Weapon and vehicle stats

OP N7 Dutch STR

So i made a post about something similar b4 which only included vehicle armor. But after that i decided to do the same for weapon damages and decided to include the vehicle stats(damage AND armor) as well, before you continuing you'll need to know a few things:

1. All tests have been done against players so i would get the BASE damage values, as all vehicles have damage resistance agains ALL weapons. The heavier the vehicle the higher the recistance(duh)

2. ALL shields(both vehicle and player shielding) will always get the base damage, vehicle dmg recistance only applies to vehicle armor and not the shields

3.all wpn damage values are average damage per shot
So if a weapon fires in 3-round bursts it will say "damage×3"

4. Headshot capable weapons only have their headshot damage listed if they are NOT 1-shot kill weapons(like most precision weapons)

5. Players: 45 health and 70 shields.
In custom games the max amout that you can increase health and shields is 500% so a player can't have more health then 225, nor can it have more shields then 350(unless its using overshield)

6. The damage values may and probably will be different for enemy ai in warzone, same goed for the vehicle damage and armor(if I'm not mistaken enemy vehicle armor get multiplied by 200% for a normal(white) boss, 300% for legendary(orange) bosses and 400% for mythic(red) bosses but then this is NOT confirmed, just something i read somewhere

So that said lets get to the numbers, I've sorted them out by faction.

Yeah ik, its like an addiction lol, the only thing i have to figure out is the vehicle dmg resistances, i already noticed that the DR doesn't depend on the vehicle armor, but more like the vehicle itself and the projectile type of the weapon(explosive, ballistic, plasma etc.) But the numbers of which does what is still a maze to me.
