The LVT-4 Water Buffalo is an American amphibious transport.


Armed with a M1919 Browning machine gun in the hull, as well as four M2 Browning machine guns on pintle mount, the LVT-4 can provide suppressing fire while performing a landing assault. However, its armour is not very tough, therefore care must be taken not to engage with enemy tanks.

The ramp at the vehicle's back can be raised or lowered by holding down the up or down directional key respectively.

It can be found on port side of the Essex-class aircraft carrier.


The LVT-4 has a fire support variant in the form of LVT(A)-4.
