        I don’t understand why you can’t just equip every man with an M249. I’ve played enough milsim shooters to know that the LMG is the weapon that’s doing all of the work in the squad. Just keep spraying in the direction of the enemy and you’ll hit people you can’t even see crawling in a bush 500 meters away.

        >b-but it’s heavy

        It’s less than 20 pounds you fucking pussy, and you even have a sling. If you’re in the military, it’s basically your job to be in shape. You’re paid to workout. Every single soldier should be able to bench 225 lb for reps.

          I'm the one who started by saying all machine guns, and you sissy bitches are ruining it. I said full fucking power rifle rounds. .308 minimum. Just shoot through the walls.

    Optimal: everyone who isn't carrying AT or a MEDIC, MARKSMAN or a Ammo bearer.

    Reality: Rifles are just too flexible and cheap to be discarded

    1:3-1:6, depending on how far away from the supply train you are. The limiting factor is the amount of ammo you can carry per man. It does you no good if everybody gets a beltfed but each man only carries 300 rounds and the next ammo crate is 10 km out.

    Why can’t they be the same thing? Lightweight 5.56 constant recoil AR type rifles fed from quad stack mags and drums. Everyone’s a machine gunner now

      Expense. The USMC is dropping 1500 dollars a gun to do just that, double that of the M4, before counting magazines.

      >AR type rifles
      Your AR will shit poop itself. Get something with an actual piston like a Galil.

      This is the best post and literally what Jim Sullivan, the pioneer of the ar, recently developed. He developed the surefire 100 rnd mags and the surefire bolt to reduce recoil, reduce rate of full auto fire to about 578rpm, and improve gassing. Fucking incredible. Here's the link.

      But Jim Sullivan literally says any walking man with an ar now has more firepower than an lmg gunner.
