Lightbulb A NEW WAY TO PLAY: Military Challenge

So I made a new variant called MILITARY.

RULES:
-No elemental guns (Unless explosive and certain guns only) and grenades.
-Maliwan is banned.
-Sheilds may only be basic tediore sheilds. Fire or explosive resistant is allowed.
-Only element allowed is explosive and only grenadier assault rifles and rocket launchers. (No tourge rifles.)
-Hyperion is banned.
Only grenade mods are basic and sticky explosives.
-Tourge shotguns allowed. (Suggested by: razorxscooter)
-Tediore brand guns are banned. (Forgot to put it as an original rule.)

The goal of this challenge is to be like a present day fighter.

Feedback appreciated.

(Rules are subject to change if i get a reasonable suggestion it will be added.)

NOTE: I did search before posting didnt see anything.

Idea: I need feedback on this. I know of the dread napalm bombs so should fire grenades be included?

I thought military sometimes use Frag-12 rounds with their shotguns (or at least thinking about employing them.), so shouldn't Torgue shotguns be allowed?

Explosive is considered an element and explosive Maliwan RL is modded so I'd recommend excluding it from the challenge.

I've used the plain Jane 26/15/26 tree build on a Dahl Specific allegiance with Axton and from experience, it was very tough and had to break it after getting to level72, so I have doubts if it'll be enjoyable at all. Or, it will only if OSKs happen (aka, you're weapons are level80 and enemies are lvl68~72), but then, it gets bland and you feel your superiority is superficially delivered. Additional constraints in game play should be balanced of with certain liberties (specifically in UVHM).

And you might as well add Torgue pistols, Rocket Launchers, Gren Mods and Assault Rifles
Example
  • Seeker
  • Unkempt Harold
  • Nukem
  • Creamer
  • Kerblaster
  • Ogre
  • Ahab
  • Root
  • Bonus Package
  • Rolling Thunder
  • Tunguska
  • Spitter

Banning Hyperion or any manufacturer isn't a good idea cause weapons can get mixed parts from other manufacturers. And honestly, if you do this, I wouldn't be able to distinguish it from an allegiance run.

That plain Jane build is pretty close to the build I use with my Dahl-allegiance Commando. I play OP3 with it, and other than his almost total helplessness in FFYL, it's pretty fun.

OP - Present-day fighter: no shield, no grenade mod (maybe a Tediore explosive with a lobbed delivery), no elements (including slag), no Moxxi weapons, etc. Play with one of each type of gun (we'll assume the soldier can fit all these in his pack):
Pistol - Dahl repeater
Assault rifle: Vladof, non-minigun-barreled
Sniper rifle: Jakobs (almost any non-unique)
Launcher: Torgue (any non-unique type should be pretty close)
Shotgun: Bandit Stret Sweeper
SMG: Dahl non-elemental Emperor

Sounds like a Jakobs allegiance playthrough, but worse.
