Yeah if your infantry has a 55 suppression MG and you can pick between an SMG, AR and a BR, always go with the BR first, AR second, SMG last because the combined suppression is very important in forests. BR+MG3 is especially good.
Carbine is also the best weapon you can get for your infantry so if you have choice between a carbine and anything else, get the carbine. Carbine+Minimi beats BR+MG3.
Numbers say Carbine+MG3 should beat Carbine+Minimi but I'm not 100% certain on that. Someone should test that out.
Are they all calculated at max range? Might be interesting to scale the number to, say forrest combat distance 307m so between 350 and 245. Mix in damage reduction modifier, which would reduce the importance of dps in relation to suppression, the results would be quite interesting
