The ARAV features a machine gun mounted on a turret. The turreted VKM 750 has unlimited ammunition, as well as a cooldown similar to that of the Belt fedCordite. If it's fired for too long the gun will overheat and temporarily shut down. Another mechanic of the turret is durability; if the turret is low on durability, black smoke will arise from it; if it has lost all durability, it will simply catch fire and will be unavaible to use.
Players in the passenger side can also lean at will outside of the ARAV and fire at enemies.
