The HVY Docktug is a single-occupant industrial truck found in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


The Docktug is based on the Ottawa Commando 4x2 Terminal Yard Tractor, a Canadian truck used, just like the Docktug, as a semi-trailer truck, though it does not only involve being used in ports.

The Docktug assumes an asymmetrical design, where the cabin only occupies the left side of the wheelbase instead of the entire wheelbase's width. The front end is rather simple and features a ram bar with the typical yellow-black pattern, squared headlights and turning lights. While the left quarter is straight, the right quarter is angled a bit, causing the right headlight to be more centered than the left headlight, causing the characteristic asymmetry. Next to the right light is the grille, which is also located to the rightside, rather than centered.

The cab only has enough room for the driver and contains the left door and a rear-view mirror on the left, as well as a set of trumpet horns and a strobe light mounted on the right part of the cab, while on the right side, a large pole holds the right mirror. Next to the cab and almost below it, there is a small compartment that possibly holds the engine, as suggested by the grille and the unusable cover seen below the cab's windshield. Behind the cab, a large frame separates the front section from the rear one, accompanied by the large exhaust pipe seen in the right side of the vehicle. The rear section is very small and only contains the rear axle, fuel tank depot on the left, a small ladder on the right, rear wheel fenders and the typical platform for trailers. Unlike most industrial semi trucks, the vehicle lacks tailights.

The Docktug's windows are bulletproof and can withstand a few bullet hits before being shattered. [2]

Grand Theft Auto V

Because of its singular purpose in short-haul trailer transporting, the Docktug does not possess exceptional performance figures. Acceleration is just below the Phantom and braking is adequate for its smaller size. Acceleration and braking are also affected slightly by having a trailer hooked to the back, just as it would be in real life.

The Docktug has no visible engine model due to its compact and cab-over body design, however, the engine sound revs moderately high (yet still lower than other trucks, such as the Benson and Police Riot), and provides a significantly smooth engine sound, yet the roar produced from the engine can still be heard unlike the aforementioned vehicles, the Benson and Police Riot.

Because of the smaller size and weight, the Docktug will not knock cars out of the way in a collision, although it can cause significant damage depending on the size of the vehicle hit.

Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Rarely seen on Strawberry Avenue.
  • May spawn on Elysian Island.


Grand Theft Auto V

  • Attaching a container trailer will tend to be problematic. The trailer seems too long for the vehicle and becomes stuck in the semi's rear hinges and rack. Once it is sucessfully attached, it will collide constantly with the truck's rear at turns, often interrupting the normal driving.
