The Madsen machine gun is a machine gun of Danish origin.


First entered production in 1902, the Madsen machine gun was one of the earliest successful light machine guns produced in quantity. It was adopted by the Danish army and was also exported to a number of countries in various calibres. It was expensive to produce, but was also considered reliable by its users, which let it continue to stay in service for some time even after World War II.

The Madsen machine gun is available as the primary weapon of the Dutch assault class in Battlegroup42.
