An interesting 30-06 SLR...

A swiss-designed rifle submitted for testing by the US. Although there are no records of this rifle seeing combat in WWI, it still saw testing throughout the conflict, so it might be another good prototype weapon for BF1.

Since it's chambered for .30-06, it would be interesting to see what sort of damage model it could use.

    Any .30-06 SLR would have been interesting. But Medic got shafted the most in terms of DLC guns in terms of actually adding something new to the kit play style wise.

    Maybe it wasn't added because the unique low drag + high velocity would have made it too good as a long range weapon? Or at least overshadow the other range SLRs. Unless they gave it some trash damage model.

    I figure it would have pretty high recoil but excellent bullet velocity and minimum damage (not quite high enough for a 2-shot kill without headshots, but still very good compared to the other rifles).

    The predecessor of the Fedorov Avtomat was a semi-auto rifle that fired 7.62x54R. Seems like it would have a similar damage model since it's 7.62 but with a slower velocity and a bit less recoil.
