Age of Darkness The Vietnam War

Armoured cars are fairly fast units, and are noted for usually being the fastest vehicle to be built. While they don't perform well against heavily armoured units or dedicated anti-materiel weapon systems, armoured cars are powerful when used in flanking maneuvers and countering enemy cavalry rushes.

  • Fast-moving vehicle, with a decent sub-machine gun attack.
  • Deals added damage against infantry.




A special genus of armoured car, the armoured truck, is available for construction but unlike armoured cars doesn't need a dedicated Munitions Plant. Instead, Armoured Trucks are constructed from the Foundry. these units are weaker than Armoured Cars, but are still useful for fending off attacks by enemy machine guns and cavalry if so needed.

NotesEdit

  • The AB 41 has the ability to serve as a SPAD. Upgrading all Italian armoured cars to the AB 41 immediately converts all generic SPAD units under your command to the AB 41.
  • Armoured Lorries, although considered by the game as armoured cars, are cheaper but statistically much weaker than normal armoured cars.
