Lewis Machine Gun. This is an American and British design from World War I.  It was the foundation for some heavy weapons used by the stormtroopers in Star Wars.  Considered one of the best light machine guns of the war, political pressures from our French allies kept it out of US hands and saw our army and marines carry the horrendous Chauchat Light Machine Gun.  Near the end of the war, some Marine units fielded the Lewis gun with positive results.
