Czechs are buying new machine guns

The Czech Ministry of Defense has announced that it has signed a contract for the purchase of 949 Minimi machine guns from FN Herstal.

The purchase will be carried out through the Czech company CB Servis Centrum SRO, and the contract itself amounts to 1.12 billion CZK , i.e. approximately 50.73 million USD. The contract also includes optical sights, gunsmith sets and gun transport cases. The supplied LMGs are to include, apart from the standard 5.56x45mm caliber weapons, also models chambered for 7.62x51mm ammunition called "Maximi".


The Minimi 7.62x51mm rifle cartridge model was created as the Mk 48 Mod 0 on the order of the USSOCOM (US Special Operations Command) and turned out to be such a successful design that it appeared in the armed forces of other countries, including Poland.
The purchase of Minimi LMGs is the next stage of modernization and increasing the combat potential of the army of the Czech Republic.

In 2020, the army decided to purchase weapons on the domestic market from Česká Zbrojovka Uherský Brod (CZ) in the form of 16,000 Bren 2 assault rifles, 21,000 CZ P10C/F pistols and 1,600 CZ 805 G1 grenade launchers. The value of this contract is 2.35 billion CZK (92.5 million USD).
