this is definitely the kind of thinking i want to discourage amongst brikwarriors. labeling things as "vehicles" as opposed to creations places stuff into categories and groupings, without any fluid way of transferring between different mediums. sure, an armored car or a tank would be considered a vehicle no problem. but what about a dinosaur? that's not a vehicle perse, but it's certainly large enough to hit easily. and where does that leave giant robots?
the point is, i think it's incredibly un-brikwarsy to label certain vehicles as "this is a tank-class vehicle, so it has THESE modifiers...", because it gets more into semantics than it does into play-time. this is what i really liked about the 2005 rules: all ranged weapons are basically treated the same way. you've got a very few number of variations to these, but enough to differentiate different types of guns in aspects where it'd be extremely obvious (Artillery gun vs. rifle), as opposed to a smaller, hardly noticeable on brik terms change (AK-47 vs. AK-74).
