1. 7,96mm DT (DP)

The Degtyaryov machine gun (Russian: Пулемёт Дегтярёвa Пехотный Pulemyot Degtyaryova Pekhotny "Degtyaryov's infantry machine gun") or DP is a light machine gun firing the 7.62×54mmR cartridge that was used primarily by the Soviet Union starting in 1928. The DP machine gun was supplemented in the 1950s by the more modern RPD machine gun and entirely replaced in Soviet service by the general purpose PK machine gun in the 1960s.

DT and DTM, for mounting in armoured fighting vehicles (Дегтярёва танковый, Degtyaryova Tankovy; ДТ and ДТМ), used on most USSR tank like T-34, IS and KV family...

 

DT appear ingame (T-34-85, KV-1)

2. 12,7mm DshK 

 

The DShK 1938 (ДШК, for Дегтярёва-Шпагина Крупнокалиберный, Degtyaryova-Shpagina Krupnokaliberny, 'Degtyaryov-Shpagin Large-Calibre' ) is a Soviet heavy machine gun firing the 12.7×108mm cartridge. The weapon was also used as a heavy infantry machine gun, in which case it was frequently deployed with a two-wheeled mounting and a single-sheet armour-plate shield. It took its name from the weapons designers Vasily Degtyaryov, who designed the original weapon, and Georgi Shpagin, who improved the cartridge feed mechanism. It is sometimes nicknamed Dushka (lit. "Sweetie", "Dear", from the abbreviation.

The requirement for a heavy machine gun appeared in 1929. The first such gun, the Degtyaryov, Krupnokalibernyi (DK, Degtyaryov, Large calibre), was built in 1930 and this gun was produced in small quantities from 1933 to 1935.

The gun was fed from a drum magazine of only thirty rounds, and had a poor rate of fire. Shpagin developed a belt feed mechanism to fit to the DK giving rise, in 1938, to the adoption of the gun as the DShK 1938. This became the standard Soviet heavy machine gun in World War II.

Like its U.S. equivalent, the M2 Browning, the DShK 1938 was used in several roles. As an anti-aircraft weapon it was mounted on pintle and tripod mounts, and on a triple mount on the GAZ-AA truck. Late in the war, it was mounted on the cupolas of IS-2 tanks and ISU-152 self-propelled guns. As an infantry heavy support weapon it used a two-wheeled trolley which unfolded into a tripod for anti-aircraft use, similar to the mount developed by Vladimirov for the 1910 Maxim gun.[1] It was also mounted in vehicle turrets, for example, in the T-40 light amphibious tank.

In addition to the Soviet Union and Russia, the DShK has been manufactured under license by a number of countries, including the People's Republic of China, Pakistan and Romania. Today, it has been mostly replaced in favour of the more modern NSV and Kord designs. Nevertheless, the DShK is still one of the most widely used heavy machine guns.

 

DshK in-game appear on top of many USSR and CN tank, like T-54, IS-6, ST-1, LTTB, WZ-111 ...

3. 7,62mm SG-43 (SGMT)

The SG-43 Goryunov was a Soviet medium machine gun that was introduced during the Second World War. It was chambered for the 7.62×54mmR cartridge, and was introduced in 1943 as a replacement for the older M1910 Maxim machine guns. It was mounted on wheeled mounts, tripods and armored vehicles.

The SG-43 used a tilting breechblock, moving sideways and locking into the side of the receiver. The feed is not straightforward, as the gun fires the 7.62×54mmR round, and this has to be withdrawn rearwards from the belt before ramming into the breech. The reciprocating motion is achieved by using two claws to pull the round from the belt, and then an arm pushes the round into the cartridge guide ready for the bolt to carry it to the breech. Despite this complication, the SG-43 was remarkably reliable and feed jams were apparently few.

 

After the end of World War II, the SG-43 was improved and renamed SGM ("M" for modernized); dust covers and a new barrel lock were fitted, and a splined barrel was fitted to improve cooling.[3] A tank mounted variant was also developed under the designation SGMT. SGMT in WOT appear as T-54/55's co-axial gun, same with Chinese clone

4. PK (or PKT)

 

The PK is a 7.62 mm general-purpose machine gun designed in the Soviet Union and currently in production in Russia.[3] The PK machine gun was introduced in the 1960s and replaced the SGM and RP-46 machine guns in Soviet service. It remains in use as a front-line infantry and vehicle-mounted weapon with Russia's armed forces, and has been exported extensively.

