The '''Yankee''' is a large commercial truck that is featured in both [[3D Universe]] and [[HD Universe]]. It is manufactured by [[Vapid]] in the HD Universe.
   
The [[Vapid]] '''Yankee''' is a large straight commercial truck that is featured in:

* [[Grand Theft Auto III]]

In all of its appearances, the Yankee is depicted as a box truck with a long wheelbase and a large cab with room for 2 occupants, including the driver. Like many industrial vehicles, the Yankee has a changing "skin", along with a random paint job. This means that the Yankee will have a random company logo printed on the side of the truck. Its usually one of the most common trucks in the game (along with the [[Mule]]).

== Description ==
+
===3D Universe===
First introduced in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], the Yankee was predominantly designed to be one of the largest [[File:Yankee_badges.png|thumb]]straight-trucks available in the games, with a boxed cargo compartment (which, by [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], would contain actual cargo). The Yankee's size and weight often contributes to its poor cornering, poor acceleration and poor hill-climbing abilities, but may achieve decent speed on a straightaway (112 mph.) The performance and appearances of the Yankee are also slightly different between renditions in GTA III and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories|GTA Liberty City Stories]], and other GTA games it is featured in. For renditions in GTA Vice City, [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|GTA San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories|GTA Vice City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto IV|GTA IV]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars|GTA Chinatown Wars]], the Yankee features an extended cargo hold that also results in poorer acceleration and steering. As with any two-door truck, the Yankee only has room for 2 occupants, including the driver. The Yankee in GTA IV is manufactured by [[Vapid]]
+
First introduced in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'', the Yankee was predominantly designed to be one of the largest straight-trucks available in the games, with a boxed cargo compartment (which, by ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', would contain actual cargo).The Yankee is loosely based on the [http://www.tinyurl.com/FordF700 Ford F700]. The Yankee retained its design on almost every 3D Universe game, with the exception of a few details on the rear door, as well as a line on the cab doors on the Vice City renditions of the vehicle. For renditions in ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'', the Yankee has an extended cargo hold, being slighty larger than in the games set in [[Liberty City (3D Universe)|Liberty City]].
   
The Yankee is generally useless due to its performance and susceptibility to rollovers on rough terrain and it has no special features, expect that it may be used as a moving "staircase". The player can jump on the hood, and then to the roof, and then to the container. This can be very useful to reach high places, like hidden packages and weapons, even Easter eggs.
+
===HD Universe===
  +
The ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' rendition assumes the design of an [[wp:International Harvester S-Series|1980's International Harvester S-Series]]/[[wp:GMC Topkick|1980's GMC Topkick]]. While it is not as large as the 3D Universe version, it's noticeably taller and bigger than before. This truck seems heavier than before, resulting in a strong bodywork like most Box trucks in the game (considering than most box trucks are also bigger than in their previous appearances, like the [[Benson]] and the [[Mule]]). This rendition of the truck sometimes comes with an additional refrigeration unit mounted over the truck cab.
   
The Yankee prior to GTA IV is loosely based on the [http://www.tinyurl.com/FordF700 Ford F700]. The GTA IV rendition assumes the design of an [[wp:International Harvester S-Series|1980's International Harvester S-Series]]/[[wp:GMC Topkick|1980's GMC Topkick]].
+
For ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]'', the truck seems to be a combination between the 3D Universe model and the ''GTA IV'' model (judging by the lack of an air conditioning unit and a stripe on the cab), which will appear with almost the same liveries as in ''GTA IV''.

==Performance==
===Open bed Yankee===
+
The Yankee is generally useless due to its performance and susceptibility to rollovers on rough terrain and it has no special features, except that it may be used as a moving "staircase". The player can jump on the hood, and then to the roof, and then to the container. This can be very useful to reach high places, like hidden packages and weapons, even Easter eggs.
[[Image:Yankee-TLAD-openbed-front.jpg|thumb|275px|left|The open bed Yankee during "[[Liberty City Choppers (mission)|Liberty City Choppers]]" in The Lost and Damned (<small>[[:Image:Yankee-TLAD-openbed-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]</small>).]]
 
   
In [[The Lost and Damned]], an open bed Yankee, the only one of its kind in the series, is featured. While its chassis and cab design is still derived from the [[GTA IV]] Yankee's design, the open bed Yankee is also distinguishable by it weathered design (complete with dents and rough bodywork), and comes in only one color scheme (gray with white stripes). The open bed Yankee is also considerably more nimble and faster given its lighter build.
+
===3D Universe===
  +
The Yankee's size and weight often contributes to its poor cornering, poor acceleration and poor hill-climbing abilities, but may achieve decent speed on a straightaway. The performance and appearances of the Yankee are also slightly different between renditions in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]''.
   
