Vdv buggy

The VDV Buggy in reality.

The VDV Buggy is Russian lightweight transport vehicle used by the Russian military. It is currently used by the Vozdushno-Desantnye Voiska (VDV); the Russian Airborne Troops and can be carried internally by primary VDV transport aircraft such as the Antonov An-12 and Ilyushin Il-76 to be airdropped on the front lines and serve a variety of roles ranging from troop transport, to reconnaissance, to fire support, to search and rescue. The vehicle has been in service since 2010, but it does not have an official designation by the Russian Armed Forces.

SingleplayerEdit

In Battlefield 3, the VDV Buggy is the Russian Army's light armored fast transport vehicle. It is seen in Rock and a Hard Place, where Russian paratroopers use them as mobile gun platforms in an effort to fend off Blackburn's squad and the U.S. Marine attack force. They can be destroyed, but cannot be driven by the player.

MultiplayerEdit

In multiplayer, the VDV Buggy appears as the Russian equivalent to the American M1161 Growler ITV. Like the former, the vehicle has space for three players. A driver who controls the vehicle, a gunner who operates the rear mounted KORD machine gun, and an extra passenger who sits next to the driver and can use whatever weapons they have with them as they sit in the vehicle. The VDV Buggy is resistant to gunfire, but the crew are largely exposed due to the lack of a windshield and doors, having speed and mobility over armor and protection. The vehicle can be easily destroyed by anti-tank weapons and explosives.

The VDV Buggy returns in Battlefield 4 as a light vehicle in use by the Russians.

SingleplayerEdit

It is first used by Russian troops in Baku. Recker can commandeer one after killing its occupants, but must do so before hostile soldiers occupy the machinegun. It is again used by Recker in Singapore when he finds one for his squad to get to their extraction point much faster.

MultiplayerEdit

The VDV Buggy is the Russian counterpart to the Chinese LYT2021 and the American M1161 ITV. It can be found at RGF deployments, as well as flags controlled by the RGF. The VDV Buggy is resistant to small arms fire, but the crew are largely exposed due to the lack of a windshield and doors -- also, the vehicle itself is vulnerable to anti-tank weaponry and explosives. If the vehicle drives into a static object at sufficient speed, it can catch fire and suffer significant damage.

The vehicle has space for three players: a driver who controls the vehicle, a gunner who operates the rear mounted KORD machine gun, and a passenger who can use his primary weapon and equipment.

TriviaEdit

  • In Battlefield 4's singleplayer, the VDV Buggy has 4 seats when used (for all 4 squad members), instead of the 3 in multiplayer. This is the same with all vehicles in singleplayer.
