Replaced the Lewis Guns on aircraft, a development of the Vickers-Berthier (see below) but described as a back handled Bren Gun with a drum feed by some morons, it had a ROF of between 950 and 1200 rds/min. The SAS used them on vehicle mounts until they wore out.

Vickers-Berthier

The predecessor of above, this weapon is in NO WAY related to the Bren: a frequently found misconception since it does resemble one.
