Design

The Kamaz is a family of Russian-made 6x6 light utility trucks. It uses a conventional layout with a front-mounted engine and a all-metal forward control cab.

Features
There are a total of six more configurations of the Kamaz aside from the baseline troop transport variant. These include a fuel tanker, ammunition transport, field repair vehicle, and a salvager/supply carrier variant.

Mobility
Although slower than its American counterpart, the Kamaz has surprisingly decent off-road handling and can accelerate more quickly compared to the older Ural truck. Due to its higher centre of gravity, it does face a greater risk of a rollover when turning at high speeds.

Crew Capacity
Regardless of variant, the Kamaz always has a capacity of three seats for a crew that consists of a driver and two passengers who sit in the cab alongside the driver.

Variants

Arma2-render-utilitytruck.png
Baseline variant. Can transport up to eleven passengers on its rear flatbed.

The rear section is covered with a tarpaulin which can hide troops from view (note that the tarpaulin does not provide ballistic protection).

Arma2-render-utilitytruckopen.png
Identical to the baseline transport variant but lacks the tarpaulin cover. Transports the same number of passengers.

Arma2-render-utilitytruckrepair.png
Carries spare parts, tools, and additional components that can repair nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Has only two seats for the driver and a cab passenger.

Arma2-render-utilitytruckammunition.png
Visually identical to the Repair variant, but the rear container stores ammunition and ordnance instead.

It can rearm nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.

Arma2-render-utilitytruckfuel.png
Has a large fuel tanker attached to the rear flatbed section.

It can refuel nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.

Arma2-render-utilitytruckammunition.png
Visually identical to the Ammunition variant.

It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to a nearby town to increase its "supply" value.

Arma2-render-utilitytruckrepair.png
Visually identical to the Repair variant but cannot actually repair ground vehicles or aircraft.

It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to disassemble destroyed vehicle wrecks on the battlefield.


(*) These variants are completely non-functional in normal gameplay and only work in Capture The Island (CTI) scenarios created with the Warfare module.

Protection

All variants of the Kamaz have base armour values of 32.

Body

Kamaz hulls can survive 32 points of damage.

Engine

Their engines are only capable of withstanding 12.8 points of damage. Only 40% of damage on this component is shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool.

A damaged engine will prevent the vehicle from being able to attain their top speeds.

Fuel tank

The fuel tanks (not the cistern on Fuel variants) can incur up to 44.8 points of damage before failing. At least 50% of damage on the tanks will be transferred onto the vehicle's main "health" pool.

A damaged tank will cause the vehicle to gradually lose fuel over time.

Wheels

The tyres on all variants can only take 12.8 points of damage before bursting. Only 30% of damage is shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool.

Trivia

  • The in-game Kamaz/Utility Truck is based on the "KamAZ-4310" family of 6x6 trucks used by the Russian military in real-life.
