German Grenadier Running in Greatcoat with MG 42, 1942-45

The Germany Army entered the War with the MG 34 as its main tactical machine gun. This lightweight weapon could be easily carried by one soldier but its intricate design presented problems in the field. A more durable replacement was found in the MG 42 and it provided several distinct advantages over its predecessor. The extensive use of stamped steel components meant that it could be assembled by less-skilled workers in half the time. The MG 42 could stay in the heat of battle longer as a lone soldier could change its barrel in less than 10 seconds. And it fired between 1,200-1,500 rounds per minute – considerably more than the American Browning M1919 or British Vickers, each only firing around 450-600 rounds per minute.
