The 9mm Sten gun was developed by the British during WW2 as a cheap alternative to the more expensive Thompson SMG offered by the U.S. The Sten proved to be extremely reliable and, due to its fairly loose tolerances, could perform in poor conditions much more reliably than ostensibly better weapons.
Many of these weapons were produced in the Canadian firearms factory, Long Branch Arsenal.
Although the Sten gun has a lower range when compared to other common SMGs, it makes up for this deficiency with its slightly higher damage. This makes the Sten gun a good choice for close-quarters combat.
