Similar to previous games, in Just Cause 4, the damage and armor/durability of vehicles and [[Vehicle mounted weapons|their weapons]] are somewhat equalised. Here are a few examples: All unarmored vehicles can survive more or less the exact same amount of damage before being destroyed. Armored vehicles- whether lightly armored APCs, slightly armored helicopters and heavily armored tanks all are about just as durable: able to survive two explosions before the third blowds them up, or eventually blow up from a long continuous period of machine gun fire. Although there are small differences in vehicles' durability/armor (such as a [[Warchief Assault Tank]] (heavy tank) being just a little more durable than a [[Pointman Scout Tank]] (light tank) which is slightly more armored than a [[Reptile AAV]] or [[Bloodhound Siege Heli]]), these differences are too subtle to notice without really trying. In reality, APCs and armored Attack Helicopters most likely cannot survive one cannon round, while tanks can survive a few. For one reason or another, Just Cause 4 decides to make all armored vehicles have the same armor, which is considerably unrealistic. A Longbow Canon Truck deals only a little more damage than a standard canon round, despite the Longbow having a massive artillery gun. All explosions are equalized as well. However, different types of bullets fired from different handheld guns have different damage output, probably because the player relies more on handheld small-arms.

This article is a list of all known vehicles in Just Cause 4.

Just Cause 4 has been released so all vehicles are currently known. Vehicle pages for individual vehicles will be created soon. This article will eventually be moved to Category:Just Cause 4 Vehicles, similar to Category:Just Cause 3 Vehicles.

Many are listed in supply drop.

Improvements over previous games

Aerodynamics

One of the new vehicular features in Just Cause 4 is aerodynamics. Developers explained in some promotional interviews that different vehicles with different aerodynamical properties will be able to withstand wind and tornadoes more than others.

Returning vehicles

Previous Just Causes had a few vehicles that seemed to return, but they had different names and only resembled enough to count as spiritual successors. Examples: Pocumtuck Nomad, Mosca 125 Performance/Mosca 125 Rallye, the various MV types.

There can be no doubt that several vehicle models were reused from JC3 with only minimal changes, but they do not have the same names.

Ammunition

Worthy of significant note is the fact that all vehicle mounted weapons have limited ammunition. Approximate examples from gameplay videos:

  • A helicopter can have 20 missiles and 1000 heavy MG rounds. This later turned out to be the Bloodhound Siege Heli with 100 missiles and 1000 MG rounds.
  • The light tank has something around 300 main gun shells and 750 heavy MG rounds. This later turned out to be the Warchief Assault Tank with the same armament, but definitely a main battle tank in lieu of a "light" tank.
  • A jet can come equipped with 60 bombs and 1600 MG rounds. This later turned out to be the Thunderhead Bomber Jet.

There only exception is unlimited ammunition during missions. For example, during Operation Thunderbarge, the Thunderbarge comes with unlimited mortar rounds. Thunderbarge: Ion Coil Delivery features an APC with infinite MG ammunition.

Radio

Another thing to note is that all vehicles have a radio. The radio has multiple music stations and a talk station Solís Hoy that expands the lore and reports news.

Equalization

Similar to previous games, in Just Cause 4, the damage and armor/durability of vehicles and their weapons are somewhat equalised. Here are a few examples: All unarmored vehicles can survive more or less the exact same amount of damage before being destroyed. Armored vehicles- whether lightly armored APCs, slightly armored helicopters and heavily armored tanks all are about just as durable: able to survive two explosions before the third blowds them up, or eventually blow up from a long continuous period of machine gun fire. Although there are small differences in vehicles' durability/armor (such as a Warchief Assault Tank (heavy tank) being just a little more durable than a Pointman Scout Tank (light tank) which is slightly more armored than a Reptile AAV or Bloodhound Siege Heli), these differences are too subtle to notice without really trying. In reality, APCs and armored Attack Helicopters most likely cannot survive one cannon round, while tanks can survive multiple. For one reason or another, Just Cause 4 decides to make all armored vehicles have the same armor, which is considerably unrealistic. A Longbow Canon Truck deals only a little more damage than a standard canon round, despite the Longbow having a massive artillery gun. All explosions are equalized as well. However, different types of bullets fired from different handheld guns have different damage output, probably because the player relies more on handheld small-arms.

Notes about the below lists

  • All confirmed vehicle names have bold text names. Many of the the below names were first reported from pre-launch gameplay videos, where they had different names. These became Cut game content from Just Cause 4 because the vehicles were renamed before game launch. Do not remove these. They will be sorted into the cut content article.
  • Until we have an article for each vehicle, all descriptions should ideally be detailed enough to recognize the described vehicle from the gallery below. Please do not add duplicates into the list, as they are hard enough to tell apart with entries like "another sports car", or "another SUV".
  • The supply drop may seem like the same thing, making one list redundant, but it does not include all vehicles (or their versions). This article is meant to list everything.
  • According to one of the official videos, there's a total of 104 vehicles available to be dropped. However, there are usually several unique versions of vehicles, so counting those, the number of vehicles in the game could be significantly bigger. Last counted, there was 117 listed below here. If Army of Chaos versions of Black Hand vehicles are to be counted separately, then there could be about maybe 140.

