Ah yes, whenever my life is in great danger I simply freeze and await my eternal demise. Such realism.

Yep, you either hit the deck as an infantry man, or your getting tossed around so hard in your tank that your doing flips in your seat.

I always felt that vehicles should rout, for better or for worse it seems better than just stun locking them. Like Xeno points out, though, using AAA range as a justification for not making the attack helo autocannons useful is silly due to other game mechanics. Plus, if you could (effectively) use the autocannon on light vehicles at the same ranges APCs do you'd have a nice way of microing your attack helos so that you save your godrockets for disabling AA systems and your ATGMs for heavy vehicles.

Top tier helicopters (100+) should all get a boost.

if the given range is 1925 they would only outrange some of the cheapest radar AA such as the basic osa which i honestly believe does not matter much.
While all of the infrared anti air would still have longer range then the helicopter autocannon.
If the given range is 2100m again it would only outrange cheap radar AA and would be the same range as the cheapest availiable infrared AA (strela2m blowpipe)

1750 meters would be sufficient I think.

I'm for a range boost to 1925. Currently, attack helicopters simply don't use their guns until every other weapon has depleted its ammunitions.

I would prefer 1925 meters but even a buff to 1750 would be nice
