How a Bren MKII works
The Bren gun, usually called simply the Bren, were a series of light machine guns (LMG) made by Britain in the 1930s and used in various roles until 1992. While best known for its role as the British and Commonwealth forces' primary infantry LMG in World War II, it was also used in the Korean War and saw service throughout the latter half of the 20th century, including the 1982 Falklands War. Although fitted with a bipod, it could also be mounted on a tripod or vehicle-mounted. Ironically, the Bren light machine gun was very heavy, at approximately 10-11 kg.
