Did LRDG use .50 cals with flash hiders?

That’s not a .50cal. It’s a .303 Browning used in aircraft. The LRDG salvaged weapons from downed or scrapped RAF planes and modified them for use. There are pictures showing them being used both in single and twin mounts.

Thanks. I should have caught that.

Quite right, but still doable if you like the .50.

Interesting. There’s also a BESA machine gun usually mounted in tanks.
Would be nice to see them do the big Vickers water cooled .50. Just not sure if they were ever mounted in the Ford, have seen them on the Chevy though.
