The experience of WW2 made it obvious to the French that a modular GPMG was a far more sensible concept than the role specific MGs and LMGs used until 1940 and that the advances in firearms manufacturing provided an ideal opportunity to fully embrace the concept. The fruit of the project came in the shape of the AA52, a simple and sturdy GPMG that is still in service in a limited role to this day on land, sea and air (ANF1 version in 308).
Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
