You have just seized control of the United States in a bloodless coup. You have complete dictatorial control of the government. You have the full unquestioning support of the military.

How do you arm your forces? What would you choose for:

1. Sidearm
2. Basic rifle
3. Crew served machinegun

You will, of course, have the ability to tool up govenment arsenals to manufacture any weapon, past or present, with utter disregard for patent and copyright laws.

IMHO:

I'd change the pistol to a Sig or Glock.

Rifle is fine with the M-16 family.

M240 and M249 seem fine too.

No need to change the M-2 or MK-19.

There are only 2 things I would change. The sidearm and the rifle, in part. It would be a .45 pistol. I am split betwenn the USP or a 1911A1 ala PARA ORDNANCE type pistol. Soldiers ould be alloewd to carry their own as long as the ammo was in the inventory, 9mm or .45. The M4/M16 series would remain, but I would add a 7.62x51mm Rifle into the squad. The crew served at the Plt level are good as they are. The replacement for the Browning M2 (20mm) looks promising and I would go with that. There would be a whole MTOE rewstructuring Military wide. Oh, and did I mention a draft.

The 1911A1 is definitely back in service with a few refinements like sigths, Stainless steel/ titainium, enlarged grip frame with greater capacity.

The M16 is upgraded to 6.8 SPC or even a better cartridge

The M249 is upgraded to 6.8SPC or better also with stainless steel/titainium

The M240 in 7.62X 51(308) is made with Stainless steel/titainium

The M-2 in .50BMG is upgraded with stainless /titainium

of coarse all SS would be blackened or camo

M1911A1

M16A3

But I wouldn't allow a dictatorship to run the nation, even if it was me.

I would arm them with a Blonde , a Brunette and a Margarita as they wouldnt have much to do except party because the entire fucking Middle East would all ready be gone.

My thoughts exactly.

I was going to say I'd give each of them the "Big Red Button". That should about solve any problems we have, at least abroad.

That is the best idea I have ever heard, throw in a Redhead and a case of beer and you have a real winner

Hollowpoints, Softpoints. etc.

A nice 1911 single stack in .45 of course something like the Kimber Warrior and using a good JHP.
M4 in 6.5 grendel just to be different
Saw converted to the 6.5

Biggest difference would be training. All would be thoroughly trained in small arms regardless of which service they were in.

Are the remote control looking lasers from star trek out of the question?
