submachine guns, pistols, flamethrowers, and even clubs.
A sturmtruppe might carry eight to ten grenades, while the ordinary soldier had none.
