@kstdk,
you have an error in a caption of the starting post:
Pic #2 reads MG 131, but it is a pair of MG 17.

Christian M. Aguilar[/quote]

Here is another picture of apparently the same series of photographs from German propaganda as picture # 2 posted by Kurt (kstdk) on page 1 of this thread (see above):
MMG17Zwilling-BA.jpg
The caption in the Bundesarchiv's website reads:
"Frankreich.- Soldaten der Luftwaffe in Stellung mit Flak aus zwei MG 34, Soldat mit Finger in den Himmel zeigend; Lw Kdo West"

This is definitely a gun of the MG 151 family which was manufactured both 15 mm as well as 20 mm. From the size of the feed mechanism I would give this a 90 % chance of being the 15 MM version.
