Tanks are cool but they destroy ground troops too easily. To kill a tank as a ground troop takes 2 rockets and a grenade(I use weapon mods) and the tank still has plenty of time to run me over or shoot me in the face. also a troop will always loose at long range fights.

Well... It is a Tank.

I think tank vs troop is balance pretty well. A troop can easily take out a tank with:
1. Sidewinders with proxies
2. Stealth by sneaking up behind it
3. Having a teammate with you
4. Pancake
5. Sniping the driver
6. Using the environment as cover

I mancaked a Hawk while it was in flight!

 

I was in the Rifters base to the right forward position on Basin near the Rift barrels. I had just called down a Jetbike Corral, when all of the sudden a Hawk flew right into it trying too flak me! Holy Tanks was it epic! :smileylol:

 

It was one of those moments when I wished I had caught it on film. :smileyindifferent:

 

Oh, I also podded A-Jumpingjack while he was in a Hawk in the same match. :smileyhappy:

Have you played BF2? Tanks can take 4 rockets and still live.

@highly

The tank takes skill to operate. The driver may miss his shot if not experienced.

I've never found tanks hard to drive or aim or kill with the hardest thing is either saving for one or avoiding drop pods

The first time I drove a tank I missed every shot! Mainly because of the controls...
