The Urga Vdova 89 is a weapon in Just Cause 3.


It's a light machine gun with a box magazine.

In a promotional picture, it was apparently once possible to carry two of them, despite them being two-handed weapons. That has not been seen (nor is it even possible) in the final game and can be considered Cut game content from Just Cause 3.

The magazine appears to be based on the M60 light machine gun, but the overall design is based on the PKM. It also bears a strong resemblance to the Vz. 59 LMG.

The Rebel drop description says "A heavy hitter, the URGA Vdova 89 makes up for lower accuracy with raw firepower and a massive magazine. Even if you miss a lot, you're sure to obliterate your target.

The weapon is Annika's weapon of choice as shown in cutscenes.

Based on a small writing in the weapon as seen in the infobox image, the Vdova is chambered for 7.62x51mm rounds. This is the standard NATO cartridge. It's common for nations to standardize their weapons whenever they can afford to, as it would cost a lot of money and be very inconvenient to have several different cartridge sizes.

It is should be noted that while this weapon is referred to as a light machine gun, the weapons this weapon are based on are actually general-purpose machine guns (medium MGs). GPMGs are can be adapted to either the light or medium machine gun roles, can fire full-powered rifle cartridges and are suited for a variety of roles, from bipod/tripod-mounted infantry support, to deployment as a helicopter door gun, or a vehicle-mounted support weapon. The main difference is the size and mass. A person would not fire a medium MG from the shoulder, while standing up, simply because it would be very uncomfortable.

Despite its rather poor accuracy, this weapon will not fail any user.


It has a slower rate of fire than the SMGs and full-auto assault rifles, but its high magazine capacity makes it a great weapon for continuous firefights. Ammunition is available at dead soldiers, if you're at a military base, but you would likely run out at a police station. Its stopping power is very effective against enemy soldiers, but sustained fire will be required to destroy vehicles, boats or helicopters. It has the same damage per bullet as the CS27 Misfortune, while being much less accurate.
