One of the tactics is to exhaust your enemies weapons capabilities. Getting the enemy to over heat their weapons is one of them. Even heavy duty machine guns will over heat. CBC rifles, are just not designed for sustained fire.
Water cooled guns should be perfect for that, they are designed for sustained fire, you had trouble with them??
As a matter of fact, the Chinese & NK's with their massive frontal attacks, taught us that in Korea! We didn't have Claymores and our machine guns were WWII relics, both water cooled and air-cooled. They were not made for fast barrel changes either.
My BAR never caught fire, but it did get real HOT! :eek:
As for the Red neck's what can I say? :doh: What a dumb a--!:2c:
Yes! Barrels still burned out as well as below O degrees weather in some cases, didn't help. My unit didn't have many, we had more of the Browning Light machine Guns.
The overheating could ignite residual oil on the exterior while the brass cartridge cases remain--at least while this numbnutz is shooting--protected by the strength of the chamber. A barrel can become a dull glowing red and then ash white during sustained "abuse." It wouldn't surprise me to learn that these goofballs gave the weapon a good slimy enhanced oiling prior to their videotaping.
Without the flames, you don't have a show.
