BREN is a composite of BRuno and ENfield who co-developed the LMG before WW2 based on Bruno design concepts. The Bren served Commonwealth forces from 1937 through to 1966 in British 303 and until 1998 in 7.62x51mm Nato form. A two man or 3 man crew could lay down effective fire using the magazines and offset sights that would amass more total fire down range than any other system bar the MG42.
