Lighter weight does not a total replacement make.

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.
