The LSW problem could be solved if it could be re - bored to fire the 7.62NATO round. But that would take lots of money and it was a failing at the
start and would be alot cheaper to buy another 7.62 Rifle as they are doing now. Its a shame, that it wasnt a 7.62 weapon to start with, would have
saved the British Army alot of money.
EDIT : I wasnt aware that the GPMG was carried by a section, I thought it was a Platoon fire support weapon, and some sections only have one minimi,
but that is a supply issue I beleive.
