169 pages, illustrated, diagrams, wrappers, very good. "This manual supersedes FM 23-60, 25 September 1940, including C1, 8 December 1941; C2, 24 October 1942; C3 10 August 1943; and FM 23-65, 10 April 1940, including C1, 4 March 1942; C2, 9 August 1943." From Wikipedia: "The M2 Machine Gun, Browning .50 Caliber Machine Gun, is a heavy machine gun designed towards the end of World War I by John Browning. It is very similar in design to Browning's earlier M1919 Browning machine gun, which was chambered for the .30-06 cartridge. The M2 uses the larger and more powerful .50 BMG cartridge, which was named for the gun itself (BMG standing for Browning Machine Gun). The M2 has been referred to as "Ma Deuce", or "the fifty" in reference to its caliber. The design has had many specific designations; the official designation for the current infantry type is Browning Machine Gun, Cal. .50, M2, HB, Flexible. It is effective against infantry, unarmored or lightly armored vehicles and boats, light fortifications and low-flying aircraft. The Browning .50 caliber machine gun has been used extensively as a vehicle weapon and for aircraft armament by the United States from the 1920s to the present. It was heavily used during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and during operations in Iraq and Afghanistan in the 2000s. It is the primary heavy machine gun of NATO countries, and has been used by many other countries. The M2 has been in use longer than any other small arm in U. S. Inventory except the .45 ACP M1911 pistol, also designed by John Browning." ; 169 pages. N° de réf. du libraire 27465
