The Sudnik VP is a Russian rocket launcher in Battlefield 2142. This anti-vehicle weapon fires a single optically guided missile with a shaped charge that can penetrate up to two feet of steel. The multiple stages of the charge allow the Sudnik's missile to pass by traditional NxRA (Non-explosive Reactive Armor) for massive damage to vehicular armor.
In Battlefield 2142, the Sudnik VP is the standard rocket launcher of the Pan-Asian Coalition Army and is issued to the Engineer. Unlike the Mitchell AV-18, the Sudnik fires only one guided rocket, but it does the same damage to armored vehicles as all four of the Mitchell's rockets. The Sudnik can also damage Titan components (consoles, hallway shields, reactor cores), but not commander resources.
By holding, the player can manually guide the rocket towards distant targets. The rocket must remain in line of sight, and has a limited turning radius. Enemy vehicles may be alerted whenever the weapon is aimed their way.
Unlike many of Battlefield's rocket launchers, none of the anti-vehicle weapons in Battlefield 2142 produce significant splash damage.
