The 7.62mm M-60 saw widespread use with U.S. and allied forces during the latter half of the 20th Century as a light machine gun. It could also be mounted on vehicles.”
The M60 in 'Fallout Tactics' differs quite a bit from 'Fallout 2'. It is a uncommon gun, but is inferior to the more damaging and longer-ranged M249 SAW, only having a edge in magazine size. The higher ST requirement for the M60 is also a bit of a buzz kill. This gun is poorly implemented in the game and should be ignored, much like the M-14 rifle.

Behind the scenesEdit
Introduced in 1957, it served in the Vietnam War as a general purpose machine gun with many U.S. units. The M60 was nicknamed the Pig by the U.S. Troops. While effective, certain parts were discovered to be poorly designed and/or manufactured, leading to reliability problems.
