The L111A1, Heavy Machine Gun (HMG) provides integral close-range support from a ground mount tripod or a vehicle cupola.

The performance of the HMG has been enhanced with a new ‘softmount’ (to limit recoil and improve accuracy) and a quick-change barrel.

The HMG provides the RAF Regiment flight and section with increased capability at greater ranges (1,500-2,000m) when support from Close Air Support or mortars is not available.
