The General Purpose Machine Gun, that was normally seen as a stationary gun emplacement, is usually placed near defensive positions surrounding bases and fortifications. It is capable of spewing out an incredible number of "7.62x51mm" type of ammunition. The M247 turret makes quick work of anything foolish enough to get in its path. The main gun is placed on a fold-able tripod or bipod for quick relocation and setup in the field. Though it lacks shielding, it can be moved from location to location by a single Marine.
