FN Minimi: Takes STANAG mags as well as belts, This one is probably the most popular

Cetme Ameli: A 'Mini MG42/3' It takes belts and fires rapid like the MG42/3, Would probably be more popular than the Minimi if it could take Mags

Stoner 63: A weapon of all trades, Possible it lead to the Minimi, It was also used by Navy Seals in Vietnam

Browning Automatic Rifle(B.A.R.): Invented in WW1 as a 'Trench Broom' It served WW2 and up to Vietnam but was later replaced by the Minimi

Bren/ZB26: One of the Best guns used in British service, It was derived from the Czech ZB26 and served through WW2, Then converted to 7.62 and served up to the Falklands. The WW2 era .303 variant is still used by the Irish Defence Forces!.

RPD: A Russian weapon that shoots 7.62 Intermediate AK rounds from a belt

RPK: Basically a long barreled AK47/AKM/74

HK21/23: Similar to the G3 Rifle but has ability to take belts

HK MG36: Popular with SF units, It a sustained fire variant of the G36 rifle and also lead to the XM8 series

HK MG43: The closest thing to the FN Minimi, It has replaced the HK21/23 although it is still in production

L86A2: The Light Support Weapon(LSW) is just an SA80 designed for sustained fire

FN FAL 50-41: Used by Argentineans during the Falklands, Some British Soldiers swapped thier Semi Auto SLRs for these

L2A1 SAW: Britain had the Bren, The Commonwealth had these, It was the only 'SLR' that was fully auto, Its basically the FN FAL 50-41 listed above.

My vote would go to the A10 Warthog or the infamous AC-130

Well, without a doubt, the most fearful weapon out there is the M60 paired with a red bandana, an ammo belt, a constipated stance and long curly hair, that should be enough to give grown men a involuntary bowel movement


This only seconded by the Mi-24 Hind, I don't know how many men have crapped them selves seeing THAT sneak up on them.
