Motorcycles are used by both Maldenian and Nogovan civilians in ArmA: Cold War Assault.

Overview

  • Role:
    • Civilian transportation

Design

The Motorcycle is a single-engined motorbike.

Features
Essentially the motor-powered counterpart of the Bike, Motorcycles serve as speedy transports that can quickly transport the driver from one location to another.

Being capable of reaching speeds of up 120 km/h on paved roads, Motorcycles can be particularly difficult to intercept with gunfire alone unless it's moving in a linear direction.

Drawbacks
However, they are by no means impervious to damage (unlike with Bikes) and can be easily destroyed by enemy fire or crashing into obstacles.

Since they obviously require fuel to operate and deplete it rather quickly, Motorcycle riders need to regularly top up at fuel stations or supply trucks to avoid being stranded mid-travel.

Crew Capacity
Motorcycles can only transport the driver themselves. They cannot carry any additional passengers.


Protection

Motorcycles have 10 points worth of armour plating.


Trivia

  • Motorcycles in Cold War Assault are based on the real-world "Jawa 353" then-designed by Czechoslovakian automobile manufacturer JAWA Moto.

Motorcycles are used by both U.S. Army forces and the SLA, as well as with civilians in ArmA: Armed Assault.

Overview

  • Roles:
    • Troop transport
    • Civil transportation

Design

Motorcycles return in Armed Assault for both civilian and military use.

Features
Powered by a single-cylinder engine, both variants (M1030s/TT650s) remain just as fast as their Cold War-era predecessors, being capable of easily attaining a top speed of 120 km/h depending on the terrain.

One improvement with Motorcycles in Armed Assault stem from their ability to carry a single passenger in the back. Whereas previously Motorcycles were limited to just ferrying the driver, they can now be utilised in a reconnaissance role, or for sniper teams requiring fast transportation.

Drawbacks
As before, all Motorcycles have non-existent armour plating and do not shield their riders from enemy fire. Since they're just as fragile as ever, crashing into obstacles (i.e. rocks) at even moderately fast speeds can instantly disable the Motorcycle and injure the riders.

Crew Capacity
Motorcycles (all variants) support both the driver and a single passenger who sits directly behind them.


Variants

Arma1-render-m1030.png

Baseline variant used exclusively by U.S. Army forces.

It can transport just a single passenger.

Arma1-render-tt650.png

Alternate civilian variant. With the exception of appearance, it is virtually identical to M1030s used by the U.S. Army.

It is also capable of transporting a single passenger.

Arma1-render-tt650.png

The TT650G is identical to civilian TT650s but is exclusively utilised by SLA forces.

Performance-wise, it is also the same as M1030s and can transport a single passenger in the back.


Protection

All motorcycle variants (M1030s/TT650s) have base armour values of 50.

Body

The bike's body can resist up to 20 points of damage.

Engine

Their engines can withstand up to 60 points of damage before failing.

Fuel tank

The fuel tank can survive 28 points of damage before it ruptures.

Wheels

Either of the bike's tires will burst if they take more than 2.5 points of damage.


Trivia

  • Armed Assault's M1030s are modelled after Japanese-made "M1030" military motorcycles designed by Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd.
  • The TT650s on the other hand are based on the "TT" series of motorbikes manufactured by the Yamaha Corporation, parodied in-game as the product of an Armaverse company named "Lamata".

Arma2-OA-logo.png

Motorcycles are used by several BLUFOR, OPFOR and Independent factions, as well as with Chernarussian and Takistani civilians in ArmA 2.

Overview

  • Roles:
    • Troop transport
    • Civilian transportation

Design

Returning in ArmA 2, Motorcycles once again serve as speedy two-man transports.

Features
It is now available in three variants: M1030s used by U.S. Marines and Army forces, TT650Gs utilised by various Chernarussian/Takistani factions and civilians, as well as the Old moto, only used by Takistani civilians/militias.

As an alternative to ATVs, both fulfil a similar role as fast transports and not much else.

Compared to their predecessors in Armed Assault, ArmA 2's Motorcycles are virtually identical and haven't changed in the slightest handling-wise.

Crew Capacity
No matter the variant, all Motorcycle variants only support the driver and one additional passenger.


Variants

Arma2-render-m1030.png

Exclusive to the U.S. Marines and U.S. Army forces.

It can transport one passenger.

Arma2-render-tt650grusted.png

Alternate variant primarily used by various Chernarussian and Takistani factions, ranging from the CDF, ChDKZ insurgents, Takistani Army scouts, NAPA rebels and Chernarussian/Takistani civilians.

It is also capable of transporting just a single passenger in the rear.

Premium content logo.png
This is a premium asset that requires ownership of the Operation Arrowhead expansion pack.


Arma2-render-oldmoto.png

Outdated variant used exclusively by Takistani civilians and pro-government Republican militamen.

It can only carry one passenger and has an overall weaker structural integrity. In all other aspects, it is no different to M1030s/TT650Gs.


Camouflage

Only TT650Gs have alternate camouflage options. Both the M1030 and Old moto are restricted to using their default schemes:

  • Red: Red and white-colour scheme.
  • Flames: Black colour scheme with a custom paintjob.
  • Rusted: Heavily rusted dark grey and orange colour scheme.

Protection

M1030s and TT650s have base armour values of 50, while Old bikes on the other hand have less with only 30.


Trivia

  • ArmA 2's M1030s/TT650Gs are simply updated ports of Armed Assault's Motorcycles. Only Operation Arrowhead's Old bike uses a unique model based on the real-world Czechoslovakian-made "Jawa 353" (as in Cold War Assault).
