Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Fast, deadly, and stealthy, the FV721 Fox is a lightly armored but mobile vehicle, capable of flanking around slower enemy vehicles and punishing them with a devastating two shot ATGM launcher and 30mm autocannon. It also works well as a long-range fighter with excellent camouflage, a good view range, and excellent gun depression that make it stealthy and mobile enough to fire at targets, then quickly relocate. Close range fighting should be avoided if possible, because the low health pool and terrible armor of the Fox makes it an easy target for enemy guns.

History[edit | edit source]

This British-built reconnaissance vehicle was created as a replacement for the Ferret Scout Car and modernized the equipment for the British Army. Production began in 1972 and the vehicle entered service the following year, though it was eventually retired by the United Kingdom in the early 1990’s. Equipped with a 30mm autocannon with an option of ATGM launchers, the Fox offers a powerful punch in a compact package.
