Design

The Army 4x4 is a four-wheel drive, British-made off-road vehicle.

Features
It is available in two more variants besides the baseline troop transport model, an open-topped model (also shared with law enforcement officers) and an armed scout variant that has a .50 cal heavy machine gun turret mounted onto it.

The primary light utility vehicle utilised by the Royal Army Corps of Sahrani, the Army 4x4 is a rugged off-road capable transport that roughly serves in the same role and capacity as the American HMMWV.

Though it lacks the modularity of the HMMWV, the unarmed variants of the Army 4x4 compensate by being able to transport two additional passengers at a time compared to the HMMWV's meagre capacity of only three (not including the driver/gunner).

RACS-operated, HMG-armed variant.

Mobility
All variants of the Army 4x4 are quite fast and handle better on rough terrain compared to the SLA's UAZ.

Drawbacks
Being unarmoured, the Army 4x4 is naturally ill-suited for direct combat against other ground vehicles. Its lack of anti-tank weaponry also prevents the Army 4x4 from being able to tackle tanks and other armoured vehicles like the American HMMWV is capable of.

Crew Capacity
All variants support both a driver and a single cab passenger who sits alongside them in the front of the vehicle. The unarmed transports can carry up to five more passengers in the rear for a total of six, whereas the armed Army 4x4 is unable to transport any passengers at all (besides the cab passenger).

Variants

Arma2-render-army4x4desertopen.png
Visually identical to the baseline transport but lacks a hard roof and rear tarpaulin cover, leaving only the roll cage bars intact.

Transports the same number of passengers as the baseline transport. This variant is used by both RACS military forces and Sahranian law enforcement officers.

Armed variant.

This model features an M2 .50 cal heavy machine gun fitted to the turret ring in the centre of the vehicle. It feeds from a single pre-loaded 100-round belt box and carries a further five boxes spare to reload from (for a total of 600 rounds).

It can only transport a single passenger.

Camouflage

  • Desert: Desert tan paint scheme. Used exclusively by RACS-operated Army 4x4s.
  • Police: White paint scheme with a blue stripe running across the chassis and the POLICIA signage written on it. The national emblem of the Kingdom of Sahrani is emblazoned on the vehicle's hood.

Protection

All variants of the Army 4x4 have base armour values of 30.

Body

The vehicle's hull can resist up to 30 points of damage.

Engine

The engine can incur 12 points of damage before failing.

Fuel tank

The fuel tank can only take 9 points of damage before rupturing.

Wheels

The Army 4x4's tyres will burst if they take more than 7.8 points of damage.

Armament

The gunner on the armed variant handles the turret-mounted M2 heavy machine gun:

NOTE: Only available on the Army 4x4 (M2) variant.

Base damage value Initial velocity (m/s)
26 930

.50 cal heavy machine gun. Useful against infantry and unarmoured/lightly-armoured ground vehicles as well as low-flying helicopters.

It can attain a fire rate of up to ~ 545 rounds per minute and has a muzzle velocity of 930 m/s. It takes 10 seconds to reload a fresh belt box. Accuracy-wise, the M2 has a dispersion of 0.002 rad at ranges of up to 1,200 metres.

Trivia

  • The Army 4x4 is modelled after the "Defender" series of off-road vehicles manufactured by Land Rover (parodied as an in-universe product of the Hand Over company).
  • Until the release of the Queen's Gambit expansion pack, the Army 4x4 was the only military vehicle that was also shared with civilians.
