Second anti-material rifle?

The other anti-material rifle that was used in WWII was the Lahti L-39, are we ever going to see a second anti-material rifle by DICE?
Because all rifle classes should have a minimal of two I wish DICE did. The Boys AT rifle is a fun rifle for now. Hopefully we will see a second rifle slower rate of fire less bullets but more damage against vehicles.

    It wasn't the only other AT rifle. However, I doubt we'll get the 8mm AT rifles, as they just don't fit into the Boys type of damage model, IMO.

    However, there are numerous 20mm AT rifles, as well as the Soviet 14.5mm rifles when the Soviets are introduced. We might even get an experimental 50 cal with the American faction.

    I think we'll just have to be patient, just like with the rest of BFV.

    This game needs an PTRD-1941.

    I hope they have a German one cause I like having my factions use their own weapons.

    Yeah because this is clearly something that you will be able to carry around without looking suspicious.

    Did the Lahti see a lot of war time?

    I was about to mention something about it myself, you're thinking of the Winchester-Williams .50 BMG Antitank Rifle. It's one of the only semi auto AT rifles of WWII, so I'm really hoping this one gets added with the Americans.

    I doubt we'll see a semi-auto AT rifle in BFV, it would be impossible to balance the expected RoF of a semi-auto with the expected lethality of an anti-tank bullet.

    I'm sure another was datamined but I can't find it now, so might have imagined it.

    Are the tankers supposed to have any chance at all?

    Let's sum up: Snipers with AT, medics with AT, supports with AT and kamikaze assaults. Big cannons, planes, V1 and..vehicles with dynamite.
    Teammates which don't care tanks. Maybe 1 of 10.
    The biggest change is in infantry behaviour. (compare to BF1). When they see a tank, they don't afraid at all, they see an easy kill.
