Default Regarding technicals

I did some searching and wasn't able to find a topic pertaining to these issues, but if there is one I apologize.

Issue 1: Technical Armor

The technicals have far too much armor rating on them. I've wasted dozens of rounds with an apache's main cannon trying to kill these things. These vehicles normally wouldn't even take 10 rounds from the main gun on an attack chopper. At the very least the crew of these vehicles should be getting killed with the copious amounts of fire that gets laid into these. Which brings me to the other issue.

Issue 2: Technical Hitboxes (specifically gunner)

The hitboxes for technical gunners are jacked up beyond reason. I've unloaded clips at point blank range, stabbed them, shot them with HEI rounds, and put grenades next to them just to have the gunner sit there shrugging it off while still firing away.

This is a seriously annoying issue because once again, anything short of a serious explosion (C4 or AT kits) fails to yield any results, and one technical gunner produces as much of a problem as an APC would.

I've found it odd too but I assumed this kind of thing was intentional, it would be pretty lame as Opfor to die after one APC round or got shot out of the gunners position after one rifle round.
It isn't even that hard to kill a techie anyway.
btw; Shoot the gunners head, and unload on techies with Amour Piercing rounds, not HE.

I also have noticed on techies that if you run into something then you have to click "s" like 5 times before it will back up, as if it was stuck on the wall.

TECHS are super over powered.

I made a thread about it a while back called " LB VS TECH" and i discussed the life/hitpoints and the damage done by the mini guns of the LB and the damage done by the tech.

It turns out the Tech has 6X times as much as the LB and it can withstand alot more damage than a humvee can as well.

Now if a tech is stronger than a humvee, why do we have humvees.???

If I recall correctly, the miniguns on the LB (M134 iirc) fires 7.62 rounds (.30 cal for comparison) technicals fire .50 cal, obviously. it makes more sense that the .50 cal does more damage. This is why LB's get hydras, which can kill a technical in 2-3 missiles.


Also, I think AP rounds should do less damage to trucks, cars, etc then HE rounds, since AP rounds would most likely go right through the vehicle, and HE would, obviously, have a bigger explosion.

Also take into account that the insurgent is completely exposed while on the gun.

I.e you dont have to destroy the whole vehicle to gain a functionality kill on it.

These are not bugs, therefore thread moved to vehicle feedback.

The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end... "

Ive noticed this too. Ive laid into a stationary techi gunner with a stabilized deployed SAW and it didn't phase him. I think the gun may be acting like a shield and catching all the bullets even though its not even half the size of the gunners silhouette. The same effect seems to happen with deployed MG nests.

edit: Of course thats when they're facing right at you.

I've unloaded the clip of an M4 straight into the back of a tech gunner at point blank range without it hurting him, then he proceeded to turn around and kill me with his first shot. I have also shot them in their sides while they are aiming at someone else, only for them to turn and shred my body. I do not like these invisible shields, not to mention the amount of AP and HE rounds one tech can take before it gets damaged. I mean, it's just a regular old pickup truck for crying out loud! I understand that these are meant to give insurgents more of a chance of surviving, but to this extent is just ridiculous!

I have never had a problem taking out a technical. They are at a big disadvantage against a humvee or LB (unless they surprise them)
