While watching the Military Channel the other night they were taking about the WW II fighters flown in the Pacific. They mentioned that 6000 of one model (I forget which one) US fighter were made and each plane had 6-.50 Cal Brownings in the wings, or 36,000 Brownings in just this one type fighter. Then when you consider that there were thousands of other fighters made, each of which had from 4 to 6+ guns in them, how many Brownings must have been made during the war? Add to this all of the bombers with ten or more .50s in them the total number must have been enormous. This is not even considering all of the .50 on tanks, half-tracks and other vehicles plus tripod mounts used by the ground troops. Does anyone have any idea how many Brownings were made from say 1940 to 1946?
