this is the standard issue for the british army. there are normally 2 per section or 8 men.it is basically the SA80 but it has an extended barrel for more accuracy and it has a bipod for even more accuracy.it can be semi automatic or fully automatic and you can empty a magazine of 30 rounds on automatic in around 3 seconds. the magazine is located behind the pistol grip and it has a SUSAT sight (Sight Unit Small Arms Trilux) for better viewage that an ironsight.
the LSW ( light support weapon) is a good all round weapon and with an adverage of 28 bullets per magazine and around 8 magazines per soldier it can be used as a support weapon ( as in its name). It is being ober taken by the minime. The minime is a small version of the GPMG ( general purpose machine gun)
