We have spotted some major vintage vehicles in the Black Ops: Cold War so far. Some of them are already pretty familiar with the gaming community while some might have gone under the radar. These vehicles featured in the multiplayer trailer also gives players a glimpse into what to expect in the campaign missions.
Soviets Mastered the Mobile Nuclear Platforms back in the ’80s. Additionally, they managed to keep a better arsenal of ICBMs than the United States. Mass-produced weapons were stationed in almost every Soviet-backed country. United States Military also countered this threat from every possible angle. Let’s take a look at what vehicle of destruction was at play during the cold war.
The Mig-23 Flogger “Flogger”
Designed by the Soviets back in the 1970s, the Mig-23 was a very capable aircraft. Two versions of the Mig-23 went into service. Various Air Force around the world had Mig-23 in their arsenal. In the trailer, we could spot them dropping bombs while fighting with the F-4 Phantoms simultaneously.
F-4 Phantom II
If anyone knows anything about the Vietnam war, they should aware of this iconic Aircraft. Phantoms haunted down Soviet Mig-21’s over the skies in Vietnam. Phantoms were reliable & agile. Overall, Phantoms served a crucial strategic purpose during its time in service.
Although it is hard to confirm which version of Topol-M was in use our best guess is the RT-2PM (SS-25) variant. This specific version of Soviet Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles came into service during 1985. In a world that is under constant nuclear threat, the Soviets managed to keep the United States in check with these Mobile ICBM platforms.
Mil Mi-24 “Hind”
Already appeared in Black Ops 2010 in several missions. A one of a kind multipurpose attack helicopter from the Soviet Union. The Mi-24 is extremely popular among Air Forces worldwide. The upgraded version of both the Mi-24 is Mi-35 are still in active use in many countries right now.
No matter what you say, but the T-72 tank is a true beast. The T-72 tank is something that laid the foundation of modern tanks like the T-90. Black Ops featured T-72 in the multiplayer reveal.
A vintage helicopter that made its way to many theaters of war. Bell UH-1N is a successor of the famous Bell UH-1. We have seen it in both singleplayer and multiplayer trailer of Black Ops Cold War. However, any campaign mission featuring this helicopter will be an exciting one.
We have ignored a few 4×4 vehicles, snowmobiles, and bikes. Despite their fun and useful appearance in the multiplayer, we couldn’t just let these vintage vehicles go unnoticed. Calling them vintage might be unfair because some of them are still in service. Both the United States and the Soviet Union played their parts in developing weapons that were a technological marvel in their own rights. Black Ops Cold War will fill in the gaps of its predecessor when it comes to teaching us about some historically accurate vehicles.
