Oh I know. I just meant look-wise, and by that I basically meant the giant Pan.The Vickers K, or VGO, was actually based on the Vickers-Berthier that was in competition with the Bren for the role of British Light Machine Gun (It was actually winning the earlier trials. The V-B was adopted by the Indian Army instead of the Bren. So the Vickers K could probably fulfill the role of light machine gun just fine, though it would probably be better if it were slowed down. And a belt or magazine feed would be appreciated. Still, it is an attractive option if you can get a hold of them. Especially since the RAF had decided to replace the Vickers K with the Browning wherever possible (They found the job of switching drums took too long).

The Germans really don't want an artillery war. They're almost out of copper for driving bands.When considering a longer period well depends what you mean by long. With a longer European war its difficult to see how that works in Germany's favour. They really do need to win a few weeks at the outside and with the panzerwaffe otherwise they end up in an artillery war vs people with twice as many artillery pieces and much more productive capacity.
Gembloux very similar to OTL, although the French recovered more damaged tanks.
... which may not turn out in the Allies' favour, if it keeps 1st Army and the BEF further North for longer while things are falling apart to the South.Gembloux very similar to OTL, although the French recovered more damaged tanks.
The break in the line occurred after; in OTL, it started a general withdrawal, this time with British help accepted the breach has been stoppered
There is also the 1st DCR from the north (in Belgium) and the 2nd DCR that in OTL May 16th fought in Saint-Quentin.The French have one shot at sealing the breach west of Sedan, with 7th army (1 DLM, 1st Armoured and 3 motorised infantry divisions) coming down from the North and 3 DCR plus support counterattacking from the South. If they fail - against elements of 7 Panzer divisions plus support currently crossing the river - something like the OTL breakout is extremely likely as the French have no mobile reserve left. At best what's left of 7th army gets to play suicide roadblock as the Allied forces in Belgium withdraw South with all haste.
