  • Famous sniper in Vietnam War history, Carlos Norman Hatchcock using an attached 10x Unertl Scope on M2HB instead of his Winchester M70. He scored a longest confirmed kill of 2.500 yards, making him debuted as one of several sniper that using high-calibre machine gun for sniping role. Later, a .50 BMG considered useful and became a standard for Anti-Material Sniper and Carbine role such as Barrett M82A1.[3]
  • Soviet equivalent of M2HB was DShK, uses 12x108mm cartridge that used by Soviet for Anti-Air purpose and infantry support in WWII and Cold War. While the DShK was replaced by NSV and Kord 6P50, DShK still used by several separatists and rebel in nowadays conflict. These days, both M2HB and DShK was popularly equipped in technical truck and several Main Battle Tanks.
  • M85 HMG was planned to replace M2HB for MBT and several APVs, however due the complexity of the M85 mechanism and unable to fit in M1 Abrams tank, thus making M85 rendered unreliable and scrapped from U.S Armament List.[4]
  • M3 Browning, an improvement of M2HB announced during WWII. Its features electronical feeding belt mechanism that increases its Rate of Fire up to 1200 RPM. M3 Browning mainly used in aircraft, or as anti-aircraft and several naval defense emplacement.
  • Some of M3 Half-Track was converted into Mobile Anti-Aircraft emplacement by putting an M45 Quadmount(4 M2HB that can operated by single person), popularly dubbed as 'Krautmower' or 'Meat Chopper'. Maxson Corporation decided to develop 4 gun in single turret because the fire rate of M2HB itself(450-550 RPM) considered too slow for knock down German Bomber, and the development was proved effective during the war. M45 Quadmount became less effective against high-speed fighter and jet-powered bomber when cold war started, however they still useful to suppress enemy infantry in combat, especially until Vietnam War.[5]
  • M2HB has a highest damage among all MGs.
