"Built on the M5 APC chassis, this Heavy Assault Vehicle still houses 4 Helldivers but is more heavily armed. Sporting a 90mm main cannon and two smaller support weapons, it is far better equipped to face more heavily armored enemies." - Armory Description
Compared to the faster, more nimble M5 APC, the M5-32 HAV is more heavily armed and armored, at rank 3 the front is more durable than TD-110 Bastion
The sponson-mounted machine guns have a magazine capacity of 750 rounds each (1000 when upgraded to Mk2); the turret holds enough ammunition for 25 main cannon shots (50 when upgraded to Mk2).
Compared to the Helldiver-portable MG-94, vehicle-mounted machine guns have a 50% faster rate of fire.
The HAV's cannon can destroy mission targets (Cyborg AA Guns, Bug Nests or Illuminate Beacons), thus an HAV is a viable alternative to the standard-issue NUX‑223 Hellbomb, especially if the mission has several target-destruction objectives.
Vehicles and Exosuits will take a small amount of damage while passing through a deployed Anti-Personnel Barrier. The M5-32 HAV (when upgraded to Mk3) and the TD-110 Bastion are immune to this, however.
Vehicles are larger than Hellpods, requiring more space to deploy. They can land anywhere within a fairly wide radius of the beacon that called it in. In rough terrain, this can lead to the vehicle being deployed on top of unsuspecting Helldivers.
When calling in multiple stratagems, it is advisable to deploy any vehicles only after all equipment-bearing Hellpods have arrived. This is because Hellpods will instantly destroy any vehicle they land on.