 

The original PK (Пулемёт Калашникова: Pulemyot Kalashnikova, or "Kalashnikov's Machinegun" ) was a development of Kalashnikov's AK47 automatic rifle design, firing the 7.62x54mmR Eastern Bloc standard ammunition originally from the Mosin–Nagant. The bolt and carrier design are similar to the AK, as is the stripping procedure performed to remove those mechanisms from the gun for cleaning. The bolt and bolt carrier are oriented upside down compared to the AK, with the piston and gas system being underneath the barrel. The long stroke piston is hinged off the bolt carrier group to make it possible to bend the group in and out of the receiver for maintenance. The gun uses a non-reciprocating charge handle on the right side of the receiver to charge the gun, and the gun fires from an open bolt, which improves cooling compared to a closed bolt design, and prevents the gun from being able to cook off if extremely overheated. The barrel is a quick detach type with a carry handle that sits to the left of the receiver. The rear sight is identical in design to the AK and Mosin–Nagant, except that it is oriented backwards with the notch forward and the hinge behind. It also features full windage adjustment in the form of small dials on either side of the notch, a feature not seen on the guns that preceded it.

 

PKT

The PKT (ПК Танковый, "PK Tank" ) is a further development of the PK to replace the SGMT Goryunov vehicle-mounted machine gun. Modifications include the removal of the stock, a longer and heavier barrel, a gas regulator and an electric solenoid trigger.

 

PKT in WOT appear as co-axial gun of T-62A

5. KPV (KPVT)

The KPV-14.5 heavy machine gun (KPV is an initialism for Krupnokaliberniy Pulemyot Vladimirova, in Russian as Крупнокалиберный Пулемёт Владимирова, or КПВ) is a Soviet designed 14.5x114mm-caliber heavy machine gun, which first entered service as an infantry weapon (designated PKP) in 1949. In the 1960s the infantry version was taken out of production because it was too big and heavy. It was later redesigned for anti-aircraft use, because it showed excellent results as an AA gun, with a range of 3,000 meters horizontally and 2,000 meters vertically against low flying planes.[1] It was used in the ZPU series of anti-aircraft guns. Its size and power also made it a useful light anti-armour weapon on the BTR series of vehicles and the BRDM-2 scout car.

 

The version for use in armoured vehicles is called the KPVT (tankoviy, 'tank' ). KPVT is used for armoured vehicle installations, boats, movable and stationary mounts and various antiaircraft mounts. It features a shorter receiver and a heavier barrel jacket. The KPVT also uses a 50-round belt instead of the original 40-round belt. KPVTs are the primary armament of the wheeled BTR-60PB/70/80 series armoured personnel carriers and BRDM-2 armoured reconnaissance vehicles. It is intended for fighting against light armoured targets, weapons systems and light shelters at the distances of up to 3000 m, as well as air targets at distances up to 2000 m

 

In-game, KPV and KPVT appear on top of  Obj140, Obj430, Obj907 and IS-7. Obj.140 use KPV variant while others use KPVT variant 

 

The Chieftain Hatch : IS-7, The_Chieftain mention and talk about KPVT at 8:30

1. Browning 30.cal 7,62mm M1919

The M1919 Browning is a .30 caliber medium machine gun widely used during the 20th century, especially during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. An air-cooled development of the standard US machine gun of World War I, the John M. Browning-designed M1917, the M1919 saw service as a light infantry, coaxial, mounted, aircraft, and anti-aircraft machine gun by the U.S. and many other countries. Although it began to be superseded by such newer designs as by the M60 in the later half of the century, it remained in use in many North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries and elsewhere for much longer.

 

Sherman Fury with M2 and M1919

The M1919 is very similar in design to the larger Browning-designed .50 caliber (12.7mm) M2 Machine Gun, especially in its "heavy-barrel" or HB version, still in NATO service. Many M1919s were rechambered for the new 7.62×51mm NATO round and served into the 1990s, as well as up to the present day in some countries. The United States Navy also converted many to 7.62mm NATO, and designated them Mk 21 Mod 0; they were commonly used on river craft in the 1960s and 1970s in Vietnam.

