Central had a lot of Lewis guns available, they fell out of the sky pn s regular basis…Crews seem to have been as impressed with them as Entente flyers were. I read somewhere that MVR had captured Lewis guns set up round his airfield for extra AA defence. They were also used instead of Parabellums for observers, maybe they were lighter or handled cold conditions better.
LOL Mog'"...fell out of the sky on a regular basis..."
...while there may be some
truth to that, it sounds more like a nifty little tag line! Falling out of the sky from an average of ten-thousand feet, on a regular basis or otherwise, tends to make a Lewis gun pretty darn unservicable! But even if a few were still worth using, how long you think it took until you needed a replacment part...
But, be that as it may, I'm still ok with it. Heck, the Albies already have the "trophy aldis", let's give them the "trophy lewis" to go with it.
Nah, I think it is/was a game-balancer move - So I support it and made the purchase!
...but don't kid yourself. With the new working foster mount.....the Central Powers side needed something
to prevent the masses from screaming "allied-bias!"....erm'...no wait....that already happened didn't it?Bottom line though -- it's going to be a ton-o-fun playing with all these new toys!!!![EDIT]: Looks like you're right Mog', thanks to, and I quote, "the BE2c/d/e delivery Service"
