POTD: Rearming the Wildcat Helicopter

Photo Of The Day and these soldiers are carrying the ammunition belt to the Browning M3M on-board the AgustaWestland AW159 Wildcat helicopter. How long do you think the belt is? How much do you think it weighs?

The AgustaWestland AW159 Wildcat, previously known as the Lynx Wildcat, is one of the helicopters in the British military.

Members of 1 Regiment Army Air Corps are seen here with ammunition preparing to re-arm a Wildcat helicopter a short distance away whilst on Op PELEDA in Lithuania.
