The LAV-600 is a tier 6 Tank Destroyer originating from the United States, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the ERC-90 F4, and leads to the B1 Centauro 105.

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.
  • First order ready rack: allows you to fire several round and reloads automatically.
  • Waterproof: this vehicle can remain longer under water.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Lightly armored and mobile, the LAV-600 features a powerful rapid-firing 105 mm main cannon with a four shot ready rack system, allowing it to apply massive burst firepower to an enemy vehicle and then quickly relocate while reloading. Best played as a long-range sniper, the LAV-600 is vulnerable to being caught on the reload.  If it does, it must use its mobility to rapidly disengage, as it has zero effective armor against enemy firepower.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent accuracy
  • High mobility
  • High camo rating
  • Powerful burst damage

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Negligible armor
  • Large target
  • Long reload on entire ready rack

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As a platform designed around firepower and mobility, the upgrades researched should reflect this. Upgrading to the Improved Gunner Sight, Improved Storage, and various ammunition upgrades will offer a much more varied arsenal, and upgrading to the Cummins QSC 8.3 Diesel Engine 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

An overall up-armored version of the LAV-300, the LAV-600 uses the turret of the Stingray 2, giving it significantly increased frontal protection and allowing it better offense against MBT vehicles. The rest of the vehicle sports an up-armored base of Cadaloy steel to provide resistance against many autocannons.
