I'm still going with my head canon that DICE realized early on there was no salvaging the game BF V was turning into so they went out of their way to wreck BF1 with its last updates. Ilya buff, mortar truck buff, SMG 08/18 and Automatico buff all in one update, Burton in the one after...

Ilya Muromets. That plane takes the fun out of any game it's being used in. Ruins perfectly fun games of operations, or conquest. If BFV did one thing right, it's how they balanced planes versus infantry.
If I ever see anyone using a 100 star Muromets, I automatically assume, they have zero skill whatsoever. If they could play as infantry, they would play as infantry. Simple as that.
Sorry buddy, but that means you want YOUR rules vs game rules. You want play infantry and do not take effort to counterattack planes. that's like saying : I like sun and I dont like rain, so I am just gonna hate the rain, instead of taking out the umbrella and go outside.
The fact is, the Illya Muromets can be countered extremely easily. Contrary to regular attack plane which are fairly sturdy and quick, heavy bomber is glass canon, goes down in 2-3 seconds with proper counterattack measures. One AA truck that moves between 2-3 flags stops Ilya 100 %, period. One decently operated AA-gun blocks 40-50 % map for bomber, 2 x AA operators will effectively block it for good. Doh, even 2-3 burton plays will ruin fun for Ilya operator. More, even regular support fire now, with its insane range will chase off the bomber, if used by more than 1 player. However, please accept the fact that most of your team does not use any AA, never heard of AA truck, fighter plane or even simple Burton weapon. They just storm flags like lemmings, 20 guys together, then cry they had been wiped out by one bomber. I hear regular cryuing every second game, with some guys asking "where is AA on t his map? " If your team has 20 snipers, never uses AA or planes to bring balance vs bomber, please blame yourself. And the same story is with tanks, horses, elite class, gas granades etc - there is always crying, instead of accepting the fact that all these things can be balanced, avoided, etc.
