Are the new battle sounds really an improvement?

Despite playing around in Settings I can not resolve what I think are problems.

1.  When you place your sights over a player and press F3, there is NO sound saying, "Support" this particular team mate.  You see in in chat but no sound confirming at all. 

2.  AA guns are almost silent and this really makes it uninvolving.  

3.  When you sink a ship there used to be a violent explosive sound, now you could hear a pin drop it is so quiet.

So, for me the game is less exciting and uninvolving.

If you have found a way to correct the above, please give directions.  Thanks.

I've noticed all this too, along with I can hardly hear another player shoot, even if he's right next to me, and when I'm in sniper mode, all the different voice sounds are all messed up.

I've had to lower the sound quality in my "game settings" menu.
This places less demand upon my computer's hardware and seems to smooth out the sound.
Also, there are features in the sound menu options that can be turned off to minimize the extra special effects put upon the game's sounds.

The new gunfire sounds are great when you hear them, but overall the sound mixing is all over the place.  Wildly differing volume levels in voice announcements, from whispering to yell-in-your-ear loud.  Shell splashes louder than your guns firing.  Horn blasts are now obscenely loud.  Anti-aircraft sounds are now very weak and uninspired.  And the new engine sounds are just plain bad.

They took a perfectly fine sound package and completely f:etc_swear:ked it up, for no reason.

I like how the guns sound, but the engine noise on dd's and cruisers sound like they are washing machines. And the bb's are not much better. But I really like the sound that the 419mm on Lion sounds.
