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

    • 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

    • 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?

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

  3. 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.”

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