The Truck is a light commercial vehicle used by both Altian/Tanoan civilians, as well as in limited numbers with the FIA, Syndikat rebels, and their L'Ensemble successors in ArmA 3.

Overview

  • Roles:
    • Civilian transportation
    • Troop transport
    • Freight transport
    • Refuelling
« The civilian 4x4 truck is a highly customizable truck with off-road capabilities preferred by the civilian population. It builds on retro design, but utilizes a modern engine and electronics. Most common track setups are boxed, cistern and pick-up set.
Field Manual

Design

The Truck is a multipurpose, medium-sized, off-road capable van designed for a variety of roles ranging from transporting freight and/or passengers, to refuelling military and civilian vehicles.

Features
It is available in up to three variants; a standard pickup variant with an open cargo body, a fuel transporter with a cistern, and a freight transporter variant that has a large box to carry supplies.

Mobility
The Truck can accelerate and attain a fairly decent top speed on paved roads, and is also able to maintain this speed (mostly) while off-road. However it has subpar handling regardless of the terrain type, and there is always a risk of a rollover while turning on corners due to its higher centre-of-mass.

Drawbacks
As a civilian vehicle designed to carry only supplies or passengers, the Truck obviously lacks any kind of armour plating and will not survive being struck by explosives or anti-vehicle weapons. Riders on the Pickup variant are left completely exposed to enemy fire and can be easily shot unless the Truck is being driven at high speeds.

Crew Capacity
Passenger capacity depends on the variant, but all of them are able to carry at least three passengers. This includes the driver and up to two passengers - all of whom sit together in the enclosed cab.

Variants

Arma3-render-truckpickupwhite.png
Baseline variant with no additional features other than the ability to carry up to ten passengers in the rear open cargo body.

All positions (except for the cab passengers) can utilise FFV; the front two sitting in the open cargo body need to stand up in order to fire their weapons. They are able to rest their weapons on the cab's roof for better stability as well. This variant is primarily used by both the Syndikat and FIA as their troop transport, but is also used by civilians as well.

This variant has a gross weight of 2400.04 kg.

Arma3-render-truckfuelwhite.png
Has a large fuel cistern fitted to the rear of the cab.

It can refuel nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Has only three seats in the cab and cannot transport any other passengers. This variant is used by both the FIA and civilian airport workers.

This variant has a gross weight of 3200 kg.

Arma3-render-truckboxerwhite.png
Has a large box fitted to the rear of the cab that can store supplies. Contains the same amount of seats as the Fuel variant.

The FIA do not use this variant and is exclusive to civilians only.

This variant has a gross weight of 2509.4 kg.

Protection

All variants of the Truck have base armour values of 80. As civilian vehicles, they do not support being fitted with any additional armour modules.

The following highlighted positions serve as weak points on Trucks:

LEGEND
Green = Body
Orange = Engine
Violet = Fuel tank
Maroon = Fuel cistern (Fuel variant only)

Body

The body on all Trucks can survive 120 points of damage. It suffers an 800% damage penalty from high-explosive (HE) type munitions.

At least 50% is always transferred onto the Truck's main "health" pool. Depletion of the body's integrity will not cause a catastrophic kill unless the Truck is in critical status.

Engine

The engine can survive only 40 points of damage before failing. It takes 50% less damage from HE-type munitions, though 50% of incoming damage will be shared with the Truck's "health" pool.

It cannot cause a catastrophic kill by itself unless the Truck is critically damaged.

If damaged: Reduces power output, acceleration is decreased and it may become impossible to climb uphill.
If destroyed: Instantly immobilises the Truck.

Fuel tank

The Truck's fuel tank (not the cistern on the Fuel variants) can resist just 40 points of damage before rupturing.

10% of damage inflicted onto the fuel tank will be transferred onto the Truck's main "health" pool. It takes 200% increased HE-type munitions. A destroyed fuel tank will not cause a catastrophic kill unless the Truck is critically damaged.

If damaged: Gradually leak up to 50% of fuel over time.
If destroyed: Causes it to rapidly lose its entire fuel capacity in just a few seconds.

Fuel cistern

The Fuel variant's cistern can take up to 40 points of damage before rupturing. The cistern takes 200% increased damage from HE-type munitions, and at least 10% of it is also shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool.

Wheels

All four wheels are able to resist up to 120 points of damage. They incur a 400% damage penalty to HE-type munitions, though no amount of damage is shared with the vehicle's main "health" pool.

Destroying all four wheels will be needed to immobilise the Truck. Depending on which and how many are remaining, it is entirely possible for Trucks to continue driving with two out of four tyres missing (though making simple manoeuvres will be near-impossible).
