The M60 Machine Gun

The M60 gun is a pretty popular weapon emulation in the SATR system. Especially for those battlefield operators who have included the Morita model in their arsenal.

The M60 machine gun features a huge 100 shot belt, is capable of fully automatic and semiautomatic fire. It has a default emulation is long-range.

It configured with 7 spare belts of 7.62mm NATO ammunition and takes 8 seconds to reload. 

The M60 machine gun was designed in the late 1940s based on the German MG42. The M60 was adopted by the US military in 1950.   

The longer reload time reflects the time it takes to let the barrel cool down and the awkward barrel change as well as the general poor reliability of the M60.

First batches of this machine gun were made in the 1950s.
