A batch of 12.7-mm heavy machine guns NSV “Utyos” entered service with the Russian military base in Tajikistan to enhance its combat capabilities.

The Cliff machine gun is designed to destroy enemy personnel, lightly armored targets, fortified firing points and enemy air assets. It can be installed on a universal tripod machine and in the embrasures of permanent fire structures. The uniqueness of the machine gun on the machine lies in the possibility of its use against ground and air targets simultaneously.

For reference:

The Russian military base in Tajikistan is Russia’s largest military facility outside its borders. Located in two cities – Dushanbe and Bokhtar. It includes motorized rifle, tank, artillery, reconnaissance units, air defense, communications, radiation, chemical and biological defense units.
