Features[edit | edit source]

  • High spot and rof: had high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles.
  • Waterproof: this vehicle can remain longer under water.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Lightly armored and mobile, the LAV-300 offers excellent firepower on a fast chassis. With excellent gun depression, reload, and accuracy, the LAV-300 can fight at long range and punish unsuspecting targets with a fusillade of rapid, accurate fire. Featuring excellent mobility, the LAV-300 can easily maneuver around the battlefield, using its camouflage to stay hidden. But this mobility comes at the cost of protection, with the LAV-300 having virtually zero effective armor against incoming fire.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent accuracy
  • High mobility
  • High camo rating

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Negligible armor
  • Large target

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As a platform designed around firepower and mobility, the upgrades researched should reflect this. Upgrading to the Improved Laser Rangefinder, Improved Storage, and various ammunition upgrades will offer a much more varied arsenal, and upgrading to the Improved Suspension will boost the already stellar mobility.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Gun Breech

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Viktor Kirsanov, for rate of fire and aim speed
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off Road Driving
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Preparation/Explosive Shells
