Part of this is because IMTU I have a cold war brewing between not-NATO and the not-Soviets so I wanted to have some equipment differences even within the same category of weapon (for ACRs, for example, not-NATO has a heavier round for more accurate 'one shot one kill' style shooting (which they can achieve at greater distances due to better individual training and better tech) while the not-Soviets have a more intermediate round better (and cheaper) for volume fire and close in work.)
Interesting idea. Clearly an assault rifle (or ACR, SMG etc.) is a type of weapon, and various companies and nations/blocs/worlds/ can produce the same type of weapon in different calibers (just like here and now) which clearly won't chamber cartridges of the other.
