The PKP is a russian general purpose machine gun that chambers the 7.62x54mm round. It was made by the infamous Mikhail Kalashnikov, creator of the Ak-47. Its counterpart, the PKM is missing the updated PKP's heavy fixed barrel encased in a radial cooling sleeve used to reduce overheating in the barrel.

Note: In Dayz:BP this gun is classed as a heavy weapon and the player should note they cannot carry a heavy weapon and backpack simultaneously.
