The Ukrainian army uses machine guns manufactured in the middle of the 20th century to fight Russian drones

The Ukrainian Armed Forces surprised everyone by using a homemade vehicle that was equipped with Soviet-made Maxim machine guns developed in the 1940s and 1930s.

Photos of two models of this local weapon were published on social networks, one of which belongs to the thirties, and the second, which has a characteristic hole on the barrel of a machine gun, to the forties.

A platform for each of the two machine guns was made locally to fit into the trunk of each car.

It is noteworthy that the Ukrainian army had previously identified old American and Japanese-made pickup trucks of the 20th century, as well as Volga (GAZ-M-21) and Moskvich pickups and LuAZ-969M all-wheel drive vehicles. All were equipped with Soviet-made multi-barrel heavy machine guns.

Some Ukrainian experts said that all these self-propelled platforms could be used against marches. However, others believe that this homemade weapon is completely unsuitable for fighting Russian Gairan drones.
