7.62mm General Purpose Machine Gun

Description

In the infantry role the GPMG is designed to serve as either a Light Machine Gun (LMG) or as a Sustained Fire Machine Gun (SFMG). In the LMG role it is fired from a bipod, and in the SFMG mode from a tripod. The gun may also be fired from pedestal mounts on various vehicles, boats, etc.

The Turret/Vehicle Mounted and Coaxial Armament Guns are designed for use in AFV’s. The guns may be quickly converted for use in the ground role by fitting a butt, bipod and barrel, which are carried in the vehicle.

The Coaxial version is mounted alongside the main armament in the mantlet. The rate of fire is stabilised at 625 RMP to 725 RPM. The muzzle is fitted with a combined flash hider / compensator.