 

In-game, M1919 apear on many Murican tank from tier 1 to tier 9 (M47), work as many role, like Commander's MG, Radioman'MG or co-axial gun

2. Browning .50cal 12,7mm M2 HB

The M2 Machine Gun or Browning .50 Caliber Machine Gun is a heavy machine gun designed towards the end of World War I by John Browning. It is very similar in design to Browning's earlier M1919 Browning machine gun, which was chambered for the .30-06 cartridge. The M2 uses the much larger and much more powerful .50 BMG cartridge, which was developed alongside and takes its name from the gun itself (BMG standing for Browning Machine Gun). It has been referred to as "Ma Deuce",[5] in reference to its M2 nomenclature. The design has had many specific designations; the official designation for the current infantry type is Browning Machine Gun, Cal. .50, M2, HB, Flexible. It is effective against infantry, unarmored or lightly armored vehicles and boats, light fortifications and low-flying aircraft. The M2 machine gun has been in production longer than any other machine gun.

The Browning .50 caliber machine gun has been used extensively as a vehicle weapon and for aircraft armament by the United States from the 1930s to the present. It was heavily used during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Falklands War, and during the Iraq War and War in Afghanistan in the 2000s and 2010s. It is the primary heavy machine gun of NATO countries, and has been used by many other countries. The M2 has been in use longer than any other small arm in U.S. inventory except the .45 ACP M1911 pistol, also designed by John Browning.

The American Expeditionary Force's commander General John J. Pershing asked for a larger caliber machine gun.[10] Pershing asked the Army Ordnance Department to develop a machine gun with a caliber of at least 0.50 inches (12.7 mm) and a muzzle velocity of at least 2,700 feet per second (820 m/s).[9]U.S. Col. John Henry Parker, commanding a machine gun school in France, observed the effectiveness of a French 11 mm (0.43 in) incendiary armor-piercing round. The Army Ordnance Department ordered eight experimental Colt machine guns rechambered for the French 11-mm cartridge.[11] The French had developed a prototype machine gun for an even larger caliber.

 

In WOT, M2 Browning appear in MANY tank all over the game, not only Murican tank, but also Jap, UK, French high tier tank (Like STB-1. 50B etc)

3. 7.62mm M73/M219

The M73 and M219 were 7.62 mm NATO caliber machine guns designed for tank use. It was used on the M48 Patton and M60 Patton MBT series (including the M728 Combat Engineer Vehicle), and on the M551 Sheridan Armored Reconnaissance / Airborne Assault Vehicle (AR/AAV).

Designed primarily as a coaxial machine gun by the Rock Island Arsenal and produced by General Electric, the M73 was developed as a replacement for the M1919A4E1, M1919A5, and M37 machine guns that continued to serve in the immediate post-World War II environment.

The Machine Gun, 7.62-MM, M73 was officially adopted in 1959. It is an air-cooled, recoil operated machine gun, but also using cartridge gasses to boost recoil. Though designed as a simplified alternative to the M1919 series, was of almost identical weight. The weapon was fitted with a quick-change barrel, pull-chain charging assembly, and could be made to feed from the left or the right hand side (though the left-hand feed was more common).[1]

 

In WoT, M73 appear on most Murican high tier tank. Some tank have huge tumor like E5, M48, M60 or T71 usually have M73 inside that tumor. And T49 with XM551 turret also have M73 as co-axial gun

Germany

 

1. Mg34 

The Maschinengewehr 34, or MG 34, is a German recoil-operated air-cooled machine gun that was first tested in 1929 and was introduced in 1934, and first issued to units in 1936. It accepts the 7.92×57mm Mauser cartridge.

The versatile MG 34 was arguably the most advanced machine gun in the world at the time of its adoption and deployment with the German Army.[2] It entered service in great numbers following Hitler's repudiation of the Versailles Treaty in 1936, and was first tested by German troops aiding Franco's Nationalists in the Spanish Civil War. The MG 34 combined two then-rarely combined characteristics into a substantial advantages over other machine guns: mobility, being light enough to be carried by a single soldier;and a high rate of fire of up to 800 to 900 rounds per minute.[2]

As such, it can generally be considered to be the world's first general-purpose machine gun.[3]

 

MG 34 Panzerlauf

Most German tanks used during World War II used the MG 34 Panzerlauf for secondary armament. The MG 42 was ill-suited for internal/coaxial mounting due to the method of barrel change. The main difference of the MG 34 Panzerlauf and the regular MG 34 was the heavier almost solid armored barrel shroud, almost completely lacking the ventilation holes of the basic MG 34. When mounted inside a tank, the MG 34 also lacked a butt-stock. A kit for quick conversion to ground use was carried inside the tank containing a butt-stock and a combined bi-pod and front sight assembly.

