Vickers is an English version of the Maxim heavy machine gun.
The Vickers was the main machine gun of the British infantry from its adoption in 1912 until the early 1960s. England was one of the first powers to appreciate the advantages and power of automatic weapons, which were and are machine guns.
The Vickers machine gun is an automatic weapon based on automatic barrel recoil (short stroke). As the shot is fired, the powder gases send the barrel back, thereby starting the reloading mechanism - it removes the cartridge from the cloth cartridge belt, sends it to the breech and at the same time cocks the bolt. After the shot is fired, the operation is repeated anew. The machine gun has a replaceable set of reciprocating mainsprings, which allow firing at a rate of 600 or 900 rounds per minute, and the combat rate of fire is 250-300 rounds per minute. The trigger system is designed only for automatic fire and has a fuse against accidental shots. The machine gun is powered by cartridges from a slide-type receiver, with a cloth or metal tape with a capacity of 50 to 250 or more rounds, which appeared later. The sighting device included a rack-mounted sight and a front sight with a rectangular top. Machine guns can also be equipped with an optical sight.
