It's true, sunderers can now sport either the Walker or Ranger turret! That's gonna be pretty darn sweet, simply parking a nigh-indestructible sunderer with 2x AA behind a tank column, resupplying vehicle ammo and dissuading any butt-runs from those pesky ESFs.

In other related news, I will never fly a reaver again. Ever.

Well, at least ESF composite armor got re-buffed by quite a large margine:
Increased bonus against flak by 5% each rank.
Increased bonus against small arms fire by 2% each rank.

Also:

Lock-on weapons (A2A Missiles & Lock-on heavy assault weapons):
Lock-on Angle reduced. Targets must be closer to the center of the crosshair in order to lock-on.

NS Annihilator:
Base lock-on acquire time increased from 2 seconds to 3 seconds.

So it is not all bad news for the ESF pilots!

Aye, I just noticed that as well! Means I'll be swapping my vehicle stealth for flak armor once more? Doubt it... But yeehaw Assnihilator nurf is just what the doctor ordered!

I don't think the change will make it to terrible for ESFs. Up til now sundy squads who wanted to keep sundy alive in the open would spawn 1-2 bursters. Thats hell for ESFs right there even pre hotfix. From change it will be more common (i think) to keep two engineers on guard duty, who can now fulfill multiple roles instead of having to be tied up in a MAX. Kinda makes sense. It will still be hell for ESFs, but with composite armor....maybe not so hellish :)

As for loadout, I think a full comparmor loadout will be very viable now when flying support for platoonsize groups, as there wont be much stealth-sneaking in those situations anyway....Im gonna try a comparmo setup after fix. Like it. Just would have liked lock fix...but at least its coming
