Making them overlap with Paras makes little sense.
I'm not saying give them LMGs. I'm saying it would be cool if we had the option to choose between Thompsons and long range scoped rifles or something like camouflage. Rangers should have some sort of utility at least like a smoke. There are tons of options for them but we have their worst iteration probably.
Here are some ideas:
> Give them another upgrade for long range like JLI sniper.
> Give them sprint and/or smoke grenades.
> Give them camouflage.
> Give them demo charges.
> Make them benefit from riflemen field defenses.
and many more ideas can be created for them rather than the 3 zook carrier dullness.
