The L110A2, Light Machine Gun (LMG) was developed from the Minimi Light Machine Gun following the capability gap experienced on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The LMG is a belt-fed suppression weapon that provides an RAF Regiment section commander the ability to employ sustained suppressive fire onto an objective out to 300m. Coupled with the LSW, this is a considerable increase in the Sections effective suppressive fire power.
