“A powerful anti-infantry unit which excels against large groups of enemies. Their attacks suppress enemy infantry, causing them to move at half speed and deal half damage.”

The Vickers Machine Gun is a level 3 standard Machine Gun Infantry unlocked in Industrial Age. Its predecessor is the Heavy Gatling Gun and can be upgraded to the Heavy Machine Gun.

General Information Edit

This unit has the ability to shoot multiple defenders at once and over the wall at a relatively shorter distance compare to other Range Unit. Their target will move at half speed and deal half damage.

Historical Description Edit

The weapon had a reputation for great solidity and reliability. Ian V. Hogg, in Weapons & War Machines, describes an action that took place in August 1916, during which the British 100th Company of the Machine Gun Corps fired their ten Vickers guns continuously for twelve hours. Using 100 barrels, they fired a million rounds without a failure.

Trivia Edit

A machine gun is a firearm designed to fire bullets as long as the trigger is held, as opposed to semi-automatic weapons that require a trigger-pull for each bullet. The first truly automatic machine gun, the water-cooled Maxim, saw action in WWI, helping make that conflict the high-casualty nightmare it would become.

Visuals Edit

This MG is most likely based off of the Vickers MG or MG08
