:squi: Did any of the AVG jeeps have machine guns mounted on them?  I have seen no pictures.  I know machine guns were mounted on AA mounts, but were they mounted in anyway to vehicles.  I appreciate any help.  I am restoring an AVG jeep and I am looking at possibly mounting a replica machine gun on jeep.  Were they AN-M2 30 cal?  Thank you so much.

The AVG did not have machine guns mounted on their jeeps. Some of the personnel carrried Bren guns and a few had Tompsons. Most AVG individuals
had personal sidearms.

Thank you for responding.  I will not mount machine gun in jeep! I want to be authentic!  I am almost finished with jeep and I will send link when I am done.  I plan on attending the Chino Air SHow in CA, with the AVG jeep in May with the AVG LIVING HISTORY GROUP.  Thank you again for your time.

Just to clarify, did AVG personnel carry the small Sten machine gun pistol, or the Bren gun LMG?  Thank you again.

We took a few .303 Brens and a couple of WW I .30 caliber  water cooled Brownings with us to Magwe, Burma.
