Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The EPK Machine Gun was designed by EPK, a Greek defense company (in English, "Greek Powder and Cartridge Company," GPCC) later known as Pyrkal. The gun's creation is connected to EPK's ambitions to become a major producer of infantry weapons and a relevant 1937 proposal to the Greek government. The proposal was followed by the development of a modern machine gun of EPK-own design, as well as construction of a small number of prototypes in 1939. The whole project, including building of infrastructure for massive production of the gun was underway when war with Italy broke out on October 28, 1940, and subsequent events prohibited its completion.show more
