|«||The L111A1 is a British designation for the M2 .50 caliber machine gun. It is a very versatile weapon which can be used effectively against infantry, light armored vehicles, slow aircrafts and small boats.
|Type||Heavy Machine Gun|
The L111A1 is an air-cooled, belt fed weapon that fires from a closed bolt and is chambered to fire the .50 BMG round.
It feeds from 100-round belt boxes, and has a fire rate of ~ 545 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of 930 m/s. The L111A1 features a top-mounted ACOG scope that has a magnification strength of 2x. It has an effective firing range of up to 1,500 metres, and can be mounted onto either lowered or raised tripods.
The L111A1 has the same ammunition capacity as the M2 HMG, with the total amount of rounds varying based on the platform that it's mounted on. Static L111A1s for example, always feed from 100-round belt boxes and have a further three more boxes to spare. L111A1s fitted onto Jackals on the other hand, carry five belt boxes instead.
As the L111A1 is simply the British Army's designation for the M2, it shares the same strengths and drawbacks as the M2; namely an average rate of fire, as well as mediocre accuracy against targets beyond 1,200 metres.
The sole advantage of the L111A1 is that all models are fitted with a magnified scope which makes aiming at distant targets slightly easier, as opposed to the M2 which limits its gunner to using ironsights only. In all other aspects however, it remains completely identical to the M2 in every way.
NOTE: L111A1s can technically load the same 250-round belts used by the American HMMWV-mounted M3P, though no British HMGs - static or vehicle-mounted, retain access to them by default.

L111A1s feed from one type of "magazine":
Standard belt box loaded with 12.7 mm (.50 cal) ball ammunition.
Every fourth round fired will consist of a visible red-coloured tracer. Only the last five rounds of the belt are exclusively tracer rounds.
- The in-game L111A1 inherits all of its config values from the M2. Only the weapon's name and firing sound are altered.
- Its internal config entry also refers to the L111A1 as the "L2A1" instead.
