MG42 in slo mo

This is just fascinating. We had the modern variant of the MG42 when I was in the HJV (Danish Home Guard) called the MG3 and I was trained to use it though I was never the squad LMG man (I was a forward scout). The MG42 was the version used by the Germans during WW2 and it was/is a wicked weapon capable of a horrendous rate of fire. When fired, it has a very characteristic droning 'burr' noise which is easily identified.
