== Description ==
 
The Securicar is an armored truck, used to transport money, and in some missions, people (capable of carrying up to 4 occupants). Unlike in real life, the trucks are not bulletproof, nor do the driver(s) generally carry guns. The exception to this is GTA San Andreas, where drivers wear security uniforms, and have holstered [[Pistol]]s; they still, however, behave like ordinary civilians, and do not fire at the player if car-jacked.
 
   
=== GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories ===

==Description==
The Securicar was initially designed with a heavy, robust truck-based body that is painted an overall dark blue. This design stuck for GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories, and GTA Vice City Stories, but in GTA San Andreas, it featured a radically different, somewhat smaller design, more reminiscent of real armored vans, like a 1990s model [[wp:Chevrolet Kodiak|GMC TopKick]]. The GTA San Andreas Securicar may be seen with the markings of [[Chuff Security Co.|Chuff Security]] (a lewd parody of real-life firm Chubb Security) or [[Lock and Load Security]], or be unmarked. In GTA III the securicars can be driven to a garage at [[Portland Harbor]] for a sum of money. In GTA III, if rear doors are removed, you can see boxes of "loot" in the back. The Securicar in GTA Vice City also has a bulletproof windshield.

The truck is not generally recommended for anything other than regular street driving, as the uneven weight of the armor tends to flip the truck over even minor curves or hills. The Securicar in Vice City is the version least prone to flipping over in this era.

As the GTA San Andreas rendition assumes a completely different body design based on the [[wp:International Harvester S-Series|International Harvester S-Series]], the vehicle's performance differs slightly, but remains very undesirable. With its heavy weight, the Securicar's steering and braking fares poorly, in addition to a softer suspension which reduces stability when negotiating uneven turns. The vehicle does, however, have a slightly above-average top speed.

In GTA IV, the Securicar, manufactured by [[Brute]], is a larger vehicle with a realistic design, similar in shape to the GTA San Andreas rendition. The truck chassis is based on an armored Freightliner FL-60, but the front turning signals have been omitted. It is powered by a large, 8 liter (or 8000cc as seen on the badging for the vehicle) turbocharged engine. The cargo area has a similarly shaped roof to the GTA San Andreas rendition. The Securicar shares its basic chassis with the [[NOOSE]] [[Enforcer]] and [[Police Stockade]], the latter of which may be the "original"; the Enforcer lacks the Securicar's bulletproof side windows, but is equipped with a bulletproof windscreen.[[File:Stockade,Brute.jpg|thumb|Engine close-up on the stockade in GTA V.]]
   
=== GTA IV ===
+
The GTA IV Securicar will spawn a large amount of [[Money|cash]] around it if blown up, but doing so with weapons will immediately attract a 2 stars [[Wanted Level in GTA IV|wanted level]], regardless of where it is done. To avoid this, the player can use one of the car-bombs supplied by [[Patrick McReary]] (this is his [[Friendships in GTA IV|friendship]] bonus) to blow up the car, or damage it enough while driving it that it will burst into flames and explode.

In GTA V, the vehicle is renamed as Stockade. In [[Random Events|random events]], money is able to be stolen by blowing the back doors open, and generates $3000-$8000. Money can still be obtained by blowing up the Stockade if it spawns in traffic, though it rarely does. It is also found empty near banks, particularly in [[Legion Square]] and [[Hawick]]. In [[Prologue]], a snow covered Stockade can be seen here, with the Bobcat Security livery on it and a smile face marked on the left cargo window.

The Securicar's handling and acceleration have been greatly enhanced, and it will no longer tip over when turning through corners. It is highly resistant to gunfire and everyday vehicle damage, but it is not explosion- or fire-proof, and so can be destroyed by a single grenade placed directly beneath it, or with a rocket. The rear axle of this vehicle is also unique, as compared to most of the heavy vehicles in GTA IV, it utilizes single wheels on each side of the rear axle as opposed to twin wheels, however if driven on dirt or sand you can see that it leaves tracks as if it has twin wheels. (As evidenced by the 6 tracks it leaves behind when turning.)

The Securicar in Vice City is the version least prone to flipping over in this era. The Securicar in GTA Vice City however , can be used for escaping and breaking through SWAT roadblocks as the heavy weight of the vehicle easily outweighs the Enforcer's weight ( 7000kg vs 4000kg ) although the vehicle needs a runup in order to gain speed to break the roadblock.
   
After collecting all thirty cars for [[Stevie]] he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Securicar fetching $4,000.

The name of the Securicar may be a pun on [[wp:G4S|Securicor]], a British security company that merged with Belgium-based security company ''Group 4 Falck'' in 2004 to form the infamous [[wp:G4S|Group 4 Securicor]] (now known simply as G4S). Renditions of the Securicar in GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories have "[[Gruppe Sechs]]" logos on the side, a German language pun on both the Group 4 company, and the term "group sex". In GTA IV, the fleet markings render the company name as "Gruppe 6", but the vehicle still features "Gruppe Sechs" decals in much smaller print on various surfaces. The GTA San Andreas rendition, however, substitutes all Gruppe Sechs markings with other security company brand names.

