    POTD: The Browning M2 Minigun?

    Photo Of The Day: Once upon a time we used to run a mini-series called Minigun Monday. Well, this one isn’t a Minigun and never made it to our series, but it’s easy to get fooled. Upon closer look, it is a Browning M2 .50 BMG Heavy Machine Gun with a blank firing adapter mounted.

    The U.S. Marine above is with the Marine Rotational Force-Europe 19.1, and he’s providing security from the top of a Bandvagn 206, the famous all-terrain carrier made in Sweden.

    A U.S. Marine with Marine Rotational Force-Europe 19.1, Marine Forces Europe and Africa, provides security during Exercise Northern Wind 19 in northern Sweden, March 22, 2019. This exercise focuses on enhancing Marines’ proficiency with cold-weather equipment while enhancing basic winter-warfare skills in cold-weather environments.
