Design

The PBX is a single engine, small inflatable boat that is designed to be used for maritime and riverine operations in shallow waters.

Features
Used by SLA forces for amphibious assaults, it is faster than the American CRRC and is perfect for infiltrating troops onto unprotected shorelines discreetly.

Drawbacks
Since the PBX is completely unarmed and lacks armour plating, both the boat and its passengers are completely vulnerable to enemy fire. It should be kept out of danger unless it's absolutely necessary to do so, as even small arms fire will quickly sink the PBX to the bottom of the sea.

One other downside is that the PBX carries one less passenger compared to the CRRC, which limits the PBX to serving as a one-way infiltration craft for an infantry unit (as there isn't enough room for both a driver and all members of the fire team).

Crew Capacity
Aside from the driver, the PBX has a maximum seating capacity of three passengers. Each passenger sits leaning forward, with one positioned on each side of the boat (bow, port, and starboard) while the driver leans backwards towards the stern and handles the engine's controls.


Protection

The PBX Boat has a base armour value of 20.

Hull

The boat's bull can withstand up to 20 points of damage before its integrity fails.

Engine

The engine can survive 24 points of damage before failure.


Trivia

  • The PBX is the only non-BLUFOR/Independent vessel available in Armed Assault.

    • Troop transport
    • Fast-attack

Design

The PBX returns in ArmA 2, and is identical both function and performance-wise to its predecessor in most aspects.

Features
Now operated by both the Russian and Czech military, the PBX continues to serve as an alternate counterpart to the larger CRRC.

As with its predecessor, the PBX is slightly faster and has a higher turn rate but is otherwise identical in every other way. Neither the riders or the boat itself will survive long under heavy fire, as the PBX is purely intended to insert or drop troops off rapidly into battle.

Crew Capacity
The PBX supports a single driver and up to three more passengers.


Protection

The PBX has a base armour value of 20.

Hull

The boat's frame can survive 20 points of damage before breaking.

Engine

The engine can incur 24 points of damage before failing.


Trivia

  • ArmA 2's PBX simply reuses the same model used for its Armed Assault predecessor.
  • Prior to the release of the Army of the Czech Republic DLC, the PBX was the only non-BLUFOR/civilian watercraft that was exclusive to an REDFOR faction in ArmA 2.
