Vodnik BPPU has no armor despite is wiki saying its protected from small arms.
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The 30mm Vodnik BPPU has no small arms protection despite it having a 30mm cannon and being mostly made of metal.

Its wiki page says it should have small arms protection, which would make sense given its got a 30mm cannon and would be used against infantry.

Infantry AI will shoot at it with small arms and kill the crew with ease.

This is especially the case with anyone sitting in the front two seats, the driver is usually killed while the gunner situated further back in the vehicle survives. The glass seems to not be bullet resistant like the glass seen in the Ifrit or Hunter.

From testing it seems like the glass itself has been fixed in the dev version, however the actual armor located directly under the windshield and door glass can be penetrated by even small 9mm pistols. The ticket should be modified to reflect this fact, in addition to adding the appropriate tags as the author neglected to do so.

Here is an image of the area I'm talking about under the windshield, pretty much the same area on the door glass.
