The [[United States of America|United States]] '''military''' is an armed force featured in every games of the ''[[Grand Theft Auto]]'' series, except ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' and its [[Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City|episodes]].
   
The '''military''' is featured in [[GTA 2]], [[GTA III]], [[GTA Vice City]], [[GTA San Andreas]], [[GTA Chinatown Wars]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. In [[Grand Theft Auto|GTA]] games are the armed forces of the [[USA]], comprising mostly of the Army, but also with air and naval bases. The army themselves don't appear in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], because it enhances realism - the army would not be sent to kill one person, and because the ''Posse Comitatus'' Act prohibits the use of federal military personnel and units of the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress[http://usacac.army.mil/cac2/CALL/docs/10-16/ch_11.asp]. The army is replaced somewhat by [[NOOSE]]. The military is also important in many missions throughout the series, such as [[Sir, Yes Sir!]], [[Black Project]], [[Green Goo]], [[Up, Up and Away!]], [[Vertical Bird]], [[Robbing Uncle Sam]] and [[Over the Top]].

==Description==
  +
As implied, they are the armed forces of the United States of America, comprising mostly of the army, but also with air and naval bases. The army themselves doesn't appear in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' because it enhances realism; the army would not be sent to arrest one person and because the [[wp:Posse Comitatus Act|Posse Comitatus Act]] prohibits the use of federal military personnel and units of the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress[http://usacac.army.mil/cac2/CALL/docs/10-16/ch_11.asp]. The army is replaced somewhat by [[NOOSE]]. However, the military reappears in GTA V and GTA Online, but it is no longer considered as law enforcement officers.

After getting a [[Wanted Level in GTA 2|six star wanted level]] the military replace the police. [[Pedestrians]] disappear and normal cars become a rare sight. The soldiers in [[GTA 2]] are armed with machine guns and shots can kill the player and destroy cars. The military use different vehicles much as the [[Barracks OL]] and the [[Rhino]]. The military has its base in residential district but the base is totally inaccessible, but there is a small base in the industrial district to which the mission can be accessed at [[Army Base Alert!]].

After getting a [[Wanted Level in GTA 2|six star wanted level]], the military will replace the police. [[Pedestrians]] disappear and normal cars become a rare sight. The soldiers in [[GTA 2]] are armed with machine guns and can easily kill [[Claude Speed]] and destroy cars. The military uses different vehicles such as [[Pacifier]]s, [[Land Roamer]]s and a [[Tank]]. The military has its base in the [[Residential District]] but the base is inaccessible. However, there is a small base in the [[Industrial District]] in which it can be accessed during the mission [[Army Base Alert!]].

After the player gains [[Wanted Level in GTA III Era |six stars]] in a [[GTA III Era]] game, the army will begin to chase the player. On the ground, two military vehicles are used to kill the player; the [[Barracks OL]], which is used for troop transport, and the [[Rhino]] tank. The soldiers themselves are always well armed with weapons that will often make short work of the player and most vehicles.

Members of the military behave as a gang in Vice City despite not really being one and will attack the player if spotted on military territory, unless in a Cop uniform. They will also set up roadblocks comprised of the Barracks OL with soldiers armed with M16's in GTA III, M4's (in Fort Baxter Air Base) and MP5's (during a 6-star wanted level), and M4 Carbines in every other [[GTA III Era]] game. These aren't as lethal as those of the [[Federal Bureau of Investigation|FBI]] since there could be two FBI vehicles taking up one road with at least eight agents. But seeing as how the Barracks takes up the space of one road they can be broken through although the [[MP5]]s still pose an extreme threat.

A strange thing is that soldiers in the [[Fort Baxter Air Base]] never participate in law enforcement activity; if the player is wearing a police uniform or army fatigues and enters the base with a wanted level; only the law enforcement officers that enter from outside will try killing the player.

