The M2 machine gun or Browning .50 caliber machine gun is a heavy machine gun designed toward the end of World War I by John Browning. Its design is similar to Browning's earlier M1919 Browning machine gun, which was chambered for the .30-06 cartridge. 10,000 Rounds in 27 Minutes: Why The Other videos you might like: This is America's E-6 Mercury ► 🤍youtu.be/ZZRH-k4TUuQ Why America's Enemies Feared the P-47 ► 🤍youtu.be/bYssexVvggA 10 Reasons the F-35 ► 🤍youtu.be/UGeoN8Xo3Kw 🔔 SUBSCRIBE TO US ► 🤍🤍youtube.com/c/USMilitaryNewsMN?sub_confirmation=1 Thank You
It ain't yo deuce. It's Ma deuce.
Since 1933 and still going strong. If it's not broken, don't fix it.
My favorite gun
There's a line from the movie 'Lord of War' that I really like, and it's when the Interpol Agent Valentine is talking to the main character Yuri, who is an illegal arms dealer selling weapons in African warzones, about his job. He says to Yuri,
"You get rich by giving the poorest people on the planet the means to continue killing each other. Do you know why I do?
I mean there are more prestigious assignments. Keeping track of nuclear arsenals. You'd think that more critical to world security, but it's not. No, nine out of ten war victims today are killed with assault rifles and small arms like yours. Those nuclear missiles, they sit in their silos. Your AK-47? That is the real weapon of mass destruction."
I wouldn't say the m2 is the mother of all machines guns, the maxim gun must absolutely come before the m2.
I prefer the vickers because of it being water cooled
Writing a sci-fi story about a war involving humanity far in the future (2300s-2400s). I just got done writing a chapter where one of the characters is manning a M2. I've included it in my universe because I honestly can't imagine if we choose to continue to use firearms by then (as my humanity has), we'll still be using some variation of the M2.
123, 123, 123
The "Em one ninety-one seven ay one"? WTF?
Anyone know this weapon is powerful enough to stop 30-50 feral hogs?
The things people have come up with to destroy each other... It would be nice if humanity could get to the point of shooting just for fun, or as a way to reflect on the insane past.
"Why M2 was such a beast..." ? Laughs in MG42 rounds...
Dislike for not referring to the one and only god as JOHN MOSES BROWNING this is a sin
