Has anyone found any decent information on exact percentages (bonus) that certain certs give?
For instance, I'd like to know how much bonus the Nano Armor Kit certs (bonus repair speed for Engis) give, but cant find the numbers anywhere.

I'm saving for an M60 Bulldog as primary turret on my Bus (250 certs), but as my framerate is often so low, Engi is one of the only ways to go to get decent XP (try killing a moving, shooting target with <10 fps  :() and I need stuff to boost my xp-gaining.
But it needs to be worth it. A ~2% bonus on repair speed aint worth it. A ~10% bonus is.

Reading up a bit (work is booooring) and: Thermal View scopes allow you to see cloakies! Ooooooh!  ;D

(Was planning to take thermal view on my M60 (see above) anyway, as it is a very good vs. infantry gun (and does good direct hit damage to tanks too))

And has anyone tried the A30 Walker yet? It's the AA machinegun that can shoot farther up (vs. the standard M20 Basilisk that has a huuuuge blindspot around the Z-axis). How effective is it vs. planes (which it is intended for) and is it still usable vs. ground based baddies (i.e. can it also shoot level or even better: down?)

Am planning to put this on my Magrider if it's any good.

I think lololol01 possibly but something similar on his Lightning, but not sure if anyone has thrown them on a bus.

AA guns are grand against infantry
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money." Josiah Stamp (Governor Bank of England 1928-41)

That's the vehicle turrets, right? Not the station turrets? That would be a cool thing to put on a Mag then! :)
Now to have more Tank runs, as we hardly do them anymore...

2 cert levels to go from 10 repair cycles to 11. Why am I not impressed?  :-\
That's somewhere between 2.5 and 5% bonus I guess?

Jon, could you share on RvB, someone there wished they could preview the scopes before buying it. Cheers.

Ah, I now see that there also is an AA gun for the Lightning (the Skyguard).

But I don't mean that one...

I mean the secondary gun on the Magrider, the A30 Walker.

Anyone got experience with that, or heard about how it performs?
