It didn't take long to remember that the original issue was with making the sledge for the MG08. It was fiddly and annoying to make and both are a bit wonky, something sort of hidden by the crew now.

As for the MG08, it did come with a tripod option and the Turks at least used them and I intend to add Turks so, there we are!
