Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Machine guns were a revolutionary and military advancement and were undoubtedly one of the deadliest weapons of the First World War. These machines were brutal, literally ripping anyone caught in their sights to threads. However, they were big and bulky, and usually overheated after only being used for a couple minutes, but if you needed to suppress a trench, or stop a charging army of soldiers, the machine gun was the right tool for the job.(Thompson, 2014) Rifle Pistol Machine Gun Unique Weapon Lee-Enfield(N/A, 2014) Mosin Nagant(N/A, 2014) Gewehr 98(N/A, 2014) Mauser C96(N/A, 2014) Maschingewehr 08(N/A, 2014) Flammenwerfer M.16(N/A, 2014) 37 mm Trench Gun M1915(N/A, 2014) 20 mm Lahti L-39(N/A, 2014) Vickers Machine Gun (N/A, 2014) Webely Revolver(N/A, 2014) Nagant M1895(N/A, 2014) Pistols Rifles were anything but new in the 20th century, however, the types of rifles that were in use at the time allowed a single soldier to fire off 5 or more rounds in just a minute. This new function is called bolt action and revolutionizedwar in the 20th century, enabling the soldier to be accurate and efficient at the same time. (Llewellyn, 2014) Madsen Machine Gun(N/A, 2014) Pistols in the 20th century varied from small, semi-automatic rifles to big, single shot revolvers and were very deadly at close range, but anything farther away than 50 or more yards and they became useless. These guns were hard to aim and were inaccurate, but that didnt stop soldiers from using them as a last line of defense next to the bayonet.(Southey, 2014) Machine Guns Rifles WWI Weapons Modern Firearms.
