Mini-FOT LogoThe following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.
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.

The M60 is a Big Gun in Fallout Tactics.


The M60 in Fallout Tactics differs quite a bit from the one in Fallout 2. It is an uncommon gun, but is inferior to the more damaging and longer-ranged M249 SAW, only having an edge in magazine size. The higher Strength requirement for the M60 is also a bit of a buzz kill. This gun is poorly implemented in the game and should be ignored, much like the M-14 rifle.


Behind the scenesEdit

Introduced in 1957, it served in the Vietnam War as a general purpose machine gun with many U.S. units. The M60 was nicknamed the Pig by the U.S. Troops. While effective, certain parts were discovered to be poorly designed and/or manufactured, leading to reliability problems.
