The Light Riflemen '90 is the later era version of the Light Riflemen.
The Light Riflemen '90 is a light infantry squad available to the United States. It is the '90 variant of Light Riflemen, and comes at a decreased availability and an increased cost of 25 deployment points. The small arms loadout of Light Riflemen '90 is identical to that of Light Riflement '75, an M16 and M240 GPMG. However, Light Riflement '90 come armed with the M47 Super Dragon. The effectiveness of either weapon is dubious, as the base Dragon has 10AP and the Super Dragon has 15. However, the Super Dragon's base accuracy is 50% versus 35%, and combined with the much increased range of the Super Dragon (1925m versus 1575m) means that Light Riflemen '90 will have a far easier time hitting their target.
Regardless, Light Riflemen '90 can be effective at holding an area against an infantry push due to their Super Dragon and the M240, but aren't particularly effective at attacking more heavily armored vehicles like main battle tanks. Their far increased cost and decreased availability limits their cost efficiency, however; Light Riflemen '90 cost as much as VDV '90 who are both shock infantry and come with a much more efficient anti-tank weapon, while also having a prohibitively small unit pool.
