Ammunition - 30 Caliber Military Belt Feed

Initially developed in 1906 for the U.S. Springfield M-1903 rifle, the versitile .30-06 became the standard U.S. military cartridge used during both World Wars 1 and 2, and was used in a variety of weapons, including rifles as well as many models of light and medium machine guns. Machine gun usage included not only infantry weapons, but also models adapted for aircraft, for armored vehicles and naval vessels. Finally, in 1954 the .30-06 Military cartridge was officially replaced by the 7.62mm cartridge (current 7.62x51mm NATO round) as the U.S. M-14 began to be phased in as the new service rifle. The .30-06 continued in service for machine guns and for the many .30 cal rifles that remained in use for snipers, ceremonial duties, and other uses well into the 1970s. Of course the .30-06 continues a strong presence in the civilian market. This model depicts 30.06 caliber belt-fed machine gun ammo circa World War 1 (1917) in original wooden box with cloth feed belt, 30.06 caliber ammo in World War Two metal box with M1 disintegrating link belt, and the modern replacement 7.62x51mm NATO round with M13 disintegrating link belt and modern ammo box. Included in a comparison ot the original 30.06 round with the current 7.62 NATO round. Various model features can be toggled on and off via the Layer Manager. Thanks to RLGun for use of his ammo box and original .50 caliber ammunition, on which my model is based. #30_caliber #3006 #3006_Springfield #762 #762_NATO #762mm #762x51 #762x51mm #ammo #ammunition #belt_fed #belt_feed #beltfed #beltfeed #Browning #disintegrating #disintegrating_link #firearm #gun #machine_gun #machinegun #Military #NATO #Weapon #World_War_1 #World_War_2 #WW1 #WW2
