The '''Securicar''' and '''Stockade''' are armored bank trucks first introduced in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'', serving as the successor to the [[G4 Bank Van]] from ''[[Grand Theft Auto 2]]''. The vehicle has appeared in every single game since then, with

the only exception being ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]''. It is manufactured by [[Brute]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
The [[Brute]] '''Securicar''' is an armored truck first introduced in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], serving as the successor to the [[G4 Bank Van]] from [[Grand Theft Auto 2]]. Its name is both a combination of "Security" and "Car", as well as a reference to G4S, formerly known as Group 4 Securicor.

==Description==
  +
The Securicar is an armored truck, used to transport money, and in some missions, people (capable of carrying up to 4 occupants). Unlike in real life, the trucks are not bulletproof. It is, however, durable to heavy gunfire, and is now bulletproof to the player in GTA V.
   
To date, the vehicle has been featured in the following games:

The Securicar was initially designed with a heavy, robust truck-based body that is painted an overall dark blue. In ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]'', and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', the truck's design is based on that of a 1990s model [[wp:Chevrolet Kodiak|GMC TopKick]], with a thick defense on the front that protects the radiator and an agled design.
  +
In ''GTA III'', if rear doors are removed, the player can see boxes of "loot" in the back. The Securicar in ''GTA Vice City'' also has a bulletproof windshield. These renditions of the Securicar have "[[Gruppe Sechs]]" logos on the sides and rear.

== Description ==
 
The Securicar is an armored truck, used to transport money, and in some missions, people (capable of carrying up to 4 occupants). Unlike in real life, the trucks are not bulletproof, nor do the driver(s) generally carry guns. The exception to this is GTA San Andreas, where drivers wear security uniforms, and have holstered [[Pistol]]s; they still, however, behave like ordinary civilians, and do not fire at the player if car-jacked.
 
   
=== GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories ===
+
===HD Universe===
The Securicar was initially designed with a heavy, robust truck-based body that is painted an overall dark blue. This design stuck for GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories, and GTA Vice City Stories, but in GTA San Andreas, it featured a radically different, somewhat smaller design, more reminiscent of real armored vans, like a 1990s model [[wp:Chevrolet Kodiak|GMC TopKick]]. The GTA San Andreas Securicar may be seen with the markings of [[Chuff Security Co.|Chuff Security]] (a lewd parody of real-life firm Chubb Security) or [[Lock and Load Security]], or be unmarked. In GTA III the securicars can be driven to a garage at [[Portland Harbor]] for a sum of money. In GTA III, if rear doors are removed, you can see boxes of "loot" in the back. The Securicar in GTA Vice City also has a bulletproof windshield.
+
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', the Securicar, manufactured by [[Brute]], is a larger vehicle with a realistic design, similar in shape to the ''GTA San Andreas'' rendition. The truck chassis is based on an armored [http://www.miniworlds.de/Vorbild2/truck_international_4000_dunpar_01.jpg International 4700 Series], but the front turning signals have been omitted. It is powered by a large, 8 liter (or 8000cc as seen on the badging for the vehicle) turbocharged engine. The cargo area has a similarly shaped roof to the ''GTA San Andreas'' rendition. The Securicar shares its basic chassis with the [[Enforcer]] and the [[Police Stockade]]. All these vans have a bulletproof windscreen, but the Securicar is rather unique with bulletproof side windows.
   
The truck is not generally recommended for anything other than regular street driving, as the uneven weight of the armor tends to flip the truck over even minor curves or hills. The Securicar in Vice City is the version least prone to flipping over in this era.
+
The ''GTA IV'' Securicar will spill a large amount of [[Money|cash]] around it if blown up (usually containing between $500 and $2000), but doing so with weapons will immediately attract a 2 stars [[Wanted Level in GTA IV|wanted level]], regardless of where it is done. To avoid this, the player can use one of the car-bombs supplied by [[Patrick McReary]] (this is his [[Friendships in GTA IV|friendship]] bonus) to blow up the car, or damage it enough while driving it that it will burst into flames and explode. The money that is ejected from the truck after explosion disappears faster than money dropped by pedestrians on the street. Also, there will always be money under the truck that the player will not be able to collect, apart of the subsequent fire that would burn the player.
   
As the GTA San Andreas rendition assumes a completely different body design based on the [[wp:International Harvester S-Series|International Harvester S-Series]], the vehicle's performance differs slightly, but remains very undesirable. With its heavy weight, the Securicar's steering and braking fares poorly, in addition to a softer suspension which reduces stability when negotiating uneven turns. The vehicle does, however, have a slightly above-average top speed.
+
A good way around this is to blow the truck up by either ramming it enough times until it catches fire in a parking garage on a lower level and run to the floor above to collect the cash, as none will be under the truck if using this method. This will be for a limited time (about 25 seconds).
   
