Obsolete yet reliable Soviet MG.

The RPD is a high-capacity, belt-fed light machine gun commonly used by the VC and can be equipped by Rangers via a killcard. It is tied for the highest fire rate of any weapon in game, and paired with decent damage and average recoil, the RPD is deadly at close to medium ranges. At longer ranges, it is very effective at keeping targets suppressed. Compared to the M60, it trades range, magazine capacity and stopping power for lower bulk, less recoil and better suppression capabilities. When compared to the Stoner LMG, it has the same range and a greater rate of fire, but less damage, smaller mag size and much higher bulk. It is an excellent substitute for the M60 on patrols where lower bulk is needed along with acceptable fire power, although the Stoner LMG may prove to be a better choice if lower bulk is desired.
