I had wondered how the Bren gunner is and why he has an assistant and isn't more like the BAR soldier. But after some research, the Bren having 30 round mags would be heavier to lug around than the 20 round mags of the BAR, so that is a consideration for sure. Not only that, but the Bren had a quick change barrel, unlike the fixed barrel of the BAR, so the assistant could not only carry the extra mags of ammo, but also an extra barrel or two.

So while at first glance these weapons seem very similar, upon further inspection, there are enough differences it seems that warrants an assistant.

Certainly would be a nice addition to the Commonwealth troops.
