I'm not sure about MG42/DP28 on-the-move stats, if they are "elite" or anything like that, and how they compare to Commando Bred and Para 1919.


Slightly off-topic, but that's another weird thing - there are some inconsistencies between normal and fire-on-the-move versions of LMGs. First of all, there are actually 3 weapon profiles for LMGs: regular (one that can't fire on the move), moving (one that can fire on the move) and moving_no_prone (only Obersoldaten get this one and as the name suggests - it can fire on the move and has disabled prone-firing).

For M1919A6, their accuracy compares as follows: regular > moving > moving_no_prone. There's a sharp drop in accuracy between the last two and the regular version fires slightly shorter bursts.

For LMG-34 it's: moving_no_prone = moving > regular. Additionally, regular deals only 4 damage compared to 6 of the "elite" versions.

For LMG-42 it's: regular > moving = moving_no_prone. Both of the moving versions have slightly shorter reload on average.

For DP-28 it's: regular > moving = moving_no_prone. This is the only one without any hidden "bonus features".

Vickers K and Bren obviously can't be compared in this manner.

Think this has to do with the fact that only Obers use the "good" Lmg34 other units get lower version since the weapon was too good on other squads.
