Both Allied/German MGs get the same range. Germans get higher RoF but slightly lower accuracy, Allies get higher accuracy but lower RoF.
Do you actually have some hard data to back the usage of Allied MGs in the same way with German MGs, meaning long range direct fire? Or is just a thing you want because you don't like the actual set up?
MG42 was the best HMG of WW2, uncontested. None other of comparable caliber and on tripod was close to it, accuracy, range, rof, whatever you like.
Actually the MGs were more accurate due to shoulder held trigger while the others (Vickers, Besa, Zb, Soviet ones) used traditional HMGs with simple button and handles which made them less accurate.
