800px-Breda 30

A real-life Breda Modello 30.

Bresciana in 1930. It was in service with the Royal Italian army until 1945. It fired the 6.5x52mm Mannlicher-Carcano cartridge from an attached box magazine that fitted 20 rounds from stripper clips at a rate of around 500 rounds per minute. It had an effective range of 800 meters and a maximum range that reached up to 3000 meters.

Battlefield 1942Edit

The Breda Modello 30 is a weapon introduced in the Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome expansion, issued to the Royal Italian Army Assault kit. Featuring high power, a medium rate of fire, low recoil and low accuracy, it comes equipped with a 20-round magazine. It is an effective mid-range weapon, though it is rather bested by a rifle at long range, or a submachine gun in close quarters. Although it suffers from poor accuracy in long range combat, going prone will significantly increase accuracy and reduce recoil, so if a player fires in bursts, it can be used in a long range engagement to some effect.

It uses the same projectile as the Bar M1918, which makes the weapons nearly equal. However, since the Breda Modello 30 has a slightly longer reload, and the damage drops gradually after 50 meters up to 100 meters where it does 0.5x damage, it is inferior, especially in long range engagements.



  • The Breda Modello 30 has the same reload animation as the MP18 and Sten SMG.
  • The in game model of the gun is not accurate, the magazine should be on the right side, while in the game it is on the left.
