The 5mm round is an ammunition type found in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Van Buren, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76. It is used by various weapons, such as the minigun.

BackgroundEdit

A high velocity round designed for assault rifles, the intermediate 5mm M134 cartridge[1] has been replaced by the more powerful 5.56mm round in assault rifles.[2] However, it found a new life as linked, belt fed ammunition for man-portable miniguns on the battlefield, specifically the M134 cartridge and 7.62x51 millimeter rounds.[3] It has also been retained as the ammunition of choice for paratrooper assault carbines, due to its light weight and portability.[4]
