The Panzercycle is a heavily modified motorcycle, having a single tank tread instead of two wheels. It is registered as a Private Military Company vehicle. Dual Miniguns are mounted on the front of the vehicle, which coupled with high power and high rate of fire, can decimate targets of armor type 2 or weaker very fast.
The Panzercycle can be purchased from Eva in the PMC Shop for an exorbitant sum of $750k after collecting 10 Spare Parts. Though it runs on a single large tread, it is still very fast and can outrun most civilian vehicles and can somehow, miraculously perform turns. Like all other motorcycles in the game, the Panzercycle can seat two people.
That's right, folks: it's a sports bike with a tank tread and two miniguns.
Considering this vehicles speed and weaponry, the Panzercycle should be used for blitz attacks - especially against enemy roadblocks (before the arrival of AN and PLA armor). Also, thanks to its high speed and small size, it is a difficult target to hit.
However, considering its disguise (or rather lack thereof) and weak armor, it does not work so well as a passive transit vehicle.
Overall, the Panzercycle should be used primarily for the novelty, rather than overall funtionality.
- Originally, the Panzercycle had two rockets. According to EA, this was dropped because it was too radical of an idea.
- Note that the chassis of the Panzercycle is exactly the same as the Sport Bike
- The word "Panzercycle" is a portmanteau of the English word "cycle" and the German word "panzer." Together this roughly makes "armor-cycle."
