The Thompson submachine gun (also known as the "Tommy Gun", "Chicago Typewriter", or "Trench Broom") is a blowback-operated, air-cooled, magazine-fed selective-fire submachine gun, invented in 1918. The firearm became notorious during the Prohibition era, used as a signature weapon of various organized crime syndicates in the United States in the 1920s. It was a common sight in the media at the time, and was used by both law enforcement officers and criminals. The firearm was widely adopted by the U.S. military during World War II, and was used extensively by the Allied troops during the war. More than 1.5 million military Thompson submachine guns were produced during World War II.
