HISTORY



Detailing the development and operational history of the S&T Motiv (Daewoo) K6 Heavy Machine Gun (HMG).  Entry last updated on 7/31/2017. Authored by Staff Writer. Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com.
The Daewoo K6 HMG is a locally-produced South Korea copy of the fabled American M2 Browning Heavy Machine Gun and, therefore, utilizes the same mission scope as its widely-used contemporary. The K6 externally mimics its long-running brethren to a high degree including its spade grips at the rear, its slab-sided receiver and short perforated barrel jacket behind a long barrel assembly. The K6, like the M2, has seen use as a tripod- and vehicle-mounted weapon where its suppression capabilities and light armor penetration have proven useful. The K1 Main Battle Tank makes use of the K6 as a trainable roof-mounted anti-aircraft machine gun. The weapon system is chambered for the 12.7mm cartridge and is fed by a belt magazine.
