Ckm wz. 30 was the main heavy machine gun used by Polish Army in 1939. Design, strongly inspired by american Browning M1917 HMG, was modified and improved since 1931, including such differences as greater caliber and improved sights. Machine gun was also equipped with water-cooling system and advanced tripod mounting, allowing crew to use Ckm wz. 30 for anti-aircraft fire. Machine gun was crewed by 3-man squad - machine gunner, loader and spotter, acompanied by 4 additional soldiers, providing support and ammunition. This weapon was also used in many Polish vehicles, such as 7TP or Vickers tanks. 

As the rest of the Polish forces 10th Brigade used wz. 30 machine guns for support and covering fire. Such weapon proved to be very useful in defence efforts and highly-trained crews fought bravely against the German invaders.
