The L7A2 GPMG is the British designation for the Belgian made MAG general purpose machine gun, adopted in the early 1960s. An automatic, air-cooled open-bolt machine gun with an integrated folding bipod, it fires the full sized 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge at a respectable 700 rounds per minute, ideal for target suppression and damaging light vehicles. Due to its weight, unsupported fire is not recommended.

  • The FN MAG lends itself to a defensive or at least stationary play style, falling between the more portable automatic rifles and the emplaced heavy machine guns.
  • All variants of the weapon have a deployable bipod.
  • The FN MAG round box holds 75 rounds. The PKM round box on the other hand holds 100 rounds.


  • Like its ex-Soviet Russian rival, the PKM, the FN MAG is very difficult to control while shooting because of its heavy caliber. As a result, it is recommended to deploy the bipod before firing.




  • Abbreviation meanings:
    • The M in "M240B" stands for Model, and 240 is the model number.
    • The L in "L7A2" stands for Land Service, 7 stands for the model number, A stands for Mark, and 2 stands for the type of Mark.
