    BLUFOR IFV Guide

    By @Cyico & @Vericht for FK community.

    ARMA3 version: 1.74.142559, RHS version: 0.4.5.

    All rights reserved to their respected owners.

    PDF version: Soon

    This guide is devoted to the review of the BLUFOR Infantry Fighting Vehicles that we have on the server at the moment of the creation of this post.

    Almost all IFVs have year of production, mentioned in [square brackets].

    Unlike other guides there is not a lot of vehicles, so it'll be just one post.