<gallery spacing="small" position="center" widths="200" captionalign="center" captionsize="small" bordercolor="#8e8e8e">
+
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', the vehicle is renamed as '''Stockade'''. In [[Random Events|random events]], money is able to be stolen by blowing the back doors open, and generates $3000-$8000. Money can still be obtained by blowing up the Stockade if it spawns in traffic, though it rarely does. It is also found empty near banks, particularly in [[Legion Square]] and [[Hawick]]. Only if the blue dot appears in the radar, the Securicar contains money inside.

In GTA IV, the Securicar, manufactured by [[Brute]], is a larger vehicle with a realistic design, similar in shape to the GTA San Andreas rendition. The truck chassis is based on an armored [[WP:Navistar International|1989-2001 International 4000 Series]], but the front turning signals have been omitted. It is powered by a large, 8 liter (or 8000cc as seen on the badging for the vehicle) turbocharged engine. The cargo area has a similarly shaped roof to the GTA San Andreas rendition. The Securicar shares its basic chassis with the [[NOOSE]] [[Enforcer]] and [[Police Stockade]], the latter of which may be the "original"; the Enforcer lacks the Securicar's bulletproof side windows, but is equipped with a bulletproof windscreen.

==Performance==
  +
===3D Universe===
  +
The truck is not generally recommended for anything other than regular street driving, as the uneven weight of the armor tends to flip the truck over even minor curves or hills. The Securicar in ''Vice City'' is the version least prone to flipping over in this universe. The Securicar in ''GTA Vice City'' however, can be used for escaping and breaking through SWAT [[Police Roadblocks|roadblocks]], as the heavy weight of the vehicle easily outweighs the Enforcer's weight ( 7000kg vs 4000kg {{fact}}) although the vehicle needs a run-up in order to gain speed to break the roadblock.
   
The GTA IV Securicar will spawn a large amount of [[Money|cash]] around it if blown up, but doing so with weapons will immediately attract a 2 stars [[Wanted Level in GTA IV|wanted level]], regardless of where it is done. To avoid this, the player can use one of the car-bombs supplied by [[Patrick McReary]] (this is his [[Friendships in GTA IV|friendship]] bonus) to blow up the car, or damage it enough while driving it that it will burst into flames and explode.
+
In ''GTA: SA'', the vehicle's performance differs slightly, but remains very undesirable. With its heavy weight, the Securicar's steering and braking fares poorly, in addition to a softer suspension which reduces stability when negotiating uneven turns. The vehicle does, however, have a slightly above-average top speed.
   
The Securicar's handling and acceleration have been greatly enhanced, and it will no longer tip over when turning through corners. It is highly resistant to gunfire and everyday vehicle damage, but it is not explosion- or fire-proof, and so can be destroyed by a single grenade placed directly beneath it, or with a rocket. The rear axle of this vehicle is also unique, as compared to most of the heavy vehicles in GTA IV, it utilizes single wheels on each side of the rear axle as opposed to twin wheels, however if driven on dirt or sand you can see that it leaves tracks as if it has twin wheels. (As evidenced by the 6 tracks it leaves behind when turning.)

===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
  +
The Securicar's handling and acceleration have been greatly enhanced, and it will no longer tip over when turning through corners. It is highly resistant to gunfire and everyday vehicle damage, but it is not explosion and/or fire-proof, and so can be destroyed by a [[Grenades|grenade]] or single [[RPG|rocket]]. The Securicar is highly bulletproof against enemies, yet the player can destroy it quite quickly on the front area.

After collecting all thirty cars for [[Stevie]] he agrees to purchase cars from [[Niko Bellic]], with the Securicar fetching $4,000.

  +
[[File:Stockade-GTAV-RSCStats.png|thumb|200px|Performance Stats on [[Rockstar Games Social Club]].]]
  +
The ''GTA V'' Stockade has, comparably, the best performance of all the trucks in the game, with better acceleration, top speed, handling, and of course durability. As intended, the vehicle can sustain multiple impacts with and from traffic, and can resist gunfire with ease. The Stockade's endurance capabilities makes the Stockade one of the strongest cars in the game.
   
== References to Group 4 Securicor ==
+
The engine model appears to be a twin-cam Inline 4, turbocharged, shared with many other trucks in the game. Despite this, the engine sounds to be somewhat similar to a high-revving Inline-6 diesel, creating a significantly smooth sound when compared to larger trucks, such as the [[Pounder]] and [[Phantom]].
The Securicar in its entirety may be a reference to two real-life security companies, which, coincidentally, would merge years after the introduction of the Securicar in the GTA series.
 
