BBA092 American B.A.R. Gunner
Although, strictly speaking, the B.A.R. (Browning Automatic Rifle) was not a machine gun it was employed mostly in the light machine gun role within American WW2 Infantry Squads. Each American infantry squad (usually 8-10 men) would always contain at least one soldier carrying the B.A.R. Both the M1 ‘Garand’ Rifle and B.A.R. used the same .30 cal. ammunition.
