The M1917 Browning machine gun is an American heavy machine gun.

DescriptionEdit

The M1917 Browning machine gun first debuted in limited service in the later days of World War I and maintained its status as the standard heavy machine for American forces in World War II. The weapon's bulk and heavy weight limited its use mostly to static defense role, but its reliability and sustained-fire capability were well valued by the soldiers. Various derivatives were developed, including the air-cooled M1919 Browning machine gun for vehicular mounts, and the Chinese Type 30 machine gun.

The M1917 is usually found as a stationary weapon in Battlegroup42. Tripod-mounted versions can also be spawned by M3 Half-track.
