An alternative design for the squad light machine gun, MG42 was made during the latter half of World War II in Nazi Germany. Designed from the start to be low cost and easy to build, the MG42 is an air-cooled, belt fed, open bolt, recoil-operated machine gun with a barrel capable of quick changes in the middle of combat. After World War II, copies of the MG42 produced in the United States and would be an semi-common sight in Appalachia.
This light machine gun is a heavy gun that fires .308 rounds, a less common ammo type. The MG42 has a high rate of fire and high per-shot damage. However, its ammo type makes sustained use difficult without completely going through one's entire pool quickly. For modification, there is one non-standard receiver option available.
