    Hi Randolf, welcome to the forum! The correct name for this bit of kit is a Lafette.

    What you need is an English translation of the actual wartime user manual. These can be bought here cheaply:

    German Gun Manuals

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Randolf, Ben is correct.

    The MG3 and Lafette manual can be found in the link I posted.

    Cheers, Ade.
