    I'm continually surprised every time I return to the forums after several months and this topic is still at the top of the NVS thread....

    I think the L85 has been suggested before. I don't remember in specific what the problem was, but it seemed to pretty much get the same reaction a standard AUG proposal was. I think the FAMAS is the only bullpup "sanctioned" by the Inf team, or atleast, it's the only one we're going to see in Inf for a long time.

    Yes, but the P90 in 2.9 is apparently not as inaccurate as it is in RL.

    LOL, I forgot about the P90... That thing is in a group all it's own. Correct me if I'm wrong but I remember a year or two back on the forums someone found some technical data listing its semi auto groupings at 50m like 5 inches or something like that, something about the 5.7 round made it curve after a certain distance. So maybe the accuracy was reduced in 2.9 to reflect that data?

    The thing about the P90 is it seems like the bullpup configuration is not there to improve the weapon's power and accuracy over other SMGs, it's more like it's bullpup to prevent the power and accuracy from being any worse. :(

    Ordinarily I wouldn't trust the manufacturer (anyone who knows anything about wound ballistics will laugh at their claims of how "lethal" the SS190 round is because "it tumbles"), but since they're used to provide specifications this bad to the public, it makes you really wonder...

    I had to use the Internet Archive since they changed their site to keep rid of it. If you don't believe this, just email them and ask nicely.

    You know, that's only 164 feet. So those kind of groups still suck at that range. I'd expect that kind of group from a pistol, not a SMG that fires little bullets doing almost Mach3 with a barrel of that length. I think my paintball marker can print groups like that at that range!! :) (well ok, I get those groups at about 130'...but still)
