The Crew should get heroic armour!
Reason is simple: heroic armour units require 2 shots from a sniper to die instead of one.
Since the Flak 88 got nerfed against infantry and AT-guns it should also receive a buff to compensate, making it fulfil its role better. Only few people build the 88, since it's so lackluster and so easily decrewed.
Currently a single sniper kills the crew within 6-8 seconds, 2 snipers insta-gib the whole crew, even if you immediately react and try to kill the snipers (like sending in a bike/volks with mp40) the enemy can just decrew the gun and retreat his snipers and then rush in with his tanks. Even if you reman it his tanks will beat a 88 up close range.
I surely don't want to make it OP, it's just that the 88 already has lots of counters like mortars, AT-guns and of course every sort of artillery, even tanks if you don't spot for it properly. So there's no real need for allied snipers to take out the crew so easily.
Also, the Luftwaffe Vierlingsflak (the small one which is also base defense) should get heroic armour crews. The same reason applies to it: it's got plenty of counters, and I haven't seen one used in a competitive game ever. It can be decrewed easily, and in hands of an allied player the Flak deals way more damage against panzergrenadiers than against allied infantry.
