The SCUD is a ballistic missile launcher that is exclusively used by Soviet military forces in ArmA: Cold War Assault.

Overview

  • Role:
    • Ballistic missile launcher
« This mobile wheeled launcher is capable of firing long-range ground-to-ground SCUD missile from far behind enemy lines. The Russian-made missile itself is capable of delivering high explosive, chemical or even nuclear warheads with devastating accuracy.
Vehicle Description

Design

A powerful tactical ballistic missile mounted onto an 8x8 truck, the SCUD is a Soviet-made heavy artillery weapon that was employed at the height of the Cold War.

Completely non-functional in-game, the SCUD is mostly intended as a priority objective that must be destroyed in order to complete a mission.

As is to be expected from a vehicle of its size, the handling for the Transport Erector Launcher (TEL) itself is very poor due to the length of the vehicle's body. Even a simple turn requires a lot of room for the SCUD to manoeuvre around.

Naturally it also lacks any sort of armour plating, meaning that even a small amount of small arms fire can easily damage or outright destroy the SCUD.

Crew Capacity
The SCUD has a maximum crew capacity of four, which consists of the driver and four more passengers. It is unable to carry any additional passengers or crewmen.

Trivia

  • The SCUD is modelled on the real-world "MAZ-543" truck designed by the Belarus-based Minsk Automobile Plant (MAZ).
  • Its missile can be commanded to be launched (via script), but the whole sequence is entirely animated and is not considered to be an actual functional weapon.

The 9P117 SCUD-B is a ballistic missile launcher used by the Takistani Army in ArmA 2. It was added with the release of the Operation Arrowhead expansion pack.

Overview

  • Role:
    • Ballistic missile launcher
« The Scud is a series of tactical ballistic missiles developed by the Soviets during the Cold War. The Scud-B is the most prolifically launched of the series, with a production run estimated at 7,000.
The Scud-B is mounted atop of the 9P117 Uragan vehicle. The missile is raised to a vertical position by means of hydraulically-powered cranes, which usually takes four minutes, while the total sequence lasts about one hour.

Design

The 9P117 is exclusively used by the Takistani Army. Like its Cold War-era predecessor, the 9P117 isn't intended to be a functional vehicle, and is merely designed to be an interactive prop that can be driven but can't actually be used to attack any targets with.

Destroying the Takistani Army's SCUD TELs before they could be fuelled and launched is the primary objective of the U.S.-led Task Force Knight in the final mission of the Operation Arrowhead campaign.

Crew Capacity
The 9P117 is only capable of transporting the driver and three more passengers, who are all seated inside sealed cabins at both ends of the vehicle (to the front). It cannot carry any additional passengers or crewmen.

Trivia

  • Like in Cold War Assault, the in-game 9P117 is modelled after the same "MAZ-543" truck.
  • Although the 9P117 can be seen "firing" its SCUD should the player fail to stop them from launching in time, the projectile is simply a scripted and animated object that is not an actual missile.
