Replace the model for the SDAR and make it something based on a real underwater rifle. Use the Kel Tec RFB model currently used for the SDAR as a new DMR for the Green Army faction.

I am not a fan of using the RFB as the underwater rifle - it's not an underwater rifle. It's not even a 5.56mm rifle - currently it only comes in 7.62 NATO.
However I somehow doubt it will be changed after all the effort that was put into it.
Effort? All I'm saying take the SDAR model, add some rails, make it a DMR, then you could use maybe an APS Underwater rifle model, just modify it to use the games 5.56 dual purpose and STANAG mags.
It's not throwing away "all the effort that was put into it."
It's just using it's model to make a Green Army unique DMR which isn't present currently, and it allows the SDAR to have a more authentically appropriate model. Even if they changed the model they could still use the same code and ballistics. Swapping models isn't terribly involved, just ask any competent modder.
i have another suggestion:
Make the Kel Tec RFB a "normal" land weapon, which can accept all attachment.
Then make some special attachments that transform the RFB into an underwater weapon: For example a special barrel-attachment that is needed to fire the supercavitating ammo or special underwater-sights, that would be like the back-up-sights but bigger and more open.
this way you would have the nice RFB as realistic land weapon, which could be tranformed for underwater combat, giving it more of a scifi-underwater-gun-look in the process.
what do you think?
