Default Appropriate replacement for MEC battle rifles

Not a Suggestion!

It sucks being forced to use battle rifles in PR. High recoil, not enough damage or ammo. Useless in full auto. Being forced to use them in semi auto is even worse. Yes I know some people are in love battle rifles and swear by them, but overall the concept of the battle rifle has been outdated since 1947.

Hypothetically what would be a good weapons platform to replace the MEC's battle rifles? I was thinking the vanilla BF2 MEC got it right with the AK101. A 5.56 russian made AK would be an appropriate replacement for the big slow heavy G3. Coupled with a 5.56 RPK or PKM for the automatic rifleman. And an AK102 carbine for rear line troops like HAT and Crewman. It would suck losing the MG3 and MP5 but it's a tradeoff I'm willing to make for better combat capability for all other kits.

What do you guys think?

If you say it's not a suggestion but then you make a suggestion anyways, doesn't that make it a suggestion?

I'm only soliciting community ideas, to gauge the popularity and feasibility of such an idea.

Nah keep the G3. More AK variants would suck.

Maybe KH-2002, not enough bullpups in the game. But Its up to the community to make it, I'm not interesting in modelling so don't ask me. I'm just giving ideas.

I'd rather keep the G3 until MEC gets split off into it's proper factions. As it stands, it's appropriate for a faction with lots of Iranian inspiration.
G3 is my favorite gun in game that isn't a MG. It's accurate, powerful, with the trade off being weaker performance in CQB.
Also, while there is an RPK-74M chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO called the RPK-201, no middle eastern nation uses them to my knowledge.

But the mec dont even speak farsi. Hell I wouldn't mind if the mec had some sort of AK variant. Any AK variant at this point. I love the syrian rebels because they're the closest to my ideal vision of a proper middle eastern faction.

If the mec ever get split into two factions. I'd love it if one version of the faction used old school russian small arms. They'd need scoped; AKM, RPK, and PKM to really make them a proper faction. Forget the makarov though give them a hi-power.

True, but they are largely based on Iranian army.

There were plans for SAA faction as part of Syrian Civil War mod? (project?) which would have AKs. In same time, MEC got new skins to get them closer to irl SAA.

Personally, I would not mind some experimentation whit scopes on G3. Everybody having marksman scope does sound silly.

But they're equipped as Iranians.
G3's, MG3's, MP5's, Boragh's, Milan's, T-72S's, copies of the SIG P226, FV-101's, all notable equipment of the Iranian Army.
