The [[HVY]] '''Airtug''' is an airport tug featured in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]].

== Design ==
  +
=== ''Grand Theft Auto IV'' ===
  +
The Airtug is a low-power tug with a small, open-cab design that appears to be a replacement for the [[Baggage Handler]] (featured in the [[3D Universe]]), as well as the similarly designed [[Tug]]. As usual, the Airtug, being property of the [[Francis International Airport (HD Universe)|Francis International Airport]], features [[FlyUS]] livery.
   
== Description ==

===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
The Airtug, a low-power tug available only within the tarmacs of [[Francis International Airport, Dukes|Francis International Airport]] (FIA), appears to be a replacement for the [[Baggage Handler]] featured in the [[GTA III Era]], as well as the similarly designed [[Tug]]. As usual, the Airtug, being property of the FIA, features [[FlyUS]] livery.
+
The Airtug reappears in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'' in [[Los Santos International Airport (HD Universe)|Los Santos International Airport]] with the exact same design and handling as ''GTA IV''. Despite there being several other airliners in the game, the Airtug only appears with a [[FlyUS]] livery. This time, the emergency lights behind the seats can be activated by the player.
   
Like the Baggage Handler, the Airtug's performance is ranked as one of the poorest in the game. Its weaker engine means that its speed is considerably slow, but makes up for with good acceleration and moderately good cornering due to its low speed and light weight. The Airtug's compact size may also be used to the advantage of the player as it can squeeze through tight spaces, such as gaps between rocks and staircases. The Airtug may also seat up to two occupants.

The Airtug's open design, however, makes any of its occupants highly vulnerable to gunfire, and is generally unstable for multiplayer gameplay as a result, especially during [[Deathmatch]]es or Free Mode (unless for fun only). Unlike the Baggage Handler in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], it can no longer be used to tow the luggage carts or towbars in the airport. The Airtug has an incredibly quiet engine, possibly being an electric vehicle.

An easy way to obtain the Airtug without getting a [[Wanted Level in GTA IV|wanted level]] is to go into the airport using a cop car, which will buy the player enough time to get one and leave without triggering the four stars. Players should enter the barricaded entrance just south of the main terminal, then turn right through another barricaded entrance onto the tarmac proper. Turning left into normal traffic flow and following the marked lines will lead the player to an Airtug without arousing suspicion, and leave the player with enough time to take the Airtug and drive it back out into the public roads.

The HVY Airtug is an airport tug featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design Edit

Grand Theft Auto IV Edit

The Airtug is a low-power tug with a small, open-cab design that appears to be a replacement for the Baggage Handler (featured in the 3D Universe), as well as the similarly designed Tug. As usual, the Airtug, being property of the Francis International Airport, features FlyUS livery.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

The Airtug reappears in Grand Theft Auto V in Los Santos International Airport with the exact same design and handling as GTA IV. Despite there being several other airliners in the game, the Airtug only appears with a FlyUS livery. This time, the emergency lights behind the seats can be activated by the player.

Performance Edit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

Like the Baggage Handler, the Airtug's performance is ranked as one of the poorest in the game. Its weaker engine means that its speed is considerably slow, but makes up for with good acceleration and moderately good cornering due to its low speed, light weight and short wheelbase. The Airtug's compact size may also be used to the advantage of the player as it can squeeze through tight spaces, such as gaps between rocks and staircases. The Airtug may also seat up to two occupants.

The Airtug's open design, however, makes any of its occupants highly vulnerable to gunfire, and is generally unstable for multiplayer gameplay as a result, especially during Deathmatches or Free Mode (unless for fun only). Unlike the Baggage Handler in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it can no longer be used to tow the luggage carts or towbars in the airport. The Airtug has an incredibly quiet engine, possibly being an electric vehicle (much like the Forklift, another small industrial vehicle), despite being modeled in-game after a V8 engine, similar to the Washington and the Esperanto's ones.
