Anyone else feeling this or maybe I am doing something wrong?
I always keep my heavey MG 42s well to the rear since they have a 1,000 meter range and are easily supressed by an infantry squad or two that is within a couple of hundred meters. I also try and work them in pairs when possible since they always seem to jam at the worst time.
