The C9A2 light machine gun (LMG) is primarily used as an infantry support weapon. Equipped with an adjustable bipod, it is normally fired from the prone position and is solely capable of full automatic fire.

The C9A2 is air-cooled, gas-operated and equipped with a rotating bolt locking system. Designed with a dual feed system, it fires from a disintegrating link belt of 200 rounds. In emergencies, a 30-round rifle magazine can be used instead. The primary sighting system is an optical sight.

  • low infrared signature
  • a foldable and extendable 4-position butt
  • a cover with a longer rail mount and adjustable rear sight assembly

  • two interchangeable, quick-change barrels
  • disintegrating belt feed system
  • open breech firing system, which prevents cook-off
