The Mk200 6.5 mm light machine gun.

The Mk200 is a 6.5 mm light machine gun used by several Independent and BLUFOR factions in ArmA 3.

Overview

The Mk200 is a belt fed, gas operated fully-automatic light machine gun that is chambered to fire 6.5×39 mm caseless rounds.

It feeds from 200-round linked belts stored in soft pouches, and can attain a fire rate of up to 800 rounds per minute with a muzzle velocity of 920 m/s. The Mk200 can mount accessories on its side, top and underbarrel rails, and can also have suppressors fitted onto its muzzle.

The Mk200 packs decent firepower in a compact package.

Compared to both its CSAT and Russian-made counterparts, the Mk200 is lighter to wield against the former while possessing a much larger magazine capacity (200 rounds versus the Zafir's 150/RPK-12's 75).

It also has a much higher muzzle velocity while also being better in terms of accuracy over long ranges. Unlike the Zafir, it can be suppressed, which renders it ideal for stealth missions that require the firepower of an LMG.

The main drawback to the Mk200 stems from its use of the smaller 6.5 mm cartridge. While this is what makes the Mk200 lighter to carry, it also means that its rounds are relatively less hard-hitting compared to the Zafir's 7.62×54 mm rounds. The other downside is its inability to toggle a semi-automatic fire mode, which limits it to firing on full auto only.

Camouflage

  • Black: Matte black paint finish. Exclusive to LDF autoriflemen.
  • Sand: Flat dark earth finish with some black coloured parts. Shared by AAF, FIA and Loyalist automatic riflemen.

The Mk200 can be fed with four types of belt pouch magazines. All four have identical "mass" values of 50 units:

6.5 mm 200Rnd Reload Tracer (Yellow) Belt

Arma3-ammunition-200rndmk200belt.png

Linked belt pouch containing 200 rounds worth of caseless 6.5 mm ammunition.

The fourth round will always be a visible yellow tracer. Only the last four rounds are exclusively tracers.

6.5 mm 200Rnd Reload Tracer (Red) Belt

Arma3-ammunition-200rndmk200belt.png

Identical to regular yellow pouches, but every fourth round (along with the last four) will be coloured in red instead.

6.5mm 200Rnd Belt Tracer (Yellow)

Arma3-ammunition-200rndmk200tracer.png

Consists purely of visible yellow tracers. Identical in all other aspects to regular belt pouches.

6.5mm 200Rnd Belt Tracer (Red)

Identical to yellow tracer-loaded belts but coloured in red.

Trivia

  • The Mk200 is based on the "Stoner 99 LMG" designed by the Knight's Armament Company (KAC) based in Florida, U.S.A.
    • The Stoner 99 was initially offered as a replacement for the venerable "M249 SAW" LMG that is currently still in service (in limited numbers) with both the U.S. Army and Marine Corps. While it was rejected by the U.S. military, it was accepted for service by the Danish Armed Forces and is also used in limited numbers by several private military companies.
  • It is also partially based on AAI Corporation's prototype LMG that was initially designed for the U.S. military's Lightweight Small Arms Technologies (LSAT) initiative, which was then succeeded by the Cased Telescoped Small Arms Systems programme.
    • Unused pre-Alpha Mk200 icon.

      This is further reinforced by the existence of an unused icon which depicts a model that strongly resembles the LSAT prototype, though the model itself is unavailable within the game files (Texture name: gear_m200_ca.paa).
    • While AAI's prototype was chambered to fire 5.56/7.62 mm caseless/cased telescopic ammunition instead of the Mk200's 6.5 mm, the concept design between the two is very similar.
  • It is shown to be a product of an Armaverse company named Vigilante Design.
  • Before the release of the Beta and inclusion of the Zafir, it initially served as a placeholder LMG for CSAT forces during the Alpha.
  • Prior to the release of the Marksmen DLC, the Mk200 also featured an integrated grip pod. This was later removed as the weapon was refactored to accept regular bipods on its underbarrel rail.
  • Both the Black-coloured variant and two additional "magazines" loaded with red tracers were not added until the release of the Contact expansion pack - specifically for use by the Livonian Defense Force.
