This is a US M249 SAW,


This is a FN Minimi (para form, note folding stock and shorter barrel)




This is the Australian version F89 Minimi, note the optical 1.5X sight. It is the standard section based Light Support Weapon,
as opposed to the MAG-58 which we also use,


But this 7.62mm weapon is used in a heavier "support" role, which fits well in accordance with the Australian military doctrine of striking hard and fast at critical points and not getting bogged down.[/quote]

While in KFOR '99 I was in a security unit that have to secure the german HQ. We carried only 2 Mags. (60 Rounds) for the G36. Thats not much, but the situation in Prizren was not hot and we where always inside the camp.

And at least we had everytime a Marder APC ready for action.[/url]

The Aussie units seem well organized. I'm not a huge AUG fan, but it is a good weapon, nonetheless.

I wonder what the "Ideal" setup would be for a squad???
