Amazing! Question though. Whats up with the guys eyes on the right? Is it just from the flash, or something else? He honestly looks like he has that cloudy eye blindness. It shows on the original too.
They definitely got the right guy operating the gun.
The guy on the right looks like he’s 14, he probably IS 14 though considering how many kids snuck into the military
M1914 Hotchkiss Heavy Machinegun, fed by 24-round strips, firing 8mm Lebel. US bought 7000 of them from the French for use on the Western Front.
