Description

The M60 evolved as a result of the US Army's desire to replace the aging Browning series of machine-guns in favor of a general purpose machine-gun in a similar vein to the MG42 used by the Germans during World War Two.

1/7th Cavalry’s support weapons were reorganized into a new D Company as the battalion prepared to depart for Vietnam. The scout platoon was reorganized as an extra rifle platoon, while the anti-tank platoon left its M40 106mm recoilless guns back in the States, picking up M60 machine-guns instead. When the anti-tank platoon landed on LZ X-Ray, they were able to hold the exposed flank with the extra firepower of their machine-guns.
