"With all the tweaks, new features and the convenient Test Range, we want to encourage players to try out the land, air, and sea vehicles in Battlefield 4, and of course the customizations that come with them."
Could it be? DICE listened to the community & made a place for n00bs to crash and burn while learning to use vehicles, instead of doing it in the middle of a game!

I was wondering the same thing. A simple shooting range would be awesome, or even a mode against bots would be better, but I don't expect much from DICE. I'll just be happy if every game I join doesn't constantly have as many people taking off and immediately crashing the helicopters & jets.

agreed, bots are almost necessary. if they can learn to fly well enough not to crash, what's going to happen when they are engaged by an enemy? Will they hop out of the pilot's seat as soon as they get locked on to? of course they will.
as far as weapons testing, either find an empty server, or if you need a crash course in the game's mechanics, just try the campaign on hard with no aim assist.
