This gun was a beast to the american's this gun is so fast that it waste 1,550 Rounds a minute. but it got a hot barrel real quick! and they can change the barrel it had alot of recoil so it was hard to aim even if a bipod was on. so the soldiers was trained to fire in bursts

What I Learned

In doing this project,I learned that

the people who think D-Day was easy, are wrong. I learned D-Day was a big horrible event to the soldier’s. If D-Day never came we may still be fighting and many lives would continue to be lost. The brave soldiers that went in and fought to the end are very proud to have fought the Germans defenses to stop the war. Yes, we lost a lot of lives because of D-Day, but at least we were able to stop the Nazis. :)
