Ever notice that ALL the units in flashpoint , are still in service today(exclude resistance). Have a look and you will see.
Flashpoint was not designed around 1985 , I think that it is just a small part of something larger , a funding tool for BIS's VBS perhaps? or just a part of it.
Thats why we got the AUG and G36, they have already implemented the AUG into VBS , so it stands to reason that they will probably slowly just introduce newer hardware into the game , not becasue its to please the CS guys , but its already implemented into the system.
Just my thoughts.
