The Weasel (previously known as the BRDM) is a light artillery unit unit in service of the Russian Federation. It is the successor of the original BRDM-1.

Lore

With his armed forces hard pressed to resist the joint counter-attack of the Europeans and their American allies, President Suvorov has ordered the mobilisation of additional vehicles from Russia's vast reserves of Cold War era equipment. The fast, lightly armoured BRDM-2 has been refurbished and armed with any surplus anti-tank guided missile available. Despite their overall dated technology, the vehicles can take advantage of their agility to surprise enemy tanks, which made them a useful, airdroppable support asset during the massive armoured engagements that took place in northern and central Germany during the ECA's advance on Berlin. It is also worth noting that the BRDM-2 has enough internal space to transport four soldiers in full gear.

Abilities

Ability Description
Deploy smoke screen icon
Deploy Smoke Screen
Launch four smoke grenades in front of the vehicle, creating a smokescreen that lasts for 3.5 seconds and make nearby enemies blindly fire at the smokescreen if they are not firing at something else. 30 seconds cooldown.

Overview

Initially, the Weasel is unmanned when dropped via a General's power, along with Rhino and Shilka.

The Weasel can in a way be considered the Tier 1 artillery unit that the Buratino wasn't. It is fast, highly mobile and lightly armored, seemingly following the GLA doctrine rather than the Russian one. It fires homing rockets in quick succession, but needs to reload after firing six. The rockets themselves don't deal a lot of damage, but many Weasels firing at once will surely destroy most targets. The Weasel performs suppressive fire, hit-and-run and defense roles rather well, and being a light unit it advances in veterancy very quickly, meaning the rockets will become more powerful. In addition, it is capable of carrying up to four battle-ready infantry units.

The rockets are unable to target air units however, making Weasels easy prey for all air units. Additionally, the rockets very inaccurate (but effective in the rare instances they hit) against infantry, and their range is also significantly shorter than other artillery units such as Tomahawks, and so they are also vulnerable to rival artillery. Like most Russian vehicles, when a Weasel is destroyed it will leave behind a wreckage that may be recovered by the MTP Recovery Vehicle.
