Bren Light Machine Gun
- Thu 09 Dec 2010
The Bren, usually called the Bren Gun, was a series of light
machine guns adopted by Britain in the 1930s and used in various
roles until 1991. While best known for its role as the British and
Commonwealth forces' primary infantry light machine gun (LMG) in
World War II, it was also used in the Korean War and saw service
throughout the latter half of the 20th century.
The Bren was a modified version of a Czechoslovak-designed light
machine gun, the ZB vz. 26, which British Army officials had tested
during a firearms service competition in the 1930s. The name
Bren was derived from Brno, the Czechoslovak city where the Zb vz.
26 was originally designed, and Enfield, site of the British Royal
Small Arms Factory.
