Like the P008.8 the K42 is an example of New Prussian weapons of the conflict war era. This 8.8mm assault rifle with integrated flamethrower was used extensively by New Prussian forces during the Conflict War era. It combined excellent armour penetration and range from the primary action with lethal close quarters and urban combat capacities granted by the under-barrel flamethrower.
The K42 weights 4 kg.
Surviving examples are all museum pieces or in the hand of private collectors.
