Item #30021 THE M60 MACHINE GUN. Kevin Dockery.


England: Osprey Publishing, 2012. Paperback. 7 x 10, 80 pgs, index, b&w and color photos throughout. The US M60 General Purpose Machine Gun, known as the Pig, was developed in the years after World War II from two revolutionary German designs. Adopted in 1957, the M60 came into its own in the jungles, hamlets, and city streets of Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. Humping the Pig became common in US military squads, with at least one soldier equipped with an M60 and every squad member carrying ammunition for it. The M60 design transformed infantry tactics as squads took advantage of the immediate volume of fire offered by the design. Although it has now been replaced by the M240 series of weapons in US infantry and mechanized units, the M60 is still in common use with the US armed forces. Very Good. Item #30021
