The subject of this article, Zippo, has been cut from the final version of a Battlefield game.
he M132 Armored Flamethrower (nickname, "Zippo") was a United States built flamethrower armed variant of the M113 and M113A1 armored personnel carriers developed in the early 1960s. Approximately 350 were accepted into service.
The Zippo is a cut vehicle that was supposed to appear in Battlefield Vietnam.
The Zippo is a M113 with a small flamethrowing turret in place of the machine gun. The driver's hatch is covered, so the driver drives from inside the vehicle. Unlike the M113, it can carry only a driver, but still supplies ammunition to friendly forces when used by the USA.
- Strangely in the patch notes for 1.2v, the M132 is referenced in here. Meaning it was possible cut very late in development, why it was is unknown.
- The Zippo was originally found on Operation Cedar Falls, at the US armor base in place of the M113, but was replaced before the game's release for unknown reasons. This is evident because the M113 replacing the Zippo on this map spawns under the template ZippoSpawner.
