I don't know if this was thrown out before or if this is something already in the works, but I would like to see the Mk. 19 and the AGS 30 make an appearance in the game. I think it'll be a nice addition to make the MRAPs and Stryker more usable by having a M2 and a Mk. 19 variant. And then add an AGS 30 alongside to give the Russian an advantage as well, maybe adding it to the BMP-2 or any other APC to counter the MRAPs as well. Thanks!

You are suggesting grenadier class with fully automatic grenade launchers, on armor.... what could go wrong? Perhaps Stryker variant would be nice, since it will be HE variant of 30mm BTR with barely any armor penetration, and stationary AGS or have Russian Tiger MRAP added in with it to replace BTR on certain maps... but the balance issues are already screaming.

Yeh MK19/MK47 and AGS30 should really be in the game as statics and on vehicles. Would really add a lot of spice to emplacement combat, for example overlooking the valley on Logar, being able to suppress large areas.

I think devs dont know yet how to balance them(because of lack of anti vehicle weapons and small maps).thats why they adding old ass junk vehicles to russians instead of modern first.all russian modern ifvs/apc,s have high anti infantry capabilities.they would just wipe infantry.imagine if we would had btr 90,s(any model of 3 exist)instead of btr 8* junk,bmp 3+bmp2m and tiger armored jeeps with 30mm cannons.For example in arma 2/3 huge ass maps 3km+ with open field,thermals working,good gun stabilization but vehicles less powerfull than in squad because of good anti tank weapons and quantity(rockets)

While the Russian have some new and modern stuff the bulk is older equipment. The T-72B3 and the BMP-2 is for ex the the most numerous tank/IFV so its natural that they have them in game. BTR 90 production was also halted and is in service only in limited numbers so it should be their main APC in game.

Well, this gets basically posted every week on Reddit and down here from time to time. The BMP-2M (which I think is confirmed) has an AGS-30 so I think this makes the MK.19 very possible.

This game is based on "fantasy" Russia vs America conflict and also its not military simulator.you dont have to make political correct game.it would be more fun to make with all available real life tech in this conflict that could potentially happen(without nuclear weapons.LoL)

P.S just for fun stats.new BTR 82a cost russia only 350000$ dollars per unit,main reason they didnt bought btr 90 is price awcorse.in early 90s first generation of btr 90 had 510 hp engine with automatic gearbox,ability to turn on one place(4 front wheels going left and 4 back wheels going right(yes back wheels can turn aswell :)) with optional by default air conditioner and thermal sights+ armor that protects from 50 cal bullets all sides+shit tons of weaponry.now just imagine how much money they saved for not buying it(sadly)
