While the Germans are the most famous users of armed motorcycles, thanks to their MG34 armed BMW cycle/sidecar combinations, they were by no means the first to come up with the concept. The first to use machinegun-toting motorcycles were the British, who employed them as part of the Motor Machine Gun Corps and its successor units from 1915 to 1918.
They mounted the water-cooled Vickers medium machinegun on the Clyno motorcycle with a customized van sidecar, which was probably the best bike made in Britain at the time, holder of dozens of hill climb records, which was at the time considered the optimum means of measuring a motorcycle's offroad ability.
Able to span the length of the British sector of the Western Front, the Clyno-Vickers MG Carrier on countless occasions provided the necessary mobility and firepower to smash German breakthroughs and drive enemy troops back into their trenches.
This document fully details the Clyno-Vickers Machine Gun Carrier, plus the Vickers medium machine gun that armed it. Appendices providing information compatible with D20 Modern, Spycraft 2.0, and Savage Worlds is included.
