The M249 Squad Automatic Weapon is a light machine gun designed by Fabrique National de Herstal (part of FN Minimi) that originates from Belgium. The M249 SAW began production in the 1970's, and hasn't changed much since. The M249 (the only variant) is the variant used by the ZX Clan.
The M249 is one metre and forty-one millimetres (forty-one inches) long and weighs a solid seven and a half kilograms (seventeen pounds). The machine gun uses 5.56x45mm NATO rounds that are fed to a side port on the gun by a hundred-round linked belt. The rounds are pumped through an open bolt by compressed gas. The M249 SAW light machine gun is equipped with a bipod to improve suppressive fire.
