>I would think the SAW is more generally useful - for instance it is
single-man portable.  From the stats of the AGL, just the weapon itself
77 lbs, not counting mount, tripod or ammo.  IIRC the SAW is just 1/2
weight, and so can be carried by a single man.

IIRC a 5.56mm SAW is something like 18 pounds, and a 7.62mm is around

>You can carry more ammo for the SAW.  You probably get 30 AGL round per
can and it's looks larger than a similar ammo can for the SAW.	In
addition, the SAW is useful at ALL ranges.  If the AGL is similar to the
standard GL grenades, then minimum distance is about 45 feet (or however
many rotations of the shell in flight (7?)) before it arms.  If it hits
at 20 feet, you are going to have a nasty bruise, but aren't going to be
tomato sauce spread over the landscape.  The SAW on the other hand will
turn you into swiss cheese at that range.

Okay, good points.  Now, how do we incorporate this in to SG2?
