   This is the Tula TsKIB 5.66 mm underwater machine gun developed as part of "Moruzh" project. I can't remember the index right away. But the weapon is interesting: belt feed, short recoil. Developed, AFAIK, for underwater carriers. It did not go into serial production, but I do not remember why.
   In hands it feels weird: this unusual color of metal, this special coating, which excludes corrosion of the metal of the weapon (cadmium, something ... - forgot). holes everywhere to ensure that the water is not compressed inside of the casing and does not interfere with the work of automatics.

I even know where Popenker got this photo and its caption))

The photo caption was made famous by a weapon specialist in Russia, the author of many articles in magazines and the author of several books, Ruslan Nikolaevich Chumak.

I took this photo on the official page of Konstantin Lazarev. It was holding this experimental underwater machine gun.

That height-over-bore is insane, especially considering that the stock has no riser of any kind.

These are shots from the Russian propaganda television program.

This all looks very beautiful and impressive, but these techniques are not applicable to real combat actions.

I see. Are you Russian? You are a member I do not recognize.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
