Regarding the Browing 12,7mm on page 4:

The Dutch bought in 1925 the first 24 machineguns as the .50 Armstrong Whitworth-Colt. So The firm Armstrong Whitworth made these under Colt licence and sold them to the Dutch navy to be placed on ships for the Dutch East-Indies but also for the Homeland navy. As more ships were build, every time additional MG were bought. At the beginning of the thirties approx 80 had been bought. In the Dutch Antilles some were also used on land. Starting of 1933 the representative of Armstrong Whitworth in the Netherlands, the Nederlandsch-Engelsche Technische Handel Maaschappij, told that Armstrong was not allowed (by Colt) to use the licence anymore because of the low salesnumbers (and the Dutch were the biggest customer by that). The FN firm in Belgium however got the licence and in april 1934 the Dutch placed the first order of 8 MG's. In total there were 292 of these MG's in active duty in may 1940. Source is "Nederlandse Vuurwapens, Marine, mariniers en MLD" by G. de Vries and B. Martens ISBN 90-6707-448-9

Hi all,

A 7.92mm MG08 on AA mount, I think.
You can see the butt of the gun. I suppose it would be a standard equipment of anti-aircraft kit, no?? The same that metal ring of my previous image, no??

Does anybody know the capability of the ammunition drum?

While it is clearly Luger on the second picture, I can't say what is the gun on the first one.
