The WPKM (Russian: Пулемёт Калашникова Модернизированный, Pulemyot Kalashnikova Modernizirovanny, English: Kalashnikov Machine gun Modernized) is a 7.62×54mmR general-purpose machine gun designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov. The original PK machine gun was introduced in 1961 and then the improved PKM in 1969 to replace the SGM and RP-46 machine guns in Soviet service. It remains in use as a front-line infantry and vehicle-mounted weapon with Russian Armed Forces. The PK has been exported extensively and produced in several other countries under license.

The PKM is a machine gun featured in Insurgency: Sandstorm.





  • For the sake of simplicity, the in-game PKM is depicted with a disintegrating ammunition belt, while the real-life weapon uses a non-disintegrating belt.
  • Unlike other open-bolt MGs, the PKM actually stores 1 round in an intermediate position before firing, so its ammunition capacity should technically be x+1.
  • A PKM can use a scorpion ammo pack, which is just a huge square backpack with 550 rounds in it. Imagine that.