In WOT, MG34 appear in many German tank with both normal variant and Tank variant.

 

Bonus : MG34 also used as model of DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle of Clone Trooper, StarWar.

2. MG42

The MG 42 (shortened from German: Maschinengewehr 42, or "machine gun 42") is a 7.92×57mm Mauser general purpose machine gun designed in Nazi Germany and used extensively by the Wehrmacht during the second half of World War II. Intended to replace the more expensive and time-consuming to manufacture frontline MG 34, it ended up produced side by side until the end of the war.

 

 

The MG 42 has a proven record of reliability, durability, simplicity, and ease of operation, but is most notable for its ability to produce a high volume of suppressive fire. The MG 42 had one of the highest average cyclic rate of any single-barreled man-portable machine gun: between 1,200 and 1,500 rpm, which results in a distinctive muzzle report.

 

The MG 42's lineage continued past Nazi Germany's defeat, forming the basis for the nearly identical NATO round chambered MG1 (MG 42/59), which subsequently evolved into the MG1A3, then the Bundeswehr's MG 3. It also spawned the Swiss MG 51, Zastava M53,SIG MG 710-3, Austrian MG 74, and the Spanish 5.56mm Ameli light machine gun, and lent many design elements to the American M60 and Belgian MAG. The MG 42 was adopted by a number of armed organizations after the war, and was both copied and built under licence.

 

The method of barrel change made the MG 42 unsuitable for secondary or co-axial armament on World War II era German tanks with the exception of the Jagdpanzer IV. Early versions of the Jagdpanzer IV carried two standard (no modification made) MG 42's on both sides of the gun mantlet/glacis, firing through a ball slot which was protected by an armored cover (with the MG 42 retracted) when not in use. Later version Jagdpanzer IV's carried only one MG 42 on the left side.

 

3. MG3 and FN MAG

 

Wiki said Leopard 1 use Mg3 and FN MAG as co-axial gun, but I dont think WG model them on Leo1 ingame (I think bcs Leo1 in game are very first variant of Leopard so they dont have full armament)

1. Besa Machine Gun

The Besa Machine Gun was a British version of the CzechoslovakZB-53 air-cooled, belt-fed machine-gun, which in the Czechoslovak army was marked as the TK vz. 37.[note 1] It was used extensively by the armed forces of United Kingdom during the Second World War, as a mounted machine gun for tanks and other armoured vehicles, to replace the heavier, water-cooled Vickers machine gun. Although it required a rather large opening in the tank's armour, it was dependable and reliable. The name came from the Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA), who signed an agreement with Československá zbrojovka to manufacture the gun in the UK. The War Office ordered the weapon in 1938, and production began in 1939, after modifications.

 

 

15 mm BESA

A larger, heavier - at 57 kg (125 lb) - 15 mm version, also belt-fed, was developed by BSA from the Czechoslovak ZB vz.60 heavy machine-gun as vehicle armament. It could be fired in semi-automatic mode as well as fully automatic. It was used on the Light Tank Mk VIC and on armoured cars such as the Humber Armoured Car Marks I-III. Over 3,200 15mm BESA were manufactured until it was declared obsolete in 1949.[2] It fired a 75 gram bullet from a 15 x 104 mm cartridge with a velocity of 900 m/s (3,000 ft/s). A few of the original ZB-60 guns were also used by the SS although mostly with the ammunition of the MG 151/15, which was slightly shorter having a case length of only 101 mm.[3] The 15 mm Besa was fed from 25-round metal belts, which limited its practical rate of fire, although the weapon was usually used for single shots as it was difficult to fire accurately in automatic mode.[4]

 

