Kind of a Modern crossover.
He should slap a "The Machine Kills Fascists'" sticker on that.

If it works, use it!

Is that a Ukrainian flag in the background?

I can see why Uncle Sugar only sent food and medical supplies to the Ukraine. With that kind of firepower to stop the Russians pushing in on your territory they don't need anymore weapons.

Oddball, it certainly appears to be one.

Uncle Sugar only sent food and medical supplies to the Ukraine.

Also I thought the USA sent AT weapons e.g. Javelins ?

The Ukrainian army has long officially returned to service the Maxim machine guns for arming checkpoints. A fairly convenient weapon, by the way, for stationary firing points. The barrel will not overheat thanks to the water cooling, and the accuracy of the fire is excellent due to the heavy weight.
In Ukraine, there are huge warehouses of old and captured weapons, which are located in old salt caves since Soviet times.
By the way this machine gun was made even before the start of the Second World War. After the war in Finland in 1939, a wide neck was made on Soviet machine guns in the barrel casing, through which the casing could be filled not only with water, but also with snow.

Good to know !

Regarding the supply of weapons to Ukraine, a large number of Soviet-style weapons and ammunition were transferred to Ukraine by NATO countries, which were previously members of the Warsaw Pact. Secretly naturally))) An investigation was carried out on this by a Bulgarian journalist, but I do not remember her name now.

I should think it'll still be quite capable of making holes in people.

No doubt … it has before …
