The Germans typically used 6 men in the MG crews. The gunner (carried and operated) assist. gunner/loader (tripod & AA) and 4 riflemen who carried 2000 rounds and all the stuff pictured. Some accounts of sustained fire the crew would carry 4+ barrels and men would take turns urinating on them too cool them off quicker. That still blows me away!!