In [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], after gaining six stars, the Rhino and occasionally on-foot infantry will appear. Soldiers are armed with [[AK-47]]s at all times. While encountering an occupied Rhino, the player cannot [[carjack|hijack]] the occupied Rhino. However, there are two ways the Rhino will react depending if the player is on foot or in a vehicle. If the player is in a vehicle, the Rhino will immediately fire at the player's vehicle, setting it aflame (but not blowing it up, allowing the player to [[Bail Out|bail out]] and save his or her life). However, if the player is on foot, the Rhino will reluctantly fire, giving the player ample time to escape. The very slow speed of the Rhino makes it easy for the player to outrun it on foot. The Rhino will eventually fire at the player if the player stays in range on foot for too long. A direct hit usually kills the player unless the player has full health and full armour, but will reduce the health to roughly 25% and armour to 0%. The same goes for the [[Destroyer]] when the player enters the water.
  +
  +
In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the military are present in [[Fort Zancudo]] outside of missions. If the player loiters around one of the gates entering the base, a guard will approach the protagonist and demand he leaves the area. If the player stays still, the guard will raise his assault rifle and demand once more that the player leaves. If the player still doesn't comply, the guard will open fire. If the player enters the base, the alarm will sound and soldiers will fire at the player on foot. In cars or trucks, they will continually ram the player if he/she is in a vehicle, or get out and shoot. If there's a NPC Rhino, the driver will use the main cannon to shoot the player, regardless of whether or not they're on foot or in a vehicle. Also something to note is that if the player wanders around the outside of Fort Zancudo the military will come out of the base in either Canis Crusaders or Rhino's to take out the player. This only happens if the player has a 3 star wanted level or has been told over 3 times by the guard to leave the area.

==Clothing==
  +
Throughout the series, the military has been dressed in traditional woodland camouflage pattern. In GTA III, they are shown as wearing simply a green outfit with a hat. Troops stationed at [[Fort Baxter Air Base]] wear [[wp:US Woodland|M81 Woodland]] uniforms that was standard-issue during the 1980s. The same seems to carry over into GTA San Andreas, although an urban camouflage pair of trousers can be purchased in [[Binco]], soldiers are never seen wearing them. In Vice City Stories, the outfit seems to resemble an M81 Woodland Pattern, aside from that worn by Corproal [[Victor Vance]], who instead wears a beige shirt with the camo trousers. In GTA V, there are two different types of uniforms. The infantrymen wear a uniform that closely resembles the [[wp:Universal Camouflage Pattern|Universal Camouflage Pattern]], modern U.S. Army standard issue uniform. The Air Force pilots wear a green flight suit, similar to in real life. However, these flight suits do not have any proper insignia or badging.
  +
[[File:AirforcePilot-GTAV.jpg|thumb|215px|Dead Air Force pilot.]]
  +
So far, the outfits are not purchasable in any available store, although trousers of such can be bought in GTA San Andreas, which come in Woodland and Urban patterns. While the Army Fatigues can be re-unlocked in Vice City Stories, they do not resemble what the other soldiers wear, making Vic Vance stand out.
  +
  +
The Military in GTA V have two sets of uniform, the first one being the off-duty uniform used by the patrolling troops in Fort Zancudo, the outfit itself is simply basic camo and occasionally the soldier will wear a camo hat as-well. The other uniform is seen only in the missions: [[The Paleto Score]] and [[Monkey Business]], the soldiers in these missions will wear proper battle gear including a helmet (and or a gas mask in Monkey Business), body armour, ammo pouches and the basic camo gear. This variant also appears driving [[Rhino Tank]]s defending [[Fort Zancudo]], and may rarely spawn out of Rhinos, near the control tower. Air Force pilots can also be found at Fort Zancudo, taking off or landing with [[P-996 LAZER]]s or [[Titan]]s. Pilots with helmets are encountred in [[Minor Turbulence]].
   
