Doesn't have to be in active service, but it does have to be right. They pay someone to get this right, this game is based on a fictional war between Russia and America, the US Army would be fitted out with correct military hardware, so it should have its correct military name and designation.

So what? Most of gun names are either not used because of copyright (trademark is the correct term)\... or a design decision.



Anyways the Military Advisors job is to advise....
