The Madsen-Saetter machine gun was a Danish general-purpose machine gun designed in the early 1950s by Eric Larsen-Saetter. The only customer for the new Madsen-Saetter GPMG was Indonesia, which also obtained a manufacturing license and produced the guns for domestic use at the Pindad factory.

The Madsen-Saetter universal machine gun is a gas operated, air-cooled, belt-fed automatic weapon which fires from an open bolt. The barrel is quick-removable. The Madsen-Saetter GPMG utilizes the long-stroke gas system with the gas piston located below the barrel. The gas block is fitted with a manual gas regulator that permits adjustments for various conditions and rates of fire. Locking is achieved by two lateral flaps, installed in the bolt and forced outwards and into locking recesses in the receiver walls by the firing pin – a system, basically similar to that of Russian Degtyarov machine guns, with minor detailed improvements. The gun fires from open bolt, in automatic mode only. The feed uses non-disintegrating steel belts with open pockets. Each belt consists of 50-round pieces that can be assembled together using a cartridge as an interlink to provide a bigger capacity. The feed is of the push-through type, with a mechanism basically similar to that of the German MG 42. The gun is fitted with a wooden shoulder stock, a pistol grip and a folding bipod. DISA also produced a series of tripod mountings for this gun.
