The M1914 Hotchkiss machine gun became the standard machine gun of the French Army during World War I. The Hotchkiss M1914 replaced the St. Étienne Mle 1907 and became standard for the French infantry in late 1917. The American Expeditionary Forces (A.E.F.) in France also used the M1914 Hotchkiss extensively in 1917 and 1918.
The Hotchkiss machine gun remained in active service with the French army until the early 1940s and used by the Germans for secondary troops guarding installations during World War II. The Japanese produced two variants under licence, the Type 3 Heavy Machine Gun chambered in 6.8mm Arisaka and the Type 92 Heavy Machine Gun chambered in 7.7mm SR. Both retained the clip feed of the original.
