Light support vehicle effective against infantry and snipers. Can capture territory. Vulnerable to small-arms. Can reveal nearby camouflaged units.

The Kradschützen Motorcycle Team (often referred to as simply "Motorcycle" or "Motorbike") is a DAK vehicle unit, available from the Headquarters.

The motorbike serves as the DAK's primary recon vehicle, utilizing its high mobility and sight range to scout out threats and provide support. Unlike most vehicles, it is capable of capturing territory.

This unit fires a forward facing MG that is effective against infantry and very light vehicles. While its damage is fairly small, it allows it to be an effective harasser in the early game especially as it can move rapidly to 'kite' enemies and continue firing. The motorbike can be a great threat against vulnerable targets such as weapons teams, as it can speedily flank them and force them to move.

Upon reaching veterancy level 1 it gains additional utility through the passive Tracer Marking. Enemy infantry damaged by the motorbike's weapon will be 'marked' temporarily, making them easier to hit with other friendly units. This allows the motorcycle to amplify damage for the rest of your army by simply harassing desired targets.

The motorbike has the fastest speed in the game, which should be taken advantage of to always be a thorn in the enemy. Its speed means it can easily move around capturing various points and retreat as necessary, or used to scout and flank as needed on the frontline. It also has one of the highest default sight range in the game at 45 meters, only being outclassed by the UKF Dingo at 50 sight range. The motorbike team does gain an additional +10 sight range when stationary however, thanks to its Binoculars passive.

On the other hand, the motorbike has very low durability and can be easily destroyed by nearly anything. As it inevitably takes damage, one can hastily retreat it and use Self-Repair to heal it back up without using another unit to repair it, though Self-Repair does have a long cooldown.

As time passes, it becomes more difficult to keep it alive due to how easily it can be dispatched by various weapons. Care must be taken as lots of micromanagement is necessary to continuing making effective use of it, though it can be rewarding as it still remains an excellent recon vehicle that can provide crucial intel if kept alive throughout a match.

This unit does not count as a vehicle for the purposes of Combined Arms and Vehicle Awareness.

Veterancy Abilities
