Arsenal LMG

Notes: This weapon is basically the Bulgarian version of the RPK/RPK-74. It is virtually identical to RPK-74, except for some minor differences in construction, dimensions, and weight. The 5.45mm version of the LMG is fed by standard RPK-74 magazines, or by a Bulgarian-made 45-round curved box magazine. The 5.56mm version is fed by the same magazines as the AR assault rifle series (which is a problem, since they are really too small for what is supposed to be a sustained-fire support weapon). The 7.62mm version uses the same magazines as the RPK. The LMG-F has a folding stock, but is otherwise identical to the LMG. An option is a mount for optics, but this is not a standard feature.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The 5.45mm version of the LMG is extremely rare, while the 5.56mm version does not exist.

Merc 2000 Notes: The 5.45mm version is under limited production for use in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The 5.56mm version is not nearly as common, but is seeing some very limited production for export.
