Universal Machine Gun. Modular. Reliable. Superior.As the successor of the MG3, The HK121 opens a new era of universal belt fed 7.62 mm x 51 machine guns. Compared to others, the gas operated HK121 offers an intelligent and contemporary build standard, with numerous technical and ergonomic innovations. The mounting interface of the HK121 is compatible with MG3 mounts and tripods already in service. The universal HK121 can be used by dismounted infantry in the ground role, as well as for air defence or as a vehicle mounted/co axial machine gun.approx. 600/700/800 rounds/min
Very Impressive and stable platform. It can be fired from virtually any position including standing. Virtually no muzzle rise with a 7.62!I am astounded at the ease in changing the barrels as well as the very low recoil forces it has.As a former machine gunner, I am in awe of these new German machine guns. Good grief.... Amazing rates of fire. If only they had them on the Eastern Front.... I would damn sure hate to be "down range" facing these weapons.
