The Type 128 and 166 Schwimmwagen automobiles (English: Swimming Car) were amphibious four-wheel drive vehicles based off the four-wheel drive prototype of the Kübelwagen produced by Volkswagen. From 1941 through 1944, a total of 15,584 Type 166 Schwimmwagen cars were produced.
The Schwimmwagen appears as a replacement for the Kübelwagen in the Secret Weapons of WWII expansion. Similar to the LVTP, it is amphibious, although not as well armored or armed. It can seat two people and is armed with an MG42 machine gun operated by the passenger. Although the two never face each other, the vehicle can be considered equivalent to the SAS Willy, an armed version of the Willys MB added in the same expansion.

— In-game description
The Schwimmwagen is a vehicle featured in Battlefield V. It was first revealed in the Battlefield V — Official Firestorm Reveal Trailer (Battle Royale), and is currently only available in Firestorm.
The vehicle is the first and only water-going craft in game as well as being amphibious, allowing it to travel on both land and through bodies of water. The vehicle seats four with the driver and gunner up front and two passengers in the back. The gunner operates an MG 34 from a mount on the right side of the vehicle which has a limited traverse. Unlike vehicle-mounted machine guns in multiplayer, the weapon has a fixed ammunition supply that can only be replenished with Light Vehicle Ammunition looted from the game world.
