The Blitzer Bug is a submachine gun made in Baalikpan it fires the .45 APC cartridge and uses twenty round magazines the same as the Thompson machine guns brought through the storm. Described more fully by Taylor Anderson on his Former author's website "as an M-3 'Grease Gun' with wooden stock with thumb hole." It is the first fully automatic weapon in the Allied inventory being locally made in Baalkpan. Introduced during Torpedo Day in Firestorm. Used in the battle at Lake Flynn by Fifth Division under Captain Saachik and by nurse Pam Cross with the Corps of Discovery in Storm Surge. Pam Cross uses her Bitizer Bug again in Deadly Shores. They are used to arm the PB-1B 'Nancies' backseaters in Deadly Shores.

A modified version with larger magazine arms the P-1 Mosquito Hawks mounted in the wheel pants. The gun was introduced during Torpedo Day in Firestorm and saw its fist action in Storm Surge. It is mentioned in the books following, and was introduced to observers in the East as anti-Grik Bird protection besides it's ground force and P-1 use.
