The weapon is designed to serve the role of a medium machine gun and is fired from a tripod mounting. It is fully automatic, air cooled, belt fed, gas operated weapon capable of a sustained high rate of fire in bursts. The gun fires from open breech thus preventing any explosion of a cartridge (cook off) after prolonged firing. The gun is provided with a heavy/light barrel, the bore and chamber of which are chromium plated. The weapon is supplied with a gun barrel and a spare barrel which can be quickly and easily changed to avoid over heating which causes cook off and reduction in barrel life.
