Romanian Infantry Weapons

Romanian field officers were armed with either a Steyr or Beretta pistol. Some NCOs were armed with either Italian Beretta or Romanian built Orlita sub-machine guns. Infantry units were armed with Czechoslovakian ZB-24 rifles and ZB-30 light machine guns. Machine gun companies were armed with Czechoslovakian built ZB-53s and old Austrian Schwartzlose Heavy machine guns. The Romanian army adopted French designed mortars with 60mm and 81mm weapons. Larger 120mm mortars were built by Resita and copied a Soviet design.
