The Minimi light machine gun was developed by the famous Belgian company FN, in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Mass production began in 1982 in Belgium and at about the same time it has been adopted by the US Armed forces as the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW). Since its introduction Minimi has seen widespread service, and numerous variations have been developed.
Conflict: Denied Ops Edit
Minimi is Lang's main weapon throughout the game, appearing as "5.56mm LMG". Its first upgrade is a 40mm grenade launcher, then a 200-round belt, then a rapid-fire mechanism, which increases the rate-of-fire by 25% and finally a custom stock which decreases recoil (almost to zero) and makes the weapon more accurate.
