The XM260 is a belt-fed, general-purpose machine gun that is made by Winfield Heavy Industries. It is designed to replace the FN M240/MAG general-purpose machine gun in countries that used said weapons, most notably in the United States, where it competed in a program alongside several other weapons. Although it lost in the U.S. Military's M240 replacement competition, the design was then sent to other countries that wanted to replace their MAG platform.
