Belt Fed

Sitting home on a rainy afternoon, surfing the book of Face, and we come upon this little jewel.

Indeed, Chuck, indeed.  Me and my Ma Deuce with a bustle rack full of ammo cans.  Or, my gunner running the 240 as a coax, with 5000 rounds of linked goodness in the ammo tray.  Those are good memories for an old Cavalryman.

I did AIT at Ft Hood on the M84 4.2 Mortar Carrier in '60. Played kick the tin can with 55 gal drums on the 50 cal range. The optical sight was very accurate out to a klick and a half. Fun times...
