What about choppers with limited ammo? I mean that makes sense and requires more skill because its hard to hit things with the choppers.
It's funny, in BF games I don't care for flying the heli's or jets all that much. I like being down on the ground with the troops either in FPS mode or in armored vehicles tearing stuff up. The air-play seems too detached for me.

In BF3, since the vehicles had unlimited ammo, this allowed a skillful player to outplay and defeat multiple opponents at a time. A skillful player with great aim and armor tactics could go deep into enemy territory, wreck havoc and it was extremely fun. It had nothing to do with "spamming shells". As a very skilled armor player, I would take out 2-3+ opposing armored vehicles that would "spam shells".
With an artificial ammo cap/refresh, it ties one hand of a skillful player behind his back. It's essentially a "soft cap" on how effective you can be, how deep you can penetrate, how many opponents you can face at once. Once you use those 3-4 rounds to kill an opponent, you are literally helpless for a great deal of time and would have to hide or retreat until replenished. This changes the dynamic of armored battles drastically for the worse and slows everything down. Huge mistake.
