Used by French troops since 1952, the AA-52 was designed after the country's experiences in Indochina.
The AA-52 can be used as a LMG with a bipod or HMG with a tripod. When used with a tripod for continuous fire, the gun is fitted with a heavier barrel. In the LMG configuration, the AA-52 is a relatively light weapon to carry.
