If I were looking to outfit a squad, I would choose a different setup. I would probably go with:
Kimber Desert Warrior
Mk. 19 Grenade Launcher
The Kimber Desert Warrior is a modernized 1911 chambered for the .45acp round. It also has an accessory rail for a laser or flashlight.
The HK416 is a bit more reliable and maintenance free than the M4. Reliability is key.
The HK21 fires the 7.62x51 round. It has better range and accuracy than the M249 Saw and weighs less than the M60.
The M21 is an accurazed M14 which also fires the 7.62x51 round. It can't take out targets from a mile away but will make an excellent designated
The Mk.19 Grenade Launcher with require a team of at least 2. Firing 60-round link belts of 40mm grenades. You should be able to do some damage
against whatever armor or helicopter support comes your way.
