The M-60 is a belt-fed machine gun, firing the 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge (.308" Winchester commonly used in larger rifles), manufactured by the US company Saco Defense. There are several types of ammunition approved for use in the M-60, including ball, tracer and armor-piercing rounds. It is generally used as a crew-served weapon and operated by a team of two or three individuals. The team consists of the gunner, the AG - Assistant Gunner and the AB - Ammunition Bearer. The gun's weight and the amount of ammunition it can consume when fired make it difficult for a single soldier to carry and operate. The gunner carries the weapon and depending on his or her strength and stamina, anywhere from 200 to 1000 rounds of ammunition. The assistant carries a spare barrel and extra ammunition and reloads and spots targets for the gunner. The ammunition bearer carries additional ammunition and the tripod with associated traversing and elevation mechanism, if issued and fetches more ammunition as needed during firing.
