I'm working on a couple of figures and was wondering about what a gunners assistant might be lugging around. The first figure in my plan has a MG34, or I might do the MG42, over one shoulder and an extra ammo can in his other hand. The other figure will have the tripod mount on his back. My question is what else would the guy carrying the tripod be capable of packing? Should he have a rifle and ammo pouches? Could he also be carrying ammo cans etc etc. And while I have you here, how many guys were in the MG crew? Thanks in advance for any help.
