David Forrest of AMCOM’s Maintenance Operations Procedures and Prototype facility (MOPP Shop) reassembles a M3P 50 caliber machine gun that was once used on an Avenger air defense system. As the Army restructures and takes out of service the Avengers, these machine guns are being reconditioned and reassembled, quality checked, and test fired at Test Area 1 and then mounted on a Kiowa Warrior helicopter.
