Video: Japanese Type 99 Light Machine Gun

Japanese Type 99 Light Machine Gun was used by the Imperial Japanese Army from 1939 to 1941. The gas-operated 7.7 mm fed from a top-mounted 30-round detachable box magazine, reflecting the Japanese Army's belief in the Code of Bushido, the Type 99 could be fitted with a sword bayonet.
