Features[edit | edit source]

  • PELE: good penetration potential and can deal major damage to crew and internal modules.
  • Designated target: vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within line of sight and vision range. Designated targets are called out and takes increased damage.
  • Recon package: this vehicle's recon package provides an improved vision range when stationary.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Speedy, powerful, and without a shred of armor on its frame, the VBR is a lightning flanker and sniper, capable of dealing massive damage with its four-shot salvo of ATGMs and quickly relocating to avoid counterattacks. When played right, the VBR is a deadly threat to oblivious, low health enemy vehicles whose attention can be drawn away by a teammate MBT. Since the VBR has little in the way of protection, care is required.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent camouflage rating
  • Very good top speed
  • Very good gun depression
  • Devastating burst damage with ATGM launcher

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Negligible armor
  • Long reload on the four shot ATGM
  • One crew member limits improvement options
  • Takes heavy damage from falling

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As the VBR is all about firepower and mobility, upgrades should be accordingly focused. For mobility, upgrading to the Improved Wheels will improve between-position mobility, while firepower upgrades like the EOSS System and Milan 3 ATGM will increase damage output.

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics

History[edit | edit source]

Based on the VAB, the French VBR is a medium armored reconnaissance vehicle that employs a wide range of protective measures, including a steel hull with composite armor and armored glass. The VBR has a great deal of mobility both on- and off-road, thanks to its adaptable hydropneumatic suspension.
