    How to make bacon Danish Army style

    All you need is: bacon, aluminum foil, a bit of string, a 7.62mm machine gun and about 200 rounds.

    You start by wraping the spare gun barrel in aluminum foil. Then you wrap the bacon around it and tie it with a little twine.

    After just a few short bursts, you can smell the wonderful aroma of bacon.

    After about 150 rounds, your bacon is quite ready to be consumed. There's nothing like the smell of sizzling bacon mixed with the smell of gunpowder and gun oil.

    And the final result: Crispy fried bacon.

    Bon appetite.

    Good one

    Reminds me of transmission BBQ, where you secure some meat in tin foil on top of the tank's engine grill and just run the tank for a bit.
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    AR, wrong because that's not how you're meant to use the MG, or wrong because you regret never thinking of this yourself?

    Benny, my answer is Yes.

    Don, I go more towards WD40/Hoppes.

    (Still on Wife's computer!) This is not necessarily such a new idea. During WW1 Tommies and Commonwealth solders were reputed to boil up hot water for their tea ration using the water jackets on their Vickers machine guns. Early Versions had a rubber tube attachment that connected to a small condenser can used as a water reservoir. The water in the jacket itself would be undrinkable but not necessarily the water in the can. Don't now how true this story is but it does give an idea about how much heat putting a few hundred rounds through an MG can produce.

    I dont think that is true, because surrounding the barrel of the MG is a jacket filled with water, as the water boils off, steam is directed down to the condenser reservoir, where it is re-circulated as a liquid back up to the barrel jacket. The liquid in the barrel jacket and the condenser is the same.

    Cheers!...on the rocks!!

    Back in the mid eighties, On exercise in Denmark, we spent the last couple of days at a tank park near to Oxbol. The Danish army tried to put on an English breakfast, but used tinned bacon. The English amongst us, did nothing complain, that a country that produced good bacon, served up "Compo" bacon!

    Yes it is.
    It's called LMG M/62 in the Danish Armed Forces.

    A reliable weapon that just works under all conditions.

    Hard to argue with success.

    I know the MG3 is basically just a re-chambered German MG42 from WWII, guess it's a pretty good design!

    Well we infantry chaps just used the good old, wood fired field stove - food tastes better than the k-oil burners.
