  • Unguided rockets: This vehicle fires dumb-fire missiles.
  • Recon Package: This vehicle's advanced optics increases its vision range when at a complete stop.
  • Missile Salvo: This vehicle may fire multiple rockets in a short period of time, potentially overwhelming APS defenses.

Class: Indirect Fire Support Vehicle (Prototype)

Developed: 2010-2014

Service: N/A

The SBS platform is one of the first domestic Indonesian armored vehicles developed by Pindad (the largest Indonesian armor producer) for Indonesia and is officially listed as a "light tank." It was developed sometime in the early 2010s with some prototypes in different configurations appearing in public in 2014 or so. The variant in the game is a long-range MLRS (multi-launch rocket system) fire support vehicle with a 122mm multi-barreled rocket launcher.

The platform is loosely based on the French AMX-VCI APC, which was in turn developed from the AMX-13 Light Tank. One of the countries the AMX-VCI was exported to was Indonesida with 200 bought in the 1960s. It seems that these APCs are currently still in service, although only approximately 70 of them currently remain operational. However, it's obvious that these vehicles no longer meet the requirements of modern combat, which is why they underwent a deep overhaul at Pindad. From various sources, it seems that this configuration is treated as essentially a component testbed for the launcher itself, not an actual finished combat vehicle. It also seems it is still being tested by Pindad as well as the Indonesian military, but it's unlikely this version will ever see mass-production or service.
