Background Edit

The PKM is a general purpose machine gun designed in the Soviet Union. The PKM machine gun was introduced in the 1960s and replaced the SGM and RPD machine guns in Soviet service. PKM can be used as a light anti-aircraft weapon when it is put on an AA mount. One feature typical to Soviet machine guns is that the standard model feeds from the right and ejects its rounds via an ejection port on the left side of the weapon, as opposed to the usual right side ejection port seen in most western machine guns. Ammunition: 7.62mm x 54R Box
