DD311 .30 cal. Machine Gun Team
Decked-out in the Olive Green M1943 field jacket these newest ‘Dogfaces’ come in a range of useful battlefield poses reflecting the reality of street fighting in Nazi Germany in the closing months of WW2.
The .30 cal. machine gun was usually not part of the regular rifle platoon weapons list… They were attached to battalions and companies who would then supply them to platoons whenever or wherever it was deemed necessary.
This 2-man team would provide a volume of suppressing fire that would allow the riflemen to position themselves best for an attack on the enemy.
