Never seen (dispite searching) info on how the roles are decided at Fireteam/Section level. By that i mean who decides who is issued with the SA80A2, the Minimi or the LSW? According the the Army website each 4 man fireteam has a Minimi, so does an infantryman get to choose if he wants to use it or does it get assigned by somebody else? The Minimi is a weapon that interests me and should i pass selection i wouldnt mind putting myself forward for training to use one if its possible to do so. I thought the LSW was the fireteam support weapon but it seems the Minimi has replaced it in that role because of its belt feed system so is the LSW used much? If so how many are issued per section? Thanks.
