PKM Sound – Modern Weapons SFX Library
The PKM Sound is the sound of the PK, a belt-fed general-purpose machine gun, chambered for the 7.62×54mmR rimmed cartridge. Designed in the Soviet Union and currently in production in Russia, the original PK machine gun was introduced in 1961 and the improved PKM variant was introduced in 1969. The PKM was designed to replace the SGM and RP-46 machine guns that were previously in Soviet service. The original PK was a development of Kalashnikov’s AKM assault rifle and the accompanying RPK light machine gun design. The PK uses the 7.62×54mmR Eastern Bloc standard cartridge that produces significantly more bolt thrust. The bolt and carrier design are similar to the AK-47 and other modernized Kalashnikov-pattern weapons, as is the stripping procedure performed to remove those mechanisms from the gun for cleaning.
The PKM sound Construction Kit demonstration uses 3 combined “OneShot” + ”Loop” + ”Stop” sounds, then 4 random “OneShot” + ”Stop” sounds for close distance. And 3 combined “Dist_OneShot” + ”Dist_Loop” + ”Tail” sounds, then 4 random “Dist_OneShot” + “Tail” sounds for close and far distance. All the sounds in this preview as in the library, without processing. Also, these files were used for our Unity and Unreal Engine projects.
