The infantry fighting vehicle was an armored personnel carrier of the United States Armed Forces before the war. It appears in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.

CharacteristicsEdit

The IFV is a six wheeled vehicle designed for supporting infantry operations and transporting soldiers through the battlefield in comfort. It is a fairly tall design, with a forward driver's position, sitting over the primary engine, in a compartment isolated from the troop section. The vehicle can carry six soldiers and two power armor units in reasonable comfort in this section, with a note that power armor units must stand for transportation. For defense, it is provided with a 105mm gun in an autonomous dorsal turret and a pair of ball-mounted 76mm guns to the sides of the driver's cabin, giving it its distinctive whiskers.[2]

The IFV could be used for a variety of purposes, such as transportation or, if fitted with a gurney and other necessary equipment, a medical evacuation vehicle.[3] Due to its shielding, it could also be used to transport radioactive waste, for example, in decontamination operations.[4]

NotesEdit

  • Some loot can usually be found in or around these vehicles. This includes stimpaks, weapons (dependent on player level) and other items.
  • There are unique NPC idle animations that are used with this vehicle. These can be observed by going to any checkpoint where they are found after at least one recurring defense quest is completed. Any surviving allies can be observed apparently restoring or salvaging the vehicles.
  • The APC contains a design flaw with the frontal turrets known as a shot trap. Rather than being deflected, shots striking the indented zones from the front may be guided into the turret socket, potentially disabling it.

AppearancesEdit

The IFV appears in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The IFV is referred to as an APC in the game's files, but the factually correct designation is IFV, as it has weapons that firmly place it in this class.
  • The IFV was modeled by Istvan Pely.[5]
