The Ifrit is an MRAP used exclusively by CSAT forces in ArmA 3.

Overview

  • Roles:
    • Troop transport
    • Reconnaissance
    • Fire support
« The Ifrit is a new Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle designed and manufactured in Russia. Its strengths lie in reliability in extreme weather conditions and crew protection, but its manufacturing costs are somewhat higher compared to other MRAPs. The Ifrit can be fitted with a RCWS turret and armed with a 12.7 mm heavy machine gun or a 40 mm grenade launcher.

Design

The Ifrit is a four-wheel drive MRAP-type vehicle that can fulfil many roles ranging from serving as a V.I.P. transport, escort vehicle, light troop transport, to reconnaissance. All in a well-protected and compact package.

Features
It is available in three variants: a baseline unarmed version that has no weapons mounted on it, and two separately armed versions that have a mounted RCWS turret fitted with either a 12.7 mm heavy machine gun or 40 mm automatic grenade launcher.

The geometry of the Ifrit is rather sleek and futuristic looking. It uses a sloped front that curves a bit at the corners, the sides and rear being flat at the top and sloping in the middle, and then flat again. The bottom is slightly sloped, as is the roof, to protect against land mines and small-medium explosives.

To access the vehicle there are four doors, two allowing access to the driver's section and two allowing access to the passenger compartment of which all doors are placed frontally. In the rear is yet another small door that provides access to the rear.

Mobility
With a top speed of 137 km/h combined with its large fuel capacity, the Ifrit excels at long-range or long-duration missions where refuelling would not be possible or for rapid missions that require high speed and mobility above all else. It also has a smoke generator fitted behind the vehicle that can be used to deploy a thick cloud of smoke that obscures it from view in an emergency.

Notable Traits
One aspect that makes the Ifrit above-average compared to its NATO and AAF counterparts is the crew placement.

The driver is placed in a separate section to the front that has a excellent visibility due to the large slanted windshield. Meanwhile, the rear of the vehicle, depending on the model, holds the gunner and up to three or four passengers. They are able to see outside through the eight low-profile, long windows along the side and corners of the compartment.

Drawbacks
Although it is well-armoured enough to protect its passengers against small arms fire, it cannot survive prolonged fire from against anything larger than 12.7 mm rounds. The wheels are also vulnerable to being shot out, as they are rather exposed and only have small armour plates flanking them from above and in front.

As previously noted, the driver is positioned in the front. The front and rear is divided by a wall of bars and screens, allowing the passengers to still communicate and visually see the driver but being separated from them. Depending on where a passenger (or the gunner) is seated, they will either see a screen or nothing else but steel bars. The two other seats positioned even further in the rear provide have limited visibility and little room to manoeuvre.

Crew Capacity
Regardless of variant, the Ifrit will always have a seating capacity of five personnel; the crew and three or four passengers. The crew includes the driver, and in the case of the armed variants, a gunner as well, which leaves enough seats for up to three dismounts.

Variants

Arma3-render-ifritgreenhex.png
Baseline variant.

This version seats a driver and up to four passengers. It is designed purely as a troop transport and does not have any armament.

This variant has a gross weight of 8392.04 kg.

Arma3-render-ifrithmggreenhex.png
Armed version of the Ifrit.

Using the unarmed version as the base, the sole difference is the RCWS turret placed atop, which has a 12.7 mm heavy machine gun fitted to it that has a single 200-round belt of 12.7 mm ammunition pre-loaded and another spare belt of 200 rounds in reserve (for a total of 400 rounds).

The RCWS is controlled by the gunner, whose seat is located in the front-left in the rear. The previously vacant passenger seat now serves as the control station for the turret. Other than that, its layout remains identical to the baseline Ifrit.

This variant has a gross weight of 8439.35 kg.

Arma3-render-ifritgmggreenhex.png
Another armed version of the Ifrit.

It also uses the unarmed version as the base, with the sole difference being the RCWS turret placed atop. The GMG variant uses a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher with a single belt of 96 40 mm high-explosive (HE) grenades. The RCWS is similarly controlled by the gunner, who is located in the same front-left seat in the rear.

This variant has a gross weight of 8439.35 kg.

Camouflage

All three variants have access to the same camouflage options:

  • Hex: Arid Hexacam camouflage pattern. Useful for forested, grass plains, and desert environments.
  • Green Hex: Tropical Hexacam pattern camouflage. This is used in heavily forested and tropic environments.

Protection

All variants of the Ifrit have base armour values of 200. They use Composite Armour plating but cannot be fitted with Slat cages or Explosive Reactive Armour blocks/panels.

The following highlighted positions serve as weak points on the Ifrit:

LEGEND
Green = Hull
Orange = Engine
Violet = Fuel tank
Maroon = Turret

Note that although only the armed Ifrit variant is depicted here, hit zones are identical for all models regardless of configuration with the exception of the turret.


Body

The Ifrit's body can survive 800 points of damage. It does not take additional damage from high-explosive (HE) type munitions but also does not reduce any amount.

