Arma2-render-PKM

The PKM is the modernized version of the venerable PK medium machine gun. The PKM is just small enough to be man portable and an ammo box attached under the receiver means the gunner always has a full 100-round belt ready to fire. Though it is a heavy weapon to carry the firepower it projects on the battlefield makes it worth the trouble. The PKM can provide sustainable suppressive fire, even at very long ranges.

The PKM is the standard machine gun for most armies from all factions of ArmA 2, from the Chernarussian Defense Force, Chedaki rebels and NAPA guerillas to the various Takistani factions, Private Military Contractors and Russian Armed Forces. This gives the advantage of making the 7.62 mm 100-round box magazines widely available in most situations. Unlike the lighter RPK however, the PKM cannot take in standard 30-round AK-47 magazines.

Other than infantry, the PKM is also used in static machine gun nests for most of the previously-mentioned armies and mounted on vehicles such as Pickups, Vodnik and Mi-8 helicopters.

The Russian MVD infantry in ArmA 2 is equipped with PKM's successor: the more accurate Pecheneg machine gun. Also, the Czech Army from the Army of the Czech Republic expansion uses PKM's contemporary, the UK-59. Both Pecheneg and UK-59 use PKM's 100-round box magazine.
