Very rarely seen outside Finland, Ian with Forgotten Weapons was able to lay hands on a KvKK 62 light machine gun while traveling around the Baltic country.
The Valmet-produced belt-fed LMG in 7.62x39mm (the same caliber that the Finns used in their Valmet rifles), the gun is full-auto only and kinda looks like a Czech ZB-26/BREN gun, but using a 100-round belt held in an under-receiver pouch rather than a top-fed box mag.
The rate of fire is kinda zippy (like 1000 rounds per minute) which puts it on par with the old-school German MG 34/41 and MG42– though it is far from being as pretty.
