APEX Portable Machine Gun 15 (PMG-15)

Developed alongside the German G-11 by a conglomeration of the companies Heckler & Koch (mechanical engineering and weapon design), Dynamit Nobel (propellant composition and projectile design), and Hensoldt Wetzlar (target identification and optic systems), the PMG-15 was in development between the years of 1972 and 1995. With it's aluminum and polymer construction, combined with the use of 4.73×33mm caseless ammunition, the PMG-15 is considered one of the lightest assault rifle / machine gun hybrids developed to date.

It's dual-magazine design is considered it's most unique feature - the weapon has the ability to mount two seperate 30-50 round straight magazines onto both sides, allowing for a maximum capacity of 100 rounds; the magazine it uses can easily be switched by the switch of a simple lever. However, the bullpup design and complicated and heavy firing mechanism plagued the weapon with unresolvable balance, recoil, and integrity issues until the early 80s.

In 1982, the G2 model went into limited production cycles for exclusive use by the newly formed, clandestine American task force titled Advanced Precision Engagement and EXfiltration (APEX). It saw combat operation across the world, but mainly in proxy nations behind the Iron Curtain.

Heavily edited in PDN. Sight attached to receiver from separate PMG window. Text and soldier image separately added.

CREDIT to phelandavion for the stock drawing of the soldier, which I kitbashed with my gun and a gas mask. I basically traced it with a bunch of my additions, I'm not really a good artist this was just for presentation.

That's one PDW you got there... :D

The upper rail/carry handle could be used for an A-91 concept design tho...
