Appearing on the streets only when the player achieves a 6-star [[Wanted Level in GTA III Era|wanted level]], the Barracks OL is a military truck based on the [[wp:M939|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.
   
== Overview ==
+
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), 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 vehicle returns in [[Grand Theft Auto V|GTA V]] with a new design and a new paint scheme, based on the [http://www.military-today.com/trucks/oshkosh_mtvr.htm Oshkosh MTVR], but with a bulkier design, a large bumper and a bullbar. Like ''GTA SA'' and ''GTA Advance'' renditions, it retains the closed cab and comes in only 1 bed configuration, consisting on roof frames and a big canvas on the upper side. The front cab appears (like many other heavy duty vehicles) to have some resemblance to the [[Securicar]]. This vehicle carries a spare tire behind the cab.
  +
  +
Obtaining it in the standard way may be difficult, due to the fact that military no longer chase at the protagonist/player in streets. 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, they can be purchased from the Warstock website.
  +
  +
Unlike the 3D Universe rendition, the Barracks is capable of carry the driver and 9 passengers, which in [[Grand Theft Auto Online|GTA Online]] can be a useful and deadly ground transport. However, there are many disadvantages for any rear bed occupants: Any crash over the rear section will eject and harm them with the truck's weight and the fall (depending of the crash), they will be exposed to a gunfire, and, considering the vehicle's size and speed, can be an easy target for any explosive weapon, especially [[RPG|RPGs]].

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.

Being heavier than before, the acceleration is still a problem when used as a getaway vehicle. However, it's extremely competent for [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Off-roading off-roading], thanks to the raised suspension and large wheels. Its natural force can become a threat to any light vehicle and small trucks, like the [[Mule]], and can withstand several crashes before the front axle is deformed. The only problem is that the cab doesn't offer much protection against gunfire, yet the overall vehicle can withstand several bullets before starts to smoking. Driving backwards, it can actually drive all the way over any car, just like a tank. A flat tire makes a minimal difference to handling.
* In GTA Vice City Stories, a bulletproof Barracks OL will appear in the mission [[Truck Stop]]. It's difficult to obtain and the truck won't be bulletproof anymore once [[Phil Cassidy]] has taken control of the truck, due to the health bar.
 
* There is a glitch on the Barracks with the camouflage netting in the PS2 version of GTA San Andreas, which is, if you press the select button to change the view, change it to the bumper view and hold the L2 & R2 buttons to look back, the netting will disappear and the only thing you will see is the bed of the truck. And if you press the button again to the full truck view the netting will return.
 
* The Barracks OL rendition of GTA LCS cannot be used for [[Vigilante Missions]], despite it's being used by the [[Army]]. Also, the Barracks OL has a radio, which is the only kind in GTA LCS.
 
* In GTA 3, a bulletproof Barracks OL appears on the mission [[Arms Shortage]]. It is difficult to obtain because there are on other things to block off the fire from the [[Columbian Cartel|cartel]], and is normal once the mission is over. However, you can park it in front of Phil and attempt to push the [[Rhino]] to your garage.
 
* The Barracks OL is the first vehicle seen in GTA Vice City Stories, it appears in the first game cutscene when it's shown Vic entering in Fort Baxter with it therefore also being the first chronologically seen in the [[3D Universe]]. 
 
* In [[GTA VCS]] during a mission [[Skywolf]], you use a [[Hunter]] to fly through checkpoints and shoot drones, but the drones are Barracks OL's, but with a different design then the normal ones you see in [[Fort Baxter Air Base|Fort Baxter]]. Also, if you try to get in one, the doors are locked, making it an interesting mystery. Perhaps these were [[Beta Vehicles|beta vehicles]].

"Hope you've got a big garage. A 6-wheel army personnel truck with reinforced frame and suspension, the Barracks is ideal for transporting armed troops and car-pooling obese American kids. Built by the US in the 1980s, sold to Iraq in the 1990s, captured from the Iraqis by Americans in the 2000s, the Barracks has a complex bloodline that took us days to get off the seats."

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

In GTA V, it is manufactured by HVY.

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 in the 3D era 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 GTA SA and GTA Advance renditions, it retains the closed cab and comes in only 1 bed configuration, consisting on roof frames and a big canvas on the upper side. The front cab appears (like many other heavy duty vehicles) to have some resemblance to the Securicar. This vehicle carries a spare tire behind the cab.

