Quote from: John Cook on 13 May 2021, 05:42:04 PMThe Glosters would've still had Vickers and Brens in Korea would they not. You can change a barrel on a Bren almost as quickly as you can change a magazine, and a Vickers could deliver sustained fire almost indefinitely. They wouldn't have lasted long if they'd been equipped with this weapon, which on reflection is, I think, a FN Minimi LMG, which is all the more reason for not mistreating it like this. LMGs are not intended to deliver sustained fire.

As for A13s crashing through building or Splashing through a river... well, one can assume that 'someone' had recce'd for cellar or had a plodge to check river bottom, first! lol.
