In the video below, Russian door gunners live fire with PKP machine guns and AK74’s. What else do you need to know?

    That belt fed has a serious rate of fire!

    Helicopter Hog Hunts did it better.

    I want more immigrants from Russia and not shithole countries like Haiti and Africa.

      Shit hole is goddamn right. All those countries are absolute shit stains.

    2. avatar Mark N. says:

      Haiti is such a shit hole that not even the Dominican Republic will take their refugees. Lat I heard, the hurricane made hardly a dent, since they haven’t gotten the mess cleaned up from the earthquake in 2010.

        I have heard if you look at the satellite imagery of the Haiti-DR border, the difference is obvious – Haiti has been heavily deforested by their poor :

          Have a Dominican friend. He tells me for various historical reasons Dominicans are often lighter skinned than Haitians. But the joke on the island is its because they don’t have any shade in Haiti (no trees).

      Only if they vote to reinstate the giggle switch.

      Poor Donald.
      Granted, those countries are $htholes – why else would they be trying to come here?
      It’s kind of like saying how funny-looking someone’s kids are – doesn’t matter how true it may be, some things just shouldn’t be uttered when there’s a microphone around.
      His point, I think, was getting back to a merit-based admission system rather than one based on where a prospective immigrant is from – and he’s right.

      1. avatar Mark N. says:

        There wasn’t a mic around–someone (with a D after his name) spilled the beans. It was a private meeting in the Oval Office.

        I have worked with plenty of Haitians over the past say 25 years or so. I’ve heard plenty of Haitians call Haiti a shit hole, hell hole and worse. If Trump did call it a shit hole, so what? That’s exactly what it is. And the people who don’t like it are the same ones trying to turn this place into a shit hole.

      Lure them in with promises of free kvass, techno music, and Adidas track suits.

      Emigrants from Russia vary in quality quite a bit. I remember back in ’98 or so, a guy named “Soltis” chased his wife around Sacramento with a knife. I was embedded into Russian community in Norcal at the time and everyone was rolling their eyes and asking “where do they even find idiots like that”. I’m sure they aren’t asking that anymore.

      Why would anyone emigrate from a wonderful land of full auto AKs to a decadent imperialist capital pig dog nation?

    One of the few things I really miss from 40 something years ago – using M60 out of a Huey

    Good fun on range not so much with stuff coming back.

    Couple things, is that yellow tank the fuel tank? It fills from the outside. Nothing like using a sealed container full of an extremely combustible fluid to stop tracer rounds. Second, that belt gun has a high rate of fire but not much of a heat shield on it. And last but most important, why doesn’t the US have choppers like the Russians. They can haul troops, provide support for those troops, but they also have rockets where they can circle back around and just drop the building on top of the enemy dead.

    1. avatar Joe in San Antonio says:

      Have you seen an Air Weapons Team doing work? It’s a thing to behold. We don’t need intergrated helicopters that do everything sufficiently when we have purpose built platforms that excel at their task.

      1. avatar California Richard says:

        Indeed,… but it still tickles the imagination thinking of a heavy troop bird like a chinook or stallion with rocket pods. Just seeing an AH-60 (S-70) battlehawk makes my head turn sideways… https://youtu.be/PUJja7V5VGw

    2. avatar Pete Zaitcev says:

      Ironically, PKP does have the heat shield, and in fact it’s probably the only machine gun in inventory of a major military today that features forced induction cooling, just like Lewis gun did in WWI. It otherwise is PKM mechanically. But because of the forced cooling, the barrel swapping function is deleted.

  6. “Shitholes,” by definition, produce refugees. So, other than “speaking truth” to PC power, how did the president misspeak?

    Looks fun, but what are they shooting at?

    1. avatar California Richard says:

      If they run, they’re VC…. If they stand still they’re well disciplined VC.

    2. avatar Big Bill says:

      ‘Yotes.

    3. avatar Pete Zaitcev says:

      The proving ground has some targets installed. However, the video omits the scoring and all such boring parts. The targets are made from plywood and have numbers on them.

  9. avatar anonymoose says:

    This needs to be dubbed over with TF2 Heavy quotes.

    Also, “ANYONE WHO RUNS IS A CHECHEN. ANYONE WHO STANDS STILL IS A WELL-DISCIPLINED CHECHEN.”

    1. avatar California Richard says:

      “ANYONE WHO RUNS IS A CHECHEN. ANYONE WHO STANDS STILL IS A WELL-DISCIPLINED CHECHEN.” …. damnit!! You beat me to it

      1. avatar anonymoose says:

        I was worried someone would beat me to it.

    There is a whole lot of helicopter conveniently arranged so an over-eager soldier could perforate it from those firing ports!
