AA52 French GPMG for the cold war and beyond

The experience of WW2 made it obvious to the French that a modular GPMG was a far more sensible concept than the role specific MGs and LMGs used until 1940 and that the advances in firearms manufacturing provided an ideal opportunity to fully embrace the concept. The fruit of the project came in the shape of the AA52, a simple and sturdy GPMG that is still in service in a limited role to this day on land, sea and air (ANF1 version in 308).
