  1. Maybe the first to be used in combat. We had the B.A.R. sitting in warehouses during WWI. It was never sent to the troops in Europe for fear that the Germans would capture it and copy its design. I think I saw that on the History Channel many years ago. I could be mistaken.

  2. it makes sense to deploy with gunner/ammo bearer seeing that there was a lack of numbers produced. the Russians did that a lot with their weapons due to lack of resources, even riflemen were deployed like that in WWII.

  3. Actually The First Official Rifle was the STG 44 because This gun was A Mini Machinegun and the Bar was an Lmg light machine gun

    Hisotrian already voted for the Stg and it got its title a few years ago

  4. if that is the case than Chauchat is not a machine gun, its an assault rifle. it has selective fire between single shot and full automatic. there is no winning this since there have been assault rifle designs back then for years and the stg was the most successful of its time.

  5. I wouldn't mind to have this as a weapon on the battlefield? Seems alot better than running around with a musket and a revolver? That's what they did during the cival war?

  6. Simple History : Fedorov Avtomat has only single magazine which was the only way to reload its 25 rounds by using 5 stripper clips

    Meanwhile, the reload animation in Battlefield 1, Call Of Duty WW2 and Other Games : Changing magazines in an AK-style manner

  7. △ 6.5×50SR Full Auto  1913 Russia
    ○ 7.92 kurz Full Auto  1938 German
    ◎ 7.62×39mm Full Auto 1944 Soviet

    ✕ 5.56×45mm Full Auto 1980 USA
