The Heckler & Koch HK21 is a German 7.62mm general purpose machinegun developed in 1961 by small arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch and based on the G3 battle rifle.

Design

A belt-fed general purpose machine gun. The basis of its operation is a roller locking mechanism; however, unlike most machine guns, it fires from a closed bolt. Comes equipped with a trigger group capable of semi-auto or 3-shot burst fire, and boasts a firing rate of 800 rounds per minute. The ammo box holds a 100-round 7.62mm x 51 rounds.

Usage

In 2014, the HK21E variant of the Heckler & Koch HK21 was laundered by Drebin 893 and then sold to the Middle Eastern militia members, with one of them also talking about they can fire it.

Metal Gear Solid 4 viewer description.

The HK21E is the first machine gun encountered in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. One model (the only one used by non-player characters in the story) is wielded by a rebel soldier in the Militia Safe House in Act 1, who shows it to a fellow rebel. Curiously, said rebel refers to it as "the very latest model", even though the -E model has been in production since the 1980s. It can be obtained by taking out the militiaman holding it, or bought from Drebin at a price of 6,000DP.  It is the only LMG with select fire.  It is capable of semi-auto, full-auto, and 3-round burst.
