Artillery Truck IRL

A Pierce-Arrow Armoured Lorry with a 2-Pounder Anti-Aircraft gun.

The Pierce-Arrow Anti-Aircraft Armoured Lorry was a mobile artillery vehicle produced by Wolseley Motors Ltd. of Great Britain. A Vickers Naval 2-pounder Mk II "Pom Pom" automatic gun was mated to a 5-ton truck provided by Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company of America, and enhanced with up to 7.5mm of armor. A Maxim gun could be fitted at various points along the body, including the co-driver's armored shutter. Forty-eight of these vehicles were produced in 1914 for the Royal Marine Artillery.[1]

"A fast formidable versatile but weakly armored gun platform serving many different roles in the Great War. The driver has a defensive machine gun that can be used when parked."
— In-game description

The Armored Artillery Truck is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1. First seen during the "Battlefield 1 Gameplay Series: Vehicles" trailer, it will be made available during the Open Beta.

Intended for long range bombardment, it is operated by a single player. The driver may freely switch between a machine gun mounted on the front of the vehicle (usable while driving), and an artillery gun on the top. The Artillery variant appears to use a QF 13-pounder 9 cwt gun, while the Anti-Aircraft uses the 2-pounder MkII. Although the artillery gun is in an exposed position in the truck bed, the operator remains safe inside the armored cab. The performance of these guns is comparable to the FK 96 and QF 1 AA base emplacements.

Among the truck's other features is the ability to quickly repair the vehicle if disabled, and to lay an anti-tank mine or smokescreen.

Though heavily armored, the truck does not have as much health as the various tanks, and will be outmatched at near range. The vehicle's long wheelbase can also cause it to get stuck in unforgiving terrain such as trenches.
