The Hotchkiss M1930 heavy machine gun is a gas operated, air-cooled, automatic-only weapon, which fires from an open bolt. The long-stroke gas system locks using a tilting locking piece similar to those of the Hotchkiss M1922 LMG. The rear part of the barrel (behind the gas block) is encased in a radiator with radial cooling fins. This magazine-fed HMG incorporates a bolt hold-open device, which locks the bolt open once the magazine is empty, even if the trigger is still held down. The bolt hold-open device is automatically disengaged once a fresh magazine is inserted into the gun.
The M1930 heavy machine gun was available on a wide variety of mountings, including light infantry tripods (with no AA capability), wheeled mountings, as well as single, twin and quad AA mountings, with ground fire capability and comprehensive aiming systems.  The magazine-fed guns were also widely used on multiple gun mounts, either ground or naval.
