I know that fans of the original GR series were outraged by the implementation of active camo in a game supposed to be set in the near-future with believable technology. I hear the criticism that the developers have thrown out actual reasearch and science to the wind in favor of sci-fi. However, one thing that stood out to me was the notion that a BTR (big Russian APC) can be destroyed by shooting it enough times with a heavy machine gun:
Another great part is at 4:12, when the main character just gets unloaded on with a ton of bullets, but hey, his screen just turns red, he crawls to his teammate who heals him, and he is in tip-top shape. They talk so much about real equipment that could be used by the military in the near future, so which gadget allows you to take ten bullets and get completely healed by a teammate in about two seconds?

Also, about the BTR, apparently in the future a good tactic to take out a BTR is to rush up to and shoot it with an assault rifle, as seen by the computer (who miraculously comes out unscathed). --- XBL Gamertag - AquaF1END
Yeah, this is clearly geared towards the crowd that wants something different from Call of Duty and Battlefield. Even in Call of Duty though you couldn't destroy a BTR by shooting it - COD 4 you needed rockets or C4, MW2 you needed a Predator missile