In-WOT, Besa 15mm work as main gun Vickers Medium Mk. I, Cruiser Mk. III and Light Mk.IVC.  And Besa 7,92mm work as hull machinegun on most UK mid-tier tank such as  Valentine, Tetrach, Churchill, Maltida, Crusader, Comet …. (same like M1919 30. Cal Browning on Murica tank)

                   
                   

 

2. Bren Machine Gun

The Bren Gun, usually called simply the Bren, was a series of light machine guns adopted by Britain in the 1930s and used in various roles until 1992. While best known for its role as the British and Commonwealth forces' primary infantry light machine gun (LMG) in World War II, it was also used in the Korean War and saw service throughout the latter half of the 20th century, including the 1982 Falklands War. Although fitted with a bipod, it could also be mounted on a tripod or vehicle-mounted.

The Bren was a modified version of Czechoslovak-designed light machine guns, the ZB vz. 26 and its descendants, which British Army officials had tested during a firearms service competition in the 1930s. The later Bren featured a distinctive top-mounted curved box magazine, conical flash hider and quick change barrel. The name Bren was derived from Brno, Moravia, the Czechoslovak city where the Zb vz. 26 was originally designed (in Zbrojovka Brno Factory), and Enfield, site of the British Royal Small Arms Factory. The original and main designer was Václav Holek, a talented gun inventor and design engineer.

In WOT, Bren work as mounted gun on some UK tank like Sexton I or hull MG on Crommie, Comet and Archer

Hardest part of this thread

 

1. Reibel Machine Gun (I not sure about this MG, but atleast it look like dual Mg on top of BC25t and AMX50100)

The Reibel machine gun (official French designation Mitrailleuse mle 1931 - "machine gun, model of 1931"), was a machine gun used on French tanks of the World War II era as well as in fortifications such as the Maginot line.

 

The Reibel machine gun is a gas operated weapon chambered in the 7.5 mm MAS cartridge and was loaded with 150-round drum magazines. The variant used in fortifications was specifically modified with a different rifling to accommodate the balle D heavy ball type of ammunition.[1]

Some other guns in French service during the late 1940s were converted to ground role, with adoption of the side-mounted 35-roundbox magazines and adapters for US M2 tripods.

The Reibel machine gun is a gas operated weapon which fires from open bolt and in full automatic mode only. It is derived from the French FM 24/29"Fusil-Mitrailleur' also designed by Lt Colonel Reibel. The long stroke gas piston is located below the barrel, and it operates the vertically tilting bolt group. The barrel cannot be removed and replaced in the field. Feed is from multi-layer pan magazines that hold 150 rounds of ammunition (with bullets pointing to the center of the round magazine). Depending on the variant, the magazines can be installed on right or left side of the gun, in vertical plane. Ejection is straight down, through the short chute attached to the base of the receiver. Firing controls include a pistol grip with prominent front-curved shape, and a rifle-type trigger. Normally, a shoulder rest is attached directly to the receiver.

2. Hotchkiss M1929 13,2mm

 

The 13.2 mm Hotchkiss machine gun was a heavy machine gun designed and manufactured by Hotchkiss et Cie from the late 1920s until World War II when it saw service with various nation's forces, including Japan where the gun was built under licence.[1]

 

In the late 1920s, Hotchkiss proposed a range of anti-aircraft automatic weapons in the 13.2, 25 and 37 mm calibres. They were all based on the same type of gas-operated action. The 8 mm mle 1914 machine gun had proven extremely reliable during World War I and was still in service. Hotchkiss also advertised the 13.2 mm machine gun as an infantry weapon, that could be fitted on conventional tripods and be used against light armour. French infantry commanders, that had expressed interest in acquiring light anti-aircraft guns, refused the 13.2 mm. They argued that those heavy bullets falling down could be dangerous to friendly troops, and went to larger calibres where self-destructing shells were available. But the 13.2 mm Hotchkiss saw extensive use as a naval gun, and was also chosen by the French cavalry for some of its armoured vehicles..

The 13.2 mm Hotchkiss was used on the Belgian T15 (a combat vehicle) and the French AMR 35, light tanks as well as the AMD Laffly 80 AM[1]armoured car and on fortifications. The Japanese mounted license-produced version of the gun on a number of Type 92 Heavy Armoured Cars which had initially been armed with only a pair of 6.5mm machine guns.

