The Rooikat 76 is a tier 5 AFV originating from South Africa, and is sold by Oscar Faraday.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Subtle movement: moving on a low speed doesn't reduce your camouflage factor.
  • Designated target: vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within line of sight and vision range. Designated targets are called out, and take increased damage.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Despite looking like a wheeled TD/AFV hybrid, the Rookat has very good handling and maneuverability characteristics, handling almost like a tracked vehicle. It handles well in reverse too.

It has low damage per shot, and there are no upgrades for stock ammo. In PvP/Glops It needs to remain hidden to apply any serious damage due to low alpha. In PvE however, its relentless rate of fire can result in causing large amounts of damage over a match, and even running out of ammo. It has reasonable turret armor, enough to repel autocannons.

Almost all upgrades are geared to camo, view range and spotting.

History[edit | edit source]

Production of this armored reconnaissance/fire support vehicle began in 1989 and the South African army accepted it into service in 1990. Around 240 vehicles were produced. The Rooikat was developed to replace the armored reconnaissance vehicles operated by the South Afrcan army at the time. The model turned out to be rather successful and some of these vehicles continoue to be used to this day.
