Living history, this official US Army film bulletin outlines the advantages of American automatic weapons compared to Germany’s. Side by side live fire comparison of rate of fire vs accuracy and ammunition consumption.
Everything in life and war is a trade-off. In this case, I think the results speak for themselves. Logistics matter, ammunition is heavy. Trust me, any one who ever humped machinegun ammo hates high rate of fire.
