Tractors are civilian farming vehicles featured in ArmA: Cold War Assault, ArmA: Armed Assault, ArmA 2, and ArmA 3.


ArmA: Cold War Assault[]

The Tractor is used by agricultural workers throughout the Malden group of islands in ArmA: Cold War Assault.

Overview[]

  • Role:
    • Farming implement
« Zetor 5211 is an agricultural tractor based on the UR I series of tractors. It was first produced in 1984.
Vehicle Description
»

Design[]

The Tractor is a four-wheeled, single-engine tractor that is used for farming purposes. Throughout the Malden islands group, the Tractor is a common sight amongst Nogovan and Maldenian farm pastures alike.

Drawbacks
As a farming vehicle, the Tractor is obviously not designed for combat so regardless of the circumstances, it won't last very long should it come under fire. It is completely unarmoured, has stiff handling and accelerates very slowly. Though it has an actual top speed of 60 km/h, it will usually only be able to manage ~ 30 km/h on rough terrain.

Its glass also does not offer any protection for the driver, though its hull is surprisingly quite resilient and can be exposed to trace amounts of gunfire.

Crew Capacity
The Tractor's driver sits inside an enclosed cabin. It cannot transport any passengers aside from the driver themselves.


Protection[]

The Tractor has 30 points worth of armour plating.


Trivia[]

  • The in-game Tractor is directly based on the "Zetor 5211" designed by Zetor Tractors a.s., a tractor manufacturer based in the Czech Republic.
  • Its appearance in the Resistance campaign is somewhat anachronistic as the Zetor 5211 wasn't introduced into the market until 1985 (a full three years after the campaign's end).[1]
  • Prior to Patch 1.30 for Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis (the original release title of Cold War Assault before its re-release), Tractors would float slightly in the air whever they were placed as empty vehicles in the mission editor or were spawned by scripting commands.[2]

ArmA: Armed Assault[]

The Tractor is used by Sahranian farmers in ArmA: Armed Assault.

Overview[]

  • Role:
    • Farming implement
« Agricultural tractor.
Library Description
»

Design[]

Returning from Cold War Assault, the Tractor once again serves as a simple farming implement for both Northern and Southern agricultural workers.

Drawbacks
Unsurprisingly the Tractor continues to have all-round terrible statistics. Although it is quite fast when driven on paved surfaces, it has poor has difficultly climbing up steep terrain and will have its speed sharply reduced when driving off-road.

Unlike in Cold War Assault, the Armed Assault Tractor lacks any form of cover for the driver. Since the driver's seat isn't enclosed, they are even more vulnerable to being wounded by small arms fire.

Crew Capacity
The Tractor supports a single driver. It is unable to transport any additional crew or passengers.


Protection[]

The Tractor has a base armour value of 20.

Body[]

The vehicle body is capable of surviving up to 20 points of damage.

Engine[]

The engine can only withstand 8 points of damage before failing.

Fuel tank[]

The Tractor's fuel tank can only incur 6 points of damage before rupturing.

Wheels[]

Each of the tyres can take just 3 points of damage before bursting.


Trivia[]

  • Tractors in Armed Assault are modelled after the real-world 1957 "MF35" tractor designed by Massey Ferguson Ltd., an American farm machinery manufacturer based in the state of Georgia.
  • Before the release of Patch 1.06, a visual bug would cause the Tractor's exhaust fumes to appear from the driver's seat due to the model's proxy points being misaligned.[3]

ArmA 2[]

The Tractor is exclusively used by Chernarussian farmers in ArmA 2.

Overview[]

  • Role:
    • Farming implement
« Agricultural tractor.
Armoury Description
»

Design[]

The Tractor is a single-engined, four-wheel tractor that is predominately used by Chernarussian villagers.

Features
The Tractor is available in two variants: the baseline version that uses an enclosed cabin and a second, older model with no enclosed cabin.

ArmA 2's Tractors are surprisingly fast when compared to their predecessors in Armed Assault, though this does little to compensate for the Tractor's continued lack of protection and poor handling.

Crew Capacity
It only has a single seat inside the enclosed cabin that can fit the driver themselves. The Tractor is unable to transport any additional passengers.


Variants[]

Arma1-render-tractor
Older derivative that lacks an enclosed cabin. Aside from its appearance, there are no functional differences compared to the baseline Tractor.


Protection[]

Both variants of the Tractor have a base armour value of 20.

