Presenting The M249 Squad Automatic Weapon HD Professional Sound Effects Library, a multi-channel collection of 62 Broadcast WAV files recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz. The machine gun was recorded close up, medium and distant. You get a simple but wide selection of perspectives to choose from. Single and burst shots with multiple variations are included within the 62 WAV files. If you would like to create your own combinations the individual source material is included with minimal processing and clean up. The multi-channel wav files are time aligned in mono and stereo. Also included are custom combinations created here in the studio so if you are under a tight deadline you can just grab your favorite takes and lay them into your timeline and with just a few tweaks you are done.
This collection of sounds have been sitting in the archive for a few years and I’m very excited to finally make them available. I’ve used them on a few projects and they have performed perfectly. I hope you enjoy this collection of sounds as much as I have. -Frank
The M249 Squad Automatic Weapon, or SAW, is an individually portable, gas operated, magazine or disintegrating metallic link-belt fed, light machine gun with fixed headspace and quick change barrel feature. The M249 engages point targets out to 800 meters, firing the NATO standard 5.56mm cartridge. The SAW forms the basis of firepower for the fire team. The gunner has the option of using 30-round M16 magazines or linked ammunition from pre-loaded 200-round plastic magazines.
The SAW filled the void created by the retirement of the Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) during the 1950s because interim automatic weapons (e.g. M-14E2/M16A1) had failed as viable “base of fire” weapons. The M249, is the American adaptation of the Belgian FN Minimi, a light machine gun manufactured by the Belgian company FN Herstal.
