I promise I won't ask any more dumb questions or comments! Chico
The water cooled Browning was used in combat, as I was in Heavy Weapons, M Co. 5th RCT in 1951. In the winter, we were supposed to use anti freeze, but we did not have any to spare as we had very little for the vehicles. We did urine on them at times or pack snow on the jackets to cool them down if need be.
