You still are not finished with the basic load computation for this type of ammunition. There is the other
machine gun that uses 7.62-millimeter ammunition (see Line L92352 in Figure 9). It is the M219, a component
of a tank. There are 58 full-tracked combat tanks authorized (see Line V13101 in Figure 9), each with one M219
machine gun (see Figure 10). The Basic Load Requirements sheet in Figure 6 shows 7,500 rounds of 7.26-
millimeter ammunition authorized.
After you make the calculation for the tank requirement, add that amount to the rounds authorized for the light
flexible M60 machine gun to get the total authorization for 7.62-millimeter ammunition.
Your computation of the basic load authorization for cartridge, 7.62 millimeter is complete.
