In late 2005, a Russian mineral exploration company discovered a series of large oilfields in southern Sudan. Sudan’s Military government, with its ability to hold the newly revitalised Sudanese People’s Liberation Army at bay beginning to falter, decided this new source of oil was its one sure-fire way to hold onto power.

The "Kord" is the newest development in
the heavy MG class. It is developed and
manufactured at Kovrov Mechanikal Plant (ZID -
V.A.Degtyarev plant JSC), Russia.
The "Kord" will replace the
now-in-service NSV-12.7 and NSVT "Utes"
MGs. The main reasons for this replacement are 1)
need for more accurate heavy MG and 2) the fact
that "Utes" MGs are manufactured in
Ukraine and the supply of both new MGs and spare
parts are limited since the desintegration of
USSR.
