This variant of the original Mickey, dubbed the ‘Light Mickey’ by the Marines, was created specifically for the United States Marine Corps. Its open-topped turret makes it much more comfortable to operate in some of the environments that these guys fight in. As with Allied troops across the planet, the Marines love this machine. It’s resilient, easy to operate, and packs a lot of punch. Since its entry into service with the USMC, the Light Mickey has been adopted by other branches of the Allied armies fighting in hot climates.
