Do heli's have areas on their hitbox that give different damage values?

...like with tanks?

Are there any angle modifiers involved?
I know the attackjet cockpit has a different (bonus) damage modifier for example.

Nope, there are no angle modifiers for helis.

There is the glass-bug though, which I assume is what you mean with the attack jet cockpit. If you shoot the glass (with bullets, like gunner lmg, AA, miniguns etc.) they take extra damage (I think the exact value is ~1.7x, but don't take my word for it, the vehicle gurus will know this better than me). The glass-bug has been around since BF3.

Things people said

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

This thread may be of use: Vehicle Glass.

Not sure quite how much of it applies to BF4 but it's the most extensive testing we've ever done regarding heli modifiers.

That's too bad, DICE missed an opportunity there to give more depth to the game.

IIRC this applies to BF4 as well, at least for the Attack Helicopter.

Interesting. Always thought something was off with the Viper glass, now I know :)
