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.

it's why you have krak grenades and panzerfausts.

Unrelated to anything, but I'll never forget when playing an early game of Advanced Squad Leader that my allied force hiding behind the stone wall, or within the stone building, learned that all (most?) German infantry units had free, inherent Panzerfausts.

It's, like, a single sentence in the rulebook that I unsurprisingly missed.

"Oh. Thanks. Good to know."

My units did not fare well...

So, Infojunky, are you saying that you don't agree with Matt's statement?

What I am am saying is the difference isn't worth the money.
