Photo 34 MG (Maschinengewehr 34)
The MG 34 machine gun (Maschinengewehr 34) radical. Radical because he introduced the concept of multi-purpose machine senpan and also the use of a belt of ammunition for a weapon that belonged to light. Ammunition is usually provided in the form of a belt containing 50 calibre bullets at 7, 92mm. This can be so that the belt contains a maximum of 5 belt/250 bullets. As an option to use also tromol Saddle (saddle drum) which contains 75 of the same calibre bullet fruit
The machine gun crew of Germany in standby (feuerstellung). Maschinengewehr 34 machine gun is (34 MG). Note camouflage pattern on the stahlhelm unusual! In peacetime, the use of grasses, reeds etc for a means of camouflage should only be done after permission of the commanding officer of the unit. Melaburi helmet with soil, clay or wet sand is forbidden. But of course this does not apply in the field where everything possible is always open!

The term “Schützenloch für Maschinengewehr” (blast holes for machine guns), better known by the Landser as Maschinengewehrnest (the machine gun Nest). The optical lens of the MG-34 above looks nyempil between two stahlhelm worn by their crews. In Germany, the word “leichte Maschinengewehre” (light) or “a schwere” (heavy) put more emphasis on its role and not the size of his weapon because both equally use machine gun MG-34 7, 92mm. Leichte Schützengruppe (Lightweight Gun Group) equipped with one MG-34 equipped bipod and reserve one or two rifles, while a schwere Schützengruppe (heavy machine gun Group) still carries a machine gun with a bipod for the same, it’s just an extra provided with optical lenses, tripods, as well as a backup gun barrel to enable their crews to provide a sustainable long distance shots.
