GAZ - 3937 Vehicle

The GAZ-3937 in reality.

The GAZ-3937 "Vodnik" (Rus: ГАЗ-3937 "Водник") is a Russian high-mobility multipurpose amphibious vehicle manufactured by GAZ. Today, GAZ still produces the "Vodnik", the "Tigr" and the forthcoming replacement for the "Vodnik" as well as several civilian vehicles.

In Battlefield 2, The Vodnik is the medium transport vehicle of the Middle Eastern Coalition, Spetsnaz and the Russian Rebel Forces. It is just like any other medium transport vehicle from the other factions such as the American HMMWV in terms for speed, armor, and armament. The only differences between these vehicles are their models used in-game, as well as their rear passenger layout. Like the other medium transports in the game, it is armed with a 12.7mm heavy machine gun, a 360 degree firing arc, and an armor-plated shield in front of the HMG's trigger that offers protection from ground level small arms fire.

"Designed to replace an aging fleet of jeeps and provide the same versatility as the US Humvee, the Russians developed the High-Mobility Multipurpose Combat Vehicle known as the Vodnik. It's armed with a 12.7mm HMG and is configured to seat 4."
— In-game description

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the Vodnik 4WD is a light armored vehicle. It has room for four players: one driver, one gunner, one rear passenger and one passenger. When used by AI, there is usually only the gunner and driver's seats used.

SingleplayerEdit

The Vodnik is used by the Russian Army and the Latin American Militia. It is usually seen in combat situations and rarely available to the player.

In Cold War, it is seen accompanied by a few Russian Army members and has a driver and one gunner when Bravo Two enter the village. Preston Marlowe cannot use this Vodnik at all.

in Crack the Sky, it is seen as one of the numerous vehicles when Preston Marlowe is en-route to the satellite's crash point driving the CAV.

In No One Gets Left Behind, it can be seen three times: the first time, it is in the first base down the hill when Bravo Two is regrouped and are about to look for Flynn. This Vodnik charges down a road in the base. Preston Marlowe can drive this Vodnik and use its mounted gun. The second time, it can be seen in the base right after Bravo Two finish the quad bike race, this Vodnik approaches the wooden bridge from the other side of where the race finishes. This Vodnik will stop half-way across the wooden bridge. The third time, it can be seen after Bravo Two go across to the base, where there is a driver and a gunner.

In Airborne, it is seen in one of the cargo rooms, and is tied down, mostly covered with a tarp and lacks the top-mounted KORD.

MultiplayerEdit

In multiplayer, the Vodnik 4WD is used by the Russian Army. It is the vehicle with the least appearances in multiplayer. On other occasions, the Russian Army rather uses the Cobra 4WD.

— Battlelog description

The GAZ-3937 Vodnik appears in Battlefield 3.

MultiplayerEdit

It functions similarly to the American M1114 HMMWV. It appears on the maps Damavand Peak, Grand Bazaar, Noshahr Canals, and Tehran Highway. Small-arms fire can penetrate the Vodnik's windshield, so it is advisable to drive quickly if taking fire. Explosives can force open the rear doors or penetrate through the small side ports.

Unlike the HMMWV, the GAZ-3937 is amphibious. It is faster on land than the other amphibious vehicles, but loses much of its speed when waterborne. It offers more protection than the RHIB Boat, at the expense of being irreparable if stranded in water.

A heavily modified GAZ-3937 named "Barsuk" (badger in English translation) appears in the Aftermath expansion pack. It is equipped with an exposed KORD and a grenade launcher.

Another modified GAZ-3937—the Vodnik AA—is available in the End Game expansion pack. It is equipped with rocket pods and AA missiles. It is the counterpart of the American HMMWV ASRAD.


TriviaEdit

  • In Battlefield 2 and Battlefield Play4Free, the third and fourth passenger positions in the GAZ-3937 are much better protected than those in the HMMWV, thus making a Support user on the 3rd seat much more useful.
  • In the mission No One Gets Left Behind, the first GAZ-3937 can be driven simply by killing both the driver and gunner.
