King's Arms Model 1899 'Rathone'
King's Arms Model 1902
After the success of the King's Arms M1897 'Tac Tac', inventor Giuseppe Gordono sought to make a lighter light machine gun to make fire-power even more mobile. Drawing from the design of the Inesean manufactured Type 45 Automatic Rifle, first encountered in Voerdenland, Giuseppe sought to combine the idea of a Light Machine Gun with the popularity and versatility of the already legendary 97 'Tac Tac'.
King's Arms 1899 'Rathone' (Airborne)
The M1899-A was a mounted version popularized as a light machine-gun for airships and other vehicles... note that the round drum is similar to the King's Arms 1897 'Tac Tac'... however, this mounted arrangement did not prove to be as popular as the original 'Tac Tac', and only about a thousand were made in this configuration.
