i really want to see 2 johnson against 6 stgs,2 mg42. Well...i want to see as will be.
Well... if you go one on one and your 101st has 2 Johnsons and oponent's squad has 6 STGs then he will rip you apart...if you allow them to get close. 101st are something between elites and normal infantry so you should not be able to take on squads one on one....at least not with the style "I'll place my 101st here in the cover and see how the fight will end up". Also with 2 BARs you now get the supression fire ability which will make it harder for opponent to get close with STGs.
fg42 is a support weapon like mg42
I am no history expert and even less in weapon sector, but is that really true? I mean these weapons were considered to be really good but there were only about 7 000 of them made so I guess they were distributed among the soldiers in low numbers per squad but if there were enough of them, wouldn't more soldiers get equipped with them, so it wouldn't be considered supportive anymore? I repeat - I don't know this for sure it is just my assumption.
