Browning M2HB Heavy Machine Gun

The Browning M2HB heavy machine gun appears mounted on M1, M1A1, & M1A2 Abrams tanks, M113 Armored Personnel Carriers, and Humvees. On the the original and A1 versions of the Abrams, the M2HB is on a powered mount operated from the Commander's station inside the turret known as the Commander's Weapon Station, enabling the Tank Commander to aim and fire the .50 cal without having to expose himself to hostile fire. The other vehicles however use manually-operated M2HB's.

M240 Machine Gun

The M240 machine gun appears mounted on M1, M1A1, & M1A2 Abrams as a secondary machine gun to the heavier M2HB Browning with an M240D mounted at the Loader's hatch atop the turret and an M240C in a 'coaxial' mount parallel to the main 120mm gun, though only the latter of the two is useable as the player can only man the Gunner, Tank Commander, and Driver's stations in the Abrams. The M240C also appears as a coaxial weapon on M2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles and M60A3 Patton tanks. The M240D also serves as defensive armament on NPC UH-60 Blackhawk and CH-47 Chinook helicopters.
