AB Vickers HMG is a British Infantry unit.
An improved Maxim machine gun, the Vickers HMG was a reliable machine gun used by the British from the First World War up to the late twentieth century. It was an infantry machine gun, but Vickers variants also saw service on armoured vehicles and were used as anti-aircraft defence on ships.
In the Parachute Battalion's Headquarter Company has two Mortar Platoons which usually use AB 3-in Mortar. Each crew can switch from Mortars to Vickers with discretion of the unit commander.
Machine guns are effective at pinning down enemy infantry and can also inflict damage on half tracks or jeeps. Like infantry, they should be stationed in bocage terrain or urban terrain.
The Vickers is limited by its 500m range, the shortest MG range in the game, but can be fielded in more numbers than other MGs.
