After the occupation of the Czech lands was the LK vz. 26 accepted into the armament of the Wehrmacht after the designation MG 26(t) (maschinengewehr modell 26 tschechoslovakische).

The paradox, therefore, is that the design of this gun fought in WWII. on both sides - in the original design on the side of the states of the Axis - in the form of a machine-gun BREN on the allied side..

in addition to our and the German army it took other armies, especially the Romanian and yugoslav (indicated there was Puska-Mitralez 7.9 mm M26) in German service it was used in addition to WH (here rather from a lack of MG 34) in particular, units of the SS which originally were not allowed to restrict the supply for the WH. In the service of the machine-guns lasted until the end of the war, there are references about the tray for 30 rounds, unfortunately I didn't confirm..

Quote - bitaxe :

in addition to our and the German army it took other armies, especially the Romanian and yugoslav (indicated there was Puska-Mitralez 7.9 mm M26)...

Already in 1927, was the first delivery of 1’500 light machine guns ZB-26. Weapons in Yugoslavia have received the label Puškomitraljez Zbrojovka 7,9 mm M-26. The yugoslavs, however, should objections to the low reliability of the machine gun ZB-26, which, however, was caused by the poor quality of gunpowder, which were filled with yugoslav ammo. Brno zbrojovka therefore, the yugoslav army offered the machine gun ZB-30, developed on the basis of operating experience from Romania, where it displayed the same problems with poor quality gunpowder. A modified machine gun received the designation ZB-30J and Yugoslavia them in 1936 took 15’of 500 pieces.

If someone wanted a super-manic training nábóje of the LK vz.26, had to have a special attachment and the barrel, which narrowed the barrel, this resulted in the necessary pressure gas to move the piston.

svědčí o tom tovární značka "WaffenAmt"....WaA 63..Zbrojovka Brno



Waffenamt není označení zbrojovky, ale přejimacího důstojníka (?) přiděleného dané zbrojovce, který přejímal zbraně pro říšskou brannou moc.
