Just asking becouse it is shorter making it easier to carry around. Myself i think it would have suited to Infantry units, Especially Paratroops and Marines.

I think someone is having a laugh with you Cutaway, they are very badly photoshopped pictures.
The M1919A2 doesn't look like that.

Not for nothing but Germansoldier you need to do some research yourself before giving out false information and agreeing with everyone every time and trying to bump your post count up . and no Cuts its not a bad photo shop photo its the real thing .

The 1919A2 was developed to address the need for a lightened 1917 for use with the cavalry. Because of its compact size, it also saw extensive service in tanks. It was essentially an air-cooled 1917 with a redesigned rear sight, which also had a lower profile as it did not need to sight over the larger water jacket.

Oh GermanSoldier this is not from the Korean War either please do your research. The gun was designed in the 1920's at the request of the US Calvary.
