The Al Quds is a light machine gun manufactured in Iraq.

OverviewEdit

The Al Quds is an Iraqi copy of the Serbian M72B1 (an RPK copy), manufactured in the 1970s. It saw service in the Iran-Iraq War, but Iraqi soldiers wielding Al Quds machine guns were often outgunned by Iranian soldiers with the longer-ranged and more versatile MG3. The Al Quds strangely has a glossier finish than the standard RPK; as is case with many Iraqi Kalashnikov clones.
