One Infantry Motorized Brigade from the Russian army has received the first new 7.62 caliber machine gun Pecheneg-N. This weapon is especially designed to engage manpower, light armoured vehicles and aerial targets during night and day.
Pecheneg-N Russian-made 7.62mm machine gun fitted with night sight 1PN90-3.
This delivery was made under a plan to modernise weaponry of motorized brigade of the Central Military District.
The Pecheneg machine gun can provide more sustained firepower than the standard-issue RPK-74, and the 7.62x54R cartridge offers a longer effective range and better penetration of light structures and improvised covers in urban and forest environments.
