The Browning M2HB .50cal was undoubtedly one of the best HMGs of World War II. It is still used today. It was renowned for its penetration capacity, as its heavy bullets could go right through the armour of half-tracks, armoured cars and even some light tanks.
Its weight made it very stable allowing accurate bursts of fire. A 20kg tripod was required for the 'ground' type, but also came mounted on vehicles in twin or quad versions. The latter weighed more than 1,000kg and was normally mounted on half-tracks.

These new Warlords games metal miniatures of US Airborne from later 1944-45 are excellent reproductions of the new Airborne uniforms following the Normandy landing. The figures are accurately scaled to 28mm and free of flash or mold lines. They were a joy to paint after spray priming. I look forward to completing a "Market Garden" force of US Airborne using these figures.
