MG42 Ammunition Types on Panzers

Postby harrison987 » Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:03 pm


On a typical 50 150, and 250 round belt many tracers were there, compared to the standard round? Any of the light armour AP rounds (which were quite common) installed?

Interesting Question. Also Welcome to the site. As both MG34's and MG42's used the same ammo belts etc the answer should be the same. I believe that the Panzer's used MG34's.
Answer don't know but when I get to work on Monday I'll look in the Tiger manual that John translated and see if the answer is in it on Tiger Tanks. My guess is that it could and should be the same.
Anyone else have thoughts on this one??
