The Russian Degtyarev bureau was given the job of producing an updated version of the weapon chambered in the12.7×108mm cartridge, which could be used for support, mounted on vehicles or in an anti-aircraft capacity. The weapon has also been chambered to handle the .50 BMG cartridge for export sales. The weapon employs new construction, and consequently is significantly lighter than its predecessor. Its relatively light weight and lesser recoil allows stronger soldiers to move the gun around without assistance. Entered service in 1998 replacing the older NSV machine gun.
