A wonderful battle rifle: the ASh-12.7

So I was browsing the wonderful world of the internet…
And I found this:

And I immediately thought: what is this?
And so I looked it up:
AND BEHOLD!

The ASh-12.7 is a battle rifle designed by the Russian Central Design and Research Bureau of Sporting and Hunting Arms by request from the Federal Security Service for urban combat. The weapon is meant to have high stopping power and massive penetration due to the cartridge it is chambered in: the 12.7x55, a .50-caliber round based off of the .338 Lapua Magnum.

In-game, this weapon would be released alongside the never-added AR-15/50, chambered in the .50 Beowolf cartridge. These two battle rifles would be very similar to the VSS, both using 10-round magazines. The main difference would be that the ASh has would be able to one hit headshot at close range (30 studs) but have a very high damage dropoff at longer ranges and a bullet drop to match because of its design. The AR, on the other hand, would be slightly weaker but would have a faster firerate and better damage at range. However, both will have huge recoil.

Now start arguing in the comments!
