Features[edit | edit source]

  • Designated target: vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within line of sight and vision range. Designated targets are called out and takes increased damage.
  • Recon package: this vehicle's recon package provides an improved vision range when stationary.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Small, nimble, and powerful the CRAB is a lightning flanker, scout, and sniper, capable of dealing massive damage with its four-shot salvo of ATGMs and quickly relocating to avoid counterattacks. When played appropriately, the CRAB is a deadly threat to oblivious, low health enemy vehicles whose attention can be drawn away by a teammate MBT. Must be driven carefully at speed, as the smallest obstacle can send you spinnning.

Operators: N/A

The CRAB (Combat Reconnaissance Assault Buggy) was an experimental design by Panhard. It was a 2012 attempt to introduce yet another very light and heavily customizable scout vehicle with several unique features such as its driving system, which allowed it to basically drive sideways. Unfortunately for Panhard, the CRAB failed to attract any customers.
