The Danish Defence Forces (Forsvaret) have selected the US Ordnance M60E6 machine gun (MG) to replace its ageing LMG m/62 (Rheinmetall MG3) 7.62 mm squad support weapons, it was announced on 7 March.

 

The M60E6 is the latest generation of the M60, first adopted by the US Army in 1957. The US weapon was selected over the Heckler & Koch HK121 I ('Infanterie'), a squad support variant of the German HK121 general purpose machine gun, following a trial programme.

 

The delivery of the first M60E6 MGs, to be called LMG m/14 in Danish service, is expected by the end of 2014.
