The Browning .50 cal machine gun was originally produced by FN Herstal.
FN Herstal was the first company to propose a Quick Change Barrel (QCB) system thus marking the end of tedious and difficult headspace adjustments.
- A Reliable QCB System
The FN QCB system allows the barrel change to be carried out by one person, reduces exposure time to enemy fire and returns the weapon quickly to operational condition after barrel change out.
- Effect on the Target
The M2HB-QCB™ is capable of firing explosive incendiary rounds and a full range of ball, tracer, armor piercing and incendiary cartridges.
- One Weapon for Many Roles
Heavy fire support for the infantry: mounted on the M3 tripod, to defeat light armored vehicles, bunkers, buildings, etc.
Main armament in turrets
or as a coaxial machine gun
