Battlefront is featuring another unit for Tour of Duty over on their website. This one’s the Machine Gun Platoon.

From the website:

Machine-gun Platoon (Airmobile) (VUS708) includes one Command M16 team, two Machine-gun Squads each with two M60 LMG teams, one Small three-hole base & four Medium four-hole bases.

The M60 evolved as a result of the US Army’s desire to replace the aging Browning series of machine-guns in favour of a general purpose machine-gun in a similar vein to the MG42 used by the Germans during World War Two.
