The LSW was developed to be an LMG for continuous suppressive fire. However, it is far less useful for that role when compared to other modern LMGs due to the fact that it uses a 30-round magazine, with no capability to use a drum magazine without a lot of modification, and using a belt feed is near to impossible without a complete redesign of the weapon. Of course, some other LMGs can use 30-round magazines, but they usually can also be fitted with a larger form of magazine.
Anyway, the loadout of an infantry section.
An infantry section consists of two fireteams, "Charlie" and "Delta." Usually, Charlie consists of a Corporal (who is also in charge of the section as a whole) and three Privates, while Delta consists of a Lance-Corporal (who is second-in-command) and another three Privates. Of course, this is all subject to the situation. For instance, if the corporal were to be killed, the Lance-Corporal would take charge of Charlie, and a Private would fill in as 2IC of the section.
The weapons loadout of each fireteam is almost always identical. The commander of the fireteam would have an L85A2 assault rifle, then one man would be armed with an L85A2 with an underslung grenade launcher, another man would be armed with L86A2 LSW, and finally one man would have an L110A1 LMG.
The L110A1 is the British designation for the Belgian FN Minimi's "paratrooper" variant, the difference being that the paratrooper variant has a shorter barrel and a collapsible stock.
BTW I'm pretty sure we use the Minimi with a 200-round box magazine to make up for the lower ammunition capacity of the LSW. Could be wrong though. If we do use 30-round mags with it then I have no idea why we have them.
Effectively, the Minimi has replaced the LSW as the suppressing weapon of the section, as the LSW is now filling the role of DMR for the section.
"You think wrong. Let me fix that for you."
