UK In Action: Scots Guards Machinegun

A soldier from the The 1st Batallion The Scots Guards is pictured with a Light Machine Gun (LMG) near the village of Inzgule, Helmand, Afghanistan. Developed from the Minimi Light Machine Gun following experience in Iraq and Afghanistan, the LMG is a belt-fed suppression weapon. It provides the section commander with the capability to impose sustained suppressive fire onto an objective out to 300m and increases the overall firepower available to the section commander. The LMG complements the Light Support Weapon and enhances the effectiveness of all section weapons across the spectrum of Infantry operations.
