The HVY Barracks Semi is a military semi-truck featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

DesignEdit

The vehicle itself has the same front end and main cabin design as the Barracks OL, but the rear is adapted to attach trailers, as the name suggests. Like the transport variant and other military ground vehicles, it patrols Fort Zancudo and is seen parked in several areas. 

It's heavily based on the M915A5 Tractor Trailer, sharing the initial body shape, grille attachments and color scheme.

PerformanceEdit

GTA V Edit

Due to its shorter wheelbase, it has better performance in handling and turning, and above average acceleration when compared to similar vehicles and its trooper counterpart, the Barracks OL. The vehicle is very stable and easy to control. However, the brakes are much less responsive, taking a while to stop even at the lowest of speeds. The Barracks Semi is capable of pulling trailers much faster than normal semi tractors.
