Well, since the US Marines started replacing M249 SAWs with with M27 IARs, I suggest you add the M27 in the ammobox as a replacment so the AR can choose if he'd like to use the SAW or the M27.

I don't need to explain much, it's pretty basic.

i agree the full switch-over started in 2011.
the only thing is do we have this weapon available in game with all the relevant working attachments ect ect ?

here's a lil bit of "quick evidence"

There was a change in doctrine in the USMC which means they've swapped the higher rate of fire for accuracy and also increases manoeuvrability. The M27 is the standard issue automatic rifle for a rifle squad where as the m249 isn't, it became standard issue in 2011. However the USMC keep the m249 in reserve it is not standard issue for a section AR, which is where people get confused.

Sorry I have no idea if we need extra mods or not, so I cant comment on that.

I disagree on this one.

Whilst it is closer to realism, the M27 IAR is a complete ballache as far as keeping sustained, suppressive fire; especially at 600m+

Unless we can find documented evidence of beta c mags being issued on ops, I say we give it a miss

This will not happen due the sole reason there is no m27 IAR in the current modpack and we will not be adding any more mods to it.

Sustained, long range fire isn't the purpose for the M27. Rather than increasing the volume of fire to suppress a target they focus on accuracy which is why they still use the M16 for grunts over the M4

Choice between the two would be great. (Tho it's clearly not going going to be added ^^^^^) But eitherway the whole LMG thing with the M249 was good as it was, I like the idea of having an M4 basically with a longer barrel and bipod but in general the M249 was pretty much perfect and did the job just fine.

The whole M27 I like the idea, but in a certain light it just doesn't make the cut...

Yeah but keep the 249 available, as its on request by commanders for op specific needs
