These look great. Just one comment … the M240 GPMG did not replace the M60 GPMG in the US infantry units until the early 1990s. The 240 was used as a coaxial MG in the M60A3 and the M1 starting in the early 1980s.

Yep, that's my understanding as well.

M60s through the end of the Cold War.

Need a prone M60 gunner.

Can't speak for other units, but the 10th Mountain Division had the M249 in '88/89. I think the 9th ID had them earlier.

1989 was the end of the Cold War, by many peoples' calendars.

1991 for the fall of the Soviet Union.

82nd still had the M-60. Always the last to get anything.
