Vehicle Description
»

Design

The Ural is the latest in the Ural series of Soviet-era general purpose utility trucks. Amongst the changes introduced from its predecessor are a new engine, enlarged bonnet, and various cooling/electrical systems.

Features
The Ural is available in three more configurations (for a total of four) aside from the baseline troop transporter. These include a fuel cistern carrier, ammunition carrier, and a mobile repair truck variant.

The Soviet Union's counterpart to the American Truck 5T the Ural serves as the logistical workhorse of the Red Army. It mostly functions in the same role, and also shares identical configurations as well.

Mobility
All Ural variants only handle well on flat terrain or paved roads. Driving on rough terrain isn't a viable option since the Ural has a tendency to rollover on uneven surfaces.

Its top speed and turn rate are slightly lower than that of its American counterpart, though it possesses no other differences.

Drawbacks
Completely unarmoured, the Ural also doesn't possess any armament for self-defence. It will require protection from other forces if it's driven into a combat zone.

Crew Capacity
The basic transport Ural is able to transport both the driver and two passengers who sit in the front cab. Twelve other passengers can sit in the rear flatbed.


Variants

OFP-render-ural.png

Baseline transport model with a white tarpaulin covering the flatbed (the tarpaulin does not provide ballistic protection).

Can carry up to fourteen passengers at once.

OFP-render-uralammo.png

Vehicle ammunition resupply variant. It can re-arm nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft.

It can only transport two passengers at once.

OFP-render-uralfuel.png

Has a large fuel cistern attached to the rear flatbed. It can refuel nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft.

Contains the same amount of seats as the Reammo variant.

OFP-render-uralrepair.png

Carries spare parts, tools, and additional components that can repair nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft.

Contains the same amount of seats as the Reammo variant.


Protection

All Ural variants have 20 points worth of armour plating.


Trivia

  • Cold War Assault's Ural is modelled after the real-world "Ural-4320" 6x6 truck designed by Uralvagonzavod.

Library Description
»

Design

The Armed Assault Ural remains mostly the same as its Cold War-era counterpart.

Features
The Ural is now available in eight configurations (for a total of nine) aside from the baseline transport model. These include two civilian models, an open-top transporter, a fuel carrier, ammunition resupply vehicle, mobile repair transport, and a salvager/supply carrier variant.

An old but rugged and reliable utility truck, the Ural serves as the primary logistical vehicle of the SLA alongside the smaller UAZ.

Mobility
The Ural is mostly comparable to the 5T Truck handling-wise, though its top speed is much lower than its American counterpart.

Both are still fairly difficult to control on uneven surfaces however, and have a tendency to flip over on rough terrain while driving at high speeds.

Drawbacks
Unlike the 5T Truck, the Ural does not feature any sub-variants with armament. It lacks weaponry and cannot defend itself, which necessitates escort at all times if the Ural's crew are venturing near an active battlefield.

Crew Capacity
All variants of the Ural support a minimum of both the driver and two other passengers who sit alongside each other in the cab. The transport-oriented variants support up to fourteen passengers instead.


Variants

Arma1-render-uralolive.png

Baseline variant. The flatbed is covered with a tarpaulin which can hide troops from view (note that the tarpaulin does not provide ballistic protection).

It can transport up to fourteen passengers at a time.

Arma1-render-uralopenolive.png

Identical to the baseline transport variant but lacks the tarpaulin cover over the rear flatbed.

It transports the same number of passengers.

Arma1-render-uralrepairolive.png

Carries spare parts, tools, and additional components that can repair nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft.

It can only transport the cab passengers and no other crew and/or riders.

Arma1-render-uralammoolive.png

Similar to the Repair variant (visually) but the flatbed is now covered by a tarpaulin and carries supply crates instead of vehicle components. It can re-arm nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft.

Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.

Arma1-render-uralfuelolive.png

Visually similar to the Open variant, but the flatbed only carries a fuel barrels concealed by camouflage netting. It can refuel nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft.

Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.

Arma1-render-uralolive.png

Visually identical to the baseline variant but cannot actually transport any troops.

It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to a nearby town to increase its "supply" value.

Arma1-render-uralopenolive.png

Visually identical to the Open variant but cannot actually transport any passengers.

It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to disassemble destroyed vehicle wrecks on the battlefield.

Arma1-render-uralammoolive.png

Arma1-render-uralyellow.png
Identical to the baseline transport variant, but only used by Sahranian civilians.

Arma1-render-uralopenblue.png
Also identical in capability to the Civil variant of the Ural.

(*) These variants are completely non-functional in normal gameplay and only work in Capture The Island (CTI) scenarios created with the Warfare module.
(**) This variant is intended for CTI use, though it will functional as per normal in non-Warfare missions.


Camouflage

  • Olive: Olive green paint scheme. Used exclusively by the SLA.
  • Yellow: Bright yellow paint scheme. Used on civilian Ural trucks.
  • Blue: Light blue paint scheme with a white tarpaulin (in the case of the covered variant). Also used by Sahranian civilian Urals.

Protection

All Ural variants have base armour values of 32.

Body

Ural hulls can resist up to 32 points of damage.

Engine

Their engines can survive just 12.8 points of damage before failing.

Fuel tank

The fuel tanks can only take 9.6 points of damage before rupturing.

Wheels

The Ural's tyres will burst if they take more than 4.8 points of damage.


Trivia

  • Despite what its in-game Library Description states, the Armed Assault Ural is actually modelled after the real-world "Ural-4320" and not the "Ural-375D". The 4320 is an updated variant of the 375D that uses a diesel-powered engine instead.

Design

Returning in ArmA 2, the Ural continues to serve as the primary logistical vehicle of several factions.

