    The main rival is the same Russian chopper as in the previous game, even though neither of the two factions is Russian… I’ve noticed a lot of the weapons and vehicles shown on this site for BF4 are the same as BF3. Which makes no sense. Your site is out of date or not playing with a full deck of cards.

      That may be true, but there is almost nothing of information of vehicles and weapons in the game given by EA, so I think he has done a good job building this site.

    I’d love to see them give the helicopter pilots night vision abilities.