 
==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
* In [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], the soldiers at the [[Fort Baxter Air Base]] are considered to be part of the [[Streetwannabe's]] gang.
+
* In [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], the soldiers at the [[Fort Baxter Air Base]] are considered to be part of the [[Streetwannabe's]] gang, and the [[VCPD|cops]] will pursue them as they do with Street Criminals and gangs. Soldiers will not fight back If they are attacked by fist or a melee weapon, but will kill off all the cops they are attacking them If the cops pull out their pistols and shoot at them. This also happens with any Law Enforcement members in Vice City, except the Army who pursues the player at a six-star wanted level, although this kind of Army will also attack the Soldiers who appear at Fort Baxter.
* In the [[GTA III Era]] the [[Rhino]] tank (which chases the player at [[Wanted Level in GTA III Era|six stars]]) does not fire it's main gun. However, in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] the Rhino is programmed to use its turret to full effect, blasting the player into oblivion.
+
*[[Victor Vance]] is the only protagonist who has served in the U.S. military. However, [[Niko Bellic]] has served in the Serbian military.
* The Vice City National Guard soldiers strangely seem to wear fatigues similar to the present day German Army fatigues.
+
* In the [[3D Universe]], the [[Rhino]] tank (which chases the player at [[Wanted Level in 3D Universe|six stars]]) does not fire its main cannon. However, in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]], and [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the Rhino is programmed to use its turret to full effect, blasting the player into oblivion.
 
* The Army soldiers are very dangerous. An example of this can be easily told when the player does the mini gun Rampage to kill all the nearby gang members. If a group of army men see one of the gang members they will instead open fire on sight leaving no time for the specific gang to retaliate back.

  +
* The Military are not in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. This is believed to be because Rockstar planned on making GTA IV realistic unlike San Andreas' over the top style. Although the Military reappeared in [[Grand Theft Auto V]], they are not used as [[Police|Law Enforcement]] or sent after the player for crimes except in the mission "The Paleto Score" in which at some point the army will show up with soldiers and tanks to fight the player. This is possibly a nod to when they showed up at 6 stars.
  +
* The main Military Bases are as follows: [[Fort Baxter Air Base]] (GTA Vice City), [[Easter Basin Naval Station|Easter Basin]]/[[Area 69]] (GTA San Andreas), and [[Fort Zancudo]] (GTA V).
  +
* Throughout the games, so far there are no military officers armed with a [[Sniper Rifle|sniper rifle]].
  +
* Despite the Army having a [[Hunter|attack helicopter]] in the 3D Universe games, so far no Soldiers use them, except for scripted circumstances.
  +
* In GTA Online missions, various enemy gangs and Merryweather mercenaries will use the same dialogue lines as the soldiers from single player.
  +
* Despite not being law enforcement, the military in Grand Theft Auto V have very similar AI to Cops and NOOSE, not shooting, but busting players at 1 star, however, they will switch their weapon to a pistol before performing a vehicular arrest.
  +
*Though the military do not attack the player at any wanted level in GTA V there is an exception as when the player enters [[Fort Zancudo]] an alarm will sound and all units will be told to kill the player. An automatic 4 star wanted level is given.
  +
*Something to note is if the player is close to Fort Zancudo and has a wanted level, the military will be sent out instead of the [[police]].
  +
*The military as stated above will attack the player even if they are not in Fort Zancudo but within range of it. The vehicles sent out are mainly [[Crusader]]s and [[Barracks]] but if the player continues to kill the army soldiers [[Rhino]] tanks are then sent out.

AirForce-GTAO

Members of the Air Force in Fort Zancudo.

"Bunch of glorified Boy Scouts!"
Trevor Philips

The United States military is an armed force featured in every games of the Grand Theft Auto series, except Grand Theft Auto IV and its episodes.

DescriptionEdit

As implied, they are the armed forces of the United States of America, comprising mostly of the army, but also with air and naval bases. The army themselves doesn't appear in Grand Theft Auto IV because it enhances realism; the army would not be sent to arrest one person and because the Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the use of federal military personnel and units of the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress[1]. The army is replaced somewhat by NOOSE. However, the military reappears in GTA V and GTA Online, but it is no longer considered as law enforcement officers.

