The subject of this article, VB1, has been cut from the final version of a Battlefield game.
The VBL (Véhicule Blindé Léger) is a light armored, all-terrain vehicle developed by Panhard in France. The vehicle is known to be amphibious, along with protection from small-arms fire, mines, shrapnel from artillery and possibly chemical WMDs.
Battlefield 2[edit | edit source]
Although the localization files say
KILLMESSAGE_VEHICLE_vb1 DELETED, it is actually a VBL (a VB1 being a type of motorcycle).
The vehicle HUD icon is called
xpak2_vbl (reusing the BTR-90 icon as a possible placeholder), which reinforces the VBL theory. In addition, in
constants.py a vehicle
xpak2_vbl also exists, classified as a transport vehicle for ranking purposes.
