Abstract:

In small arms experimentation it is desirable to conduct experiments using an actual fielded threat weapon system whenever possible. On occasion, however, this may not be possible, and a surrogate must be substituted. In these experiments a platform was designed to simulate the 2-round burst of the M2 .50-caliber Browning machine gun BMG. The 2-round-burst cyclic rate was achieved by using 2 Mann barrels, fired off of a standard Frankford Arsenal rest in conjunction with a time delay generator.
