The Maschinengewehr 08, or MG 08, was the German Army's standard machine gun in the First World War. Its practical range was estimated at some 2,000 metres up to an extreme range of 3,700 metres. The MG 08/15 was the lightened and thus more portable light machine gun from the standard MG 08,  and about 130,000 MG 08/15 were manufactured during the war. The MG 08/15 had been designed around the concept of portability, which meant that the firepower of a machine gun could be taken forward conveniently by assaulting troops, and moved between positions for tactical fire support; as such, the MG 08/15 was to be manned by two trained infantrymen, a shooter and an ammo bearer. In the attack the weapon would be fired on the move (marching fire) while on the defence the team would make use of the bipod from the prone position.
