The M50 Ontos in Battlefield Vietnam is a lightly armored vehicle, capable of launching rockets from the launchers on either side. It is exclusively featured in Operation Cedar Falls. Like most tracked vehicles, it moves slowly and isn't very maneuverable. When compared to BRDM, it isn't amphibious and is slower, however, it have higher armor and far more destructive weaponary. Unlike other armored vehicles, however, it won't last long against rockets and grenades.
The player manning the Ontos has the choice to either fire one rocket at a time individually, or fire them all at once.
