Re: how to make light mortars usable

Another thing may be to actually put them in proper rifleman squad, it even says that these were meant to travel with other infantrymen as a platoon.

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

Also, here's a quote about the Vickers machinegun at a range of 2000 yards. A magnificent view of the German trench was obtained at a range of 2000 yards. The guns were disposed for barrage.Many factors in barrage work which are now common knowledge had not been learned or considered. Capetian Huchi...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

Now a Vickers only 1/3 makes it? What do you mean by that? ammo on target compared with a MG42. I said two pages ago that while a Vickers (and generally water-cooled) HMG can reach 2000 m range in direct fire(doubtful), the effect on target would be negligible. I provided you info from a respectabl...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

no. MGs fire up to 3000 m in HMG configuration and 2000 in LMG configuration. Vickers water-cooled for example can send teoretically 1/3 of ammo to 2000 m as HMG which is comparable with MG34/42 LMG as range but not as rof. As for wheeled Soviet types, the videos I posted previously are pretty much...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

No one is arguing that the German MG-42 is capable of firing at a 2+km range, however, as pointed out by many, so are most other GPMG's used in game. All countries had bullets specifically designed for machinegun fire and I can't see enough of a difference between the 8mm mauser and the 30-06/7.62mm...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

etc. Turns out I've been looking at the wrong Soviet machine-gun. However I can't see the scope on the pics? I've also heard anecdotal evidence that, although not standard, US and Canadian infantrymen would wield/rivet scopes on their Browning's. EDIT: Turns out the tripod MG/08, which is in game, ...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

M2 Browning is a different league, I mentioned it before as best of its caliber, M1919 is not in use in NATO countries anymore and wasn't produced after 1945. SG-43 is just from older stocks but it was replaced with General Purpose MG PKT while M3, an adaptation of MG43 was used in NATO as GPMG So ...

Re: MG-42 Range discrepancy

best ww2 MG which was kept in service in an improved version up to present days? M2 brownings, M1919's, hell even SG-43's are still fairly common in the modern battlefield. I was going to say if the MG-42 had a specialised optic to allow for long range curtain fire, but it seems the MG-34/42 tripod...
