The Mekanika Uirapuru is a General Purpose Machine Gun of Brazilian origin and is chambered in the 7.62 x 51 mm NATO caliber.

Standard fare for the Brazilian armed forces, the Uirapuru features design simplicity and ease of operation. This home-grown GPMG replaced the FN MAG. Brazil's arms industry may have been slow in getting started, but today it is a major domestic consumer and exporter of weapons systems, as in aircraft, fighting vehicles and small arms, light weapons like the Uirapuru GPMG in 7.62mm NATO.
