Storage & Transport

The BMS - Grouper cannot be stored in a Storage Depot, Seaport or Storage Ship.

It cannot be packaged or transported by another vehicle. As such, it must be driven to its destination, regardless of where it is.


Motorboats are very fast naval vehicles, but they are also very fragile, and can be quickly destroyed by enemy fire. It has a limited ability to move on wet sand, but it can still run aground and become stuck on other surfaces like dry sand under certain circumstances. Ideally, running aground should not be the Driver's main priority, though they might have to if the landing requires it.

Motorboats are typically used for small partisan raiding, but can also be used in large scale naval invasions when used in large numbers (though this approach is not as beneficially if the invasion group requires armored vehicles). Motorboats are cheaper and more flexible than Bargees in terms of construction, making them the ideal choice for small coastal raids, where large scale vehicles are not required.

One of the major downsides of the motorboat is its lack of versatility in terms of equipment, as the passengers are only able to use their secondary firearms, while soldiers on barges are able to use nearly all equipment, including thrown explosive items like Anti-Tank Sticky Bombs.
