Weaponry Museum of Tula

The museum of weapons in Tula is one of the oldest museums, founded in 1724. Its new building was opened in 2012. This is a 6-storey building that looks like a Russian warrior’s helmet:

An epee. The first epees appeared in Spain in the second half of the 15th century.

    the browning on pg 4 is not heavy machine gun, it is only 30 cal. model 1917

      Actually it IS/Was considered to be a “heavy machine gun” the term is based on the projected use rather than on the caliber. This is a sustained fire weapon as it is equipped with a water jacket to allow prolonged firing.

      Perhaps a better term for it would be “support machine gun”.
