The KL 12.7 is an updated, lightweight version of the Kord 12.7. (Kord Lyawki is the official name of the weapon, abbreviated to KL for obvious reasons. Lyawki meaning lightweight in Russian.)
The KL can be found tripod-mounted at defensive positions set up on the battlefield, and on certain vehicles such as the RSA GZ550 Light Armor vehicle.
Like any heavy machine gun, the KL does not have the same high rate of fire as its lighter brothers, but does great damage when it does hit a target.
The KL has a low-power scope for enhanced accuracy.-- Field Guide text entry
