If there is one weapon that the British infantryman trusts more than his 303, it is the Vickers machine gun. The modern Vickers is a symbol of British industry. Sturdy, with a tripod for accuracy and water-cooled for sustained fire, it is supremely reliable.
An example of this reliability took place in August 1916. When, during a twelve hour span ten Vickers machine-gun of the British 100th Company of the Machine Gun Corps fired continuously without a single failure or stoppage. Over a millions rounds were fired with the guns consuming one hundred replacement barrels and every drop of water in the immediate area.
The Vickers dominates the battlefield, warding off German attacks, and providing a tremendous base of fire for our men to advance under.
The Vickers HMG Teams in Great War
Rate of Fire: 6
ROF 3 when Pinned down or Moving
The Vickers machine-gun was capable of conduction indirect fire at ranges of up to 4500 yards (or 4100 metres). Important road junctions, trenches and forming up area were popular targets and cause much confusion amongst the enemy on the receiving end.
Machine-gun bombardments are a way of breaking up enemy advances across no-man’s land or to help keep the defenders’ heads down during attacks.
HMG teams can fire Bombardments. These are conducted in the same way as a normal Artillery Bombardment.
Since they have Anti-tank and Firepower ratings of ‘-’, they cannot harm Armoured vehicles or teams in Bulletproof Cover, although they can still Pin Down target platoons with a Hit in the Bombardment.

Mk V Tank (x2)
Includes two Mark V tanks
The Mark V was a more reliable improvement on the Mark IV and was used in the later battles of 1918. 'Female' tanks could unleash a torrent of machine-gun fire, while 'Male' tanks would smash the enemy trenches with high-explosive six-pounder fire.
