mitrailleuse fixe de (calibre) 7,62 mm à usage général

mounted = montée, ici fixe (non amovible si vous préférez).

général purpose = à usage général, à tout faire, non spécialisé.

7,62 mm = calibre de la mitrailleuse (6/20 de pouce). Calibre peut être sous-entendu en français comme en anglais.

machinegun = mitrailleuse

Le fait qu'elle soit "mounted" implique qu'elle est fixe.

Je vous renvoie à deux sites, surtout celui du glossaire de Jane qui seraient excellents, n'était leur profond militarisme...
