The Pecheneg-SP machine gun, in contrast to the base Pecheneg, provides increased mobility of a soldier when performing special operations in urban environments.
7, 62-mm infantry machine gun "Pecheneg-SP" (index GRAU - 6P69), created on the theme "Warrior" FSUE "TSNIITOCHMASH", was first presented at the exhibition "Rosoboronexpo-2014" in Zhukovsky in August 2014.
The Pecheneg-SP machine gun, in contrast to the base Pechenega (index 6P41), has an additional short barrel with a PMS (low-noise firing device), which provides increased mobility of a soldier when performing special operations in urban conditions.
Additionally, "Pecheneg-SP" received an ergonomic tactical fire control handle, which serves for the convenience of holding the machine gun when firing while standing, and a butt that can be folded and adjusted in length. Also, the machine gun has a removable bipod, which can be installed in the muzzle of the barrel (like in the 6P41) and on the gas chamber (like in the PKM). On the receiver cover there is a Picatinny rail for attaching optical and night sights.
To reduce the clang when driving with a machine gun, the entire inner surface of the box for the machine gun belt was covered with plastic. The aiming bar of the mechanical sight is marked up to 800 meters.
The firing mode for the Pecheneg SP machine gun is similar to the base Pechenga - 400 rounds (200 - in bursts of 10 to 15 rounds and 200 rounds of continuous fire). The firing mode for the PMS before cooling is 150 shots (100 in short bursts of 3-5 shots and 50 shots with continuous fire). The resource of the shortened barrel with the PMS is 15,000 rounds.
