The buffered softmount (L47A1) is a light weight buffered machine gun mount designed to fit either the Universal Gun Mount (L20A4) which is fitted via a folding interface (FIM) to the slewing ring of a number of wheeled fighting vehicles, or directly to the ‘A’ frame interface on many protected and lightweight ring mounts.

The GPMG softmount comprises 2 main assemblies; a detachable ammunition box holder and the weapon softmount (complete with its pivoting G3 spigot and a longitudinal flight bar that connects to the Traverse and Elevation Mechanism (T&E Mech) of the Universal Gun Mount).

Where required, the 5.56mm FN `Minimi` Light Machine Gun (LMG) can be fitted directly to this mount without the need for a dedicated adaptor.
