The MP3008 was a near exact copy of the British STEN gun and served the same purpose: a cheap, easy to manufacture firearm that provided a quick upgrade in firepower over rifles and pistols.
The Volksmaschinenpistole was one of several “last ditch” weapons made in German in the final days of the Third Reich with approximately only 10,000 ever produced.
