History[ | ]

Class: Infantry Fighting Vehicle (Prototype)
Developed: 1988-1991
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 2
Operators: N/A

The Marder 2 was an experimental German IFV, developed in the late 1980s to replace the aging Marder IFV. The initial goal was to produce 1000 of these new IFVs between 1997 and 2001. The first prototype was finished by 1991 and shown to Bundeswehr on September 17 of the same year. It featured thicker armor than its predecessor, a new turret and a brand-new Rheinmetall dual-caliber autocannon that could fire both 35mm and 50mm rounds. Despite its excellent qualities, the vehicle was never accepted in service due to its high cost and because it was no longer needed because of the fall of the Soviet Union. A single surviving prototype can be found today in the Koblenz military collection.

Vehicle Traits[ | ]

  • Harder to Spot: When moving slowly, this vehicle does not lose any camouflage and can effectively creep around.
  • Designate Target: This vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within its line of sight. Designated targets are marked to other players and take increased damage.
  • Autocannon Only: This vehicle is armed only with a (usually more powerful) autocannon.
  • PELE Rounds: This vehicle can fire special Penetrator with Lateral Effect rounds. These can penetrate thick armor and deal extra damage to the crew and internal components.
  • Trained Crew: This vehicle comes with a fully trained Level 5 crew.
  • Troop Compartment: This vehicle features a troop compartment, allowing you to repair your modules faster and to capture objectives more effectively.