   
The name of the Securicar may be a pun on [[wp:G4S|Securicor]], a British security company that merged with Belgium-based security company ''Group 4 Falck'' in 2004 to form the infamous [[wp:G4S|Group 4 Securicor]] (now known simply as G4S). Renditions of the Securicar in GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories have "[[Gruppe Sechs]]" logos on the side, a German language pun on both the Group 4 company, and the term "group sex". In GTA IV, the fleet markings render the company name as "Gruppe 6", but the vehicle still features "Gruppe Sechs" decals in much smaller print on various surfaces. The GTA San Andreas rendition, however, substitutes all Gruppe Sechs markings with other security company brand names.

Latest revision as of 16:00, April 30, 2016


The Securicar and Stockade are armored bank trucks first introduced in Grand Theft Auto III, serving as the successor to the G4 Bank Van from Grand Theft Auto 2. The vehicle has appeared in every single game since then, with the only exception being Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is manufactured by Brute in the HD Universe.

DescriptionEdit

The Securicar is an armored truck, used to transport money, and in some missions, people (capable of carrying up to 4 occupants). Unlike in real life, the trucks are not bulletproof. It is, however, durable to heavy gunfire, and is now bulletproof to the player in GTA V.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The Securicar was initially designed with a heavy, robust truck-based body that is painted an overall dark blue. In Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the truck's design is based on that of a 1990s model GMC TopKick, with a thick defense on the front that protects the radiator and an agled design. In GTA III, if rear doors are removed, the player can see boxes of "loot" in the back. The Securicar in GTA Vice City also has a bulletproof windshield. These renditions of the Securicar have "Gruppe Sechs" logos on the sides and rear.

in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, however, it featured a radically different, somewhat smaller design, more reminiscent of real armored vans. This rendition assumes a completely different body design based on the International Harvester S-Series. The GTA San Andreas Securicar may be seen with the markings of Chuff Security (a lewd parody of real-life firm Chubb Security) or Lock and Load Security, or unmarked.

HD UniverseEdit

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Securicar, manufactured by Brute, is a larger vehicle with a realistic design, similar in shape to the GTA San Andreas rendition. The truck chassis is based on an armored International 4700 Series, but the front turning signals have been omitted. It is powered by a large, 8 liter (or 8000cc as seen on the badging for the vehicle) turbocharged engine. The cargo area has a similarly shaped roof to the GTA San Andreas rendition. The Securicar shares its basic chassis with the Enforcer and the Police Stockade. All these vans have a bulletproof windscreen, but the Securicar is rather unique with bulletproof side windows.

The GTA IV Securicar will spill a large amount of cash around it if blown up (usually containing between $500 and $2000), but doing so with weapons will immediately attract a 2 stars wanted level, regardless of where it is done. To avoid this, the player can use one of the car-bombs supplied by Patrick McReary (this is his friendship bonus) to blow up the car, or damage it enough while driving it that it will burst into flames and explode. The money that is ejected from the truck after explosion disappears faster than money dropped by pedestrians on the street. Also, there will always be money under the truck that the player will not be able to collect, apart of the subsequent fire that would burn the player.

A good way around this is to blow the truck up by either ramming it enough times until it catches fire in a parking garage on a lower level and run to the floor above to collect the cash, as none will be under the truck if using this method. This will be for a limited time (about 25 seconds).

In Grand Theft Auto V, the vehicle is renamed as Stockade. In random events, money is able to be stolen by blowing the back doors open, and generates $3000-$8000. Money can still be obtained by blowing up the Stockade if it spawns in traffic, though it rarely does. It is also found empty near banks, particularly in Legion Square and Hawick. Only if the blue dot appears in the radar, the Securicar contains money inside.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The truck is not generally recommended for anything other than regular street driving, as the uneven weight of the armor tends to flip the truck over even minor curves or hills. The Securicar in Vice City is the version least prone to flipping over in this universe. The Securicar in GTA Vice City however, can be used for escaping and breaking through SWAT roadblocks, as the heavy weight of the vehicle easily outweighs the Enforcer's weight ( 7000kg vs 4000kg [citation/verification needed]) although the vehicle needs a run-up in order to gain speed to break the roadblock.

In GTA: SA, the vehicle's performance differs slightly, but remains very undesirable. With its heavy weight, the Securicar's steering and braking fares poorly, in addition to a softer suspension which reduces stability when negotiating uneven turns. The vehicle does, however, have a slightly above-average top speed.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

The Securicar's handling and acceleration have been greatly enhanced, and it will no longer tip over when turning through corners. It is highly resistant to gunfire and everyday vehicle damage, but it is not explosion and/or fire-proof, and so can be destroyed by a grenade or single rocket. The Securicar is highly bulletproof against enemies, yet the player can destroy it quite quickly on the front area.

