Machine-Gun Platoon (FJ) GE764
Machine-gun Platoon (GE764)
with two Machine-gun sections, Fallschirmjäger.
Like the small arms of the average Fallschirmjäger the weapons of the support teams are also dropped in canisters to be collected on the drop zone before assembling for battle.
The sMG-34 or sMG-42 sustained fire machine-guns are collected and mounted on a variable lightweight tripod.
The Fallschirmjäger machine-gunners provided heavy fire support for ground operations and were initially armed with the sMG-34. In 1942 the Fallschirmjäger were the first troops to get the new MG-42, including in its sustained fire mode as the sMG-42.
The Fallschirmjägerbrigade Ramcke at El Alamein had been recently re-equipped in France before arriving in Africa and were equipped with the MG-42.
