The Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) is a reconnaissance tool available in the multiplayer portion of Battlefield 3. The gadget is unlocked once the player has earned 45,000 xp within the Recon class. Players control the MAV remotely, flying it around enemy territory to reveal locations of soldiers & equipment. The MAV is also capable of killing soldiers by ramming into them at high speeds.
The operator of the MAV can manually spot enemies from the air (by hitting the spot button while aimed at enemies), while the unit itself acts as a motion sensor, lighting up nearby soldiers and vehicles on the mini-map automatically. It also has the ability to "jam" certain enemy gadgets, instantly destroying them.
Jammable enemy gadgets:
- Radio Beacon
- EOD Bot
*The MAV is modeled after the US Navy's Honeywell RQ-16 T-Hawk.