(Japanese's 13.2mm Hotchkiss)

In WOT, 13,2mm Hotchkiss work as main gun of some French low tier like H35, Renault FT

1.Type97

The Type 97 tank heavy machine gun (九七式車載重機関銃 Kyū-nana-shiki shasai jū-kikanjū?) was the standard machine gun used in tanks and armored vehicles of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II, a light machine gun by infantry forces,[1] This weapon was not related to the Type 97 aircraft machine gun used in several Japanese Navy aircraft including the A6M Zero.

 

During the early stages of the Second Sino-Japanese War, Japanese forces captured a number of Czech ZB vz/26 light machine guns from China’s National Revolutionary Army; its numerous design advantages led to the development of the Type 97. This was used in a modified form for armored vehicles until 1940, when the Japanese Army switched to a rimless 7.7 mm cartridge.

 

The Type 97 was mechanically similar to the Czech ZB vz. 26, with a different stock and pistol grip. It had a straight, vertical, 20-round box magazine and used the same 7.7 mm cartridges used in the Type 99 rifle. The light gun barrel could easily overheat, which meant the gunner had to fire in bursts, or the barrel would be shot out.[2]

In WOT, Type97 work as most Japan Tank from tier 3 to 7, and even appear on top of ChiNuKai

 

 

2. Sumimoto NTK 62 (Type 62/74)

 

The Sumitomo NTK-62 (62式7.62mm機関銃 Rokuni-shiki Nana-ten-rokuni-miri Kikanjū?) is the standard issue GPMG of the Japan Self-Defense Forces, known as the Type 62 GPMG. Though the Sumitomo Heavy Industries' M249 has largely replaced it in the JGSDF,[6][7] the weapon still plays a support role as it is still used as a co-axial weapon in various armored vehicles, including tanks and APCs, as well as being a medium support machine gun.

Like most modern Japanese-made firearms, it was never exported.[3]

 

After years of using the Browning M1919A4 as its standard GPMG during the early days of founding the Japan Self-Defense Forces, Sumitomo Heavy Industries had manufactured the NTK-62 GPMG, designed at Nittoku Metal Industry (NTK) by Masaya Kawamura's team. The GPMG was made to meet the requirements of the Japanese Defense Agency.[1] The designation "62" was present due to the fact that first batches of the NTK-62 were made in 1962 after development started in 1954.[2] It was specifically adopted on February 15, 1962, effectively replacing the M1919 Browning machine gun in J.G.S.D.F service.[1]

 

The Sumitomo NTK-62 is a gas operated machine gun chambered in the 7.62mm NATO cartridge, belt fed with the use of M13 disintegrating links.[3] It has an unusual feed tray as the pivoting lever is above the bolt in the receiver rather than in the feed tray cover found on most machine guns.[8]

One can tell the difference between the NTK-62 from the FN MAG by the bipod, barrel, buttstock, and pistol grip as these changes were possibly made to suit Japan Self-Defense Forces' guidelines and standards.

 

Type 74

The Type 74 (74式車載7.62mm機関銃 Nanayon-shiki Shasai Nana-ten-rokuni-miri Kikanjū?) is a fixed mount variant for AFV use, including the Type 74 Nana-Yon (a.k.a STB1), Type 90 and Type 10 MBTs, Mitsubishi Type 89 IFV and the Komatsu Type 87 Reconnaissance Vehicle.[9]

It weighs 20.4 kg (45.0 lb), unlike the Type 62 which weighs 10.15 kg (22.4 lb).[10]

Wiki said Type74 work as STB-1's co-axial gun, but i really dont know what "hole" on STB-1's gun manlet are co-axial gun


my english it very bad (damn grammar) :angry:

Have a +1, interesting read on a slow Monday.

 

You missed out 1 sentence of Vietnamese under the batchat picture: "Trong wot , Reibel được thấy xuất hiện trên nóc của BatChat25t với 2 khẩu lắp song song trên cùng 1 giá súng có nhiệm vụ phòng không"

 

Also, Nana-Yon is Japanese for Seven Four, aka 74 (the type's designation), not a name in itself like Chi Nu.

and about Nana-yon, i dont know what this mean, just saw wiki write : http://en.wikipedia....ype_74_Nana-yon - Type 74 Nana-yon and i thought it just the name like Chi-nu, Chiri :P
