While players are wading through Battlefield 5 Tides of War Chapter 3: Trial By Fire, it seems DICE has already planted the seeds of some of the game’s content set to come in Chapter 5 given Chapter 4 focuses on Greece.

Spotted by reliable dataminer temporyal, there are 14 new Battlefield 5 upcoming vehicles included in the game files, and they run the gamut from ground, air, and sea vehicles! Check out the list below.
We’re going to cover a variety of U.S. and Japanese equipment so therefore please be aware that these vehicles won’t be available in the next weeks or months and are probably scheduled for Tides of War: Chapter 5 (“Awakening the Giant”).
Remember: This is not a wishlist – all vehicle names (or abbreviations to be exact) came with the latest patch into the game files.
Thank you for your support!
M4A3 Sherman (Medium Tank)
“The M4 Sherman, officially Medium Tank, M4, was the most widely used medium tank by the United States and Western Allies in World War II. The M4 Sherman tank was produced in several variants and it was also the basis for a number of related vehicles. The M4A3 was the preferred US Army vehicle.” (Wikipedia)
Note: Since I’ve spotted Calliope Rockets linked to the Sherman I guess it’s safe to say that we will see a T34 Calliope variant or a specialization in the future.
Type 97 Chi-Ha (Medium Tank)
“The Type 97 Chi-Ha was a medium tank used by the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Battles of Khalkhin Gol against the Soviet Union, and the Second World War. It was the most widely produced Japanese medium tank of World War II.” (Wikipedia)
Type 3 Chi-Nu (Medium Tank)
“Type 3 Medium Tank Chi-Nu (“Imperial Year 2603 Medium tank Model 10″) was a medium tank of the Imperial Japanese Army in World War II. Like the Type 1 Chi-He, this tank was an improved version of the Type 97 Chi-Ha. It incorporated a Type 3 75 mm tank gun, one of the largest Japanese tank guns during the war.” (Wikipedia)
“The Willys MB and the Ford GPW, commonly known as Jeep or jeep, are off-road capable, light, military utility vehicles that were manufactured during World War II (from 1941 to 1945) for the Allied forces.” (Wikipedia)
“A staff car is a vehicle used by a senior military officer, and is part of their country’s white fleet.Staff cars are often painted in camouflage colours, or plain black. In the U.S., Brazil and other American countries the frequent colour is flat olive-drab.” (Wikipedia)
Kurogane Type 95
“The Type 95 was a Japanese scout car built by Tokyu Kurogane Industries, and was used during the war with China and World War II in the East. Between 1936 and 1944 approximately 4,700 were built. It was the only completely Japanese designed reconnaissance car ever used by the Imperial Japanese Army, which tended to use civilian cars.” (Wikipedia)
Vought F4U Corsair
“The Corsair was designed and operated as a carrier-based aircraft, and entered service in large numbers with the U.S. Navy in late 1944 and early 1945. Some Japanese pilots regarded it as the most formidable American fighter of World War II, and its naval aviators achieved an 11:1 kill ratio.” (Wikipedia)
Mitsubishi A6M Zero
“The Mitsubishi A6M “Zero” is a long-range fighter aircraft formerly manufactured by Mitsubishi Aircraft Company and operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy from 1940 to 1945. The Zero is considered to have been the most capable carrier-based fighter in the world when it was introduced early in World War II, combining excellent maneuverability and very long range.” (Wikipedia)
Type 2 Ka-Mi
“The Special Type 2 Launch Ka-Mi was the first amphibious tank of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). The Type 2 Ka-Mi was based on the Imperial Japanese Army’s Type 95 Ha-Go light tank with major modifications.” (Wikipedia)
Landing Vehicle Tracked
“The Landing Vehicle, Tracked (LVT) is an amphibious warfare vehicle and amphibious landing craft, introduced by the United States Navy. Originally intended solely as cargo carriers for ship to shore operations, they evolved into assault troop and fire support vehicles.” (Wikipedia)
“A PT boat (short for patrol torpedo boat) was a torpedo-armed fast attack vessel (MTB) used by the United States Navy in World War II. It was small, fast, and inexpensive to build, valued for its maneuverability and speed but hampered at the beginning of the war by ineffective torpedoes, limited armament, and comparatively fragile construction that limited some of the variants to coastal waters.” (Wikipedia)
“The landing craft, vehicle, personnel (LCVP) or Higgins boat was a landing craft used extensively in amphibious landings in World War II. The craft was designed by Andrew Higgins based on boats made for operating in swamps and marshes.” (Wikipedia)
“Submarine warfare in the Battle of the Atlantic led to casualties among warships and merchant ships. In the military, inflatable boats were used to transport torpedoes and other cargo. They also helped troops land in shallow water, and their compact size made overland transport possible.” (Wikipedia)
Note: I have no idea what kind of “Dinghy” they are going to implement…
Note: I am not sure about this “Motor Torpedo Boat”. There is a german T1 torpedo boat (1935 Type) but you can also find Japanese boats with this class identifier. I guess it will be the latter since we’re talking almost exclusively about U.S. and Japanese vehicles in this patch.
- As some of you might know there are still a few unreleased (and unfinished) british and german tanks in the game files (Bishop, Marder, Grille…) but I’ve no idea when Dice is going to implement them into the game.
- I know a lot of you care about about vehicle customization but unfortunately nothing has changed since my last postregarding this topic.
Don’t forget, there’s no guarantee that all these vehicles will make it into the game, so make sure to not take everything as fact just yet.
Earlier today, we also posted a look at the French soldier skins that are also in the game files, though it’s unsure whether when these will see the light of day.
