Of course, I find it difficult to imagine a Kafkaesque situation that isn't from Kafka.
Like in The Trial when Josef K. has to meet an employer and no one told him when so he assumes he's to meet them at 9 and he gets in trouble for being late, so he told to be there at 8:45 the next week and he does and no one is there.
That's an MG 42. Greatest machine gun ever made. Essentially every NATO-used machine gun is based on it. The MG3 is an MG 42, all of FN's designs are all based on the MG 42, which includes all of the machine guns currently used by the US military, the M-60 was an MG 42 barrel and receiver with new housing...
If there is a machine gun made in Western Europe or North America, it's based on the MG 42.
