|“||This stripped down Light Utility Vehicle provides extra seating for a small crew to engage in hit and run tactics.||„|
|— In-game description|
This open-top LUV allows its 3 passengers to use their secondary equipment. They can shoot from their seat with their secondary weapon. Passengers can also use their Binoculars even while the vehicle is moving, giving the crew a great awareness of their surrounding. However, the driver and passengers are vulnerable to incoming fire except from the front.
It is the fastest off-road vehicle in the game. It has slightly less health than other LUVs.
The firing arcs of the passengers are limited due to the dimensions of the vehicle:
- The codriver cannot shoot directly forward, as it will hit the windscreen of the vehicle, damaging it.
- The rear passengers can fire up to 45 degrees backwards to either side (for a total of 270 degree fire angle). However, shooting forward might result in hitting the vehicle or the passenger in front of you.
- All passengers can hit the driver.
Its fast off-road speed and turn rate combined with its relative resistance to small arms allows the Argonaut to simply run over enemy infantry encountered on open fields.
Its 4-seat capacity enables quick infantry hit-and-runs on armored vehicles. The passengers can be equipped with heavy equipment (Sticky Bombs, Anti-Tank RPGs) and simply dropped off right next to their target by the Argonaut.
