No contract.

Well... Tbh, strafing itself is already a huge advantage and active ability that the others lack. I was thinking of limited agility thrusters though.

But given that TD's have less armor than MBT's and they have no secondary weapon on a swivel (or indeed bring it's main gun to bear fast enough) that can deal with the overwhelming amount of Anti-Vehicle infantry weapons, that already make driving an MBT or Lightning an extremely brief occupation for most of us, render these vehicles useless.
Personally I would like to see the following things to be implemented along with it:

- Crew requirement increase for MBTs
- Relative armour increase for tanks through an AV strength reduction on vehicles and weaponry
- Limited engineering juice (require clips for repairs as well)
- Reduction in repair speed
- Handheld AV carriers more rounds
- Weaker mines, but more mines.

See, I'd rather see a little bit more stamina in the field, off-set by an increase in the value of dealing damage (more value to dealing damage through damage lasting longer and being impossible to repair endlessly). I think it's currently the wrong way around.

Similarly, I feel heavy air has too much hitpoints right now and too fast a TTK.
