Machine Gun, Cal. .30, M37

The M37 was an interim modification to the M1919A4 .30 cal. machine gun for use as a tank machine gun. Ammunition could be fed from either side giving the machine gun more flexibility in tank mountings than either the M1919A4 or M1919A5. The M37 had a rate of fire of 400-550 spm. The model M37C was used as an aircraft gun on the OH-13 Sioux and OH-23 Raven on the skid-mounted M1 armament subsystem.
