i thought it was a paratrooper/tankers version of a rifle - shorter in the barrel so that it reduces weight for the paras and space in the cabin for tankies. otherwise just a standard rifle with slightly reduced accuracy due to less stability and shorter barrel.

fairly recently the british takies have been given the SA80A2 Carbine and are 'quite chuffed' with it, it would seem

Today carbines are just shortened and lightened versions of the correspondent rifle, by the time of WW2, though, there were carbines designed from scratch without being a 'version' of another rifle. The M1 Carbine for example wasn't related in any way to the M1 Garand Rifle. Still the principle is the same: carbines are the attempt of packing more firepower than a pistol in less space than a rifle.

IMO, Firefight needs a couple more small-arms types:

WEAPON_AUTO_RIFLE which would combine the damage of a rifle, the range of an LMG and the burst capability of the SMG. It would be used to represent magazine fed LMGs like the Bren and the BAR, which don't enjoy the rate-of-fire of belt-fed bipod LMGs (although they should be more accurate).

WEAPON_AUTO_CARBINE which would combine the damage and range of a carbine with the burst capability of the SMG. This would be used to represent assault rifles like the MP 44.

Correction I tried another source

The M1909 was produced by the U.S. as the Benet-Mercie Machine Rifle (adopted in 1909) where they were used during the 1916 expedition to Mexico;
