As an aside, the RAF use M60's on the ramp of their Chinooks. It's something to do with the M60 being certified for the Chinook. To use something else would mean testing and certification.

I think the pintle mounts are a good clue that the Neptune Spear guys wouldn't lug around the 60 or GPMG. Even their M60E3s are still pretty heavy, and the M249 is heavier yet. I don't remember any mention of those weapons being carried on the raid, heavier support fire possibly being available from the helos. That's just my WAG.

in the no easy day book Mark Owen states that they didn't bring support weapons because they were going in and coming out fast