Land vehicles

Civilian cars

All motorcycles and similar things

Civilian special-purpose vehicles

Military ground vehicles

Sea vehicles

  • Jet ski, similar to the Stria PW 220 R-GT.
  • Fishing boat - Identical to the Whaleshark.
  • Dondequiera Fanboat - Boat with a flat bottom and a fan engine. (Pushes itself with an aircraft propeller.) There's 2 versions of it.
  • Thunderbarge - It has the same kind of a small mast as the storm chaser truck. The mast is tipped with a small white ball that shoots lightning out of it. Judging by the name, it might be the same as above. It is built in a mission and is a modified Stormwater patrol boat. It is used to destroy Zona dos. It has a special attack which involves an ion coil on the boat being struck by lightning. After the ion coil is struck the next shot from the boats mortar will cause a small explosion, as if lightning had struck the target.
  • Conquistador Warship (also known as "PA-31 Warship") - Military ship similar to the Corvette.
  • Stormwater Patrol Boat - Patrol boat similar to the CS Powerrun 77.
  • Daggershark Jetboat - Silhouette looks like a normal patrol boat of sorts.
  • Spearhead Transport - Large amphibious landing ship.
  • Barco Roro Ferry - Civilian ferry.
  • Mugello Pescespada SX - Speedboat, similar to the Pescespada SS. Possibly unlocked when completing the "Lago Hatun boat stunt".
    • Rigged Pescespada SX - Is equipped with a bomb. Possibly unlocked when securing the Picos Helados region.
  • Kerner Brise 42 - Seems the same as Brise 32.
  • Dame de la Mer yacht - Similar to the Dame de la Mer 99.
    • Rigged Dame de la Mer - Is equipped with a bomb.

Aerial vehicles

Helicopters

  • Utility Helicopter / Emsavion Utiliy heli / Dracon 22LR - Civilian helicopter sharing its model with the Eubus Eagle.
  • Emsavion News heli - Seems identical to the above, but has a camera ball under the nose.
  • Dropzone Chopper - Looks similar to the CS Comet, but is bigger and it has a bed to allow vehicles and personnel inside the helicopter.
  • Firebrand Scout Chopper - Attack helicopter similar in appearance to the AH-1 Cobra with it's long tail boom and landing skids instead of wheeled landing gear. It is similar to the Sivirkin 15 Havoc.
  • Spectre Attack Heli / Spectre Attack Helicopter - Another attack helicopter this time looking almost identical to the CS Navajo but with a different cockpit canopy.
  • Próspero Bloodhound / Bloodhound Siege Heli - Attack helicopter seen in game art and one of two gameplay videos that appears to be a Mi-24 Hind fuselage and cockpit with the coaxial rotors from a Kamov Ka-50/52 Crocodile/Black Shark. In the gameplay, it has an armament of missiles and machine guns.
  • Próspero-Aero Sky Crane / Próspero Sky Crane - Skycrane-like helicopters. It uses a magnet instead of a hook. This helicopter is by far the most powerful helicopter in the Just Cause game series, as it can easily lift the EM-979 jet.
  • Emsavion Float Heli - Small helicopter on floats, possibly the Urga Racek.

Fixed-wing aircraft

  • Emsavion Thunderhead / Prospero Thunderhead / Thunderhead Bomber Jet - Twin-engine variable sweep wing fighter jet similar in appearance to the F-14 Tomcat and Panavia Tornado. It is currently armed with 60 "carpet bomb" and 1600 "machine gun" ammunition.
  • Fellhawk Jet Fighter - Fighter aircraft similar to an F-16 Fighting Falcon with a single engine and single vertical stabilizer setup, although it has different intakes and a cockpit almost reminiscent of a Sukhoi Su-27 or MiG-29. Just like with all other armed vehicles in the game (apart from a select few), ammunition is limited, but the ammunition counter seems to show the number of shots available to fire. This plane always fires multiple small rockets at the same time.
  • SkyCastle Cargo Jet / Próspero Jet Transporter - Closely resembles the U41 Ptakojester. You must secure the region Acantilados to acquire this aircraft for the supply drop. For some very strange reason, the identifying code on the side is the same designation as the Rebellion U41 Ptakojester.
  • Single-engined seaplane that appears similar to the De Havilland Turbo Beaver and Otter aircraft. Interestingly it has the same registration seen on the Urga U17 Akrobat in Just Cause 3.
  • Emsavion Cropduster - Small twin-engined propeller aircraft that closely resembles the Urga U17 Akrobat, although strangely it does not seem to be equipped for agricultural use. In real life most agricultural aircraft are specially built single engine propeller designs.
  • EM-979 Airliner - a conventional commercial narrowbody airliner similar to the Aeroliner 474, taking design influences from the Airbus A321 and Irkut MC-21, with a cockpit resembling an upsized version of what's seen on the Mitsubishi MRJ.
  • PA Microfighter - Jet fighter that is presumably similar to the stealth Microjet, though lacking in stealth. It also has variable sweep wings. It's armed with a "machine gun" that has 1600 of ammunition. It can also perform an "AR scan".
  • Black Hand Stealth Micro Jet / Stealth Microfighter - A variant of the PA Microfighter. It can turn invisible and can't be detected by SAMs and enemies. It can only be obtained if one pre-ordered the digital deluxe or gold edition of Just Cause 4.
  • EM-909 Private Jet - Engines near the rear and a T-tail, similar in design to the Cassius 192. This is encountered at most civilian Airports in Solís.
  • Something resembling a DC-3.
  • Emsavion Floatplane - Vehicle resembling the Stria Ghibli 3 is making a return, as seen in NerdCubed's third video on Just Cause 4.

Others

  • Twin-rotor drone fired from a gun to protect some kind of Black Hand "elite" soldiers.
  • Larger drone, this time about the size of a car or bigger but still with two rotors.
  • Smaller drones with their rotors in an almost vertical position, assuming they are rotors.
  • Ultralight - Microlight-type aircraft powered by a fan.
  • Surveillance Airship - Large motorized blimp. It can be controlled as a vehicle, but just like the Stria Switzo Propaganda, it has to be destroyed as a part of settlement completion.
  • Emsavion Airship - Civilian version of the airship. Both airships share this name.
  • Trains and railroads in Solís.
  • Cable cars make a return at some Black Hand bases.
