I would suggest using either the German 2-6(f) that came in PB (I think it was PB) or use a Hungarian 2-7. While having a good cyclic rate, up there with the MG 34 or MG 42, it used 75 round saddle drum magazines rather than a belt. As far as I know (so don't quote me on that) the barrel could not be changed quickly. Overall I feel that it was not as capable of sustained fire as the MG 34/42, closer to a DP-28 or Lewis, so I rate the FP as 2. It's high cyclic rate for short bursts means I judge it having a bit more 'reach', so I would be more inclined to a range of 7 rather than 6. The B11 for both is another matter. LW troops would have been above average in technical ability but at least for the first year were regarded as poor and skittish, so fumbling might be a
Overall a Hungarian 2-7 would be best, you can always SSR the B# to be B12, depending upon how you read an action.
The whole FP and range for MGs is so arbitrary and fuzzy that the best I can do is give a personal judgement rather than the more solid values I could give for an AFV.
I know, I know, but at least I got a copy of High Ground recentlyMore a question of can you really afford not to. In time when you have a bit more dosh to spare, of course.
Yes, that's it and I just checked and the 2-6(f) LMG indeed are in Pegasus Bridge. They were mainly there for MG that are scrounged from French built stuff in German usage. Sorry for not spelling it out, I'm afraid I got too used to ASL acronyms and assume everybody else has.ah got you, that's probably it
Thanks guys, still pretty doubtful to be honest if I'll ever get it though... and we should have PiF in stock for a while, so no worries, BFP will be here when you need us :-D
From vol. 10 (I think this was the first English one) onwards...Is the magazine printed in English now? I have been looking for other ASL magazines outside of Journals. This one seems like a nice one, but my French is not anywhere near what it was in high school/college and I definitely could not read a French language magazine now. Perhaps I should try re-learning the language and truly understanding it this time around!
