The LAV-25 is an IFV featured in Battlefield 2, operated by the United States Marine Corps. Its counterparts are the PLA WZ551 and the MEC BTR-90. It sports two major differences between its counterparts, one is that the LAV-25's Bushmaster cannon has a medium rate of fire; the WZ551's cannon is slower and the BTR-90's  is faster. Another difference is that the LAV-25 has two machine gun ports on the rear. The WZ551 has just a single Gun port on the rear and the BTR-90 has all four of its guns on the sides of the vehicle.

— Battlelog description

The LAV-25 is an IFV featured in Battlefield 3.

SingleplayerEdit

The LAV-25 first appears during the mission Operation Swordbreaker, wherein the Blackburn and his unit are transported into the deployment zone via an LAV-25. The Misfit units are transported by both LAV and Growler during the later events of Battlefield 3 with their primary appearance being in Rock and a Hard Place, where two of them support the push through Russian airborne units. The two survive, but are destroyed by a Su-25 Frogfoot towards the end of the mission. A lot more LAVs can be seen coming slowly out of the forest, providing constant suppressive fire on both sides of the area that Blackburn and the other Marines are fighting through. They can't be damaged or destroyed and are unable to reach due to the field limit. They also never damage any enemies.

MultiplayerEdit

The LAV-25 is the primary infantry fighting vehicle of the USMC. It spawns in several of the vehicle-heavy maps, with its primary appearance being in the Conquest(PC) and Rush variants of Kharg Island, where three of them are included for the USMC. It is also found on both rush and conquest on Seine Crossing. The vehicle also appears on the conquest variant of Noshahr Canals, Grand Bazaar, and Tehran Highway. It is the opposite of the BMP-2 operated by the Russian team, and can accept all of the same attachments. The vehicle also contains 4 Port Firing Weapons.

Although it is statistically the same to the BMP-2, the BMP-2 has a lower profile, better reticle for long range engagements, smaller turn radius due to being a tracked vehicle, and one rearward facing firing port. The LAV-25's top speed is significantly higher than that of the BMP-2, allowing it to advance on objectives as well as drive behind cover faster.

The LAV-25 is an IFV featured in Battlefield 4.

It is the Infantry Fighting Vehicle for the USMC team. Like other IFVs, it is amphibious and can travel through water.

The driver can fire HE shells by default, or can equip APFSDS-T Shells or Canister Shells instead. APFSDS-T shells travel at an increased velocity and are effective against vehicles, but do not deal any explosive splash damage. Canister shells act like a shotgun, dealing damage in a spread, effective against infantry and light vehicles, but are ineffective against heavy vehicles. All shells from the main cannon are loaded in twelve-round servos.

For the driver's secondary weapon, the Coaxial LMG is unlocked by default, and can be used against infantry and light vehicles. Alternatively, for anti-armor purposes, the TOW Missile or Zuni Rockets can be equipped. Zoom Optics are unlocked by default, but may be replaced with IRNV Optics or Thermal Optics.

For countermeasures, IR Smoke is unlocked by default, which jams enemy lock-on and can hide the vehicle from enemies, even against IRNV or thermal optics. The Fire Extinguisher can help the vehicle recover from being disabled. The Smokescreen does not counteract lock-on or thermal imaging, but provides effective visual cover, and makes the vehicle immune to critical damage. Active Protection will defeat all incoming anti-tank projectiles for a short time while active.

The gunner is always armed with a machine gun turret, and can equip one specialization. This may be Gunner SOFLAM to laser-paint targets, Belt Feeder to improve the MG's reload time, Proximity Scan to scan for enemies around the vehicle, or Gunner Incendiary to damage enemy infantry in vicinity. In addition, optics may be chosen.

Other passengers may fire light machine guns with unlimited ammo through the firing ports and still be completely protected.

TriviaEdit

  • In Battlefield 3, The wheeled LAVs such as the LAV-25, LAV-AD, and BTR-90 can be affected by a bug that can speed it up to 130 KPH. This occurs when it jumps on a sand dune, and lifts off of the ground.
