    Not seeing much in the way of "Air Defense" there, But I'd take one in a heart beat. Must be nice to be able to destroy barrels just for a demo.

    Duh! Just another variation of the MG-34/42 and M-60. Cyclic rate is pretty lame compared to the ripping cloth of the -42.

    Notice that the belt was not fed from an ammo can.

    H&K is overpriced, over hyped, and arrogant as hell to boot!

    We must have watched different vids or you have no clue of what you were seeing. Whole different class from the mg-34/42 or M-60. The high cyclic rate of the 42 did nothing but waste ammo on anything but aircraft.

    The main thing I noticed was almost zero recoil for a 7.62 MG. Pretty impressive IMO.

    They didn't destroy the barrel. They were demonstrating how robust the barrels are just by letting them cool in water and shooting em all over again.
