Marine Heavy Weapons 1920's





A detachment of USMC heavy support weapons in action in the Banana Wars of the early 20th Century. The gem of the unit is a Browning .30 cal model 1917 water cooled heavy machinegun. This excellent weapon was used in every American conflict from World War One to the ealy days of the Vietnam War. Firing the powerful .30-06 Springfield round at 600 rounds per minute, this was a brutal force for an enemy to face.

Other support is being given by two Lewis Guns. This was a lighter weight machine gun that remained in American use from the First World War to World War Two. The Lewis Gun in American service also fired the .30-06 Springfield at a rate of 600 rounds per minute.

Also to be seen in the unit are the Browing Automatic Rifle (BAR), a Tommygun submachinegun, a Trench Gun shotgun, two Springield rifles and, in the hands of the Lieutenant, the famous 1911-A1 Colt .45 cal automatic pistol. These solid weapons gave the USMC excellent firepower support throughout the greatest wars of the 20th Century.

These are two old (bought and painted in the 1970's) figures, the mule is from Archive and the overloaded bearer is from citadel both sadly long out of production.

Banana Wars Marines-Heavy Weapons



These are some work in progress 28mm Pulp Figures US Marines. These well armed warriors add some heavy firepower to my unit of early 20th century Marines. A couple of riflemen, a trenchgun, a BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) and Tommygun will add additional punch to my squad. But the real firepower will come from the two Lewis Gun light machineguns and the heavy duty Browning .30 cal machinegun. I will post more shots as thes troops come on line.
