  1. Does anyone know please what are the differences between an infantry used MG08/15 and the version placed inside the German tanks of WWI? I have seen an 08/15 with trunions but assume this is for use in pillboxes/fortifications. Belgians used captured WWI MG08/15 in their forts and 'added' pieces to them. I am assuming for German WWI tank use there may be no butt stock, or different ammunition feeds or indeed different water cooling system etc etc. VMT for any help. Mark
  2. Understandably a bit of a neglected area. German mastery of both WWI & WWII MG use is well known, but the adaptions to the WWI MGs are interesting. Even today weapon platforms are 'added to' to extend their use or as an interim measure.
  3. Can the Moderator remove all the photobucket posts here please, I cannot edit them.
  4. Insignia not visible to me as I am not a uniform expert.
  5. Sorry CCJ, I am unaware of the unit type, but I know you will enjoy this one.
  6. I have lost a lot of my 'inter-war' MG imagery due to photobucket re-shaping. I will ask the moderator if I can clean up this thread but just to re-energise here are some fresh images. There were several modifications to both the MG08 and 08/15 and they can be of interest to any MG enthusiast. There are stand alone MG08 and 08/15 threads but to begin, here is an image of the standard WWI 08/15 configuration.
  7. Nice 'spiked' helmet gun team. Sorry for absence but now time to re-inject some life into this thread to compliment 'Grips of Death'. Happy New Year.
  8. Please forgive my absence due to work. Time to re-energise all MG threads. Please review as some retrospective wotrk has been done and again please let me know if you have spares. I hope the 08 and 08/15 threads are useful. Mark One of the best images.... of a Kaiser moustache
  9. Great view of the 08/15 accessories.
