.30 Caliber Machine Gun
Armies often find similar solutions to similar problems.
The .30 caliber machine gun used by the US Army was not too different from the German machine gun.
I have taken the American water cooled machine gun and placed it on a German tripod.
The Germans used a lot of captured equipment, but I have no evidence for this particular combination.
Still, I think it is a reasonable combination.
I have given it to my George Washington Legion troops.
I placed the American machine gun and mount on the German machine gun tripod.
I suspect that the Germans could have done this.
It would not be a very difficult conversion.
