Does any one have pictures of a Besa 15mm Heavy machine gun?
I did a google on besa for you and got this
Not what you are looking for I imagine but I thought you might be interested
lol ive been googleing it for an hour or so and cant find a thing
I looked a little bit and can't find anything.
There's one on my site, in an article about the .5 inch Vickers - see below. It's the Czech original, on a spring-wheel carriage.

o the vz60? i kno we got another model of the besa which was a 7.92mm, well thanks anyway
Yes, the 15 mm Besa was the ZB vz/60. The 7.9 mm Besa was the ZB vz/53.
ok thank you for your help
Thats cos you've gone blind!!
actually i am in 1 eye(no jk i am)
they were used by the british on Crusader tanks. these tanks fought in nourth africa
i know the 7.92 besa was used in tanks but i thought the 15mm was only used in armoured cars such as the humber
It was also used in the Mk VIc light tank - this had coaxial 7.9mm and 15mm Besas, whereas the Mk VIb had Vickers .303" and .5".
o right well thanks
