One must understand the theory of maneuver combat to understand the value of suppressive fire. The basic idea is that half of your force shoots, while the other half moves. The half that is shooting needs to put out the most massive amount of firepower that they can, since being shot at is a definite degrader of marksmanship for the bad guys. This may cause them to miss me and my boys while moving forward towards them. Once we get within hand grenade range, with enough of us left, we will win.

Ergo, if my buddy can put a 200 round belt in the face of my enemy, I am much more likely to succeed in my maneuver than if all he had to shoot was a few 30 rd mags. Believe me, a SAW can put 200 rds in your face out to 400 meters with no problem.
