      Indians, what does not bother at all that these machine guns have different ammunition?
      -pkm-7.62 / 54
      -hebrew-7.62 / 51 ...!? barrels are replaceable.
      And this is when we have a Pecheneg with the same caliber, the barrel is not replaceable.
      wanted to create their own machine gun, as a result Kalashnikov is building or has already built a plant for the production of K203.
      They wanted to switch to Rafali, as a result they now want to buy a mig35.
      These games with the West and with Israel will not lead to any good, Barat profits and Pakistan and China.
      These Indians are just fooling around.

        One army in the world does not have such a variety of weapons. The logistics for this weapon will be both a HEADACHE AND WILL COST RUNNING MONEY! It can be seen that their army has never fought in earnest, there is no experience here of the thread of the army's armament strategy. In addition, the Indians have a question on the modernization of aeronautics and replacement of fighters, but they are still thinking. The most strange thing for me was buying Rafal at the price of a karable? Are they rich or are they just anarchy when equipping the army? As for the machine gun in caliber 7,62, there is no better PKM in the world and it is not outdated. Yeti Israelski the better to change the caliber in the army for machine guns from 7,62x54 to 7,62x51 ??? It's still a heavy 7,5kg machine gun without cartridges, it will add 150 pieces with a bullet and the weight will be about 10kg. That bi firing while standing with a 10kg machine gun should be a soldier Rambeau or just like having fun at a wedding. Cal 7,62x51 NATO from somewhere in the 50s of the last century IT IS OUTDATE, FOR A LIGHT MACHINE AND COMMAND VERSION, THE BARREL HAS BEEN SHORTENED OR NOT. There is no logic when buying these machine guns, or did they just "want" to do something for Israel?

          Wopsha day a machine gun on the battlefield in what ???
          1. Density and precision fire at greater distances than AB with high impact force.
          The Germans knew this in WWII and had MG 42.



          The caliber was 7,9mm and it weighed 12 kg, it was served by 2 people. It was efficient at 500m. The shooting was with the ground, and they stood on the films and fired.
          WHY IS THE MACHINE GUN STANDING AT BLISK DISTANCES, WHAT WE DO NOT HERE AB ???
          Maybe I'm stupid but empty someone will explain why in the construction of a machine gun weighing 10 kg with a HANDLE WHAT TO SHOOT STANDING ???
          WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO BUY SUCH A MACHINE GUN!

                The Indian army has already received the Negev NG7 machine guns in quantity 40949 units under the contract
                The second batch of machine guns in quantity 10 thousands units will arrive shortly.

                Well, if you bought so many and this is still not enough, probably everyone there is like that.

                  Vitaly Indusi have not fought in earnest for the last 120 years! They do not know what they need, but they, like children, try everything. But automatic weapons of the 21st century or the first half of the 21st century do not exist and they are not the most effective. Today there is an AV and a machine gun for the best army, and they are not NEGU, there is no HK, there is no SCAR, there is no GALIL and there is no in these calibers. But this is for the chosen ones, not for consumer goods and it is for genetic warriors. smile

        Does it bother you that the PK (M) and PKP, originally designed for the 7,62x54 R cartridge, are quite simply modified for the 7,62x51 NATO cartridge, which is demonstrated, for example, by the Turks who use the PK (M) with this cartridge?
        Moreover, there is also a Polish version for this cartridge - UKM 2000 Bumar

          doing experiments with cartridges is the last thing. The cartridge can warp and get stuck.
          As for Pecheneneg, what are you on such a site and don't know the basics?

            Go and learn the basics yes , because the fact that the control panel does not have a replaceable barrel in the kit does not mean that the barrel is not replaceable ...
            Moreover, the barrel locking mechanism ("latch") of the PK (M) and the PKP is obviously similar, and since the designs are more than 90% similar, I suspect that the barrel with the PK (M) can be installed in the PKP and vice versa ...

            Learn the basics, then come back ... yes

              and the trigger is replaceable there, or maybe the spring is also replaceable, or can the bolt there also be replaceable? Replaceable or not? everything is interchangeable there, but only in the regular machine gun crew from one machine gunner at Pecheneng is not equipped with a replaceable barrel, like a pkm or like a Jewish one. Therefore, a Pecheneng fighter needs to carry one machine gun and a couple of boxes of cartridges and that's all, but this negev needs everything too most and also a replaceable barrel, feel the difference?
              Well, I gave you a video where a military specialist talks about this machine gun, or can you only hear yourself?

                You wrote obvious nonsense, and now you are trying to disavow it crookedly and askew? Not worthy No.

                One machine gunner (instead of two) is not an indicator. Our PKer also runs alone without a second number. And here, some of the Russians wrote that in the RF Armed Forces, there is also no second number according to the state, even for PC (M), even for PKP.

        In general, the machine looks like a good one. But the price is .... 7+ kilobucks apiece. Not sour. I wonder how much we sold our PCs to Indians. Hand over to me, which is several times cheaper.

      They simply do not intend to fight ... Having machine guns in the army for DIFFERENT cartridges is, in the event of hostilities, a special masochism, but rather a sabotage. wassat When military expenditures are considered by some officials as a source of personal income, then such acquisitions are possible ...

    The rate of fire in the semi-automatic mode is 600 rounds per minute, in the fully automatic mode - 750.

    What is that supposed to mean?
    Translation problems or did the author confuse the combat rate of fire and the rate of fire, although the combat rate of fire should be lower, semi-automatic firing in their language, but in ours for single ones? Most likely adjustable rate of fire

    In the article from March 2012 "Machine gun for aimed shooting: Negev NG7" it is written about the possibility of firing single-shot from self-cocking, i.e. semi-automatic fire, well, not 600, but 60, zero extra. This is the only modern machine gun chambered for a rifle cartridge with a single fire mode.

    There is money - let them buy. The machine gun is not bad. Israel is creating its own line of weapons. Well done. They work and have a result. Everything is too slow in Russia. In Izhevsk, a machine gun with a movable barrel was being created, but something went quiet.

    PKM is outdated ?? In which place? A replacement chambered for 7.62x54, the same "Pecheneg", no? For "Pecheneg" and PKM there is also a knapsack magazine and a system for feeding the "Scorpion" cartridges. Apparently, the Indians cannot come to an agreement with the Russians on rollback issues, and one or two with the Jews.
    PKM:


    And "Pecheneg" itself:

        Unsuccessful attempt at homemade modification of the control panel. Feeding from a "skewed box" leads to frequent delays in firing, often with a break in the tape.

    We, too, once bought a batch of Negev, but the machine gun did not take root. Based on the experience gained, they made their own machine gun "Hp - 7,62" (based on PKM), which the special forces liked more than Negev.

    "Negev NG7 7,62x51mm was first introduced in 2012." It's strange, I ran with him back in 1995 on the range. Shnyazhnaya machine, often, when firing bursts, the barrel flies out. Especially after firing a couple of shots with BT-AT-44 and other barrel grenades. The prefabricated tape, the same often wedged. Yes, cleaning it, it's generally an opera ... Well, for the Indian climate, it is, to put it mildly, not very good.
