14.5 mm QJG 02, China's standard second-line dual-purpose HMG

14.5x115mm, 500 rounds per minute.

A quintessential Chinese infantry weapon of the early 2000s:  Man-portable (a 5-man crew), can fire either Chinese/Soviet ammo and build on top of a mixture of Soviet lineage and local mod/improvement.   Also, found in the Middle East.

Great pictures. I was familiar with the old Soviet design in single, twin, and quadruple applications. It looks like Norinco has made some useful mods to the design. 14.5mm is a surprisingly versitile round.
