TAB Episode 5: Maxim-Tokarev Light Machine Gun

In this video Matt takes a look at the extremely rare Maxim-Tokarev Light Machine Gun. Less than 10,000 of these early Soviet light machine guns are believed to have been made. They were quickly replaced by the DP-28 but saw action during the Spanish and Chinese Civil Wars.

Matt stumbled across this example of the MT while visiting the excellent Menorcan Military Museum on the Spanish Balearic Island of Menorca. The video discusses the history of the MT and then takes a look at the weapon.
