    Brownings only mounted on Unimogs for a very short time as Mount was designed for GPMG and when passed into service the Browning was replaced by the Bren.

    Hi there,
    Air Corps Brownings were only in .303. They were metal-link-fed fixed mounting guns from scrapped fighters or turret mounts such as the Hudson. I was told once that the Brownings on the Unimogs came with them.

    As far as I know they were ex-Air Corps .30 (US .30-06) Brownings. They replaced the Madsen's between 1956-1957.

    Off the top of my head the armament for the Landsverks was:-

    1 X Madsen 20mm AT Gun

    2 x Madsen .303 MG's.

    In 1974 five of the Lansverk had 1 X 20mm Hispano-Suiza cannon fitted
    but was not a great success has the rate of fire was reduced to 600rpm which lead to frequent jamming.

    Connaught Stranger,
