Weapons I'd like to see in Modern Warfare 3

Since everyone seems to be doing these, I thought it might be a good way to start off my blog.

So here are the weapons I'd like to see in the MW3, both from previous CoD games and some new weapons that could be included. Many of these weapons are the improved versions and replacements of older military weapons used in the other MW games.
