Default The New German Machine Gun

Very impressive and stable platform. It can be fired from virtually any position including standing. Water apparently doesn't affect it at all. Virtually no muzzle rise with a 7.62 round.
Notice almost no recoil as well. Wish I knew what they or saying..

Those don't look like 30 cal. holes in the paper at 3.24 into the vid.

I think it's something like if we had this mother in 1941 things might be different today.

Not a gun expert here, but I think it's interesting it appears to be based on the WWII German gun that, I believe, was the basis for the M-60, right?

It's just a modern medium machine gun, they are all very similar and do the same thing. Here's our M240B.
When he shots the water that is a good example of how far apart the bullets can be, and why we fire in controlled aimed burst.

Reminds me of our 249 in a lot of ways.

Impressive shot group!
