"The Half-track might look like it's having a really dangerous identity crisis, but trust us, it works. The all-terrain capabilities of a tank, with all the advantages of a truck: straightforward handling, a spacious, prostitute-friendly cabin, and lots of fresh air for the lunatic on the .50 cal in the back."
Warstock Cache & Carry description.


The Bravado Half-track is a military truck featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Gunrunning update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The truck appears as a half-track vehicle with the chassis and main cab of the Duneloader, with the rear tracks based on those of the M3 Half-track. The armored cab option is very reminiscent of the cab armors often used in half-tracks like the Sd.Kfz. 7.

The Half-track, as the name says, replaces the rear wheels of the Duneloader with a set of two tracks, as well as featuring a large truck bed with tall walls and a mounted gun on the back. The front bumper has what appears to be a small roller and several items can be also seen inside the compartment and on the side walls, as well as an uninteractive rear door.

The vehicle has a tow hitch on the back, allowing it to tow the Anti-Aircraft Trailer.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Vehicle

The Half-track possess great acceleration and good mobility, allowing to move quicker than its standard version. The tracks provides great traction on any surface, even allowing to climb the steepest hill when climbing it in a straight line. Its handling is also great, despite being a bit larger than its normal version.

Not only is the Half-track great at handling off-road conditions, it can also tolerate deep water. While not amphibious, the Half-track can be submerged up until the snorkel on the left side of the cab is drowned. This is because exhausts in GTA V determine when the vehicle should cut out under water, and the Half-track's snorkel is considered an exhaust by the game - moreover, small amounts of exhaust fumes can be seen coming out of the snorkel. Since the snorkel ("exhaust") is raised above the cab, the player can drive the half-track underwater so long as the tip of the snorkel remains above the water surface. This trait is shared with its standard variant, the Duneloader.

Like the Duneloader, the Half-track is powered by a diesel engine, which, due to the low details, does not reveal its exact configuration. The engine is coupled to a 4-speed gearbox in a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout. A differential provides connection between the system and the upper front pulleys of either track.

Armor

The armor of the vehicle is nearly as good as the APC, providing great tolerance against gunfire, though the occupants may be vulnerable due to the rather large windows. The gunner is rather safe thanks to the turret shields and the bed walls, but may get easily defeated by enemies attacking on their flanks.

Weaponry
  • The stock gun features two Oerlikon 20mm guns (oddly behaving like .50 caliber machine guns), offering excellent fire rate and range. The turret features a small glass sighting on it.
  • The Autocannon option features quad-firing 2cm (20mm) Flak 38 autocannons and behaves like four fast-firing machine guns. Though not very different from its stock counterpart, it has more chances to hit a vehicle thanks to its four guns. It has a basic sighting frame, like the stock weapon of the Anti-Aircraft Trailer.

Note that, according to the files, both weapons have an increased damage over vehicles, with a ×1.5 multiplier. While statistically similar, the machine guns have a slightly higher fire rate than the autocannons (despite the quad gun having a higher rate than the machine guns in-game, judging by the bolt cycling sound).

Trivia

General

  • The roller seen in the Half-track is actually an unditching roller, which is a device fitted to the front of military vehicles, such as the M3 Scout Car and the M3 Half-track, for the purpose of preventing the vehicle from getting stuck in an obstacle, such as a ditch. Obviously, it does not have such characteristic and instead, serves more like a front defense.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The player is able to see the bullet belts through the drum casings of the stock mounted gun. When firing, they realistically move as soon as a round is fired. Strangely, the right belt appears to move to the centre of the drum, rather than to where the right gun is located.
  • Being based on an armed military truck from World War II, the Half-Track is one of the oldest military vehicles in the GTA series along with the Rustler and the P-45 Nokota, two World War II fighter planes.
  • Either being a glitch or an intended effect, one particular characteristic of the Half-track is that, with the heavy armor plating upgrade, the front windshield becomes indestructible, meaning no bullet can pass through it, even if it leaves weak spots or using specialized rounds (a feature similar to the Securicar, the Enforcer and the Police Stockade, all from Grand Theft Auto IV). However, the side windows are unarmored, thus able to kill players by shooting through these.
  • Although the Warstock product description mentions its "prostitute-friendly cabin", the player cannot pick up a prostitute when driving the Half-track.

Bugs/Glitches

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Exhaust fumes can be seen coming from the snorkel. This is because the truck does not have a regular exhaust pipe and its snorkel is considered an exhaust pipe by the game, explaining why it can travel in deep water. This is shared with the Duneloader.
