Battlefront features US Army Machine Gun Platoon for Tour of Duty

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.
