The Mauser C96 is a German handgun featured in Medal of Honor: Airborne. The C96 Mauser was produced from 1896 to 1935. The C96 saw use during World War 1 and saw limited use in World War 2. It was nicknamed the "Broomhandle" due to it's wooden grip. Many variants of the C96 Mauser were made most notably the M712 "Schnellfeuer" which is featured in Airborne as a weapon upgrade.
On the screenshots of the early version of the game the C96 can be seen in the hands of the Germans. The weapon was planned to be in game and be possibly used, but it didn't make it in the final release of the game.
This weapon starts out as a semi-auto, ten-round handgun available for use in Medal of Honor: Airborne. It is a fairly good sidearm, though with lower damage than its counterpart, the M1911. However, it can be very powerful, on par with some submachine guns, when fully upgraded. The available upgrades are:
Rifle stock: decreases recoil.
20-round magazine: Increases magazine capacity.
712 Conversion Kit/Automatic fire adapter: Allows for a very fast automatic rate of fire.
It is selectable as a starting weapon in the mission Der Flakturm, but can also be found in Young Fools hidden in a destroyable safe in the tank factory's control room.
