Weird pricing of MG 42 LMG

Is there any reason why the same exact weapon have two different costs? Grenadiers belonging to the Wehrmacht have this upgrade for 85mun while PE Assault Grenadiers have it for 100mun. Am I missing something?

PE ass grens have two abilities that Wehr do not in an effort to make them a little more unique and useful - vehicle suppression and slow down (same as G43 ability).

Heh heh. Ass grens.

Yeah, but these abilties have their own cost already. I dont think that can be the reason for the cost difference.

Generally i think 100 ammo is more appropriate cost. Why? Well, the LMG42 does not have only a higher rof and thus higher dps than for example the MG34 (15 rounds per sec vs 25). It also has higher damage per bullet than the 34 (16-20 for MG34 vs 17-22 for MG42) and the highest of all lmgs. If the only difference would be the rate of fire between 34 and 42, well, then i think 85 ammo is very fair.
