The Maddox FVA 45 is an armed patrol buggy in Just Cause 2.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Maddox FVA 45 is based on a Chenowth DPV (Desert Patrol Vehicle). Most of them have a Mounted Gun, but some of the ones that spawn in Military bases in Panau are unarmed. The unarmed ones still have a turret ring.

It usually spawns in Ular Boys yellow, military beige, or military green. One is provided for a race in red.

This is a very odd vehicle, because all of them have an Ular Boys logo painted on the side, indicating that even the ones that spawn in military bases belong to the Ular Boys (probably stolen by the military), but if you use the horn, instead of a horn you hear the Panau Military siren. This applies to all of them.

The frame of the front window is right in front of the driver's face, completely blocking the view directly ahead. This would be highly impractical to drive, but this is simply ignored in the game.

Performance[edit | edit source]

The Maddox FVA 45 has excellent handling, make it a superb choice for offroad use. Its small form factor helps boost its not-inconsiderable speed and makes it perhaps the most suitable vehicle for jungle use. Acceleration and speed are good, although not sufficient to outpace military vehicles.

Locations[edit | edit source]

All of them have the Ular logo on the sides.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There's a chance that this car was originally meant to have 3 front windows. All identical in shape, but the ones on the edges would have been upside down. That would have made the windows resemble the Valanx, one of the proposals for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle project. That car is meant to have easily replacable bullet proof windows.
  • This is one of only three green-marked vehicles that will give you pre-heat, the others being the Marten Storm III and the Dalton N90.
  • Even though there is no physical display of a siren compared to the Wilforce type jeeps, you can keep the sirens on even after exiting the vehicle by going into a stunt position and jumping off. This works with every vehicle in Just Cause 2 equipped with a siren.

Glitches[edit | edit source]

Main article: Just Cause 2 Vehicle glitches.

  • The suspension can sometimes spawn much higher than it should. Touching, or entering the car will fix this.
  • The one at Pulau Dayang Terlena can sometimes be found with no wheels. You can still drive it and if Rico gets in it, the wheels do not reappear. If you shoot the tire, it will pop. As a result, a random broken tire will appear out of nowhere.
