Summarize your bug The scout flare gun will destroy a tank resupply station with a direct hit to the fuel tank. I believe this to not be intended (I believe all platforms will be affected by this).
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Shoot the fuel tank of a tank resupply station with a scout flare and it'll explode.
What happens when the bug occurs? The tank resupply station explodes.
What should be happening instead? It shouldn't explode.

Here is a post someone else made on the EA Forums (this is how I found out about the matter): https://forums.battlefield.com/en-us/discussion/191506/bfv-flare-gun-can-1-shot-tank-rapair-station#...

Tanks already blew the stations up but it's great to know a simple flare can do the trick *rubs hands together with an evil grin*
