The M249 machine gun is the American adaptation of the Minimi, one of FN Herstal's biggest commercial successes. Designed in the 1970s, the FN Minimi (for Mini Machine Gun) is a lightweight 5.56x45mm machine gun, whose role is to increase the firepower of squads in combat. Its gas-borrowed, wedge-breech design allows it to operate with the M27 disintegrating ammunition belt, which has a capacity of 100-200 rounds ; Moreover, the FN Minimi is one of the few FMs that can use STANAG magazines. Adopted by the US Army in 1984, then by the USMC the following year, several version of the M249 were subsequently produced, including the famous FN M249 Para, a compact model for airborne units with a short barrel and a retractable tubular stock; it is also the most recognisable and one of the most widely used versions. Today, the M249 is well known to video game fans, with notable appearances in licenses such as Counter Strike, Arma, Call of Duty, Squad and Player Unknown: Battleground.
