Vickers .303 Heavy Machine Gun This 40 lb. tripod-mounted gun is heavy to transport but extremely reliable. Lethal against personnel, able to stop a vehicle, penetrate light armor, or even penetrate through concrete. As with most heavy weapons its availability outside of the military is rare. Boys Antitank Rifle A bolt action rifle fed from a five-shot magazine and often nicknamed the "elephant gun" due to its size and large bore, i.e. .55in. With vicious recoil it is difficult to fire without being affixed to some form of support. “Buzzsaw” Based on the German MG 42, a 7.92x57mm Mauser general purpose machine gun, but with an upgraded firing mechanism and a newly developed alloy barrel immune to overheating. Together these modifications allow the gun to fire at its maximum 1200 rounds per minute assuming a sufficiently long ammunition belt. It is the distinctive sound caused by the high cyclic firing rate that gives this gun its nickname. Page 134
