The 7.62mm M-60 saw widespread use with U.S. and allied forces during the latter half of the 20th Century as a light machine gun. It could also be mounted on vehicles.

In Fallout Tactics, a new type of M60 appeared, with a higher weight. It is a decently rare gun, and isn't as good as the more imposing, stronger, and longer-ranged M249 SAW. The higher ST requirement for the M60 really dampens its effectiveness as well.

Behind the scenes

Introduced in 1957, it served in the Vietnam War as a squad automatic weapon (SAW) with many U.S. units. The M60 has been nicknamed the Pig by the Marines.