Will result in a catastrophic kill if its integrity is compromised.

Hull

The hull can resist up to 200 points of damage. Only 20% of incoming damage will be shared with the Ifrit's main "health" pool.

Munition type Damage reduction (%) Velocity reduction (%)
Armour Piercing None 10
High-Explosive 80* 50
High-Explosive Anti-Tank 80* 80
Tandem High-Explosive Anti-Tank 80* 10

(*) Reductions only apply to the explosive component of the munition i.e. Tandem HEAT explosive charge

If the hull has been compromised, no reductions will be applied to the velocity/raw damage of incoming projectiles.

Engine

The engine can survive 100 points of damage before it fails. At least 40% of incoming damage will be shared with the Ifrit's main "health" pool. The engine takes 40% less damage from HE-type munitions.

Destroying the engine will not cause a catastrophic kill unless the Ifrit is at critical "health" status.

If damaged: Reduces power output, acceleration is decreased and it may become impossible to climb uphill.
If destroyed: Immobilises the Ifrit.

Fuel tank

The fuel tank can resist up to 100 points of damage before it ruptures. It reduces up to 90% of incoming damage from HE-type munitions. Only 20% of incoming damage against the fuel tank will be shared with the Ifrit's "health" pool.

A destroyed fuel tank will not cause a catastrophic kill on its own unless the Ifrit is critically damaged.

If damaged: Gradually leak 20% of remaining fuel over time.
If destroyed: Entire fuel supply will be drained over the course of several seconds.

Wheels

Each of the Ifrit's wheels are able to resist up to 250 points of damage. The tyres are susceptible to small arms fire and take 400% increased damage from HE-type munitions. However, none of the damage will be shared with the Ifrit's main "health" pool.

Destroying all of the Ifrit's wheels will be required to fully immobilise it. Depending on which and how many are left, it is entirely possible for the Ifrit's driver to continue moving even if there is only one tyre left (making simple manoeuvres will be almost impossible, however).

RCWS

The RCWS turret on armed variants can resist up to 250 points worth of damage. No amount of damage incurred is shared with the Ifrit's "health" pool.

Munition type Damage reduction (%) Velocity reduction (%)
Armour Piercing None 10
High-Explosive 60* 50
High-Explosive Anti-Tank 60* 80
Tandem High-Explosive Anti-Tank 60* 10

(*) Reductions only apply to the explosive component of the munition i.e. Tandem HEAT explosive charge

If the RCWS turret's armour plating has been compromised, no reductions will be applied to the velocity/raw damage of incoming projectiles.

Armament

The gunner position exclusively controls all weapon systems remotely on the armed variants. The gunner's optics have variable zoom capability, and can toggle either day, night or black-hot/white-hot thermal vision modes:

RCWS HMG 12.7 mm

Arma3-vehicleweapons-ifrit-rcwshmg127mm.png

NOTE: Only available on the Ifrit HMG variant.

Base damage value Aerodynamic friction Initial velocity (m/s) Penetration depth (mm)
30 -0.00086 910 35.49

Intended for infantry, unarmoured/lightly-armoured vehicles and low-flying helicopters. It has an effective firing range of 800 metres up to a maximum of 1,500 metres.

The RCWS HMG can attain a fire rate of up to 600 RPM and requires 20 seconds to reload a fresh box. Accuracy-wise, it has a fixed dispersion of 0.0012 rad regardless of distance.

The Fire Control System is only able to automatically zero on stationary targets and requires 1 second to finish adjusting. Manual zeroing is also possible, though only in increments of 100 m up to a maximum of 1500 m.

RCWS GMG 40 mm

Arma3-vehicleweapons-ifrit-rcwsgmg40mm.png

NOTE: Only available on the Ifrit GMG variant.

Damage type Base damage value Aerodynamic friction Initial velocity (m/s)
High-Explosive Anti-Tank 100 -0.001 241

Its HE grenades are intended for use against groups of infantry, unarmoured/lightly-armoured vehicles and medium-armoured vehicles with exposed turrets.

It has an effective firing range of 1,200 metres and has a fire rate of ~ 349 RPM. It requires 20 seconds to reload a second belt and for dispersion, the GMG is always set to a fixed value of 0.005 rad.

The FCS can only zero onto stationary targets and requires 1 second to finish adjusting. Like the RCWS HMG, manual zeroing is also possible up to a maximum of 1500 m.

Trivia

  • The Ifrit appears to be modelled after the ZiL "Karatel" (also known as the "Punisher"), an armoured vehicle that is currently in limited use with Russian security forces.
  • It remains as one of the few original vehicles from the pre-Alpha to feature animated doors. The rear entry hatch can still be configured to automatically open when passengers ride or dismount the Ifrit through a replacement addon, or toggled via scripting.
  • Just like the Hunter, the Ifrit is also incapable of surviving IED blasts even though it is classified as an MRAP. MRAPs in real-life are designed specifically to survive an IED blast and protect the crew from inside, regardless of how powerful the IED is.
