|«|| A Quadbike is an all-terrain vehicle with low-pressure tires and handlebars for steering. The military uses quad bikes for reconnaissance and to access terrain difficult for heavier vehicles.|
The Quadbike is a 4x4 tandem all-terrain vehicle designed for both civil and military use.
It is moderately fast for its size and handles well while going off-road. Its compact size and light weight also enables it to be airlifted either internally or via slingloading by all transport aircraft.
All together, this makes the Quadbike highly useful for scouting troops to move into locations that would otherwise be impossible to traverse for larger vehicles. Care should still be taken when driving off-road however, as the Quadbike does have a tendency to flip over if driving at high speeds on uneven terrain.
It should be noted that both the Quadbike's design and intended purpose means that it lacks any sort of armour plating to provide protection for its passengers. Although its nimble size and good speed allows for it to dart in and out of areas, the likelihood of its riders being severely injured or outright killed from enemy fire is still very high due to how exposed the passengers are. Therefore, it is ill-advised to use the Quadbike as a mode of transportation in a combat zone besides inserting and performing fast (or improvised) extractions.
Quadbikes have a seating capacity of just two passengers (including the driver). The passenger sits in tandem just behind the driver.
- Black: Pattern-less chrome black paint scheme.
- Blue: Pattern-less blue paint scheme.
- Red: Pattern-less red paint scheme.
- White: Pattern-less white paint scheme.
- 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.
- Hex: Arid Hexacam camouflage pattern. Useful for forested, grass plains, and desert environments.
- Green Hex: Tropical Hexacam pattern camouflage. This is used in heavily forested and tropic environments.
- Digital: Digitised semi-fractal camouflage pattern used by all AAF vehicles and aircraft. Suited to forested and grassy environments, but otherwise useless in arid and desert terrain.
- Guerrilla 1: Two-tone green/olive green paint scheme using line and stroke patterns. Used only by the FIA.
- Guerrilla 2: Unique woodland camouflage designed to mimic forest brush. Uses a mixture of photo-realistic imagery in the form of leaves, branches and tree trunks.
- The Quadbike appears to be based on the real-life "Grizzly 450" ATV manufactured by the Yamaha Corporation.
