Description

Using 1.68 RC, action menu item for switching to main weapon (e.g. rifle) is suddenly not available when a launcher is equipped. 
 
For vanilla AT and AA infantry units, action menu items for 1) switch to pistol (if pistol is available) and 2) launcher are available when main rifle is held.  After switching to launcher, only action for switch to pistol is present.  If unit has no pistol, no actions are shown.  The only way to switch from launcher to main weapon (e.g. rifle) is to use a keybind, such as "Switch gun/launcher" (default [RCTRL+ ;]).   For all units other than AA and AT units, all the switch weapon actions work as before.  It makes no sense to me that weapon switching actions are available at all times EXCEPT when a launcher is held in-hand.

The issue also affects RHS mod AA and AT units.

Steps To Reproduce

Place AT or AA unit in editor. Use action menu to switch to launcher. Action item to switch back to primary weapon (rifle) is missing. Keybind must be used to switch back (e.g. RCTRL + ;).

Additional Information

All my weapon keybinds are unassigned EXCEPT for the "Switch gun/launcher" (default [RCTRL+ ;]) and "Switch gun/handgun" (;).

Likely the same issue reported here in dev branch:

Should be fixed in one of the next RC branch updates, and later in Stable/Main one.
