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 is based on the PKM machinegun, sharing about 80% of common parts. It retains many features of the PKM except that it now features a new heavy fixed barrel that is claimed to enhance accuracy out to a range of 1500- meters.

The Pecheneg-N is the version fitted with a night vision sight.

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.
