The 7.62 mm M60E2 machine gun was developed by Saco Defense for installation in armoured vehicles, aircraft and boats. It is a solenoid-operated weapon and 80 per cent of the components of the standard M60E2 are interchangeable with those of the Saco M60 general purpose machine gun, which is the standard weapon of its type in the US armed forces. A barrel extension blast tube and gas evacuator tube system carry harmful blasts and gases to the outside when used in internal applications.
Production complete. In service with the US Marine Corps. This weapon is not used by the US Army.
