The heavy machine-guns of the MG platoon are essential for setting up a base of fire to support an infantry assault or destroy a Soviet human wave attack.

The DShK was an air-cooled, heavy machine gun that was used by the Soviet Union during World War II. Description. The DShK was capable of firing 12.7x108mm rounds at an effective range of 2,000 meters. Being fed by fifty round belts and having a rate of fire of 600 rounds per minute, the DShK was a very heavy weapon that was used in a variety of different roles.
The weapon was also used as a heavy infantry machine gun, in which case it was frequently deployed with a two-wheeled mounting and a single-sheet armour-plate shield. It took its name from the weapons designers Vasily Degtyaryov, who designed the original weapon, and Georgi Shpagin, who improved the cartridge feed mechanism.
There was a single DT secondary machine-gun next to the gun in a fixed cast encasing, firing tracers (954 rounds in 15 “cheesebox” magazines), and the DShK 300 rounds in strips of 50. The 12-cylinder 4-stroke V-type diesel engine V-2 IS-3 gave 520 hp at 2200 rpm. It was fed by two internal 450 liters tanks, with a safety obturation system.

Use flares to extend the effective range of weapons such as anti-tank guns. Watch out, scout cars (222, kubelwagon) deal increased damage to the Soviet sniper team.
