There are 3 instances in the movie when the German MG-42 machine gun is fired - first when Hilts is testing the blind spot by the fence, 2nd when Ives is shot on the fence, and finally, when Roger and the others are executed. The sound of the machine gun is that of a US or British gun (maybe a Browning or Vickers) which had a rate of fire of about 600 rounds per minute.
