The SBS Pindad is a Tier 8 special premium Armored Fighting Vehicle under Oscar Faraday's dealership.

History[]

Class: Indirect Fire Support Vehicle (Prototype)
Developed: 2010-2014
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 1
Operators: 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 Indonesia 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.

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 within its line of sight. Designated targets are marked to other players and take increased damage.
  • Missiles Only: This vehicle is only armed with anti-tank guided missiles or unguided rockets, making it only viable in mid-to-long-range combat, since both are often difficult to aim at short distances.
  • Unguided Rockets: This vehicle can fire rockets that, unlike ATGMs, cannot be guided once in flight.
  • Recon Package: This vehicle's set of advanced optics provides an improved vision range when stationary.
  • Missile Salvo: This vehicle may fire multiple ATGMs or unguided rockets in a short period of time, potentially overwhelming enemy defenses such as the APS.
  • Smoke Generators: This vehicle generates smoke all around it and lays down smoke cover by driving forward.
