Infantry calibers and upression system

Yep, this is still in ALB. Bigger caliber - bigger supression.

Allow me to introduce you rifle one shot from which can scare whole batallion :lol:

Not sure why 7.62 should give more supression than 5.45 in game where one shoot = one kill.
Or at least reduce that difference in supression, 35% too much. 140 and 150 should be fine, it will keep diversity but not so big disbalance.

From wikipedia:
5,56 Otan 5,56 x 45 mm 3,95–5,18 g 930–772 m/s 1 700–1 830 J
7,62 Otan 7,62 x 51 mm 9,33 g 838 m/s 3 275 J

The 7.62 is a lot heavier. That means a lot more kinetic energy. That means the bullet is a lot more scary.

Wait, why is the MAT-49 listed as 5.56mm?

I'm assuming that will be fixed in due time.

All this kinetic energy unimportant when one hit - one kill.

What makes the AK-74 less accurate than the m16 or even the AKM?

To Konthra and Alex, balancing was not even discussed in beta, so consider all this a placeholder.

The accuracy stat doesn't really have anything to do with the weapon itself; the same rifle has very different accuracy stats depending on which infantry type is firing it.

Oh, I'm aware. I guess I'm just nitpicking insignificant details.

You use a rifle and not assault rifle 7.62 cartridge in comparison.

In WEE supression was also scaled to calliber.

Now... Lets hope Specnaz gets VAL and or VSS.

I am hoping the rate of fire on the MG3 also has a certain say on the suppression effect. Not to mention the other GPMGs
