One of the most impressive massive weapons every created: the soviet army's DSHK. It's an interesting counter to the US Army's M2 50 cal. The Russian Army's version is definitely not a copy. This DSHK heavy machine gun stands on its own legs, its own tripod legs I guess because you cannot hip fire this massive 12.7 x 108mm thing.

fun fact the og lmg was actually russian its called the maxim tokarev and look like a browning with a double barrel stock
I used it during my military service in the Algerian Tank division, The feeling of air bursting in my face after each shot was so... Beautiful... Unattainable.
The first and maybe the only time I flew over a DSHK mounted on a pickup in Iraq, I was puckered so tight I couldn’t even shit my self. I think it was Iraqi police, still scary.
not deshka! it sounds like de she ka
My dad talked about these things throwing giant tracers at his gunship in VN. He said they were f*cking scary. He flew in to save a unit that was pinned down by one of these outside a small hamlet. The nva had set up their dshk in a well. They had a sort of homemade gimbal set up so they could rotate the gun in and out of the well to protect itself from aircraft. My dad's pilot managed to get some 40mm on target then banked the helo directly over the top of the well so my dad could rake the gun crew from directly above. They got to see the gun up close when it was brought to base a couple days later. He said it was an awesome looking gun.
Duša means soul, but can also be used as you said, to call a beloved person. I'm not sure about other Slavic peoples, but in Serbian Duška is actually a girl's name.
Wanna see the real power of DSHK? Watch KGF Chapter 2 police station scene.....
Command and conquer not black hawk down bro.
And thats considered a new born kitten compared to its bigger brother the kpv which takes a 14. 5mm round, which basically is anti aircraft....
This gun is our Doddamma...😁 KGF 2
DSHK has way more power than the 50 cal
Mate.....no one except you calls this heavy machine gun a " Dooshka " ! No one. It is a " de - sh - ker "
Soviet not just russian
Make bigger gun with bigger bullet. Make it less accurate and inherently uncontrollable.
In Mother Russia, your weapons hate you more than the enemy...
If you ever end up in a slow news day, I'd love to see a modern soldier's take on the Second Punic War (Hannibal Barca's invasion of Rome) and how it looks from a modern military context.
I see you are some kind of Soviet-Russia lover. I'm from Georgia and i know them pretty well. They are biggest 💩-s and you must see it during what is going on in Ukraine.
