Hi all,

I found this image on Ebay. I know it is not WW2 equipment but.... :roll: Have anyone any information about this weapon?
I think it is a german 7.92mm MG 08 with a small shield on a special horse wagon. Perhaps for AA use :? 8O

"Flak MG" is not the right term, but the MG purpose is obvious.
I've seen similar shields on photo below.

"Special" wagon looks like modifieded field artillery item.

Other MG is beute French St. Etienne Mle 07.

Hi all,

I have a question about the MG08/15: Normally, the MG08-15 was fed by a 250-round fabric belt.
But, Does somebody know the capacity of this round drum?
