The M3S, previously known as the V3S, is a vehicle in DayZ. It was the first functional vehicle to be implemented in the game during the Alpha stage of development back in late 2014. It was reworked and added back to the game in the 1.10 update.

Performance[edit | edit source]

The M3S is the slowest vehicle in DayZ. It has a maximum speed of around 50 kph when driving on flat ground or down a slight hill.

Variants[edit | edit source]

M3S Covered[edit | edit source]

This variant has a material cover over the cargo area. It is the first M3S variant to be reintroduced in v1.10 on the new vehicle system.

Removed Variants[edit | edit source]

M3S Chassis[edit | edit source]

This variant lacks the cargo area of the other variants, and was used for basic transportation and simple storage. It was removed in 0.63 awaiting reimplementation.

M3S Cargo[edit | edit source]

This variant has a dedicated cargo area and is favoured for its increased cargo capacity, but is slower due to its extra weight.

Vehicle Parts[edit | edit source]

The following 'Engine' and 'Chassis' parts are necessary for an operational M3S:

The 'Body' parts are optional, but recommended for the safety of vehicle occupants:

2x M3S Wheels can be stored in the spare wheel compartments on the rear of the cabin. The compartment holders need to be opened to add the wheels, however.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The M3S was first implemented in v0.51.125720 on 3rd December 2014, as the V3S. It was removed in v0.63 for reimplementation on new systems, and a new Covered variant was first reintroduced in v1.10 Experimental on 29th October 2020.
  • The M3S is based on the real-world Praga V3S, which entered service with the Czech armed forces in 1953 and remained in service until the early 2000s. It was also released in the civilian market to wide success.
  • Prior to 0.57, it was possible to drive the truck underwater.
  • A Command/Radio van variant was teased and is in the game's files, but was never implemented. Wrecks of this model are found throughout the game.
