and comparing a flamer to a med is rediculous. The flamer is MUCH more powerfull in close quarters combat, or when close to buildings like the AGT. The med is medium in everything, armour, damage, speed, range etc. Which makes him very powerfull on the field. Most flamers will die before they reach their destination. But once it gets there, the flamer has the most powerfull damage/sec ratio there is. It's the only vehicle that can damage another vehicle faster then a hotwire can repair.
