Anyone notice this?  I just took out my own fresh tank with only three RPGs to near rear-end, but on the side.

 

Then tried again from the front, it only taking 4 RPGs to destroy.  I haven't fought a tank in a long time since I've been away from GTAO for a while, so unsure.

I think so, I took out a tank with a jet much faster than I expected, but I'm not sure if it was already damaged.

Maybe they normalised the Pegasus tank armour to be the same as the Military Base's tanks, because they were/are much weaker.

Errr.. no

 

Those two things are minuscule and i'm sure would take no time at all to fix, don't go praising them over such a tiny thing which people have been wanting to be fixed since launch.

I don't care how long it took them to do it.  The fact is, they finally did, and this is a HUGE game-changer.

Previous to the patch I've noticed it's easier to destroy a vacant tank

They were always easy to destroy with no one in them, maybe test em out with someone inside?

 

Either way, kind of sucks that a tank has to be bitched out for the little upset ones but i don't use mine enough to care.

Hurray! It's much less likely that tanks will be rolling around and killing everyone in free roam sessions, if all it takes is three RPGs or sticky bombs to destroy them.

you also have to pay for a persons vehicle if they're in it now and you get bad sports points for it unlike before

You're pretty ignorant or never tried to kill or escape one on foot if you think that. Low levels have zero chance to kill one and a high level is gonna die about 7-10 times before he kills it if he's really good, most people would die many more, lol! At least the passive mode changes have low levels a chance to escape if they're smart enough.

Tank armour has 100% been nerfed, and i'm pretty sure cannon splash radius has too. 

 

Went 1v1 against a random tank in the middle of the street earlier, 3 RPG's and he was done. Didn't die once, just charged on through the smoke from his poorly aimed shots. Thing is, before you could just shoot anywhere near a player and they'd die. Not now. 

 

Awesome decision by Rockstar, it's been too long coming but it had to eventually. They were so OP.
