C2 Light Machine Gun

Adopted at the same time as the FN C1 Assault Rifle, the C2 was the same weapon, with automatic fire capability, a heavier barrel, and a fold out bipod replacing the fore stock (with wooden hand grips for firing the weapon from the shoulder). The C2 fired the same 7.62mm NATO cartridge as the FN, either from the standard 20 round magazine for the C1, or from the intended 30 round magazines, which were of course longer.

Fort Lewis, Washington in the early 1980s
