The LAV-25 in Battlefield 2 is the infantry fighting vehicle 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.

The LAV-25 is an Armored Vehicle in Battlefield Play4Free. Its Russian counterpart is the BTR-90. Its main weapon is a M242 Bushmaster 25 mm Chain Gun that does 60 damage; the alternate weapon is a BGM-71 TOW unlockable via Training specialization. It also has four passenger seats armed with light machine guns. It often comes off worse in a fight with a BTR-90 because the cannon have a significantly slower rate of fire than the cannon found on the BTR-90

"The LAV-25 is an eight-wheeled amphibious infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) used by the United States Marine Corps."
— Battlelog description
The LAV-25 makes another appearance 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

In the multiplayer aspect of Battlefield 3, 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.

TriviaEdit

  • On 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.