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

Arma2-tractor-hitpoints

LEGEND
Green = Body
Orange = Engine
Violet = Fuel tank

Body[]

The Tractor's body can incur 20 points of damage.

Engine[]

The engine can withstand 8 points of damage before failing. At least 20% of incoming damage is shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool. A damaged engine will prevent Tractors from being able to attain their top speed.

Fuel tank[]

The Tractor's fuel tank can survive 6 points of damage before rupturing. 50% of damage is shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool. Damaging the fuel tank will cause the Tractor to gradually leak fuel over time.

Wheels[]

The tyres can take just 3 points of damage before bursting.


Trivia[]

  • Like its Cold War Assault predecessor, the ArmA 2 Tractor is also based on a real-world tractor designed by Czech Republic-based Zetor Tractors a.s. In this case, it is directly modelled after the "Zetor 8811".
    • The Old version on the other hand, is similarly modelled after the 1957 model of Massey Ferguson's "MF35" tractor (as its model is directly ported from Armed Assault).
  • Both variants of the Tractor originally used different engine sound effects, but they were changed after the release of Patch 1.01.[4]

ArmA 3[]

The Tractor is used by Altian, Tanoan and Livonian farmers in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the Contact DLC.

Overview[]

  • Role:
    • Farming implement
« Found in farm barns across the globe, the common tractor is a reliable high torque engineering vehicle, used for towing trailers and many other agricultural tasks. This 2WD tractor with a diesel engine has proven itself reliable since the eighties. With solid maintenance and the occasional lick of fresh paint, this old workhorse has been in use by several generations of farmers to date.

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


Old but reliable as always, the Tractor is a diesel-powered agricultural vehicle favoured by farmers for its simple design and minimal upkeep. It is a common sight in Southern and Eastern Europe, as well as in the South Pacific.

Features
The ArmA 3 Tractor remains as nothing more than a farming implement. As with its previous iterations, it serves no real functional purpose in-game since it is unable to tow any vehicles.

Unlike its predecessor in ArmA 2, handling is slightly improved as the Tractor now has snappier brakes and a (slightly) increased turn rate. However, the ArmA 3 Tractor is slower and can no longer accelerate as quickly even when it is being driven on flat terrain.

Crew Capacity
The Tractor is limited to carrying just a single crewman consisting solely of the driver. It is unable to transport any passengers.


Camouflage[]

  • Blue: Pale blue paint scheme.
  • Green: Dark green paint scheme.
  • Red: Flat red paint scheme.

Protection[]

The Tractor has a base armour value of 80. It cannot be fitted with Explosive Reactive Armour blocks/panels or slat cages.

The following highlighted positions serve as weak points on Tractors:

Arma3-tractor-hitpoints

LEGEND
Green = Body
Orange = Engine
Violet = Fuel tank

Body[]

The vehicle's body can incur up to 80 points of damage. It takes 150% increased damage from high-explosive (HE) type weapons/munitions.

A wrecked body will always result in a total loss for the Tractor (once depleted).

Hull[]

The Tractor's hull can take 120 points of damage before its integrity fails. The hull incurs a severe 800% increased damage penalty from HE-type munitions.

50% of incoming damage is always shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool. A wrecked hull will not result in a total loss unless the Tractor is critically damaged.

Engine[]

The engine can survive 160 points of damage before failure. Destroying the engine will also result in a total loss for the Tractor.

If damaged: Engine power loss; Tractor is no longer able to attain its top speed.
If destroyed: Tractor will explode after a brief moment's delay.

Fuel supply[]

The Tractor has two components which store its fuel supplies: a larger (primary) tank near the engine which can tolerate up to 240 points of damage and a smaller (secondary) line which runs directly to the engine and can only survive a meagre 11.2 points of damage.

Destroying the primary tank can potentially cause a total loss if the Tractor is in critical "health" status.

If damaged: Entire fuel capacity will gradually drain over time.
If destroyed: If the Tractor is not at critical then the fuel supply will rapidly deplete over a few seconds. Otherwise, the Tractor will blow up shortly afterwards.

Wheels[]

The larger two rear wheels can resist 200 points of damage before bursting. The smaller frontal wheels on the other hand, are limited to just 140 points. No amount of damage on any of the wheels will be transferred onto the Tractor's main "health" pool.

All wheels incur a 400% damage penalty from HE-type munitions.


Trivia[]

  • Like ArmA 2's Tractor, the ArmA 3 Tractor is also based on the Czech-made "Zetor 8811".
