Default Best military combat vehicle to be assigned in?

I guess watching Fury got me thinking about all the different modern land combat vehicles people spend the better part of a year in. Are some better than others? AA? Light Armor? MBT? Who was comfortable in their station?

And they don't get hit by enemy fire nearly as much.

And they're just so much more cool.

Pretty much. They go up when everyone else has been put down.
