Players get a bonus money payout for damaging vehicles depending on the damage they’ve done.
Applies for only infantry vs vehicle hits. Shooting from static weapons and firing from vehicle positions are included.
The bonus applies if the target vehicle is not empty or wasn’t empty 1 minute before the hit. MHQs always yield bonus.
The feature is considering hitPoints (turret, rotor, fuel tank, wheels, etc).
Damaging a friendly vehicle will result in a hit penalty.
The minimum bonus in case of using missiles/rockets (including static launchers) is the price of the ammo. – this only applies for the more expensive vehicles – APCs, Tanks, Helicopters, Jets, etc.
The missile/rocket price is also paid if the vehicle is empty for more than 1 minute and the previous crew of the vehicle was hostile – also only applies for the more expensive vehicles
If the player hits a vehicle with a missile/rocket right after destruction, the price of the ammo will be refunded – this is to avoid the frustration of the bonus not being paid when multiple team members engage a hostile vehicle

Added a new event which triggers if a player fires a lock-on missile against a vehicle inside protected zone. It adds up to the same value as the killing someone in the protected area. (Example: firing lock-on missile (0.5) + killing a vehicle (0.5) = 1 will cause the defense mechanism to trigger)
Player leaving the base area will now set to vulnerable within a random time interval of 5 to 15 seconds instead of instantly – Making it less predictable for base campers. Firing will instantly make the player and its vehicle to lose invulnerability.
