Official AddOn Weapon

'Kozlice'

================================

DESCRIPTION:

The Czech-manufactured "Kozlice" over/under rifle-shotgun is a dual-barreled hunting weapon with a polished walnut stock. The weapon has two fire modes: "Ball", which will fire a single rifle shot, and "Shell" which will fire a shotgun round. Shotgun rounds consist of seven individual pellets, each of which is noted in your ammo display. After firing in either mode, the gun needs to be manually reloaded.

M163 Anti Aircraft Unit

======================

DESCRIPTION:

The M-163 Vulcan is an M-113 with a 20-mm cannon attached to the chassis, and has been in use as a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun since the 1960's. Because of the high rate of fire, the Vulcan can only carry enough ammunition for about 1 minute of sustained firing.

Su-25

======================

DESCRIPTION:

The Sukhoi Su-25 'Frogfoot' is the Russian equivalent of the American A-10. It's more sturdy than the Su-17 - enough to survive light fire from anti-aircraft weaponry - yet is still capable of carrying a heavy bomb load. Nicknamed 'Grach' or 'The Rook' by the Russians, the plane is known to have weak navigation, sensor systems and night attack capabilities. However, it is more manoeuvrable than the A-10, and its two turbojets give it more speed with a shorter take-off distance. The Su-25 'Frogfoot A' only has room for one pilot.

Trabant

======================

DESCRIPTION:

With a less-than-sporty 28 horsepower to its name, the two-cylinder, two-stroke engine which powered the Trabant has attracted some derision over the years - but there's no denying the significance of this vehicle as an icon of Eastern European industry. Its distinctive body shape is constructed from duraplast panels (plastic, reinforced with cotton fabric) attached to a galvanized steel shell. And although the last Trabant was produced in 1991, following the reunification of East and West Germany, a network of fan clubs across Europe affectionately preserves its memory.
