  • 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 large-caliber machine gun for sniping role. Later, a .50 BMG considered useful and became a standard for Anti-Material Sniper and large-caliber Carbine role such as Barrett M82A1.[3]
    • Just before Hatchcock scored his first kill using scoped M2HB, it was adopted by US Army in Chinese Line during Korean War where he attached a same scope which Hatchcock used it later.[4]
  • Soviet equivalent of M2HB was DShK, chambered with 12x108mm cartridge which 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 on 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.[5]
  • M3 Browning, an improvement of M2HB announced during WWII. Its features electronical feeding belt mechanism, modified barrel extension, and lightened the bolt that increases its Rate of Fire up to 1200 RPM. The iron sight on M3 Browning doesn't included, because it mainly used for aircraft and gun sight required for aiming. Generally, M3 parts are cheaper over M2 and comes in better condition.
  • Just before WWII broke out, U.S Cavalry conducted an experiment of portable M2 where the the original spade grip has been replaced with semi-auto pistol grip, added shoulder pad, bipod, and equipped with M1 Telescopic Sight. However, due the heavier weight over the original M2HB has from the modification, the experiment of portable M2 was abandoned only before U.S involved on WWII. It so called 'M2 Anti-Mechanization'.[6]
    • Considering the mechanism of experimental M2 was semi-auto, it should be presumed if it would serve as sniper role although its performance is questionable because of its weight.
  • During WWII, M3 Half-Track was converted into Mobile Anti-Aircraft emplacement by putting an M45 Quadmount(4 M2HB that can operated by single person, known as M16A2 MGMC), 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 Dive Bomber, and the development was proved extremely effective during the war. M45 Quadmount became less effective against high-speed fighter and jet-powered bomber in 50's, however they still useful to suppress enemy infantry in combat, especially until Vietnam War. Each of them held 200 rounds in M2 "Tombstone" Ammo box.[7]
  • M2HB has a highest base damage among all MGs.
