Dragon CAN20033C-D Series 6: German MG42 Heavy Machine Gun Team (1:35 Scale)
"If the tank succeeds, then victory follows."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"
The Maschinengewehr 1942, or MG42, had the fastest rate of fire of any weapon, clocked at an average of 1500 rounds per minute, and up to 1800 in full burst mode. The gun was sometimes called a "Spandau" after the suburb of Berlin where they were produced. During the war, over 400,000 were manufactured. Two man teams using this weapon were extremely dangerous and were oftentimes targeted first by enemy combatants intent on taking out this weapon.
