Cupola AA machine gun

Post by st. oswald » 01 Jun 2009 22:46

Does anyone know if a dedicated mg was carried for the cupola aa mg or was the coaxial or bow mg used?

Also, were the coaxial and bow mg 34's the same guns that the infantry used, with just the addition of armoured barrel jacket (that didn't have vent holes)?

I saw an earlier post that had some good cupola aa mg pics

That is shown by the front bipod mount-it was not permanantly affixed,but was in a box inside the AFV,containing a 'ground kit' that was used when the gun was dismounted.They also have a different booster shroud.I have seen the bag used to catch used shells before,but not as an ammo bag for belts.An interesting picture! Thanks. ---bil

No cupola on the Sd.Kfz. 221, but rarely seen with AA MG pintle (Source eBay.de).
