This entity is used in combination with emp_vehicle_spawner to give mappers the ability to spawn vehicles on demand. A vehicle configuration is stored in this entity as a preset for a vehicle to be spawned at a later point.


  • The maximum number of armor plates per side is 6
  • Each chassis has its own version of each engine, and giving a jeep engine to a heavy tank may produce undesired performance loss.
  • You may place up to 8 weapons per vehicle.
  • This does not abide by weight or chassis restrictions, so absurd configurations are possible.
  • You have to have the weapons/armor/engine the tanks use researched or the game will crash!
