The S.W.A.T. can accommodate two people, who can enter through the doors on either side. There are also various hatches on top of the APC, but these aren't accessible.

Both the front and rear areas of the vehicles are modeled with some sort of unusable "tow hitch".

The S.W.A.T. is an armored law enforcement vehicle in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Design Edit

Designed as a large four-wheeled armored riot control police vehicle for San Andreas, the S.W.A.T. is more accurately described as an armored personnel carrier (APC), contrary to its "Tank" name. The S.W.A.T. is based on the Cadillac Gage V-100 Commando, which the real-life Los Angeles Police Department sometimes used as an urban assault vehicle during the 1980s and 1990s.

The S.W.A.T. can accommodate two people, who can enter through the doors on either side. There are also various hatches on top of the APC, but these aren't accessible. The vehicle also features a wailing siren but lacks light bars to complement it, like the Barracks. Both the front and rear areas of the vehicles are modeled with some sort of unusable "tow hitch".

Performance Edit

The S.W.A.T. is one of the fastest law enforcement vehicles, despite its size and weight. The tank can also do 360's and burnouts. It features a fully rotatable water cannon that can easily knock down enemies, meaning it can put out fires and is fun to drive as its shovel-shaped front easily pushes cars harshly with minuscule damage done to the APC. It also has double the health of any other general vehicle in the game due to its heavy armor.

The S.W.A.T., like any police vehicle, can be used to initiate the Vigilante vehicle mission. However, since Carl Johnson cannot perform a drive-by in the S.W.A.T., it is not recommended to try to do so. This vehicle is not bullet-proof/damage-proof/fire-proof/explosion-proof, meaning if being shot at by the FBI, SWAT, Army, or Police with heavy weapons, this vehicle may explode quickly, making it a terrible getaway car. However, in the last mission, there is a bullet and fireproof version.

LocationsEdit

The S.W.A.T. is considerably rare, appearing only twice during the last mission, only one of which can be stored in a garage:

  • The first one is required to be stolen by the player to ram into Big Smoke's Crack Palace (which is bullet and fireproof), but may be stored in any available garage space after. Due to a glitch during the mission, however, it is difficult to save the S.W.A.T. as it will normally disappear after the mission (apart that this glitch also affects other law enforcements vehicles). The only way to save it will be to fail the mission and then play it again. The easiest way to fail and keep the SWAT is simply to park it in a garage, and then blow it up. Once the S.W.A.T. is destroyed, the player must allow the garage door to close and then reopen it to restore its condition.
  • The second one is seen inside the Crack Palace when ambush, and it's also unlocked and drivable, but cannot be saved into a garage, as the vehicle is stranded within the interior. Unlike the first one, it is not bullet nor fireproof.

Outside the mission, the S.W.A.T. can otherwise be spawned or made available using cheating devices and mods in both the console versions and the PC version.

For the iPhone version, the method is a bit different: The player must store the vehicle in the garage and then commit suicide to fail the mission. Afterwards, they must press "NO" when asked to restart the mission, then the player can go back to the garage where the vehicle was stored, and then save the game. The S.W.A.T. will be saved in that garage.

TriviaEdit

  • The S.W.A.T. shares the engine sound with the Enforcer and the Barracks.
  • When entered, Carl sits in an invisible chair and puts his hands in an invisible spot where the steering wheel is supposed to be located. Also, Carl sits where the doors are located, which is a developer's oversight, as the main cab of the vehicle is located at the front.
  • Boxes of S.W.A.T. models can be found in the Zero RC store, labeling the vehicle as the "Swat Van 92". 92 refers to the year San Andreas is set (1992). Also, the wheels are much thinner than the actual model (about as 1/2; 1/3 of the actual wheel's width).
  • As indicated by the existence of the handling line being still in the game files of the PC version of GTA IV, a "S.W.A.T.", implied to be the same vehicle as that in GTA San Andreas, was intended to appear in the game.[1] An equivalent was finally made available in The Ballad of Gay Tony, in which a NOOSE APC with an operable cannon fitted with explosive rounds is introduced.
  • Strangely, Denise or GSF members can do drive-bys inside this vehicle. They pass through the S.W.A.T. windows.
  • While the S.W.A.T. will appear either unmarked or marked with a single digit (ranging from 1-9), the vehicle tends to appear with the number 7.
