Agree that zelda should probably be 10 points though and m113 with minigun be buffed to 5
I'm pretty okay with the DPS of the MGs being higher but the suppressive effect of the Minigun should definitely be buffed. Isn't basically the whole point that they sound bloody terrifying?
Also if we're not going so far as to hand them out to regular infantry could we hand them out to MRAAW squads, who are kinda-sorta engineering teams and also somewhat more useful, especially alongside a high suppression transport, than flamethrowers.
