Hotchkiss M1909

KEY Weapon

All About History - - GREATEST BATTLES | BATTLE OF MEGIDDO -

First pro­duced in 1909, this gasop­er­ated light ma­chine gun could be belt or strip-fed.

Strengths: This eas­ily mov­able gun had an equally mo­bile tri­pod. Weak­nesses: Parts of the M1909 reg­u­larly broke and were of­ten dif­fi­cult to re­place, al­though this was partly due to poor train­ing.
