PKT converted for infantry use. Translated from Russian. The transformation machine gun PKT - In the course of numerous local conflicts in the early '90s, the former Soviet Union, representatives of illegal armed groups an acute demand for machine-guns, as the primary means of support for the infantry. At the same time, the warring parties, a large number of machine gun stolen in the army, taken from a damaged in combat or incapacitated armor. Natural step to overcome this deficiency should be considered as small scale production of alteration in the mechanical workshops of the civil Profile armored infantry machine gun in the option. Scheme alterations, which received the greatest distribution was as follows: - With electric trigger gun shot block. - To free up space on the back plate receiver, overlaid steel plates for sidewall compound Miniature receiver attached to the butt of a pistol grip from a single piece of plastic or multiple layers of plywood glued together. - A safety plate was removed, and partially cut off trigger was connected to a homemade hook to cut out a slot in the bottom of the receiver. - The site bleed stem bolts are fastened with a clamp bipod tin of thick steel rod with pointed ends. - In the barrel in front of the welding protrusion was attached to the front sight. - At the receiver cover Miniature compound joined a steel angle with the radial notch, playing the role of a sight leaf. Because the maximum simplification of the process of adaptation, on the obtained machine guns were no such elements infantry machine gun PKM as: safety lamp, bracket for mounting the box of ammunition, safety clip on the trigger, the holder on the bipod for precast ramrod, nests in the butt for the nipples and a pen holder cleaning supplies. Due to these simplifications, a converted machine gun PKM inferior with regard to dimensions and weight indicators for ease of carrying in combat, security and accuracy of aimed fire. The only advantage to a converted PBC RMB turned out to be an opportunity for more intensive and prolonged fire due to the presence of an elongated stem, and weighted. Machine guns of similar design have been widely used in the Karabakh war, during the First and Second Chechen wars, the Civil War in Tajikistan, in the South Ossetian War (1991-1992), in the Georgian-Abkhazian war (1992-1993).
