The KORD (short for Kovrov Armorers of Degtyarev plant) is a Russian large-caliber heavy machine gun, chambered for 12.7×108mm, developed by the Degtyarev plant in 1992. Production began in 1998.
Designed for the destruction of lightly armored targets and weapons, and eliminating enemy personnel at ranges of up to 1500-2000 meters, and also for engaging aerial targets at slant ranges up to 1500 meters.
The KORD was created in the 1990s as a replacement for the NSV (“Utes”), the production of which, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, was partially outside the Russian Federation. The machine gun is developed at the Kovrov Degtyarev Plant (ZID).
The KORD is currently in production; the machine gun has been officially adopted for use in the Russian Army. In addition to the infantry version, it is set as an anti-aircraft gun on the turret of the Russian T-90S MBT.
The KORD is a belt-fed automatic weapon that feeds from either the left- or right-hand side. The machine gun is gas-operated with a rotating bolt. The trigger mechanism can be controlled manually (from the trigger installed on the machine gun), and from the electric trigger (for tank variants). The machine gun has a fuse from accidental shots.
