I have been thinking (I know dangerous). I purchased a GSG MP40. I have a carrying bag for it that allows 5 magazines. So that got me thinking in that how much ammo did a squad leader carry? The magazines are large and bulky. I can't see a tanker bailing out with his MP40 with 6 (the most I have seen on a soldat) magazines. How long would they last? So that got me thinking further. Regardless of nationality, how many magazines, clips, etc did a soldier take with him into battle and how long would it last? Not like the hollywood unlimited magazine clips...LOL. I know heavy machine gun crews had helpers to carry the ammo. So that one I kinda figured. But what does a lone soldier do when he runs out of ammo?
