Design

A general-purpose, all-terrain utility vehicle, the V3S is a Cold War-era, single engine 6x6 truck that is designed for both civil and military purposes.

Features
The V3S is available in up to six additional variants aside from the baseline transport model, ranging from an open-top transporter, fuel carrier, ammunition transport, field repair, and salvager/supply carrier models.

Manufactured at almost the same time as the Ural truck (its Soviet-made counterpart), the V3S is similarly designed to be a rugged and multi-role capable vehicle that can be configured for a variety of tasks. It is mainly used by NAPA guerillas, as well as with the Takistani Army and militia, along with their rebel counterparts.

Mobility
The V3S handles slightly worse compared to the Ural, and has much more difficulty maintaining its stability while driving off-road due to having a higher centre of gravity.

When it comes to acceleration and top speed however, the two trucks are virtually identical to each other and have barely (if any) noticeable differences.

Drawbacks
Like the Ural, neither the cab nor rear flatbed of the V3S provides ballistic protection for its passengers or crew. The V3S' stability issues also make it extremely easy for the entire vehicle to rollover even at moderate speeds, especially when driving off steep terrain.

Crew Capacity
The V3S always has enough seats to carry both the driver and a single cab passenger.

Camouflage

  • Olive: Olive green paint scheme with a white tarpaulin (on covered models). Used by Chernarussian/Takistani civilian, NAPA, and Takistani rebel trucks.
  • Desert: Two-tone desert tan/olive green camouflage scheme with a white tarpaulin. Exclusively used by Takistani Army/Militia V3S variants.

Variants

Baseline variant. Can transport up to thirteen passengers. The rear section is covered with a tarpaulin which can hide its passengers from view (note that the tarpaulin does not provide ballistic protection).

Identical to the baseline transport variant but lacks the tarpaulin cover. Transports the same number of passengers.

Carries spare parts, tools, and additional components that can repair nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Has only two seats for the driver and a single cab passenger.

Visually identical to the Repair variant, but the rear container stores supply crates instead. It can re-arm nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. This is the only model of the V3S out of all the other logistics variants that is capable of transporting a third passenger who sits in the rear of the truck.

Has a fuel tank attached to the rear flatbed. It can refuel nearby land vehicles and grounded aircraft. Contains the same amount of seats as the Repair variant.

Visually identical to the Reammo variant. It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to a nearby town to increase its "supply" value.

Visually identical to the Repair variant but cannot actually repair ground vehicles or aircraft.

It will automatically be dispatched from the closest forward base to disassemble destroyed vehicle wrecks on the battlefield.

(*) These variants are completely non-functional in normal gameplay and only work in Capture The Island (CTI) scenarios created with the Warfare module.

Trivia

  • The in-game V3S is modelled after the real-world 1964 variant of the "V3S" that was then-designed by Praga, a truck manufacturer based in the former Czechoslovakia at the height of the Cold War.
