The motorbike is an old Krasny Motory messenger motorbike repurposed by the Soviet Resistance as a fast attack vehicle. Hundreds of these were sitting mothballed in the company's warehouses after it went bankrupt as a direct result of the exhausting world war. Each vehicle has been modified significantly, including armored plates, more powerful engine and a reinforced side car with two weapon compartments: a Molotov cocktail storage and a collapsible mortar.

Game unit[]

The Mortar Cycle is a fast vehicle optimized for hit-and-run tactic. It is equipped with either a mortar that is good in long-range engagement and a supply of Molotov cocktails to handle building clearing. Its weapons are not recommended for a direct engagement against infantry and vehicles, and clearly not suited against aircraft. It is suggested that the Mortar Cycle is to be deployed in urban combat as it fits their weapon profile.

The Mortar Cycle can be assembled in a barracks, but requires a War Factory to supply parts and ammunition. The Barracks alone is only able to produce and not repair the Mortar Cycle. The Mortar Cycle is not an amphibious vehicle but is transportable from air.

The Mortar Cycle can support mass infantry attack by building clearing and pounding guard structure from afar before a group of infantry arrive. Direct engagement with heavy armor is not recommended as it mount only whimsical armor, being a motorcycle. This deficiency also make them a preferred target by infantry. But Spy's sniper or Shinobi's shuriken is not one shot effective against them (Natasha skill is on different case). The driver and gunner are supplied with basic survival kit that include gas mask, enhancing their survivability against chemical weapon.

Under fire[]

  • Hey! Cut it out!
  • They want to pick a fight!?
  • Getting a little close!
  • They've damaged the bike!


  • Depending on the Mortar Cycle's speed, if you destroy one, the driver and gunner may be sent flying out.
  • If a tracked vehicle runs over dead bodies of the driver and gunner from a destroyed Mortar Cycle, the remains will be stretched and snap back to their original position when that vehicle reaches a certain distance. Getting run over by slow wheeled vehicles, such as Prospectors, will also work.
  • The Mortar Cycle's Porta-Mortar in the concept art and rendering resembles a grenade launcher more than an actual mortar.
