In the expanded version of the book we will get acquainted with the French machine guns and learn about unusual modifications of the German machine gun MG-34.
The machine gun is a group of small automatic firearms designed to be hit by bullets of various ground, surface and air targets.
The machine gun (in its modern meaning) first appeared at the end of the XIX century by the efforts of Hiram Maxim. Already the first experience of its application showed the high efficiency of this type of weapon. But the real starry hour of the machine gun was the First World War.
The machine gun reigned over the battlefields of that time. Machine guns began to be installed on tanks, aircraft, and warships. Most of the machine guns of that time had a decent weight; they were installed on special machines or turrets.
In this book, we will consider only a few machine gun models.
