The Weapons Thread!

Recommended Posts

Ooh yeah. If KS gets to 300,000 and we get Armed forces of the Russian Federation... so much cool stuff. Especially in scopes and reticles, Obzor, NIT-A... And, how fucking cool would the PKP-2C periscope be: http://russianoptics.net/PKP-2C.html

 

From a look at the livestream they're using render-to-texture for more realistic 3d scopes so a periscope should definitely be possible. Another possibility is they could make the AK-12 with only minor changes to the barrel and magazine in orer to have versions shooting 5.45, 5.56, 6.5 Grendel, 7.62x39 and 7.62x51. Which is pretty damned impressive.

I would love to see the return of the Lee-Enfield, but this time the Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk 2, love that gun.

 

PR used to have a No. 4 style Lee-Enfield. It changed 1.0 I believe, but an unscoped Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk1 (I believe) was the alternate Sniper kit for most unconventional factions, and it used to spawn on the ground on the Insurgent maps alongside the SVD's and scoped Lee-Enfields. It was also the primary for Taliban Medics.

I know, that's why I said I'd love to see the return of it :P

I'd also like to see the G3 and MG3 return (along with an entire MEC faction of sorts)

Well the G3 could definitely fit a Taliban or Insurgent team in the meantime. An MG3 not so much, though.

Well there were some in circulation together with the G3's in Irans army which could've found their way there somehow. And I've seen some MG3's (or MG42's, but I've seen quite some StG44's there, so who knows) around in Syria the last months, but you're right, they would be rather sparsely used, RPKs, or to some extent RPDs would be more likely.

I'd really like to see man-portable, deployable ATGMs like the Metis-M in Squad. They are used in large numbers by the Russian military and several other militaries and insurgent groups, and are a big part of their anti-armor doctrines.

 

Overall, I just want to see fairly realistic weapon selections and loadouts for the different factions. The most important thing is that an AKM is put in the game (and not an "AK-47") and that it serves as the primary weapon for the current Taliban faction as well as future Arab insurgent forces, as is the case in real life. I'm hoping that the Taliban being outfitted with AK-74s is mostly placeholder, although that weapon is fine for the officer kit.

 

In regards to the AKS-74U, I'd rather the Taliban not have them, as that gun is exceptionally rare among their regular fighters. I think an AKMS would serve the role well as a rifle for the AT kit, as it can have lesser accuracy/recoil performance in game to account for the poor stock. I do think the AKS-74U is an interesting weapon, but it was not widely exported outside the former USSR. A few have been spotted in Syria (but in much fewer numbers than full length AK-74s and AK-74Ms, but even those are in relatively small numbers), but they were significantly more rare in Iraq (and often confused with the much more prevalent but quite different Serb M92s), and in Afghanistan the few that remain are mostly trophy weapons with scarce ammo. I think authentic substitutes can be found. But I do agree with dvsilverwing in that the G3 could be considered for the Taliban, in fact I think I've seen more pictures of Taliban fighters with scoped G3s than with Dragunovs. Both Pakistan and Iran, which border Afghanistan, use the G3 as their main service rifle, so a few end up in Afghanistan. Developing a G3 would also decrease the work for creating an Iranian military faction down the road, which would prove useful for future Middle East scenarios.

Some variation of the M1911 would make me a happy camper. Maybe an old M1911A1 for a militia/insurgent faction, and a MEU(SOC) 1911 for a USMC group if/once that's implemented. I know the M1911 isn't widely fielded in the Marines, and I don't know if Squad would drill down to such a low level tier of a faction that would field the specific weapon. But, it'd be sweet.

If this will be like PR, you will only get the weapon that the specific faction/unit is issued with. 

 

Take assault rifle as an example:

 

US army gets m4/m16

British army gets L85A2

Russian army gets AK 74

 

So as a russian soldier you won't be able to use an m4 and vica versa.
