== Overview ==
The BMW R75 Motorcycle is a BMW with an MG42 machine gun fixed to the sidecar. This vehicle is fielded extensively by the [[Wehrmacht]] because of its low cost and high speed. It is an effective vehicle at the early stage of the battle. It has good speed and mobility even in rough terrain. Its nimble size also allows it to move into tight spaces such as between buildings. Armed with an MG42 light machine gun, it is used as a raiding unit in the early stage of the battle.The motorcycle is a very useful addition to Axis arsenal.

The Motorcycle's main combat role is hunting down [[Sniper (American)|snipers]] because they detect hidden units in a large radius, are fast and the MG42 on the Motorcycle does extra damage to them. Because of their speed and mobility, they are also good for flanking [[M2 60mm Mortar Team|60mm mortar teams]]. Though they can never fully replace infantry(at the very least because they can't capture strategic points), the motorcycles can also be used in regular combat. The enemy infantry will always prioritize the Motorcycle over other targets and it can be used to push enemy out of cover.

Use it to save flanked MG42s from riflemen, kill snipers, support volksgrenadiers in combat or hunt down enemy engineers capturing strategic points. Wehrmacht players may use such groups to raid strategic points and take on incoming enemy infantry units. Throughout the game it can also serve as a light reconnaissance unit for identifying enemy strategic location and a spotter for artillery unit.

It is one of the poorest vehicles in terms of armour protection. Even small arms fire can badly damage it. Conventional light AT weapons such as Anti-Tank Recoilless Rifles, Bazookas, and PIATs can destroy it quickly with minimal casualties. A [[M1917 Browning Heavy Machine Gun Team|Browning 30. cal MG team]] can wipe out a BMW R75 Motorcycle in seconds if the motorbike doesn't flank it quickly. The motorbike is extremely vulnerable to anti-tank and tank fire. Most of these motorcycles will be replaced by better armed and armored vehicle such as [[SdKfz 251 Half-track]] and [[SdKfz 234 Armoured Car]] during Tier 2 and 3. They are rarely seen and deployed during Tier 4.
