Design

The ArmA 2 Hatchback is a five-door compact car with a hatchback layout.

Features
It is available in both modernised and older variants, with the only difference being their appearance, layout, and maximum speed.

Each variant otherwise has virtually identical performance metrics and handling to the other.

Mobility
The ArmA 2 Hatchback is very similar to the Czech-made Touring car, and has very good handling while driving on flat surfaces.

The modern Hatchback can comfortably accelerate up to an absolute maximum speed of 241 km/h depending on the terrain. The older variant however, is limited to a maximum of only 125 km/h but can still drive at a decent pace of 101 km/h on most roads.

Drawbacks
Extremely fragile even by the standards of most civilian vehicles, Hatchbacks are ill-suited for use in any situation outside of getting from one location to another (on paved roads). A few bursts of gunfire are more than enough to cause both Hatchbacks to explode soon after.

While driving off-road, both Hatchbacks also have terrible handling and suffer penalties to their top speed. They will have difficulty climbing up hills and also face an increased risk of rollovers on steep terrain.

Crew Capacity
Aside from the driver, both variants of the Hatchback support up to four more passengers.

Variants

Modernised standard variant. Can transport up to four passengers.

Older model. Identical in capability to the modern variant, but has a reduced maximum speed.

Camouflage

  • Red: Bright red paint scheme. Only used by modern Hatchbacks.
  • Yellow: Scratched and worn-out flat yellow paint scheme. Only used on old Hatchbacks.

Trivia

  • The standard ArmA 2 Hatchback is modelled after the German-made Volkswagen "Golf Mk4" compact car (also known as the "VW Type 1J").
    • The old variant on the other hand, is based on the 1985 model of the "Passat B1" (alternately known as the "Typ 32") which was also manufactured by Volkswagen.
  • Amusingly enough, the fourth passenger seat is actually located in the boot/trunk of the Hatchback itself. The passenger will be forced into a fetal position while riding in this "seat".

The ArmA 3 Hatchback is driven by Altian civilians.

The sport variant of the Hatchback is currently the fastest ground vehicle in ArmA 3, with a top speed of 326 km/h (~90 m/s).

Overview

  • Roles:
    • Civilian transportation
    • Motorsports
« A four-seat hatchback car mass-produced in the Far East to satisfy increasing demand for family cars. Economical operation, enhanced safety and a roomy trunk made these cars widely popular in the whole of Europe. Also comes in a sporty version.

Design

The ArmA 3 Hatchback is a five-door car that uses a front-wheel drive layout.

Features
It is available in two variants; the standard version and a dedicated sports variant designed for motorsports racing. Unlike its standard variant, the sports model has a stronger engine that enables it to reach more than double the top speed of regular Hatchbacks.

Mobility
The Hatchback remains mostly similar to its predecessor in that it has fairly decent acceleration on paved roads but has otherwise average handling in general. As is to be expected, it also has very poor acceleration while driving off-road.

Drawbacks
The ArmA 3 Hatchback naturally retains the same flaws as its predecessor, namely that it doesn't have any armour plating that would protect its passengers from gunfire or explosives.

The vehicle itself is quite fragile as a result, and can be rendered disabled (if not becoming a total loss) from colliding with small objects or structures even at moderate speeds.

Crew Capacity
Both variants of the ArmA 3 Hatchback are capable of transporting up to four passengers (including the driver).

Variants

Baseline variant. Can transport up to three passengers.

Faster version of the baseline Hatchback. It has a top speed of over 326 km/h on flat and level terrain along with dramatically increased acceleration.

It is otherwise identical functionality-wise to the standard variant.

Camouflage

  • Beige: Pattern-less beige paint scheme.
  • Green: Pattern-less bright green paint scheme.
  • Blue: Pattern-less turquoise blue paint scheme.
  • Blue (Custom): Dark blue paint scheme with small lime green-coloured line patterns on the doors.

  • Orange: Bright orange paint scheme with a light orange stroke pattern.
  • White: White paint scheme with black and red-coloured stripe/line patterns.

Trivia

  • The ArmA 3 Hatchback is based on the "Civic" series of Japanese sedans/hatchbacks manufactured by the Honda Motor Co. Ltd.
  • Like the SUV, the release of Game Update 1.82 altered the Hatchback's handling so that it is possible to drift while turning.
    • An unintended side effect of this update was that the Hatchback was also made significantly more fragile due to the new armour system, which means that the Hatchback is liable to explode on even the slightest of crashes against hard objects.
