Every paradrop was a disaster. They ultimately worked it out, but they were a cluster to begin with. All the confusion over the odd column got in the way and proved disorienting. Modern Paratroopers are back on fixed columns. They counted all the bullets and rectified the mistake. -- jimNope...an US airborne squad with an MMG would have fired everything it had and the enemy German squad would have felt every bit of the 11FP. Historically no nationality used the ift and when they fired everything the potential was there for the enemy to feel every bit of it.
In ASL terms that would be an 11FP shot that enemy would have know was more dangerous than just the 747 alone....every bullet had at least a chance.
The ift is an abacus vs the IIFT laptop...
