The KORD Heavy Machine Gun was never designed to be fired from the hip, but the soldier in this video doesn't seem to care.
The lightest model weighs in at a hefty 56 pounds. The manufacturers of the KORD Heavy Machine Gun designed it to be mounted on a vehicle, used for ground support and deployed for anti-aircraft purposes.
Watch the video below:
The KORD is capable of firing the 12.7 x 108 mm round from a bipod and is light enough for one soldier to move it around the battlefield. However, transporting a gun and firing it from the hip are two entirely different things.
The soldier in this video looks to have stepped straight out of a video game with the massive KORD Heavy Machine Gun strapped to his hip. The smoke-filled battlefield only increases the cool factor of this video.
Don't try this at home, folks. If you just happen to own a KORD Heavy Machine Gun, that is!
