Gr8 video..thanks Shiv ....However looks like the video is incomplete , can you post the full version ?
at around the 1 min mark the pathetic bren gun is being used...wtf...cant get more obsolete than tha...
anonymous@10:30That is not a Bren.Its the 'converted'7.62mm 1B LMG.Yes, its an old design weapon and there are plenty of more 'jazzy looking' weapons out there.Still its not pathetic,its a robust and reliable design.A skilled operator can give it a decent and controlled rate of fire.Its still relevant on sentry and limited perimeter defence.
Last anyony...It is a 'converted' bren. Period.Have you ever fired a machine gun with limited ammo? (i.e. not belt fed?)...apparently not.
Anon, 6:43. We are talking about the Light MG 1-B.I am not a soldier but and i have fired one.It takes seconds to flip the TOP load mag,slip another,cock and again fire.Its barrels can also be changed quickly.Off course a belt fed MG has more rounds.But once in a while you also have to flip the top cover,align a belt,close the cover,cock and fire.Takes a bit longer than changing a Mag.In any case the point is that the gun is neither pathetic nor useless.As i have said Its very good for sentry and perimeter defence in a naval ship, say against small sized intruders,boats etc. In real life one does not spray a whole lot of bullets in long long bursts .Engagements are a bit more disciplined and controlled.Its not as if the 1B LMG is the prime air defence weapon of a naval ship. BUT as shown in the Naval Air Defence exercise being shown EVERY available weapon from the higher to the lowest calibre is used in unison against a close in aerial threat.BTW there are other such LMGs. http://world.guns.ru/machine/mg68-e.htm
last anon...gr8..u take the bren..ill take the FN-MAG...good luck with that..
