Default MAG-58 for Aussies?

Would be one of the best addtions to PR in a long long time. Also the Brits could use it as a basis for their L7A2 GPMG. Its a win win situation.

How you you envision it being used? Would it be a deployable machine gun pit similar to the M2/L2A1 or DShK already in-game? Or.would it be a mounted gun for vehicles (iirc, the L7A2 was mounted on WMIKs in early versions of PR)?

Or would it be a limited/pick-up kit? IRL, it's fairly bulky and heavy, so it might be worth reducing the user's sprint bar or making the weapon only fireable when in the prone/deployed.

Possibly as all three roles. Australians use it as a SSW in real life as well. Why penalize the player for using it? The Russians, Taliban, and Militia all use the PKM, which is comparable in both weight and firepower.

I agree, if it's not used in every squad it could be made as a pick up kit.

My sweet dream,where you can choose AR kit(LMGs like RPK/M249/Negev/MG4 etc) and Machinegunner kit(GMPGs like PK,FN MAG,MG3 etc).
For 128 players it's would be looks nice.

Edit - and remove Guided HAT kit.Put weapons like SMAW.

Do you mean a mount? The Bushmaster is getting the RWS, and thats the only armored troop vehicle proposed for the Australian faction at the moment.

The ASLAV isn't getting a secondary gunners position, since the USMC LAV-25 doesn't feature it either.
