English term or phrase: the sixty
Di tengah perang Vietnam, sekelompok pasukan Amerika sedang berjalan kaki, tiba2 diserang. Komandan memerintahkan mereka untuk merunduk dan berlindung. Komandan juga memerintahkan untuk mengambilkan 'the sixty'.

Get the sixty! Get that pig up here, God damn it!

Apa ya kira2 artinya 'sixty' di sini? Apakah itu semacam senjata perang atau kendaraan perang?

Trims.

Indonesian translation:senapan mesin M60
Explanation:
During the Vietnam War, the M60 received the nickname "The Pig" due to its bulky size. Vietnam's tropical climate harshly affected weapons, and the M60 was no exception. Its light weight led to it being easily damaged and critical parts like the bolt and operating rod wore out quickly.