Stockade-GTAV-RSCStats

Performance Stats on Rockstar Games Social Club.

The GTA V Stockade has, comparably, the best performance of all the trucks in the game, with better acceleration, top speed, handling, and of course durability. As intended, the vehicle can sustain multiple impacts with and from traffic, and can resist gunfire with ease. The Stockade's endurance capabilities makes the Stockade one of the strongest cars in the game.

The engine model appears to be a twin-cam Inline 4, turbocharged, shared with many other trucks in the game. Despite this, the engine sounds to be somewhat similar to a high-revving Inline-6 diesel, creating a significantly smooth sound when compared to larger trucks, such as the Pounder and Phantom.

VariantsEdit

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • In the Prologue, a snow covered Stockade can be seen here, with the Bobcat Security livery on it, snow on the roof, tire chains and in a white color with a blue stripe. For some reason, there's a smile face marked on the left cargo window, as part of the snow effect.

LocationsEdit

Grand Theft Auto IIIEdit

Grand Theft Auto Vice CityEdit

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City StoriesEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City StoriesEdit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • Will appear as part of a Random Event in which the player can steal money being transported by a Stockade. The player can either attack the guards accompanying the car and steal the money directly from them, or blow off the back doors and steal the money from the Stockade itself. The player can then take the Stockade for themselves.
  • It will sometimes spawn randomly in traffic, outside of side missions.

Grand Theft Auto Online Edit

TriviaEdit

General Edit

  • Its name is both a combination of the words "Security" and "Car", as well as a reference to G4S, formerly known as Group 4 Securicor, a British security company that merged with Belgium-based security company Group 4 Falck in 2004 to form the infamous Group 4 Securicor (now known simply as G4S).
  • A vehicle resembling the 3D Universe Securicar (except SA) can be found in Rockstar North's Manhunt. This version belongs to a faction called Cerberus and it's longer than the GTA Securicar.
  • In GTA IV and GTA V, badges state that the truck has an impregnable armor and advise people "don't even think about it".
  • Only in GTA: SA and GTA V, a radio is present.

Grand Theft Auto IIIEdit

  • During one point of game development of GTA III, the Securicar was known as the Security Van.
  • The Securicar is the first vehicle seen in Grand Theft Auto III, thus making it the very first vehicle seen in the 3D Universe.
  • Securicars can be taken to a lockup at Portland Harbor for a sum of money. The starting reward is $5000 and decreases by $500 for each Securicar delivered, the garage will still accept the vehicle afterwards, but no reward will be given. 

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

  • The Securicar has no radio; the Police Scanner is added in its place.
  • As being associated with the LCPD, the player can pass through Tollbooths without paying.
  • In the texture file, there is text saying "Gruppe Sechs is licensed and authorized to use deadly force by the Liberty City Police Department". However, the occupants never spawn with weapons.
    • In the pedcomponents.img, the m_m_armoured.wtd file has Gruppe Sechs armed employees, but they are just used in Multiplayer missions. Is unknown why these are absent in story mode.
  • After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic, with the Securicar fetching $4,000.
  • The headlights of the car detach along with the hood, when the vehicle is damaged enough. However, they will work just like they were still in the vehicle. The same applies for vehicles with a similar hood configuration.
  • Although the Securicar has bulletproof windows, these can be broken by an explosion near the vehicle or by an Involuntary Ejection.

However, if driven on dirt or sand, or doing a drift, the player can see that it leaves tracks as if it has twin wheels (as evidenced by the 6 tracks it leaves behind when turning). This applies to the Ambulance and the police variants of the Securicar)

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

  • Like the Ammu-Nation Yankee from GTA CTW, both are guarded vehicles that can be robbed to obtain their cargo.
  • The horn was altered for the enhanced version. It can have multiple horns, randomized when entered.
  • In the loading screen, a unique beige armored truck showing the LSDS logo appears in an artwork. It seems to be a unique variant of the Stockade, although it is not present in-game.
  • The snow covered variant's dashboard gauges shows only the speedometer, but lacks the tachometer display, although the tachometer gauge moves when revving, and the radio display is different, taken from cars like the Tailgater and the Felon. This is due to the fact that it wasn't intended for use of the player.
  • Given that the Bobcat/Snow variant is named as 'stockade3' in the internal files, it is possible that there was to be a third variant of the Securicar in the game at some point in development.
