Stryker VS. Russian BTR

So I just finished a game of Squad with a buddy of mine. We both got into a Stryker to search for a BTR that was holding down our teams position. We roll up to said BTR and my friend starts to rip into the BTR's side for about a good 3-4 seconds before the BTR turns to us shoots us about 8-10 times and kills us. The BTR caught fire and was close to death. From what I've been reading the Stryker has great armor and has even some pretty good damage towards armoured targets. Just wondering how it was possible that the BTR could have just turned the table on us. If anyone has more info on that I would love to hear. I think it was complete BS as we had a pretty big jump on it, just to have it complete annihilate us. I thought the Stryker was supposed to go up against the Russian BTR. Not be useless against a head on battle.

All vehicles have 500 HP. One bullet from a Stryker does 6 HP damage to a BTR. So you need to hit BTR with 500/6=83 bullets to destroy it.

You obviously ran into a 30mm BTR. One 30mm bullet does 25 HP damage to a Stryker. So that BTR only had to hit you 20 times to destroy you. You said that it only hit you 8-10 times, meaning you probably wasn't full HP or you counted it wrongly.

Well, it wasn't close to death. At the moment when your friend set it on fire, it had ~50% HP left if it had full HP before your friend started shooting at it.

It has.

It has one of the weakest guns against armored vehicles but it is still very balanced and fair.

Big jump would be if you got to it from behind, full-sprayed it until your gun overheats, then waited ~10 seconds and finished that BTR with a second spray. That's how it is supposed to be...

That 30mm BTR has the best gun against armored vehicles. You can't just go up against anti-vehicle unit using an anti-infantry unit and think you can actually win in head to head battle.

You have to engage the btr82a from a distance and be ready to retreat behind cover if it starts engaging you with the cannon. The trick with all vehicles is to be in a position where you can quickly retreat behind cover if you find yourself at a disadvantage.

I once blew up a stryker from across the map it was great fun. But I think vehicles are pretty much balanced. You just have to play another style with the stryker.
