    You shure about those 90%. It seems a bit very high to me, though I'm not too much into WWI ground war.
    Also which MGs does this include? Just Maxim & Vickers? Which nation did use Maxim based MGs too(in WWI)?

    Snakeye :D

    I said...

    "It is estimated " its not sure a thing. I may be wrong on the number.

    AFAIK yes just the maxim, and the major users were England, Germany, France, America, Ottoman Empire (Turkey), Russia, and some others

    Ratus, your right it is Sustained Fire (SF) I think I used static because of something I'd read earlier in the thread. Mymmind is going. THe SF kit isn't issued to a sections GMPG but every company has an SF section in the weapons platoon. This section can put its, usually, 4 GMPG with full SF kit in the field and occasionally they'll also commendeer some section GMPGs and use with extra SF mounts either issued from 'above' or 'otherwise ' obtained ;)

    AFAIK a lot of the casualties were also caused by artillery.
