That issued them? What type of Equipment did the soldier carry? I find the RPK facinating and would like to learn more about its deployment>

from what i've seen,..it is used as a light maching gun,..its closest U.S. role would be that of a M-249 S.A.W.

i know while i was in iraq,.. the I.N.G. and I.P's used them as mounted maching guns on there pick-up trucks,..i know they kept at least one drum with them,.. but i often saw them with the 40-45rd mags

i cant ever recall seeing a sling on one,...but i have a M-249 sling that is going to get volentold to carry that heffer once mine is built

hope it helps

Cruzie is correct. These are made to sling a lot of lead downrange from a semi-stationary position.
