STK Ultimax 100 MK 8

    The last time we discussed the Singapore Technologies Kinetics (STK) Ultimax 100 machine gun was back in 2008 when General Dynamics unveiled the Ultimax 100 Mk5 as their entry into the Marine IAR competition, a competition eventually won by the H&K M27 IAR. At the Singapore Airshow last week, STK unveiled the Ultimax 100 MK 8.

    By all accounts the Ultimax 100 is a fantastic low recoil machine gun, but it was positioned in lonely space somewhere between automatic rifle and belt fed machine gun. It looks like STK is now aiming squarely at the automatic rifle market.
