The MG-3 is a West German general-purpose machine gun chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO cartridge. The weapon's design is derived from the (in)famous World War II era MG 42 universal machine gun that fired the 7.92×57mm Mauser round.

The MG-3 was standardized in the late 1950s and adopted into service with the newly formed Bundeswehr, where it continues to serve to this day as a squad support weapon and vehicle-mounted machine gun. The weapon and its derivatives have also been acquired by the armed forces of over 30 countries.
