BMW 6 Series Convertible fitted with machine-gun spotted in Ukraine, amid Russian invasion.
The NSV 12.7mm caliber heavy machine is normally mounted on more rugged vehicles like 4×4 SUVs.
A BMW convertible with a huge machine gun fitted to its rear has been spotted in Mykolaiv, Ukraine, in footage posted Ukraine Weapons Tracker.
“An open-top BMW 6 series with an NSV 12,7×108 heavy machine gun mounted – is not something you see every day”
The usage of a BMW was most likely inspired by the Ukrainians’ lack of weaponry, as the NSV 12.7mm caliber heavy machine is generally mounted on more durable vehicles like 4×4 SUVs.
The clip was taken in the midst of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the prospect of Ukrainian forces and recruits defying Russian forces.
Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine three weeks ago, over 300 foreign corporations have either moved out or stopped activities in the country.
Aston Martin, Bentley, Daimler, Ferrari, Ford, GM, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Hyundai, Iveco, Magna, Mazda, Nissan, Renault, Rolls-Royce, Uber, and Volkswagen are among the automakers that have stopped operations in Russia.
A note for the Russians was placed behind the weapon, which said, ‘Russian Warships, go f*** you.’
They even installed what seems to be a machine gun turret on the back of the BMW 6 Series convertible, according to The Daily Star.
A stark warning to the Russian invaders is hidden behind the lethal weapon.
It looks like the machine gun installed on the car is an NSV machine gun.
“The NSV is standard on Russian tanks, which is presumably where this came from,” tweeted @Sanpaku1970.
“It makes more sense with a flatbed truck, but maybe they’re just messing about with the mount before the downpour.”
Due to the fact that BMWs are manufactured in Germany, Twitter users joked that this symbolized Germany’s entry into the fight.
According to Evo, the car in question is worth approximately around $79,000 new — presumably without the firearms.
