Sweeping Fire from the HMG Section

A full section of Vickers HMG's lays down a sweeping wall of bullets into the advancing Germans in August 1914.

Taking advantage of what ever cover is available, the machine gun teams give valuable assistance to the out numbered BEF.

The water-cooled .303 calibre Vickers could fire 500 rounds a minute. Using traversing fire a section of HMG's could cut down advancing infantry with ease.
