Video reportedly shows pro Ukrainian militia troops using a KPVT heavy machine gun to engage pro Russian rebels with great accuracy at long range.
The video description claims those engaging the Russian proxy troops are members of the Ukrainian Bila Tserkva Volunteer Group. They are reportedly using 14.5mm KPVT heavy tank machine guns and repeatedly scoring hits at an estimated 2,000 meters.
The KPVT heavy machine gun is designed to kill light armored vehicles, fortified bunker positions, and also has use as an anti aircraft weapon. The weapon system is also given a maximum effective range of 2,000 meters, so if the context of the video is correct, then we are seeing incredible accuracy for the situation in which it is being employed.
