Yup - the PTRD is quite a beastie... fires a 12.7mm round, with a muzzle velocity of 1,000 m/s. Packs quite a punch :) For the anal amongst us, it hits with about 10 times the impact of a standard 7.62mm sniper round. That would be an "OUCH" ;)

First off, I lied - its a 14.5mm beastie... sorry :cry:

Secondly, it weighs in at an indelicate 17.3 Kg (38 lbs) which really doesn't make it too terribly easy to lug around. And it is very long, single-shot, bolt-action. So, unfortunately, rather cumbersome. Its armour penetration capabilities are way out of date too - it might knock a hole in a 1940 light or, if lucky, medium tank - but no chance today.

However, gawd help any poor sod who got in the way of one of its rounds :devil: !
