Add Another AP 7.62x39 Round (With Suggestions)

In late game, there really isn't a place for using 7.62x39 weapons. They have too much recoil for the majority and with the low fire rate the weapons have BP sometimes doesn't cut it. Many people say that there isn't many AP 7.62x39 rounds but I still feel that to balance the ammo class there should be more. I mean, 5.45 has several ammo types filling in the gaps between while PS and BP are miles apart. I hope you could at least add another AP 7.62x39 round that is better than BP in pen but with lower damage for balance. Here are some examples that I found on the internet.

Here is an example taken from the r/ak47 subreddit featuring two different AP ammos with one being the equivalent of M995.

The one on the left is Lapua Tungsten Core and the one on the right is East German (DDR) Steel Core.

Here is the OP's u/casualphilosopher1 words from the other post:

"A while back I posted a pic of the old Soviet steel core BZ AP bullet. There have been more modern AP loadings in 7.62x39 but it's practically impossible to get any detailed information or even photos about them.

Rarest of all is Lapua's 7.62x39 tungsten core ammo: they don't even advertise it in their military ammo catalog; it's only produced in limited quantities for the Finnish military. It's taken me weeks of searching to finally come across this pic.

From the Cartridge Collectors site, Nammo's 7.62x39mm AP can penetrate 12mm RHA at 100m. This is equal to the NATO M995 5.56x45 AP round."

 

All in all, I hope for the AKM series to be buffed in some way either it be recoil, price, ammo, etc.

 

(From Reddit) EDIT: As a response to people saying there aren't many 7.62x39 bullets let me post some examples here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jqfRlSoK60 AP Incediary bullets + 3 other types. Maybe we can have one of these bullets to fill the gap between PS and BP?https://modernarmsinternational.com/shop/110gr-ap/ This one is special because it is seemingly equivalent to m995 in terms of penetration. (Checked again. It is made of Tungsten)

Thanks to user u/Penox for pointing this one out!

I dont see -with the current state of the game- how any ammo below meta ammo is useful in the game.

They could add 10 other ammos, but nobody is ever gonna use them, unless forced to.

And nobody in this game is forced to use bad ammo as good ammo is easy to get and everybody has money in the millions.

So.. may I ask WHY?

762x39 bp is a very very good round late round. Aks also have somewhere around 65 recoil with top of the line  attachments... one example below...
