Description
Weight has always been an issue with machine guns, and the production of the M60 was no exception. It may have been planned as a lightweight alternative to older guns in 1957, but soldiers still called it "the Pig" later on during the Vietnam War. Soldiers also complained it kept jamming due to dirt. Despite their criticism, the M60 is still successfully in service with the U.S. Army helicopters, and with the Navy. It was originally designed using aspects of German machine guns which American officials thought were impressive, such as the side-loading belt feed. The M60 has been used in multiple movies, especially on helicopters. In movie circles, the M60 is possibly most famous for being in Rambo's arms on a regular basis. The M60 uses the unstoppable .308 Winchester / 7.62x51mm - find out more by following the link!
