Two Marines with Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group operate a Gunslinger Package for Advanced Convoy Security system aboard Camp Lejeune, N.C., Aug. 15, 2012. Fifty troops with CLR-2 participated in a two-week course where they learned how to effectively operate the system. The GPACS system provides easy communication between machine gunners, better weapon control and can be mounted on a Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement. The system is equipped with night vision and thermal capabilities, and is designed to carry the M249 light machine gun, M240 medium machine gun, or Mark II .50 caliber machine gun.