The Brute Securicar is an armored truck first introduced in Grand Theft Auto III, serving as the successor to the G4 Bank Van from Grand Theft Auto 2. Its name is both a combination of the words "Security" and "Car", as well as a reference to G4S, formerly known as Group 4 Securicor.

To date, the vehicle has been featured in the following games:

DescriptionEdit

The Securicar is an armored truck, used to transport money, and in some missions, people (capable of carrying up to 4 occupants). Unlike in real life, the trucks are not bulletproof, nor do the driver(s) generally carry guns. The exception to this is GTA San Andreas, where drivers wear security uniforms, and have holstered Pistols; they still, however, behave like ordinary civilians, and do not fire at the player if car-jacked.

The Securicar was initially designed with a heavy, robust truck-based body that is painted an overall dark blue. This design stuck for GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories, and GTA Vice City Stories, but in GTA San Andreas, it featured a radically different, somewhat smaller design, more reminiscent of real armored vans, like a 1990s model GMC TopKick. The GTA San Andreas Securicar may be seen with the markings of Chuff Security (a lewd parody of real-life firm Chubb Security) or Lock and Load Security, or unmarked. In GTA III, if rear doors are removed, you can see boxes of "loot" in the back. The Securicar in GTA Vice City also has a bulletproof windshield.

As the GTA San Andreas rendition assumes a completely different body design based on the International Harvester S-Series, the vehicle's performance differs slightly, but remains very undesirable. With its heavy weight, the Securicar's steering and braking fares poorly, in addition to a softer suspension which reduces stability when negotiating uneven turns. The vehicle does, however, have a slightly above-average top speed.

Badging on the Securicar.

In GTA IV, the Securicar, manufactured by Brute, is a larger vehicle with a realistic design, similar in shape to the GTA San Andreas rendition. The truck chassis is based on an armored Freightliner FL-60, but the front turning signals have been omitted. It is powered by a large, 8 liter (or 8000cc as seen on the badging for the vehicle) turbocharged engine. The cargo area has a similarly shaped roof to the GTA San Andreas rendition. The Securicar shares its basic chassis with the NOOSE Enforcer and Police Stockade, the latter of which may be the "original"; the Enforcer lacks the Securicar's bulletproof side windows, but is equipped with a bulletproof windscreen.

The GTA IV Securicar will spawn a large amount of cash around it if blown up, but doing so with weapons will immediately attract a 2 stars wanted level, regardless of where it is done. To avoid this, the player can use one of the car-bombs supplied by Patrick McReary (this is his friendship bonus) to blow up the car, or damage it enough while driving it that it will burst into flames and explode.

In GTA V, the vehicle is renamed as Stockade. In random events, money is able to be stolen by blowing the back doors open, and generates $3000-$8000. Money can still be obtained by blowing up the Stockade if it spawns in traffic, though it rarely does. It is also found empty near banks, particularly in Legion Square and Hawick. In Prologue, a snow covered Stockade can be seen here, with the Bobcat Security livery on it and a smile face marked on the left cargo window.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The truck is not generally recommended for anything other than regular street driving, as the uneven weight of the armor tends to flip the truck over even minor curves or hills. The Securicar in Vice City is the version least prone to flipping over in this era. The Securicar in GTA Vice City however , can be used for escaping and breaking through SWAT roadblocks as the heavy weight of the vehicle easily outweighs the Enforcer's weight ( 7000kg vs 4000kg ) although the vehicle needs a runup in order to gain speed to break the roadblock.

The Securicar's handling and acceleration have been greatly enhanced, and it will no longer tip over when turning through corners. It is highly resistant to gunfire and everyday vehicle damage, but it is not explosion- or fire-proof, and so can be destroyed by a single grenade placed directly beneath it, or with a rocket. The rear axle of this vehicle is also unique, as compared to most of the heavy vehicles in GTA IV, it utilizes single wheels on each side of the rear axle as opposed to twin wheels, however if driven on dirt or sand you can see that it leaves tracks as if it has twin wheels (as evidenced by the 6 tracks it leaves behind when turning).

References to Group 4 SecuricorEdit

The Securicar in its entirety may be a reference to two real-life security companies, which, coincidentally, would merge years after the introduction of the Securicar in the GTA series.

The name of the Securicar may be a pun on Securicor, a British security company that merged with Belgium-based security company Group 4 Falck in 2004 to form the infamous Group 4 Securicor (now known simply as G4S). Renditions of the Securicar in GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories have "Gruppe Sechs" logos on the side, a German language pun on both the Group 4 company, and the term "group sex". In GTA IV, the fleet markings render the company name as "Gruppe 6", but the vehicle still features "Gruppe Sechs" decals in much smaller print on various surfaces. The GTA San Andreas rendition, however, substitutes all Gruppe Sechs markings with other security company brand names.
