  Ammunition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The supply of ammunition are either for guns forming the movable armament or for guns placed in permanent positions.
Infantry machine guns and rifles may improve their ability against aircraft by utilising tracer ammunition, to allow the aimer to better gauge the lead aim necessary to strike his target.
Naval gun ammunition of WWII vintage came in two main varieties, armour piercing shells to attack hardened warships or high explosive incendiary shells (with point detonating fuzes to start fires on ships, or mechanical time fuzes designed to fragment and create clouds of shrapnel to defeat aircraft).

 M60 machine gun - Free net encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The M60 is effective up to 1,100 meters when firing at an area target and mounted on a tripod; up to 800 meters when firing at an area target using the integral bipod; up to 600 meters when firing at a point target; and up to 200 meters when firing at a moving point target.
The M60 was among the lightest 7.62 mm machine guns of the era, and lighter than the M240 that is slowly supplanting it.
In 1991, the Belgian-designed FN MAG machine gun, designated the M240 in U.S. service, was adopted by the Marines as the M240G as a replacement for M60s used by infantry, though the M240 had already been used as a co-axial and pintle-mounted machine gun since the 1980s by the USMC.

 Saving Private Ryan: MG 42 machine gun
Unlike the Americans, the German Army did not employ light, medium or heavy machine guns in World War II, but instead standardized on one machine gun, the Maschinengewehr 42, which was the successor to the more complicated and difficult to manufacture MG 34.
When used by an infantryman the MG 42 was equipped with a bipod and was considered to be in light machine gun mode.
It could be configured for heavy machine gun mode by mounting it on a tripod and fitting it with long-range sights.

 Air Force Develops a "Phaser Gun"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The US Air Force has introduced a laser-based weapon that looks like something out of "Ghost in the Shell" but will provide soldiers with a non-lethal method for controlling crowds and stopping attackers.
The gun, developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory's Directed Energy Directorate and about the size and weight of an M60 machine gun, is called the Personnel Halting and Stimulation Response, or (drum roll) PHaSR.
A captain with the Air Force told Stars and Stripes, the official military newspaper, that the choice of the name was no accident; it was done in homage to "Star Trek."
