When first introduced in [[ GTA III|GTA III]], it was visually very similar to the the [[Flatbed]] truck, differing only in its body colors and its modified bed design with additional fencing.

The Barracks OL comes with three types of bed configurations: uncovered, uncovered with framing, and fully covered; [[GTA San Andreas|GTA San Andreas' ]]Barracks, however, features only two bed configurations: covered with [[wp:tarpaulin|tarpaulin]], or covered with camouflage netting (revealing boxes on the bed). The [[GTA San Andreas]] and [[GTA Advance ]]renditions feature closed cabs, while all other renditions feature open cabs.

Although it is one of the heaviest vehicles in the games, it is faster than the much lighter Flatbed; due to its length and its two rear axles, however, it suffers from understeer at higher speeds. Its ramming power is impressive; it can easily penetrate a SWAT roadblock. The Barracks OL has all-wheel drive, but, because of its size and weight, it can easily get stuck in off-road terrain. Despite its size, the Barracks will explode if it collides with a [[Rhino]] tank, just as other vehicles do. The Barracks OL has an average top speed but the acceleration leaves much to be desired.

The HVY Barracks OL is a military truck featured in the following games:

The truck is absent in Grand Theft Auto IV as the military has been removed from the game.

Overview Edit

Design Edit

3D Universe Edit

Appearing on the streets only when the player achieves a 6-star wanted level, the Barracks OL is a military truck based on the M939 "5 ton" truck. When first introduced in GTA III, it was visually very similar to the Flatbed truck, differing only in its body colors and its modified bed design with additional fencing. Unlike the Flatbed, the Barracks OL underwent fewer modifications after GTA III, retaining its rugged, military-like design.

The Barracks OL comes with three types of bed configurations: uncovered, uncovered with framing, and fully covered; GTA San Andreas' Barracks, however, features only two bed configurations: covered with tarpaulin, or covered with camouflage netting (revealing boxes on the bed), and, although very rare (uncommon on the mobile version), an uncovered version that resembles a Flatbed. From GTA Vice City onwards, Vigilante missions can be activated from the Barracks OL. In GTA San Andreas, the Barracks even features a siren without strobe lights, which, like other sirens, will force traffic in front of the truck to move out of the way.

The GTA San Andreas and GTA Advance renditions feature closed cabs, while all other renditions feature open cabs. Despite the Barracks' huge size, it is only capable of carrying the driver and one passenger.


HD Universe Edit

The vehicle returns in GTA V with a new design and a new paint scheme, based on the Oshkosh MTVR, but with a bulkier design, a large bumper and a bullbar. Like SA and Advance renditions, it retains the closed cab and will come in only 1 bed configuration, consisting on roof frames and a big canvas on the upper side. The front cab appears to (like many other heavy duty vehicles) have some resemblance to the Securicar.

Obtaining may be difficult, due to the fact that military no longer chase players in streets, but once they are at Fort Zancudo. As the Rhino tanks now shoot at the player, it becomes a challenge. However, like some other military vehicles, can be purchased at the website.

Unlike GTA III era, it is capable of carrying the driver and a huge amount of 9 passengers, which in GTA Online, could be a useful ground transport. However, there are many disadvantages for them: Any crash over the rear section will eject and harm with the truck's weight and the fall, they will be exposed at a shootout and, the entire team will die with any explosive, considering that the Barracks is a large vehicle.

Performance Edit

Although it is one of the heaviest vehicles in the games, it is faster than the much lighter Flatbed; due to its length and its two rear axles, however, it suffers from understeer at higher speeds. Its ramming power is impressive; it can easily penetrate a SWAT roadblock. The Barracks OL has all-wheel drive, but, because of its size and weight, it can easily get stuck in off-road terrain. Despite its size, the Barracks will explode if it collides with a Rhino tank, just as other vehicles do. The Barracks OL has an average top speed but the acceleration leaves much to be desired.
