    ~ History ~

    The ZB 37 was manufactured between 1937 & 1941. The ZB-53 was a machine gun used by the Czechoslovak army designated TK vz. 37, by Romanian army as ZB Md. 37 and by German forces during World War II as the MG 37, often by the SS.

    It was a gas-operated, belt-fed, air-cooled weapon that served both the infantry support and vehicle weapons roles. The British adopted a version of the ZB-53 as the Besa machine gun for their armoured forces.

    The Chinese Nationalist Army also had 850 ZB-53s and used them to defense the castles along the Yellow River during the Second Sino-Japanese War....Read full description
