This makes it less effective as an anti-infantry weapon than an APSW/L
most situations (2 chits at Red validity out to 12", vs. 3 chits at
validities out to the same range) - the APSW/H has a very slight edge 
against dug-in troops, but the /L is better against troops in soft cover
well as in the open.

Another option is to simply allow Size Class 0.5 weapons - size, cost
shooting as if they were Size/1 weapons of the same type, but divide any

numerical chits drawn against vehicle targets (not against infantry!) in

half. While this won't help HMGs against infantry (they're still stuck
at 2 
chits, unless the entire RFAC category is improved), it lets us 
differentiate between eg. PIGs and AGLs :-/