Obtaining it in the standard way may be difficult, due to the fact that military no longer chase at the protagonist/player in streets. 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, they can be purchased from the Warstock website.

Unlike the 3D Universe rendition, the Barracks is capable of carry the driver and 9 passengers, which in GTA Online can be a useful and deadly ground transport. However, there are many disadvantages for any rear bed occupants: Any crash over the rear section will eject and harm them with the truck's weight and the fall (depending of the crash), they will be exposed to a gunfire, and, considering the vehicle's size and speed, can be an easy target for any explosive weapon, especially RPGs.

Variants Edit

  • Barracks Semi - semi-truck variant (replaces the passenger bed with a trailer hitch)
  • A second variant appears in the Heists Update for GTA Online. It distinguishes from the first one having a much shorter roof canvas. The rear area lacks the extra canvas that is seen waving with the wind and when the truck is moving. Other than that, the truck is still the same.

LocationsEdit

GTA IIIEdit

GTA Vice CityEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

GTA Liberty City StoriesEdit

GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

GTA Advance Edit

  • Available in Fort Staunton army base.

GTA VEdit

  • Can be bought for $450,000 from Warstock Cache & Carry. Sometimes, it will appear in a black, grey or a red body. Depending on the character, one of these colors may be frequent (i.e. Michael's Barracks will spawn in red color most of the time).
  • Found at Fort Zancudo. Barracks OL may spawn to chase the player when inside the base.
  • Can spawn outside Fort Zancudo when the player approaches an entrance before turning back to the highway.
  • Can be acquired after completing Trevor Philips's fourth Rampage in front of Fort Zancudo, assuming if there is one left over that wasn't destroyed. Be careful with the oncoming wanted level (though it not always happens).

GTA Online Edit

Trivia Edit

GTA Liberty City StoriesEdit

  • The Barracks OL rendition of GTA LCS cannot be used for Vigilante Missions, despite its use by the Army. Also, the Barracks OL has a radio, which is the only kind in GTA LCS.

GTA San AndreasEdit

  • Boxes found on partially covered Barracks in GTA San Andreas appear to be labeled as containing ammunition, but are further labeled humorously with warnings not to eat the boxes' contents ("Do Not Eat!").
  • Despite carrying ammunition in GTA San Andreas (as mentioned above), the player will not receive any weapons upon entry.
  • There is a graphical glitch on the Barracks with the camouflage netting in the PS2 version of GTA San Andreas, whereby if you press the select button to change the view, change it to the bumper view and hold the L2 & R2 buttons to look back, the netting will disappear and the only thing you will see is the bed of the truck. And if you press the button again to the full truck view the netting will return.

GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

  • In GTA Vice City Stories, a bulletproof Barracks OL will appear in the mission Truck Stop. It's difficult to obtain and the truck won't be bulletproof anymore once Phil Cassidy has taken control of the truck, due to the health bar.
  • The Barracks OL is the first vehicle seen in GTA Vice City Stories, it appears in the first game cutscene when it's shown Vic entering Fort Baxter with it therefore also being the first chronologically seen in the 3D Universe
  • In GTA VCS during the mission Skywolf, you use a Hunter to fly through checkpoints and shoot drones. The drones are actually Barracks OL's, but with a different design then the normal ones you see in Fort Baxter and have ammo crates in the back. They have different ID numbers than the regular Barracks OL.
  • Much like its Liberty City Stories counterpart, the Barracks OL has a radio instead of a dispatcher.

GTA VEdit

  • The Barracks appears only with a roof canvas, while the Beta full cover variant is only seen at Warstock Cache & Carry, and the uncovered variant is possibly a bug/hack variant, something like the WC&C variant of the Rhino.
  • In GTA V, sticking the gun barrel of a Rhino into the back of the Barracks and raising it would cause both the Barracks and the tank to launch several hundred feet into the air. However, this has been patched.
  • The black and red variants are very rare, and may spawn only if the player purchases one.
  • Shooting the roof canvas with any weapon can damage the vehicle itself.

GTA Online Edit

  • The second variant along with the Lost Slamvan and the second variant of the Trashmaster are the only DLC vehicles that are not available for purchase.
  • The Barracks without a canvas remains unobtainable in-game, however, the player can use it by setting the Respawn vehicle as it in a GTA Capture made in the Creator.
