SUVs (full name: Sport Utility Vehicle) are a type of wheeled civilian vehicles.
ArmA 2 Edit
|Faction|| - United Nations|
- Takistan Army
|Seats|| 6 seats:
|Item capacity|| Max:
|Top speed||115 km/h|

- V.I.P transport
|«|| A SUV (sport utility vehicle) is a generic marketing term for a vehicle similar to a station wagon, but built on a light-truck chassis. In this case, this SUV is, in fact, a limousine.|
The SUV is a large-sized, four-door, 4x4 limousine vehicle designed to serve in a variety of roles, from acting as a defensive security vehicle to an armed transport.
It is available in two variants; a baseline unarmed version that has no weapons mounted on it, and an armed version that has a minigun mounted on pop-out turret ring.
The SUV's elevated clearance (compared to standard vehicles) gives it a better view of the road, and enables it to jump curbs and other terrain obstacles with little difficulty. Being a four-wheel drive vehicle also enables it to maneuver well while off-road.
However, this is also one of the main downsides to the SUV as its increased height also raises its centre of gravity, which means that the likelihood of a rollover while turning on corners at high speeds is quite high. The other downside is its large size and weight, which means that it has rather poor fuel economy. This makes the SUV ill-suited for travel on long drives where there is little opportunity to refuel.
The SUV has a seating capacity of up to six passengers (including the driver).
- The SUV appears to be the vehicle of choice for all PMC contractors operating throughout Takistan as even ION's rival company, Talon International, uses the SUV as their primary form of ground transportation.
- This can be seen throughout the campaign with the countless numbers of appearances that the SUV makes, and in the AAN news report that details an ambush on a convoy of Talon PMCs.
ArmA 3 Edit
|Seats|| 4 seats:
|Item capacity|| Max: 2000 kg
|Top speed||250 km/h|
|Fuel capacity||45 L|
The SUV in ArmA 3 is used by Altian civilians as a luxury vehicle.
- Civil transportation
|«|| A full-size luxury crossover SUV, not particularly suitable for off-road but with good on-road ability. Its powerful engine and 4x4 contribute to the enjoyable rides in higher speeds.|
The SUV is a civilian four-door, compact luxury vehicle.
Unlike the Hatchback, the SUV has greater clearance that provides the driver with a clearer view of the road. It is slightly tougher and less prone to collision damage as well; though being a civilian vehicle it obviously lacks armour for protection against gunfire.
Mobility-wise, it is quite similar to the Offroad in that it handles quite well while off-road but is faster in terms of acceleration. And just like the Offroad, the SUV is one of the few civilian vehicles that can be airlifted by aircraft; either through internal transportation or via slingloading.
The SUV has a seating capacity of up to four passengers (including the driver).
- Red: Pattern-less dark red paint scheme.
- Black: Pattern-less matte black paint scheme.
- Grey: Pattern-less medium grey paint scheme.
- Orange: Two-tone orange/black paint scheme.
- The ArmA 3 SUV appears to be based on the BMW "X6".
