In Iran, Rifleman Goreng Nassang further distinguishes himself. Back with his unit (the 1/7th Duke of Edinburgh's Own Gurkha Rifles) outside of Bandar Abbas, he successfully hits a Soviet captain and his radio operator with his trusty GPMG at a range of over 1600 yards.
That made me smile. In ROTC, the National Guard, and on active duty, I sometimes used the M60 as an ad hoc sniper rifle. It's ROF is so slow that it's easy to squeeze off single shots accurately.
