The Infantry Fighting Vehicle is a vehicle in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The IFV is a six wheeled vehicle designed for supporting infantry operations and transporting soldiers through the battlefield in comfort. It is a fairly tall design, with a forward driver's position, sitting over the primary engine, in a compartment isolated from the troop section. The vehicle can carry six soldiers and two power armor units in reasonable comfort in this section, with a note that power armor units must stand for transportation. For defense, it is provided with a 105mm gun in an autonomous dorsal turret and a pair of ball-mounted 76mm guns to the sides of the driver's cabin, giving it its distinctive whiskers.[2]

The IFV could be used for a variety of purposes, such as transportation or, if fitted with a gurney and other necessary equipment, a medical evacuation vehicle.[3] Due to its shielding, it could also be used to transport radioactive waste, for example, in decontamination operations.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The IFV is referred to as an APC in the game's files, but the factually correct designation is IFV, as it has weapons that firmly place it in this class.
  • The IFV was modeled by Istvan Pely.[5]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

IFV appears only in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.
