The Military Offroad is a Light Utility Vehicle used by Takistani civilians along with several BLUFOR and REDFOR factions in ArmA 2. It was added with the release of the Operation Arrowhead expansion pack.

Overview

  • Roles:
    • Civilian transportation
    • Weapons carrier
    • Troop transport
    • Special operations vehicle
« These offroads, introduced in 1948, pioneered the civilian all-terrain utility vehicle. Later, the Land Rover was adopted as a general brand for many four-wheel-drive all-terrain vehicles.

This is a premium asset that requires ownership of the Operation Arrowhead expansion pack.


The Military Offroad is a 4x4 light utility vehicle designed to withstand the most demanding off-road conditions.

Features
It is available in up to three more variants aside from the baseline troop transport model. This includes two armed variants which are fitted with either a .50 cal heavy machine gun or 73 mm recoilless rifle mounted onto the roof of the rollcage or the rear cargo bed.

The third variant is a special ops model that carries a 30 mm automatic grenade launcher and a 7.62 mm medium machine gun for the commander to use.

Rugged and highly versatile, the Military Offroad can fulfil a variety of roles ranging from passenger/cargo transportation to combat support.

Although mainly intended to be used as a transport to get from one location to another, due to its large and truck-like configuration, the Military Offroad can also serve as a weapons carrier thanks to its ability to mount various heavy weapons.

Mobility
Despite being one of the largest (and non-truck based) wheeled vehicles in ArmA 2, all models of the Military Offroad are surprisingly quite fast for their size.

They are easily able to reach speeds of up to ~ 114 km/h on flat terrain and upwards of 40 km/h while driving off-road.

Unlike its smaller civilian counterpart, the Military Offroad isn't as susceptible to rollovers on steep terrain and has overall more stability/control on rough surfaces.

Drawbacks
While it provides slightly better protection than the American HMMWV or Russian UAZ-469, the Military Offroad isn't fully armoured and can be easily destroyed by a hail of small arms fire or grenade rounds.

The armed variants in particular, lack any sort of overhead cover or concealment, which means that all passengers and crew are equally exposed to enemy fire.

Crew Capacity
All models support both the driver and a passenger who sits in the front-right seat of the vehicle. Depending on the variant, they can either support more passengers (up to six more in the case of the unarmed model) or a single gunner.

Variants

Arma2-render-militaryoffroadolive.png
Baseline unarmed variant. Can transport up to seven passengers at a time.

Arma2-render-militaryoffroadm2desert.png
Armed variant. The tarpaulin cover and windows are removed on this variant, leaving both the rollcage and its riders exposed.

A .50 cal heavy machine gun is fitted to the roof of the cage that feeds from a 100-round belt box, and has a further five boxes to spare (for a total of 600 rounds combined). This variant can only transport a single passenger in the front-right seat of the vehicle next to the driver.

Arma2-render-militaryoffroadspg9desert.png
Dedicated anti-vehicle/anti-personnel variant. It can transport the same number of passengers as the M2 variant, but has had the rollcage removed completely to make way for the 73 mm recoilless rifle in the back of the vehicle.

The SPG-9 has a total of 16 rounds worth of PG-9N or OG-9V grenades that are fitted with either high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) or high-explosive fragmentation (HE-Frag) warheads.

Arma2-render-militaryoffroadspecialczdesert.png
Special operations variant.

Mostly identical in appearance and configuration to the basic M2-armed variant, but has a 30 mm automatic grenade launcher attached to the top of the cage instead. The AGS-30 is pre-loaded to feed from a single 29-round grenade drum and has a further five drums spare (for a combined total of 174 grenades).

Meanwhile, the commander position located at the front-right seat of the vehicle has access to a forward-facing PKT 7.62 mm medium machine gun that feeds from 100-round belt boxes, and has up to three more boxes spare (with a combined total of 400 rounds).


(*) This variant is exclusively used by Czech 601st SFG units.
(**) These variants are only operated by the Takistani Army and their Republican Militia allies.

Camouflage

  • Red: Scratched and worn-out dark red paint scheme. Only used on civilian models.
  • Tan: Pattern-less coyote tan paint scheme. Used on Military Offroads operated by Czech and British military forces, as well as on some civilian models.
  • Olive: Olive green paint scheme. Only used by Czech Military Offroads operating in Bystrica.
  • Desert: Two-tone desert tan/olive green camouflage scheme. Used on all variants operated by the Takistani Army and Republican Militia.
  • CZ Desert: Another two-tone desert tan/mud brown camouflage scheme used exclusively by Czech special operations in Takistan. It is only applied to Special variants of the Military Offroad.

Protection

All variants of the Military Offroad have base armour values of 30.

Successful strikes to any of the following highlighted sections will inflict full damage to the component:

LEGEND
Green = Body
Orange = Engine
Violet = Fuel tank

Note that with the exception of the gunner's turret, component hitzones remain identical on all variants of the Military Offroad.

Body

Their hulls can resist up to 30 points of damage.

Engine

Their engines can survive up to 60 points of damage before failing. No damage is shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool.

A damaged engine will prevent the Military Offroad from attain its top speed.

Fuel tank

The fuel tank on all Military Offroads can take 30 points of damage before rupturing. No damage is shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool.

Damage the fuel tank will cause it to gradually leak fuel over time.

Wheels

The tyres on all Military Offroads can take 15 points of damage.

Armament

For regular armed variants, only the gunner controls the rollcage-mounted/rear bed-fitted M2 heavy machine gun, AGS-30 automatic grenade launcher, and SPG-9 recoilless rifle. Only the Special variant has the vehicle commander handle the auxiliary PKT medium machine gun.

Enhanced optics with magnification are not available on any of the armed Military Offroads:

Trivia

  • All variants of the in-game Military Offroad are modelled after the "Defender" series of 4x4 off-road vehicles (specifically the "110" model) designed by U.K.-based automobile manufacturer Land Rover, now better known as Jaguar Land Rover.
  • If looked closely at in-game, the Military Offroad's grille ornament/logo shows that it is manufactured by "Hand-Over" and is called the "Offender" instead of its real-world name.
