The US already has three machine guns in FH, the M2 50 cal, the BAR, and the M1919 30 cal. But what about the water cooled 30 calliber M1917A1? The A1 version was developed following WWI, and saw action in both WWII and Korea, although their weight (93 lbs!) made them less successful as a squad weapon than its M1919 cousin. My thought is to make them as a stationary weapon, or as a halftrack deployed MG. Maybe even as an alternate to the M1919 on the Jeeps (1 in 6 with a M1917 on it). machine_gun.jpg

In the same vein, a Maxim for the Soviets would be sweet. I think I remember seeing renders for some sort of watercooled MG complete with water tank, although I can't remember which one exactly. Not too sure about an M1917 on a Jeep though... the M1917 was designed for long periods of sustained fire, which you really wouldn't be doing with such a mobile Jeep.

The Americans have already got the M1919. The Maxim and/or DkhM and the Vickers 0.303 need to be done first.

Desperatley need this for the planes for accuracy's sake. MG15.jpg and on the back of a JU-88 JU88_4.gif DSHK for the Russians. I wanna see this on the IS2:naughty: . Image116.gif

Yeah, we do need more of the MGs. here is an interesting thought...why don't we have the that German version of the Bren? It was a rather common lmg. I think the designation was ZB-something....

M1917, not M1919.
