Looks amazingly soft recoiling & controllable. The barrel changes are damn impressive, too.

I'm not sure a pool of water counts as 'maritime'. No matter how idyllic and enchanted it might be.

Maybe their new U-boats run on baking soda.

A replacement for the M240 nobody wants at 3X the price????

It's a replacement for the MG3.

A better comparison would be the Mk. 48 which is the US designation for the lightweight 7.62 FN Minimi.

ETA: the line between SAW, LMG and GPMG blurs further

I like.

Wow that barell never moved

I don't think I have ever seen a HK factory video thatr doesn't inlcude either someone coming out of water with a MG, dunking said MG in water etc.

Otherwise, cool video. Lack of recoil is impressive

Must have a hell of a brake.
Link Posted: 3/11/2013 4:45:04 PM EDT
Maybe the retard at USMC acquisitions thought he was buying this to replace the SAW

Although I still prefer the MG3.

It was not meant to be a replacement for the 240, more or less as a competitor to it for the German Army as they are trying to phase out the MG3.

Thing is like a freakin' sewing machine.

Never heard of this machinegun before, thanks for posting.

Water cooled barrel is awesome..
Link Posted: 3/11/2013 5:16:26 PM EDT
That's a lot of firepower
Link Posted: 3/11/2013 5:17:05 PM EDT
Is it an optical illusion, or is the barrel reciprocating?

bah, que the not impressed girl.

Looks like it to me in parts, but I can't tell for sure. Maybe part of the recoil mitigation?

ETA: Just watched it again full screen. I don't think it is.

2 kilos heavier than the PKP.

Still not quite sure how I feel about not being able to change the barrel and the whole forced air cooled thing. I think I would stick with the PKM.

Supercool tool of oppression, comrade.

Yeah, I watched a couple of more times and it looks like the receiver and barrel are reacting to the recoil in one piece.

I'm digging this.

As a gesture of solidarity with Germany, I'll take some of their soon to be obsolete MG3s off their hands and make a donation of $100 per gun to the charity of their choice.

Looked really easy to charge. Look at the position of his hand.

SEALs will be all over that shit. My German is rusty, but I think they said each gun came with a case of hair gel, a bottle of spray tan, and a pair of Oakleys..

Whoa very cool

Wow. That was awesome.

Every time I wanted to turn it off they pulled out a new trick.
