Russian “Kord” spotted near Damascus


Recently, new photos have appeared on the Web, which depict fighters of a Christian formation with a Russian-made 12,7-mm machine gun.

For the first time, these machine guns were spotted in Syria in the 2014 year during fighting in the Jobar region on the northeastern outskirts of Damascus.

It was already noted that the “Kord” 6Т19 perfectly proved itself during the fighting in the conditions of the city.



“With it, you can knock out enemy shooters at a distance of almost two kilometers. Powerful armor-piercing incendiary bullets are used, from which even brick and concrete walls will not save, ”the author of the publication Dmitry Lemeshko notes.

The rate of fire of the machine gun reaches 700 rounds per minute. The initial speed of a bullet is about 860 meters per second, the weight of the machine gun is 32 kg, the life of the barrel is 10 000 shots.

    It is very good that ours has such weapons there ... In essence, this is a small-caliber gun according to the technical specifications ...

      Well, he is far from a small-caliber gun.
      In fact, according to the technical specifications ... this is a heavy machine gun

      And what, in your opinion, is "omission"? Why not write about small arms. Or for you only "Sarmatians" and "Caliber" matter?

      Hi, hello! hi A distinctive feature of Kord is that it can be used on a light machine 6T19 with bipods, which is clearly visible in the photo.

    Even a 6th-class bulletproof vest will not save.

      Is this such a "humor joke"? What bulletproof vest is there if it pierces an IFV?

    fighters of the Christian formation
    Today it is customary to consider them ours? What are these fighters of the Christian formation? But will such a machine gun not be given to a Muslim formation?

      Most likely they are fighters of the 106th brigade of the Republican Guard. This special unit is formed mainly of Christians.

      Why not? Specialists carry a mat with them in the kit. Moreover, there are stones, there is no comme il faut to rest on their elbows - the convenience of any work implies the quality of this work. am

        I do not think that in Syria with its climate there are 1 meter thick brick walls. Most likely, either hollow, or in 1 brick or a standard concrete box. So when they talk about his good qualities in battle in the city, then first of all they probably mean his relative ease and maneuverability of calculation, and mainly the ability to flush the enemy through walls

          I know only one machine gun better than Kord, this is ZU 27. We put it on the Urals and on the Lawns. Awning on top of the curious. And then the bam took off. In general, those who beat her will understand. Boxes are only heavy as bastards and she eats them at a time.
