The MG42 has always impressed me with it's 1200 + rds per minute.
Buzz saw is an apt description.

Gunny narrates it.

That is correct...MG barrel could be hot swapped...and left to cool while another was swapped in.

Cyclic rate was so quick a barrel would almost melt or start cooking off rounds...




The US made M60 owes some of it's features to the MG42...
