Garford-Putilov IRL

A Garford-Putilov in 1918

The Garford-Putilov was a Russian heavy armored car used during World War I. Built on frames of Garford Motor Truck Co. lorries imported from the United States, they were largely considered to be rugged and reliable by their users. Despite this, their total weight of about 11 tons and 30 hp engine only allowed the vehicle to reach a maximum speed of 10 mph. The vehicle was also top-heavy which gave it very limited off-road capability. They were outfitted with a single 76.2mm cannon in a turret with 270 degrees of traverse at the rear of the vehicle, and two or three 7.62 mm machine guns. Two of these machines guns were in casemate like mounts towards the front of the vehicle, but the guns could not provide full frontal cover at short range.

Besides the countries that emerged from the ruins of the old Russian Empire, Garford-Putilov armoured cars were also deployed by German forces. The Germans captured several of the vehicles, and put them to some use towards the end of World War I, and post-Armistice in the "Freikorps".[1]

— In-game description


The Putilov-Garford is the heavy armored car set to be featured in the Battlefield 1: In The Name Of The Tsar expansion. It can currently be seen in the CTE build of Brusilov Keep as a heavy vehicle option.

Like the Artillery Truck, the driver must switch to a secondary seat in order to use the vehicle's main weapon, a 76.2 mm cannon. Two additional passengers can operate side-facing light machine guns.

The build seen in CTE is capable of using smoke and can drop supplies for nearby infantry.

It features three Vehicle Packages: Armored Assault Package, Armored Anti-Tank Package, and Armored Reconnaissance Package.
