Ok, a lonnnnngggg time ago I posted some info about how the Bren guns ejects downwards, and the photos of Bren seem to show that this is what is happening ingame. I just wanted to ask if this is actually happening, or if I was imagining it?

:lol: And what would be the use? I'd rather die of a quick panzer shell in my chest than of being crushed on the ground and even having chances of very agonizing survival. Very very very agonizing...

Be interesting to see how the Bren performs in game; one of it's biggest drawbacks IRL was it's accuracy. LMG's are designed to fire in a cone, or spread, to do as much damage to as wide an area as possible. The Bren tended to fire where you pointed it, and although you could pick off individual enemy it wasn't much good for 'spray and pray' suppression.

Um........... Where in gods name did you get that info? the Bren gun as it's called was one of the best LightMachine guns you could get! The only thing better was a BAR-1918. The Bren was so good that the many nations copyed it's design like the fallowing:

Japan, China, Poland. Even the US at one point had a copy of the Bren gun although it's mag was loaded from the side not the top. IE in the Johnson LightMachine Gun. The Germans even stole them because they were so good you could not just give it up. IE much like what the Germans did on the Eastern Front with Russian SVT-40s, and US troops with STG-44s, and British with US Thomy guns.

Haven't shot any gun irl but in FH1 Bren was my favourite of the LMGs thanks to it's accuracy and deadly damage. You could snipe with that thing :nodding: . Then again I always did think Piat was the best AT weapon 'cause it had STYLE =p .

I got that info from the guys of the British Airborne who took Pegasus Bridge on the night before D-Day. In other words, the guys who used the bloody things. My Grandfather also used a Bren in NA. Now I wasn't dissing it per se, I was stating it didn't begave like most other LMG's, the primary function is suppression, NOT accuracy. That's what rifles are for. Of course it's a good gun, just not for laying down a spread base of fire. It was too accurate. Now go do some reading up on it.

EDIT

I'll do it for you.

QUOTE: The Bren had an effective range of around 600 yards when fired from a prone position with a supported bipod. Initial versions of the weapon were sometimes considered too accurate because the cone or pattern of fire was extremely concentrated, resulting in multiple hits on one or two enemies, with other enemy soldiers going untouched. More than a few soldiers expressed a preference for worn-out barrels in order to spread the cone of fire among several targets. Later versions of the Bren addressed this issue by providing a wider cone of fire. Source: Bren light machine gun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
