For this command to work (in MP) you need the appropriate markers in the mission. The markers are...
  • "respawn_vehicle_west"
  • "respawn_vehicle_east"
  • "respawn_vehicle_guerilla"
  • "respawn_vehicle_civilian"

Also, by default it will use respawnDelay from the description.ext as mentioned unless you specify

respawnVehicleDelay = x;

Where x is delay in seconds.

In Multiplayer the respawned vehicle remains local to the client who was the last driver of the vehicle or the client who was the leader of the last AI driver of the vehicle. If the vehicle has yet to be driven or the AI driver is local to the Server then the respawned vehicle will be local to the Server.
