The Prowler is a Light Strike Vehicle used by both NATO forces and CTRG operators. It was added with the release of the Apex DLC.

OverviewEdit

  • Roles:
    • Troop transport
    • Reconnaissance
« The Prowler is a light strike vehicle (LSV). That means it’s agile, lightly armored and uses speed, maneuverability, and off-road mobility to avoid threats. Two configurations of Prowler exist. The armed variant is equipped with two machine guns. The front seated position carries .338 SPMG medium machine gun, while the top turret is equipped with a .50 cal heavy machine gun. With this arsenal, the Prowler is ideal for quick hit and run missions. The unarmed variant is stripped of all guns, but the back part of the vehicle is opened and has reserve seats for two additional soldiers.

Design Edit

Primarily designed for use by special forces, the Prowler is a lightweight, air transportable, highly mobile platform that can be configured for a variety of missions.

It is available in two variants; a baseline unarmed version that has no weapons mounted on it, and an armed version that has both a heavy machine gun mounted on the turret ring, and a forward-facing medium machine gun fitted to front where the commander's seat is.

Prowlers can be airlifted by V-44X vehicle transports, as well via slingloading with CH-67 and UH-80 helicopters. In contrast to its CSAT counterpart, the Prowler is slightly faster and has better control on rough terrain. However, the armed Prowler has to sacrifice a single passenger seat in exchange for possessing heavier firepower.

Variants Edit

  • Prowler: Baseline variant. It has enough seats to transport up to four passengers. All passengers are capable of firing out of the vehicle, but the vehicle itself is otherwise completely unarmed.
  • Prowler (Armed): Armed variant of the Prowler. It can only transport up to two passengers (not including the gunner) and instead has a Mk30 heavy machine gun mounted externally on a turret ring located in the centre of the vehicle. The Mk30 comes pre-loaded with a single 100 round belt box of 12.7mm ammunition, with additional belt boxes stored in reserve totalling up to 200 rounds.
    • Meanwhile, the commander (in the front right seat) can utilise the SPMG medium machine gun. It is loaded with a 130 round belt bag of .338 NM rounds by default, and has a further 260 rounds worth of belt bags in reserve.

Camouflage Edit

  • Black: Pattern-less matte black paint scheme. Has very limited uses outside of operations set during the night or in areas with very low visibility.
  • Olive: Standard pattern-less olive drab green paint scheme used by all NATO ground vehicles and certain aircraft. This can be universally employed in all types of terrain, but is more suited to arid and forested environments.
  • Sand: Pattern-less dull sand paint scheme. Primarily designed for use in arid and desert environments.
  • Dazzle: Two-tone dazzle pattern camouflage scheme used by CTRG forces. Intended for use in arid terrain, but can also be employed in tropic environments as well.

Trivia Edit

  • The Prowler is based on the real-world "DAGOR", an air-droppable light off-road vehicle developed by Polaris Industries.
  • It is one of the candidate designs taking part in the U.S. Army's Ground Mobility Vehicle (GMV) program.
