The '''micro air vehicle''' ('''MAV''') is a type of small unmanned aerial vehicle ([[UAV]]), typically even smaller than the small unmanned aerial vehicle ([[SUAV]]).
+
The '''RQ-16A T-Hawk''' is a man-portable micro air vehicle ('''MAV''') that has been in use with the [[United States Navy]] since 2008 and is produced by Honeywell International, Inc. It was proposed to be used by the [[United States Army]] and would have entered service in 2011, but the program it was in was canceled in 2010. The craft comes with placement for both a downward and forward looking day or IR camera.

The '''MAV''' is a gadget available for the [[Recon]] class in ''[[Battlefield 4]]''. It functions in a similar manner to that of its predecessor, with one difference being that the third-person view of the MAV can be toggled.

Certain interactive items like car alarms and metal detectors can also be set off by MAV jamming. It is possible to achieve kills with the MAV by destroying an explosive like an AT mine, C4, etc., with the jammer. The resulting explosion from the explosives being destroyed can kill infantry and potentially destroy armored vehicles.

MAVs no longer inflict any impact damage against enemies, but can knock away enemy infantry without taking damage. MAVs have some immunity to some anti-air weapons, but can still be destroyed by other weaponry, jamming by enemy MAVs, or impacts with vehicles. MAVs do not take damage from enemy [[EMP UAV]]s, but can have their spotting abilities interrupted by them.
 
It can be destroyed by missiles, bullets, jamming by enemy MAVs, or impacts with vehicles. MAVs do not take damage from enemy [[EMP UAV]]s, but can have their spotting abilities interrupted by them. Although It's not big enough to be discovered in the sky at a distance, you can easily discover MAVs by using lock-on weapons or gadget like PLD, IGLA and Stinger. When using jamming function, MAV appears on enemy's minimap briefly.
 
   
 
While the MAV keeps its proximity scanner to detect nearby enemies, it is no longer active when the operator exits remote control. The sound emitted by the MAV is slightly altered, beeping at mid tone only when enemies are nearby.

*Like the EOD Bot, the time of day that is shown on the MAV's camera in both games is the time that is programmed to the Greenwich Mean Time zone.

*Dogfights can potentially occur between MAV's, though they may last a long time becuase managing to time a shot to destroy the other MAV may be difficult.

*During the beta, the MAV was able to carry [[C4]] for use in a C4 UAV attack, and carry other soldiers (similar to the drone elevator exploit). The C4 carrying ability was removed in the retail version (as with similar behaviors with the EOD Bot). The C4 packs will simply not stick to the device. The soldier carrying abilities were patched later in the March 1.04 update.

*Until the December 16, 2013 patch, the MAV and other drones could assist in flag capture.
*Strangely, soldiers uniforms will appear white when viewed in the MAV, but skin will be black, signifying that it is not hot.
