The standard AA machine gun, the Spandau M.08 [Dutch M.25] - may 1940

The majority of the Dutch AA machine gun platoons were equipped with this heavy MG. Although a formidable and reliable weapon in the German trenches in WWI, these weapons were hardly serviceable in May 1940 due to severe wear.

The picture shows a re-enactment group of De Greb Foundation.
