    The Back to Karkand Expansion came out and I have updated the vehicle listing to include B2K vehicles & aircraft. Each one is prefaced with "(B2K)" for informational purposes.

    Update: Nov 9, 2011
    They have updated the scores needed to unlock and have added a few new things. I have gone through Battlelog and double checked numbers and definitions and updated this list.

    ----------------------------
    Original Post (10/08/11) During BETA.

    I have painstakingly gone through and typed out all the information on vehicle unlocks from the Battlelog system. The points for each unlock may change as DICE modifies the system. This took me a few hours so please enjoy.
    The definitions of the unlocks are on the second page.

    Unlocks in Alphabetical Order

    Updated: Nov 9, 2011

    Unlocks in Alphabetical Order

    Air Radar - The range of your minimap increases greatly and reveals all friendly and enemy aircraft.
    Anti-Air Missle (AA) - Anti-aircraft missile launchers are mounted on the turret which will lock on to and track enemy air vehicles.
    APFSDS-T Shell (APC) - Armor-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot (with tracer) ammo which deals more direct damage but has no explosive element.
    ATGM Launcher (APC) - Wire-guided anti-tank missile launchers are mounted on the turret.
    Autoloader - An enhanced mechanism decreases the minimum time between firing rounds in your main weapon.

    Below Radar (Aircraft) - When flying at low altitudes your heat signature is decreased, hiding you from enemy radar and preventing enemy air-to-air missile systems from locking on to you.
    Belt Speed - An enhanced mechanism decreases the minimum time between firing bursts with your main weapon.
    Beam Scanning (Jets) - A computer upgrade for advanced weapon systems that helps you lock on to enemy targets faster when using heat seeking or laser-guided missiles.

    Canister Shell (Tank) - A tank shell encasing thousands of tungsten balls fired though the cannon muzzle like a shotgun.
    CITV Station (Tank) - Access is available to a 3rd turret position in the tank from which you can laser-designate targets and use a proximity scanner. You can enter a tank in this seat even if other players are occupying both the driver and remote gunner positions.
    Coaxial LMG - A light machine-gun mounted coaxially to your main weapon.
    Coaxial HMG (Tank) - A heavy machine-gun mounted coaxially to your main weapon.

    ECM Jammer (Aircraft)
    - Electronic countermeasures including chaff launchers and deceptive transmitters prevent your aircraft from being locked on to by enemy weapon systems for a short time when activated.
    Extinguisher (Aircraft) - A controlled air pressure release in the engine compartment will extinguish engine fires when activated, helping a disabled aircraft return to normal operation and recover from damage.

    Guided Missile (Ground to Ground) - Laser-guided anti-tank missile launchers are mounted on the turret which lock on to and track enemy land vehicles and can acquire laser-designated targets even if they are out of line-of-sight.
    Guided Missile (Air to Ground) - Laser-Guided missiles launched by the pilot which lock on to and track enemy land vehicles and can acquire laser-designated targets even if they are out of line-of-sight. (Within Attack Helo, Gunner Position Only)
    Guided Rocket (Attack Helo Pilot Only) - The pilot's rockets are equipped with semi-active guidance systems, increasing accuracy and thereby range of effectiveness.
    Guided Shell (Tank) - A Smart Target-Activated Fire and Forget shell that can lock on to and track enemy land vehicles and can acquire laser-designated targets even if they are out of line-of-sight.

    Heatseekers (Aircraft) - Heat seeking missiles launched by the pilot which lock on to and track enemy aircraft.

    IR Flares (Aircraft) - Infrared flare launchers that when launched will distract incoming missiles and cause them to miss their locked target.
    IR Smoke (Land) - Smoke grenades enhanced with metal filaments that when launched remove laser-designation, spoof incoming guided missiles, and prevent enemies from revealing your position to teammates.

    Laser Painter (Aircraft) - Nose-mounted targeting systems designate an enemy vehicle in your line of sight automatically, painting them as a target for teammates using laser-guided weapons.

    Maintenance
    - Preventative maintenance procedures improve your vehicles recovery from damage.

    Proximity Scan - External sensors detect and reveal enemy units on your minimap.

    Reactive Armor (Land) - Reactive armor panels and/or stats absorb the impact from anti-tank weapons, protecting you from damage but becoming destroyed in the process.
    Rocket Pods (Jets) - A set of unguided FFAR Rocket Pods mounted under the wings.

    Stealth (Aircraft) - Engine tuning and fuselage coating materials disguise your vehicle's infrared signature, increasing enemy locking and tracking difficulty and decreasing the time you are revealed to the enemy from being spotted.

    Thermal Camo (Land) - Anti-reflective coating on your vehicle increases enemy locking and tracking difficulty and decreases the time you are revealed to the enemy from being spotted.
    Thermal Optics - A secondary weapon sight with thermal optics that highlights soldiers and vehicles for efficient target identification.
    TV Missile (Attack Helo Gunner Only) - TV-Guided missiles launched by the helicopter gunner which are flown by direct-feed-video.

    Zoom Optics - A secondary weapon sight with up to 3x magnification. (Within Attack Helo, Gunner Position Only)

    Updated OP. Included all Back to Karkand vehicles in their respective categories. Prefaced each vehicle with "(B2K)".

    Updated OP. Included the Customize Tables in game that you select for each vehicle so you can look at your load out at a glance and plan.

    Also a Tip: If you are the secondary gunner for an armored vehicle (MBT or IFV) and you have Proximity Scan set for that vehicle, you will give the Primary Driver of the vehicle Proximity Scan even if they do not have it selected. This "perk" will exist as a 4th unlock for them for free. It will continue even if you leave the vehicle. So if you know you are going to be the secondary gunner for a vehicle anyways then you might as well give your driver this free perk. It's the only unlock that I know of that does this.
