'[5thBarget 2nd Inf']I think it's a really good idea if it can be done, but I really doubt that we will ever see this kind of feature, that's just my two cents.
Guys think they wouldn't react to a weapon with 1500rpm (that's 25 rounds/second!!) firing at them! ha ha You are probably correct in your assumption! I don't think we will see this feature either even though it will make the gameplay much more realistic and put the MG at the center of a squad's firepower (maybe that's teh problem...teh game isn't played as squads, it is more freeform?). Ahhh...i can still hope! ha ha
Even today it is still regarded by many experts as the best machine gun ever. The MG42, with minor modifications, is still the primary heavy machine gun of the modern German army, now called the MG3. A number of other armies around the world have adopted versions of the original, and guns looking similar, or identical, to the MG42 remain in widespread service today. The U.S. Army's M-60 is based upon the FG-42 paratrooper rifle (Fallschirmjaegergewehr) and MG42.

Recoil booster? Why would you want to boost that and how can it increase firerate not to have it?
