In this exclusive feature, join us for a historical journey and behind-the-scenes access where we uncover the secrets of the M84’s design, inspired by the iconic Soviet PKM but perfected by Serbian ingenuity. Watch firsthand accounts from the factory floor to the range, including expert insights from Serbia’s top gun influencer and war veterans who’ve wielded this “Heavy Metal Horcrux” in battle. Discover why the Zastava M84 is more than just a machine — it’s a piece of history, a cultural icon that is somehow related to the famed Serbian singer Ceca (we’ll explain), and a testament to the enduring spirit of Eastern European engineering. Don’t miss out as we test this marvel of military technology, revealing why it’s not just a tool, but a masterpiece of craftsmanship.

    Actually, Ceca was nickname of famous machine-gunner from JSO who also used to call his MG Ceca... Yugoslavia had license to produce T72 (which is armed with PKT) so at the same time, license to produce PKM/PKT is also acquired. And that scope that Darko is mentioning is not 4x but 3,5x made by Zrak. Not powerful one, but it's very robust prismatic scope.
    P.S. It was very popular during the 1990's to demonstrate superior feeding system by standing on belt while MG operator is shooting. "Ceca" would literally rip that belt under the feet without any malfunction.
