A batch of modernized machine guns "Pecheneg" entered the combined arms army of the VVO

A batch of modernized Pecheneg machine guns entered service with the combined arms army of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Amur Region. This was reported by the press service of the district.


The number of machine guns in the party is not named, weapon received under the state defense order. It is noted that after the modernization of the machine gun, it became possible to customize the weapon for a specific soldier, as well as mount various sights and attachments using Picatinny rails.

After the modernization, the light machine gun became more ergonomic, it became possible to customize the machine gun for a specific serviceman, as well as to mount various sighting devices and attachments using the universal mechanism of the Picatinny rail. For the convenience of hand-held shooting, an additional adjustable tactical grip appeared

- said in a statement.

The creation of a modernized version of the Pecheneg machine gun was reported in 2017. The modernization of the machine gun was ordered by the Ministry of Defense, the work was carried out for four years. It is known that titanium is used in the design of the new Pecheneg. The main tasks in creating the new "Pecheneg" were to reduce weight, dimensions and improve ergonomics.

The 7,62 mm Pecheneg light machine gun was developed on the basis of the Kalashnikov machine gun (PKM). Designed to destroy manpower, transport and fire weapons, as well as low-flying air targets. It is produced in basic and in modification for special services with a shortened barrel and a silencer.

      BC ?: PC 400 in peaceful conditions, the second number is 1x200.
      In combat regiments 3x200, the second number is 2x200. If my moronic memory does not change b / c on AK 300 rounds for a machine gun 7,62 1000 (how many of them I don’t remember) ... I’ll tell you so about the machine gun, we ran an ordinary cross for ten as part of the company, and so the machine gunner the six simply died, despite the fact that he was dragging a machine gun without ammunition, without even a box. I had to take the machine gun, one by the barrel, the other by the butt, and the only way, changing, you can quickly move with this bandura. besides, we drove at a shuttle run three hundred on a hundred, or five hundred on a hundred. The thing is good, but 10 kg makes itself felt.

    I do not understand why they are so worried about these "Picatinny rails"! After all, "Pecheneg" is for arming the combined arms army. What will conscripts or contract soldiers "sculpt" on these "Picatinny" rails? ? Or a Chinese tactical flashlight from aliexpress?
    Are there stationary sighting devices and body kit provided by the manufacturer? So use it! Why the heck is that Picatinny rail for a combined arms machine gun?

        Do you want to say about the huge variety of night sights for machine guns, that they need a Picatinny rail? Or, is it all the same easier to make a universal, combined-arms hole or a hollow or a plug in a weapon in domestic models of weapons, where to insert those few pribluda for shooting that the army has at its disposal? Why a Picatinny rail? To export weapons to NATO countries? That's just funny.

        Throwing the sight on a weapon with a Picatinny rail without losing "zero" is not given to everyone. Even with quick-release fasteners. For reference: the normative requirements for the STP withdrawal on the side bar - no more than 0-00.25, for the Picatinny (data from the manual for the Eotech XPS2 sight) - no more than 2 MOA, which is equivalent to 0-00.6. In reality, when the sights are installed on the Picatinny rail in a different place along the length of the bar, the STP drift can be up to 0-01.5.
        Unfortunately, this is a problem only for real users, and not for permanent "approvers" of any, even the most stupid, innovations of modern pests.

          During the war, grandfathers shot weapons in advance and made notes, notches, sharpening in places where various devices were precisely installed, so that in battle they did not waste time on zeroing in, fine-tuning, and debugging. Marks on the bar, that's all. Yes, you have to plow, suffer, but otherwise there will be no kin.

      My former colleague, after the "term" served as a contract soldier - sniper in the MP of the Northern Fleet. So he had his own sight, although he kept the official one at hand for testing. And I bought cartridges in the store, before my business trip to Chechnya.

    Instead of the PKK, it is necessary to introduce Pecheneg into each department. Moreover, in modern armies, including in Russia, the infantry travels on armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, and therefore soldiers do not need to carry a heavy machine gun and ammunition on their humps, as it was before in rifle units.

          At the exit to the machine gun, the "man" pulls two more boxes of "hundred parts", each of which weighs another 3500 grams, two offensive plus two defensive grenades - another 1800 grams, in the RD-shke there are three more rounds in ribbons - that's about 8000 grams , plus water and some dry ration - another 1500 ... 2000 grams. So "thirty" sticks at least to personal weight. This is, once again, the minimum.

    Father told me. A company of our soldiers on the march met a platoon of Germans marching towards.
    The Germans silently turned around and scrambled to the nearest forest. Ours from surprise rushed after them, firing on the move from machine guns.
    The Germans made a noise, but did not shoot, and they ran to the forest, not one fell
    But if our people had stayed in place and would have fired at the Germans from all 9 DPs and from almost a hundred submachine guns, then few of that platoon would have escaped.
