Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Featuring excellent mobility and a potent ATGM launcher, the VBL Ingwe is an ATGM-only vehicle which functions as a flanker and long-range sniper. With excellent camouflage, a good view range, and effectively limitless gun depression, the VBL Ingwe is tailor made for long range ridge poking and sniping, relying on its camo rating and mobility to make up for the fact that its armor is ineffective against many weapons.