Features
Not including civilian models, the ArmA 2 Ural is available in seven different configurations (for a total of eight) aside from the baseline transport model. These include an open-top transport model, fuel tanker, ammunition carrier, mobile repair vehicle, and a salvager/supply carrier variant.

The Ural also features a separate anti-aircraft cannon-armed model that can be used as a low-altitude air defence vehicle, or as an anti-infantry fire support vehicle.

A low cost and multi-role vehicle, the Ural is a common sight in former Soviet nations and is popular with armies and civilians alike.

It is employed by all of the Chernarussian factions, from the CDF, ChDKZ insurgents, and even (albeit the ZU-23 variant only) with NAPA guerillas. The Takistani Army and United Nations peacekeeping forces sent to Takistan also operate the Ural to a limited extent.

It is largely comparable to the (slightly) smaller and older V3S which uses a similar configuration to the Ural.

The main difference between the two is that the Ural is easier to control while driving on unpaved terrain, while the V3S is less balanced and struggles to maintain stability when driving off-road.

Mobility
Speed and acceleration-wise, the Ural is somewhat lacking compared to its newer counterpart used exclusively by the Russian military. Handling-wise, the Ural is also far less agile and has greater difficulty maintaining speed on sharp turns.

Drawbacks
While the Ural does feature an armed counterpart unlike other utility trucks (bar the Czech T810), the default variants cannot defend themselves and will require an escort if they are to be driven into areas with enemies present. They are similarly just as lightly armoured and can be easily destroyed by small arms fire.

The armed variant must also sacrifice the ability to transport passengers to be outfitted with its turret, which limits its usefulness outside of serving as an improvised AA/anti-infantry vehicle.

Crew Capacity
Regardless of variant, the Ural will always be able to carry the driver and up to two more two passengers who sit in the cab alongside them.


Variants

NOTE: The BM-21 Grad variant is not listed here. For specific details on the Grad variant, see here.

Arma2-render-uralinsurgent.png

Baseline variant.

The rear section is covered with a tarpaulin which can hide troops from view. The tarpaulin does not provide ballistic protection. Can transport up to eleven passengers on its rear flatbed and an additional one in the cab (for a total of three).

Arma2-render-uralopeninsurgent.png
Identical to the baseline transport variant but lacks the tarpaulin cover. Transports the same number of passengers.

Arma2-render-uralrepairinsurgent.png
Carries spare parts, tools, and additional components that can repair nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Has only three seats for the driver and two cab passengers.

Arma2-render-uralammoinsurgent.png
Visually identical to the Repair variant, but the rear container stores supply crates instead. It can re-arm nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.

Arma2-render-uralfuelinsurgent.png
Has a large fuel cistern attached to the rear flatbed section. It can refuel nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.

Arma2-render-uralzu23insurgent.png

Visually identical to the Open variant but the rear flatbed cannot transport any passengers.

In its place, a ZU-23 AA turret has been mounted, which is pre-loaded to feed from a single 40-round belt of high-explosive (HE) shells. The ZU-23 has an additional nine belts in reserve for a combined total of 400 shells (including the pre-loaded belt).

The cab can seat the same number of passengers as the baseline transport variant.

Arma2-render-uralammoinsurgent.png
Visually identical to the Ammunition variant. It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to a nearby town to increase its "supply" value.

Arma2-render-uralrepairinsurgent.png
Visually identical to the Repair variant but cannot actually repair ground vehicles or aircraft. It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to disassemble destroyed vehicle wrecks on the battlefield.

(*) These variants are completely non-functional in normal gameplay and only work in Capture The Island (CTI) scenarios created with the Warfare module.
(**) This is the only variant of the Ural that is actually operated by the NAPA faction. NAPA does not utilise any other model of the Ural.


Camouflage

  • Woodland: Olive green paint scheme with dark brown camouflage blobs. Only used on CDF Ural trucks.
  • Insurgent: Olive green paint scheme with spraypainted stroke patterns. Used by ChDKZ-operated Urals.
  • Orange: Bright orange paint scheme. Used by Chernarussian civilian Ural trucks.
  • Blue: Light blue paint scheme with a white tarpaulin (in the case of the covered variant). Used on Takistani civilian Ural trucks.
  • Olive: Flat olive green paint scheme. Only used on NAPA Urals outfitted with ZU-23s.
  • Desert: Standard two-tone desert tan/olive green camouflage scheme. Used on Ural trucks operated by the Takistani Army.
  • UN: Flat white paint scheme with large 'UN' initials on the cab's hood. Exclusively used by the Chernarussian contingent of United Nations peacekeepers.

Protection

All Ural variants have base armour values of 32.

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

LEGEND
Green = Body
Orange = Engine
Violet = Fuel tank

All Ural variants share the same component hit zones regardless of their intended configuration.

Body

The vehicle body on all trucks can resist only 32 points of damage.

Engine

Their engines can survive just 12.8 points of damage before failing. A damaged engine will prevent Urals from being able to attain their top speed.

Fuel tank

The fuel tanks can only withstand a meagre 9.6 points of damage before rupturing. Incurred damage will cause Urals to gradually leak fuel over time.

Wheels

The tyres on all Ural variants can only incur 4.8 points of damage before bursting.


Armament

Only the gunner position on the ZU-23 variant operates the gun battery:

ZU-23

Arma2-vehicleweapons-ural-zu23.png

NOTE: Only available on the Ural (ZU-23) variants.

Main article: ZU-23

Quad 23 mm autocannons. Fires HE shells that are powerful against infantry, unarmoured/lightly-armoured ground vehicles and low-flying helicopters.


Trivia

  • Non-interactive and heavily rusted wrecks of the Ural can be seen throughout Altis and can be placed with the editor in ArmA 3. None of the in-game factions actually have access to the Ural however, and the vehicle itself is not present as a usable vehicle either.
