MAC-58 machine gun

The MAC-58 is an example of a heavy machine gun.

A heavy machine gun is a class of arms that are usually weapon designs in their own right, or may be scaled-up variants of a general purpose machine gun.[1] These weapons may be chambered for cartridges .50 caliber and larger.


Heavy machine guns are generally used for penetrating cover and anti-materiel purposes. They can be used in an anti-personnel role as well, and have very long effective ranges for use.