BehaviorEdit

Grand Theft Auto 2Edit

800px-Army-GTA2

The Military in GTA 2 attacking the player on a six star wanted level

After getting a six star wanted level, the military will replace the police. Pedestrians disappear and normal cars become a rare sight. The soldiers in GTA 2 are armed with machine guns and can easily kill Claude Speed and destroy cars. The military uses different vehicles such as Pacifiers, Land Roamers and a Tank. The military has its base in the Residential District but the base is inaccessible. However, there is a small base in the Industrial District in which it can be accessed during the mission Army Base Alert!.

3D UniverseEdit

After the player gains six stars in a 3D Universe game, the army will begin to chase the player. On the ground, two military vehicles are used to kill the player; the Barracks OL, which is used for troop transport, and the Rhino tank for pursuit. The soldiers themselves are always well-armed with weapons that will often make short work of the player and most vehicles.

Members of the military behave as a gang in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and its prequel, despite not being an actual gang and will attack the player if spotted on military territory, unless in a Cop uniform. They will also set up roadblocks comprised of the Barracks OL and soldiers armed with M16s in GTA III and MP5s (during a 6-star wanted level), and M4 Carbines in every other 3D Universe game. These aren't as lethal as those of the FBI since there could be two FBI vehicles taking up one road with at least eight agents. But seeing as how the Barracks takes up the space of one road, they can be broken through although the MP5s still pose an extreme threat.

A strange thing is that soldiers in the Fort Baxter Air Base never participate in law enforcement activity; if the player is wearing a police uniform or army fatigues and enters the base with a wanted level; only the law enforcement officers that enter from outside the base will try to kill the player.

HD UniverseEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, after gaining six stars, the Rhino and occasionally on-foot infantry will appear. Soldiers are armed with AK-47s at all times. While encountering an occupied Rhino, the player cannot hijack the occupied Rhino. However, there are two ways the Rhino will react depending if the player is on foot or in a vehicle. If the player is in a vehicle, the Rhino will immediately fire at the player's vehicle, setting it aflame (but not blowing it up, allowing the player to bail out and save his or her life). However, if the player is on foot, the Rhino will reluctantly fire, giving the player ample time to escape. The very slow speed of the Rhino makes it easy for the player to outrun it on foot. The Rhino will eventually fire at the player if the player stays in range on foot for too long. A direct hit usually kills the player unless the player has full health and full armour, but will reduce the health to roughly 25% and armour to 0%. The same goes for the Destroyer when the player enters the water.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the military are present in Fort Zancudo outside of missions. If the player loiters around one of the gates entering the base, a guard will approach the protagonist and demand he leaves the area. If the player stays still, the guard will raise his assault rifle and demand once more that the player leaves. If the player still doesn't comply, the guard will open fire. If the player enters the base, the alarm will sound and soldiers will fire at the player on foot. In cars or trucks, they will continually ram the player if he/she is in a vehicle, or get out and shoot. If there's a NPC Rhino, the driver will use the main cannon to shoot the player, regardless of whether or not they're on foot or in a vehicle. Also something to note is that if the player wanders around the outside of Fort Zancudo the military will come out of the base in either Canis Crusaders or Rhino's to take out the player. This only happens if the player has a 3 star wanted level or has been told over 3 times by the guard to leave the area.

ClothingEdit

Throughout the series, the military has been dressed in traditional woodland camouflage pattern. In GTA III, they are shown as wearing simply a green outfit with a hat. Troops stationed at Fort Baxter Air Base wear M81 Woodland uniforms that was standard-issue during the 1980s. The same seems to carry over into GTA San Andreas, although an urban camouflage pair of trousers can be purchased in Binco, soldiers are never seen wearing them. In Vice City Stories, the outfit seems to resemble an M81 Woodland Pattern, aside from that worn by Corproal Victor Vance, who instead wears a beige shirt with the camo trousers. In GTA V, there are two different types of uniforms. The infantrymen wear a uniform that closely resembles the Universal Camouflage Pattern, modern U.S. Army standard issue uniform. The Air Force pilots wear a green flight suit, similar to in real life. However, these flight suits do not have any proper insignia or badging.

