Which half, taking pictures an airplane down with a machine gun, hanging from the tripod or be soldier?
Reply to all elements is sure.
After I served in FDF the 12,7mm heavy MG we used on a tripod for AA functions, (which btw is roughly the identical caliber as Browning M2 .50 BMG machine gun) had slightly “flag” between the legs, which you had been speculated to fill with rocks or different heavy objects to provide it stability so you would really shoot the rattling beast. But it surely was instructed that if you’re in a rush, then one man jumps to sit down on the stated flag to have the load wanted to shoot the gun.. In any other case the huge recoil would simply make it not possible to shoot correctly.
