On its common bipod it used to be a gentle computing device gun, perfect for infantry attacks; on a tripod it will probably function a sustained-fire medium computer gun. in the course of international battle II, the MG 34 was once outmoded via a brand new GPMG - the MG forty two. extra effective to fabricate and extra strong, it had a blistering 1,200rpm fee of fireplace. Nicknamed ‘Hitler's buzzsaw' through Allied troops, it was once arguably the best all-round GPMG ever produced, and along the MG 34 it inflicted heavy casualties. that includes particularly commissioned full-colour art and drawing upon quite a few technical manuals and first-hand money owed, this examine explores the technological improvement, assorted roles and lasting impact of the progressive MG 34 and MG forty two laptop weapons and their postwar successors.
