The M60 machine gun has served with distinction in every branch of the US military since its introduction in 1957. Weighing more than 20 pounds, the M60 and its variants are belt-fed machine guns chambered in 7.62 NATO and capable of firing between 500 and 650 rounds per minute. Due to its hefty weight and simplicity, soldiers dubbed the M60 “the Pig” in the Vietnam War. While the M60 was eventually replaced by newer light machine guns—such as the M249—it remains an iconic firearm for the US Armed Forces and is still popularly seen in film and other media.
