My favourite snow vehicle.

It's .12'7x99mm-NATO (.50-BMG) General Dynamics XM312-LHMG, there. Call it Godzilla-hunting vehicle instead.

Where is the heater?
 
Looks more like a warm weather vehicle.

At 240 rounds per minute?
 
With a cyclic rate as low as that thing has... please tell the the Ma-Deuce is still an /option/, if not standard!

When the XM312-LHMG enters service (with the military denomination of M-312 probably), it's gonna be retirement time for Ma Deuce, except in some Third World shithole.

Want to put some money on that?


That toy does nothing better than the M2, its only advantage is lighter weight.

Lighter weight does not a total replacement make.


Saying that thing will replace the M2 is like saying the M249 was going to replace the M60... Instead it simply filled a different role of LMG, while the M60 remaind the GPMG for quite a while, until being replaced by the M240.

Lighter weight and lower rate of fire in the XM312-LHMG makes it more controllable, steadier in fire, and all of the above, in conjunction with its last-generation aiming system, makes target engagement faster and with higher hits ratio.

Sure, this doesn't makes a total replacement, if you need a weapon that has to spray out hundreds of bullets with no need to hit the target.

Plus, remember, the M2 is something like a 80-years-old concept. How long will it be proficuously usable in modern combats?

Nonetheless, it still puts a helluva fire through.

BTW, this should be in the "General Firearms discussion". What about opening an "XM312-LHMG Vs. Browning M2" there? No, seriously, I wouldn't dislike to hear from somebody (member of the Military, maybe?) who has had both the luck to shoot the M2 and to test-fire the XM312-LHMG.
