Military Offroad

The Military Offroad truck is a Land Rover Defender and is one of the largest, most versatile non-big-truck (Ural sized) vehicles in the game. It is also one of the rarest. The Defender (if you look closely on the front/back it says "Offender") seats 9 players and carries 10 weapons/tools and has room for 85 items and 10 backpacks. The Defender excels both on and offroad, hitting speeds of 114kph on tarmac and mid-to-upper 40s in the dirt.

There appear to be 2 variants: a model with the spare tire mounted on the hood painted matte brick red, and a model with the spare tire mounted high on the left side just behind the driver and is painted matte green and black. There is also a tan coloured version with the same 2 possible variations of tire location


  • handles well for such a large vehicle
  • holds a lot of fuel, ranges far and wide on one tank of gas
  • is powerful and climbs steep grades very well
  • is loud on pavement but remarkably quiet on dirt/grass
  • is great to transport a group of up to 9


  • rolls easily when hitting small objects like a trash mound at speed
  • spare tire on hood makes for poor view when driving in 1st person mode
  • rare, so getting one is not easy

Marthy I have also found a sand coloured Military Offroad, i have been told to get the proper hi-res texture for the car, you need to own one of the expansions? I'm not sure which one but in all this is a great vehicle to use, reliable, fast, durable and has a lot of space, i would recommend this over many other vehicles in the game.

This vehicle is a Land Rover Defender, but if you look very closely at the front or back of this vehicle, you'll see it says "Offender" instead of Defender. Nice to see the devs have a sense of humor. I offend zeds all the time by running them over in this excellent vehicle.

I found, and repaired one of these.. the Items Slots and Speeds listed here are incorrect, I changed them to the correct values, and someone just swapped them back to the incorrect values. THIS WILL NOT HOLD 121 ITEMS!! Only 50. Its off-road speed is also a more steady 53.

The wheel that is mounted on the side of the vehicle is actually positioned behind the front passenger seat, not the drivers seat (vehicle is right hand drive).

If you'd like the HD textures look for the PMC and BAF DLC's on Steam. And btw, there is also a desert coloured version of the Military Offroad, found at Green Mountain. :)

such a reliable car found one in the middle of a road exiting chreno with my group its faster than most vehicles on dayz

I have found two of these at green mountain filled with stanags, dmr mags, and grenades, on two separate servers. They were in rough shape but me and buddy fixed one up and there's nothing better. There is still the other one there if anyone wants to fix up, uk 352.

Hi guys, i dont know if this is normal: I found at green mounntain the Military Offroad in the yellow version (sand colour)! Is this a normal version or is this a bug?

By DayZFrost on 2012/11/12 at 8:35am

Can we get a solid confirmation on the 121 Item Slots? (it's 50, see edit below)) I have only had this truck for the past 24 hours or so and haven't had a chance to load it up yet.

Oh, and my Military Offroad is brick red and has the spare tire on the front hood, not the side of the vehicle as shown in the screenshot. I am loving this truck! BTW, it's really a Land Rover Defender, fyi.

Edit: Had more time to load my Military Off-road up with gear, and it does in fact carry a max of 50 items. I carefully counted as I placed items in, got to 50, and each following item after 50 ended up on the ground around the truck. So it does indeed have a 50 Item capacity. Weapons slots seems to be 10.

TWIG the slots are correct its just how many slots each item takes that differs

By BDUDE360 on 2013/04/04 at 10:37am

This makes no sense it the veihcal comparison chart its says 50 item slots then in the review it says 90 item slots. get Ur facts right

This thing dominates. Very durable, I've had a noob buddy driving it, hit a huge rock at pretty decent speed, and did like no damage to the vehicle. Holds LOADS of stuff but is still very fast offroad or on the road. This vehicle is my preferred choice over any other vehicle in the game. I always compare it to a "pimped" Ural. Because it holds a lot but gets the extra speed you always wish you had in the ural lol

By CraigMitchell44 on 2012/11/06 at 12:46am

Where can i find this?

By NoChives on 2012/08/01 at 1:17pm

I heard that this vehicle was removed, several accounts I've read have said that after a certain patch this vehicle disappeared.
