Stats / Data
The MG 34 (Maschinengewehr 34) is a recoil-operated air-cooled machine gun that fires from an open bolt. MG34 is designed by Heinrich Vollmer of Mauser, with reference to Rheinmetall's MG30. MG34 was first tested in 1929, introduced in 1934. MG34 is generally considered as the world's first General Purpose MG, it was mass produced and issued to military service of the Third Reich in 1936 after the Nazi party's repudiation of the Versailles Treaty.
MG34 was designed to be relatively light weight for single personal operation, the light support configuration weights 12.1kg unloaded. It has a notable fast cyclic rate of fire of around 850 rounds per minute, anti-aircraft/coaxial variants have faster rates of fire. MG34 is fed by a reusable non-disintegrating 50 round ammunition belt from the left side of the gun, the belt can be chained to any length needed in increments of 50 units, designed to hold the 7.92x57mm Mauser cartridge which the gun chambers. Other than stationary belt feeding, MG34 also have access to a 50-round Gurttrommel or a 75-round Patronentrommel 34 drum magazines that can feed the weapon.
Featuring a quick change barrel, an overheated barrel of the MG34 can be quickly removed and changed by the weapon's crew. Buttstock of MG34 can also be removed to be used in close quarter space or in vehicles. Another notable feature on the MG34 would be the double crescent trigger, which provided select fire capability without the need for a fire mode selector switch. Squeezing the upper half of the trigger will fire a semi-automatic shot, while holding the lower half produces fully automatic fire. This feature was considerably innovative for it's era, though it did complicate the manufacturing process.
Different equipment/attachments are issued to different variants of MG34, infantry weapon MG34 have a standard iron sight, rear sight is a notched 'V' sight mounted and a single blade at the front. The sight came calibrated for ranges between 200 to 2,000m in 100m increments, marking the effective range of MG34 to be up to 2000 metres. An anti-aircraft sight or telescopic sights can also be issued to MG34 to improve the effective firing range. Bipod units are integrated into the design and it can also be fitted on tripods for a fixed positional firing.
Other than infantry light support weapon, anti-aircraft and stationary firing roles, MG34 is often found on top or as coaxial machine guns of WW2 German armor vehicles. MG34 was noted for being used as a remote controlled machine gun on the Jagdpanzer 38 'Hetzer', as the first of it's kind, able to traverse 360° while removing the need for the operators to expose themselves, however the reloading process still requires operator to change the 50-rounds drum magazine manually.
MG34 was known for it's complex and relatively expensive manufacturing process, the immediate successor would be the cheaper and simpler MG42, though MG42 only served as a supplement weaponry to the MG34 in the infantry units. Several design features of MG42 makes it unsuitable for vehicle usage, mechanized units of the Third Reich continued to use MG34. Together with MG42, MG34 served Germany until the end of the war.
