The [[Jobuilt]] '''Phantom''' is a tractor trailer truck in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
   
The '''Phantom''' is a tractor trailer truck in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]] manufactured by [[Jobuilt]], an obvious parody of [[Wikipedia:Peterbilt|Peterbilt]].

==Description==
  +
The truck resembles a Peterbilt 359 EXHD. The Phantom is possibly used in Labor Union Trucking as the truck is driven by the [[The Commission|Italian Mafia]].
   
== Description ==
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the Phantom is unable to [[Towing|move]] any of the cargo trailers around the city. However, this ability is present in [[Grand Theft Auto V]], with the same system as previous games, in which the player need only back up into a trailer.
   
The Phantom has a 24-valve Supercharged engine (over 720hp and, if following the general physics of a diesel engine for torque to power ratios, about 2,500 lbs-ft of torque), allowing the vehicle to accelerate moderately well despite its weight and reach moderately high top speeds, but does nothing to improve its slower brake response and wide turning radius. Its size and weight make it perfect for pushing almost any vehicle out of the way; such is its power that it can cause critical damage to some vehicles (igniting their engine) upon impact. The truck resembles a Peterbilt 359 EXHD.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Phantom's performance is above average for what one might expect from a truck of its size. It has above average acceleration, and given enough room, can reach an impressive top speed that can rival some sports cars. Cornering is rather sluggish, and careful use of the brakes are required at higher speeds to offset the understeer. Few non-armored vehicles can match the durability of the Phantom. Deformation damage seldom has need of being considered, and the engine can take several hard blows before giving out. As expected, it has a very high mass, easily ramming traffic out of the way, and capable of setting vehicles on fire with just one hit at a decent speed. As long as tight spaces are out of the question, the Phantom is quite viable for use as a chase or getaway vehicle.
   
Unlike the tractor trailers in [[Grand Theft Auto 2]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], the Phantom cannot [[Towing|attach to any trailers]] parked throughout the [[Liberty City in GTA IV Era|city]].
+
In Grand Theft Auto V, the performance is virtually identical to its Grand Theft Auto IV counterpart. However, the general speed increase of vehicles in the game have toned down the advantages present before. It can still serve as a decent vehicle to travel long distances with, due to its acceptable speed and excellent durability. It is not recommended for offroad use, due to its top-heaviness and slow acceleration on slopes.
 
==Performance==
 
 
The performance for a truck of this size is actually impressive, but obviously not the best. Acceleration is mediocre, but better than its size would suggest. Speed is very good, making the Phantom one of the fastest industrial vehicles in the game, but not as fast as the [[Fire Truck]]. Handling is, as expected, poor, but if the player holds the brake and the acceleration buttons at the same time while turning, the truck tends to turn easier. This trick also works with the [[Biff]], [[Bus]], and [[Flatbed]].

The Jobuilt Phantom is a tractor trailer truck in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.

DescriptionEdit

The truck resembles a Peterbilt 359 EXHD. The Phantom is possibly used in Labor Union Trucking as the truck is driven by the Italian Mafia.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Phantom is unable to move any of the cargo trailers around the city. However, this ability is present in Grand Theft Auto V, with the same system as previous games, in which the player need only back up into a trailer.

PerformanceEdit

The Phantom has a 24-valve Supercharged engine (over 720hp and, if following the general physics of a diesel engine for torque to power ratios, about 2,500 lbs-ft of torque) according to the badges near the driver side door.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Phantom's performance is above average for what one might expect from a truck of its size. It has above average acceleration, and given enough room, can reach an impressive top speed that can rival some sports cars. Cornering is rather sluggish, and careful use of the brakes are required at higher speeds to offset the understeer. Few non-armored vehicles can match the durability of the Phantom. Deformation damage seldom has need of being considered, and the engine can take several hard blows before giving out. As expected, it has a very high mass, easily ramming traffic out of the way, and capable of setting vehicles on fire with just one hit at a decent speed. As long as tight spaces are out of the question, the Phantom is quite viable for use as a chase or getaway vehicle.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the performance is virtually identical to its Grand Theft Auto IV counterpart. However, the general speed increase of vehicles in the game have toned down the advantages present before. It can still serve as a decent vehicle to travel long distances with, due to its acceptable speed and excellent durability. It is not recommended for offroad use, due to its top-heaviness and slow acceleration on slopes.

  • The Rubble is the dump truck version of the Phantom

Trivia Edit

  • Despite being a enormous vehicle, the Phantom can still be used to perform burnouts and "donuts".
  • The Phantom trucks and most other trucks are vehicles in GTA IV that are never locked. However, a wanted level may still be attained when stealing one within police view.
