    The HK121 is a 7.62×51mm NATO general-purpose machine gun manufactured by Heckler & Koch. The weapon is intended as a replacement for the Rheinmetall MG3. This weapon resembles the 5.56×45mm NATO Heckler & Koch MG4 light machine gun which was adopted into German military service in 2005.

    Lightweight Small Arms Technologies (LSAT)

    [video=youtube_share;WlM8IHij6Hs]http://youtu.be/WlM8IHij6Hs[/video]

    The LSAT light machine gun, of the LSAT (Lightweight Small Arms Technologies) program, is a developmental, powerful light machine gun. The purpose of the program was to develop a lighter, yet very reliable LMG. The program was initiated in 2004, when the Joint Service Small Arms Program (JSSAP) challenged the American defence industry to develop a lighter small arms and also design lighter ammunition. The LMG provides a major reduction in weight over legacy weapons, as well as improvements in other areas, such as controllability and reliability. As of 2008, it has two configurations, one that fires cased telescoped ammunition, and one that fires caseless ammunition. After further research and development into both technologies and the platforms that fire them, one of the two variants shall be chosen for production.
