Rifle infantry are the backbone of your armies throughout the game. A rifleman has very good range and LOS, and performs well against antitank infantry and can out-range sub-machine gunners - yet doesn't have the same rate of fire as SMG assault infantry. While they perform poorly against enemy vehicles and machine guns, they are still cheap and small enough to be effective as an anti-infantry unit, making them ideal as support units, especially if used alongside tanks.
