The UMP (German: Universale Maschinenpistole, English: Universal Submachine Gun) is a submachine gun developed and manufactured by Heckler & Koch. The UMP is a blowback-operated, magazine-fed submachine gun firing from a closed bolt. As originally designed, the UMP is chambered for larger cartridges than other submachine guns like the MP5, to provide more stopping power against unarmored targets (with a slightly lower effective range) than the 9x19mm MP5 provides. A larger cartridge produces more recoil, and makes control more difficult in fully automatic firing. To mitigate this, the cyclic rate of fire was reduced 600 rounds/min for the UMP-45, which makes it one of the slower firing submachine guns on the market. There's also a version chambered for the rather standard 9x19mm Parabellum, known as the UMP-9. The UMP-45 is used by the Allied Night Elf Division soldiers, while the UMP-9 is used by the Joint Police Agency.
