Battlefield 3 server patch released, fixes AA missiles

DICE has released a new Battlefield 3 server patch that brings a few fixes to the game, including a fix for AA missiles and an additional fix for the “MAV elevator” glitch”. There is also mention of a tweak to tank armor strength, but there isn’t any mention of how much or what exactly the new tweak does. We expect it to have improved tank armor at least a bit, as tanks are practically useless in Battlefield 3 today. The full patch notes:
Fixed AA missiles not doing damage to vehicles moving at very high speeds
Fixed TV Missile doing much more damage than it should (it is no longer a 1-hit kill)
Tweaked tank armor strength
MAV elevatoring fix, round 2; proning on the MAV will now disable it
RCON admin.say command can send to individual players
A few invalid map+gamemode combinations in maplist.txt could crash the server on startup; these combinations are now rejected instead
RCON vars.serverDescription was not returning anything in R20 if the string was not set; this has been changed to return “” instead
RCON player.onChat now reports the target player subset
The patch can be downloaded here by server owners and applied as usual.
