As for the tanks it really depends on where you hit it. I always wait if I can to hit them in the rear. Two there and its done.
Pfft, just go Support, whip out some C4, slap it on the tank, run away and blow it sky high!

I already have the guided shells for the main battle tank lol. I cant wait to mess around with the canister shell.

And mortars arent terribly effective against heavy armor from my experiences, but it will still damage it. It should fare quite nicely against light armor though.

Is there any information about whether or not they have fixed the Eyefinity-resolution-to-single-monitor-resolution bug?

Scout and attack helicopters are so OP is used correctly, I agree though, the attack helicopter needs to be able to take more damage..

You're playing it wrong.

Who would of thought they could make choppers worse than BC2? If you turn more than 30 degrees the chopper stops responding. The Havoc instantly flips upside down if you get shot with a .50 cal and stops responding if you're shot by a jet's guns.

You certainly can't do a barrel roll either. I don't get why they make it so gimped when BF2 wasn't even near the limits of a real life Apache either:

BF3 Infantry is pretty good but the vehicles are so buggy currently, especially choppers. It's clear BF3 is going after the CoD kids and not the BF2 vets.

Just checked. No update.

I think the pistols are fine, I went mad in the metro tunnel when I ran out of ammo trying to fight my way up the stairs. Killed 4 guys with a pistol. The DAO12 is a beast. Got a 9 kill streak with his just running through a part of Tehran highway in the buildings.

The mortars are easy to take out, and the have a range they can't fire out at and a proximity that they can't fire within. They're clearly marked on your map, especially if you have mortars. Just mortar the mortars. Easy peasy.

The jets definitely need a boost. Honestly, the only worthwhile air vehicles are choppers since they can easily take out infantry. Jets? I have yet to kill a single guy on the ground with a jet. They're also too fast, especially for that map that's in the freighter yards. Go straight for 5 seconds turn around, repeat.

I actually got a sniper pair with a jet on that map. I was laughing so hard I nearly crashed into one of the cranes. However, the real problem on that map is the jet ceiling is 300m rather than 900m like it is for the other 3 jet-maps. It's completely pointless, because at that height it's trivial for Helicopters to do a number to you. I mean you can't even do a vertical 180 on that map without stalling out.