So far, the outfits are not purchasable in any available store, although trousers of such can be bought in GTA San Andreas, which come in Woodland and Urban patterns. While the Army Fatigues can be re-unlocked in Vice City Stories, they do not resemble what the other soldiers wear, making Vic Vance stand out.

The Military in GTA V have two sets of uniform, the first one being the off-duty uniform used by the patrolling troops in Fort Zancudo, the outfit itself is simply basic camo and occasionally the soldier will wear a camo hat as-well. The other uniform is seen only in the missions: The Paleto Score and Monkey Business, the soldiers in these missions will wear proper battle gear including a helmet (and or a gas mask in Monkey Business), body armour, ammo pouches and the basic camo gear. This variant also appears driving Rhino Tanks defending Fort Zancudo, and may rarely spawn out of Rhinos, near the control tower. Air Force pilots can also be found at Fort Zancudo, taking off or landing with P-996 LAZERs or Titans. Pilots with helmets are encountred in Minor Turbulence.

TriviaEdit

  • In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the soldiers at the Fort Baxter Air Base are considered to be part of the Streetwannabe's gang, and the cops will pursue them as they do with Street Criminals and gangs. Soldiers will not fight back If they are attacked by fist or a melee weapon, but will kill off all the cops they are attacking them If the cops pull out their pistols and shoot at them. This also happens with any Law Enforcement members in Vice City, except the Army who pursues the player at a six-star wanted level, although this kind of Army will also attack the Soldiers who appear at Fort Baxter.
  • Victor Vance is the only protagonist who has served in the U.S. military. However, Niko Bellic has served in the Serbian military.
  • In the 3D Universe, the Rhino tank (which chases the player at six stars) does not fire its main cannon. However, in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and Grand Theft Auto V, the Rhino is programmed to use its turret to full effect, blasting the player into oblivion.
  • The Army soldiers are very dangerous. An example of this can be easily told when the player does the mini gun Rampage to kill all the nearby gang members. If a group of army men see one of the gang members they will instead open fire on sight leaving no time for the specific gang to retaliate back.
  • The Military are not in Grand Theft Auto IV. This is believed to be because Rockstar planned on making GTA IV realistic unlike San Andreas' over the top style. Although the Military reappeared in Grand Theft Auto V, they are not used as Law Enforcement or sent after the player for crimes except in the mission "The Paleto Score" in which at some point the army will show up with soldiers and tanks to fight the player. This is possibly a nod to when they showed up at 6 stars.
  • The main Military Bases are as follows: Fort Baxter Air Base (GTA Vice City), Easter Basin/Area 69 (GTA San Andreas), and Fort Zancudo (GTA V).
  • Throughout the games, so far there are no military officers armed with a sniper rifle.
  • Despite the Army having a attack helicopter in the 3D Universe games, so far no Soldiers use them, except for scripted circumstances.
  • In GTA Online missions, various enemy gangs and Merryweather mercenaries will use the same dialogue lines as the soldiers from single player.
  • Despite not being law enforcement, the military in Grand Theft Auto V have very similar AI to Cops and NOOSE, not shooting, but busting players at 1 star, however, they will switch their weapon to a pistol before performing a vehicular arrest.
  • Though the military do not attack the player at any wanted level in GTA V there is an exception as when the player enters Fort Zancudo an alarm will sound and all units will be told to kill the player. An automatic 4 star wanted level is given.
  • Something to note is if the player is close to Fort Zancudo and has a wanted level, the military will be sent out instead of the police.
  • The military as stated above will attack the player even if they are not in Fort Zancudo but within range of it. The vehicles sent out are mainly Crusaders and Barracks but if the player continues to kill the army soldiers Rhino tanks are then sent out.
