Caprica Arms HCG

This man portable or vehicle mountable machine gun is air-cooled and belt-fed. It fires from a closed bolt and is operated on the short recoil principle. In this action, the bolt and barrel are initially locked together, and recoil upon firing. After a short distance, the bolt and barrel unlock, and the bolt continues to move rearwards relative to the barrel. This action opens the bolt, and pulls the belt of ammunition through the weapon, readying it to fire again, all at a cyclic rate of 600. The gun fires 0.50 inch ammunition of the same type used by the Picon 911.
