webmaster's picture

During World War 2, the British designed a machine gun that could be easily built by anyone with access to a basic metal shop. The result was the Sten gun, which was produced in relatively large numbers in occupied Europe. Similarly, the Liberator could be easily mass produced and was intended to be used by the people of occupied countries. Both of these products worked on a massively distributed basis.
