So let's think about GPMGs for a moment. This is going to be a wee bit like re inventing the wheel for us old n bold; but then it did work in 1982! Gunner- Should be the most important bloke in the section, gets the gimpy and (with armour) around 6-800 rounds of link. No 2. Carries another 6-800 rounds. More if they can manage it! No ECM. The Gun Group should be there simply to aim, fire and feed the GPMG! Section members. EVERYONE ELSE should carry at least 100 rounds of link. Preferably 150. In prolonged contact this should be passed up to the Gun Group. The GPMG has a lovely long, heavy barrel with bipod and 7.62mm rounds. Part of Bn shooting team was 800m shoot at triple fig 11 over iron sights. Why has it not got a decent optical sight (x6) And why are we still messing around with Minimi. I know the L85 is fully automatic, but surely you should be pampering that lovely long barrelled, heavy, accurate GPMG! Worked in my day. A good gunner was worth his weight in gold. * The only other weapon aside from the L129 that should be pampered like this is the UGL. Views?
