During World War I, heavy machine guns were used to mow down waves of incoming troops during trench warfare. Lessons were learned as a result of the mass casualties and nations began to adopt heavy machine guns with greater standoff range and greater firepower. The M2 Browning machine gun from famed American gun designer John Browning was the first 50-caliber machine gun in the United States Military arsenal and debuted in 1933.
