Abstract : A developmental ammunition and feed guide for the M-60 machine gun mounted in UH-1 helicopters in Vietnam. The items had been requested under the ENSURE procedures. There is no requirement for the lightweight 100 round ammunition tray evaluated. Since the lightweight ammunition guide evaluated corrected the failure-to-feed problems that occurred frequently with the machine guns, there is a requirement for it. The ammunition tray evaluated should not be adopted for use in RVN. The ammunition guide evaluated should be adopted for use by UH-1 door gunners where required. (Author)