In single player mode, the open bed Yankee is only featured during "[[Liberty City Choppers (mission)|Liberty City Choppers]]" as a transport for a load of motorcycles. Upon completion of the mission, the player loses the truck; the player is thus required to intentionally fail the mission by killing the accompanying [[Jim Fitzgerald]] or killing themselves after parking the truck at a safehouse parking lot. If this trick is performed while the truck is full of bikes they will remain in it, however they won't be interactive.
+
===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
  +
While the truck retains most of the properties from the 3D Universe renditions, the Yankee seems powerful to ram small vehicles thanks to its slight changes in terms of speed, as well as a slighty better handling due to the short wheelbase, but is still a difficult vehicle to drive. The suspension is good to sort uneven terrains, but its heavy weight makes it a poor choice off-road, where the truck's wheels spins too much while travelling on dirt. Rollovers are a big issue, likely for its suspension and its large size.
   
In [[Multiplayer in The Lost and Damned|multiplayer]], the open bed Yankee is available in the [[Club Business]], during which it is used to transport two [[Nightblade]]s around the [[Liberty City (HD Universe)|city]], and is instructed to be stolen.

=== Ammu-Nation Yankee ===
+
===''The Lost and Damned''===
[[Image:Yankee-GTACW-AmmuNation.png|thumb|180px|right|An "Ammu-Nation" Yankee in GTA Chinatown Wars.]]
+
For ''[[The Lost and Damned]]'', however, the special open bed variant of the Yankee has been drastically changed over its box truck counterpart. Most of the issues mentioned above are almost reduced, while retaining its capacity to ram small vehicles. This Yankee is considerably faster. Acceleration and top speed are increased, weight is reduced and handling is nimble and responsive. While it's still a bad choice for off-roading, wheel spins are less noticeable than the first version, given its lighter build.
   
A variant of the Yankee in GTA Chinatown Wars, also known simply as the "Yankee", bears an [[Ammu-Nation]] livery. The Ammu-Nation Yankee only begins appearing on the streets after "[[Pimp His Ride]]", when the player gains access to [[AmmuNation.net]]. The truck is identifiable by its red, white and blue color, as well as a visible blue star on the roof of the cargo compartment and [[Ammu-Nation|Ammu-Nation's]] rocket-shaped logo on the sides. Performance is otherwise similar to a regular Yankee. Being a large truck, this variant of the Yankee cannot be resprayed or repaired; neither can the player save the truck in the garage under normal circumstances.
+
All these improvements makes the Yankee one of the fastest industrial trucks in the game, and can be used to perform burnouts and "donuts", thanks to its engine output.
   
The [[Ammu-Nation]] Yankee typically contains a [[Weapons|weapon]]'s cache for a specific weapon that can be acquired through the theft of the vehicle; however, the truck is locked as long as the driver is inside, so players must resort to damaging the truck until the driver exits. From this point on, players may acquire the truck and drive it to a secluded [[Safehouses in GTA Chinatown Wars|safehouse]]; killing the [[Shotgun|shotgun]]-armed and well armored driver is optional. Once at a [[safehouse]], players will automatically exit the truck, and may weld open the cargo hold for their reward. The truck will remain locked thereafter.

== Variants ==
* The Yankee is the only vehicle that has been proven to work with [[False Idols|a mission]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories|GTA Liberty City Stories]], where the player may obtain a [[Maverick]] without using any third party trainer programs. The mission [[File:Yankee_sign_4.png|thumb|Graffiti tags.]]requires the use of the "perfect handling" cheat to be activated, thus giving the truck a jumping capability. Using this the player can use the truck, make it jump on the building, and steal the helicopter.<ref>[http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=263932 Getting the Maverick - GTAForums.com]</ref>
+
In GTA IV, the Yankee comes in seven variants. The plain Yankee is by far the least common. The other six variants differ only by the logos on the sides. They are [[Sprunk]], [[Liberty State Delivery]], [[Redwood Cigarettes]], [[ECola]], [[Pisswasser]], and [[Binco]]. The ECola, Pisswasser, and Binco variants all have a cooling apparatus above the cab, while the Sprunk variant, interestingly enough, does not. The Sprunk variant also appears to be worn down.
* Like many industrial vehicles, the Yankee has a changing "skin", along with a random paint job. This means that the Yankee will have a random company logo printed on the side of the truck.
+
* In [[GTA Vice City]], [[GTA San Andreas]], and [[GTA Vice City Stories]], if the player breaks off the rear shutter, it is possible to see the contents of the truck. For example, a fish truck will be carrying crates [[File:Yankee_sign_1.png|thumb|Graffiti tags.]]of fish, a butcher truck will be carrying meat, etc. However, plain trucks tend to be empty.

The Yankee is a large commercial truck that is featured in both 3D Universe and HD Universe. It is manufactured by Vapid in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

In all of its appearances, the Yankee is depicted as a box truck with a long wheelbase and a large cab with room for 2 occupants, including the driver. Like many industrial vehicles, the Yankee has a changing "skin", along with a random paint job. This means that the Yankee will have a random company logo printed on the side of the truck. Its usually one of the most common trucks in the game (along with the Mule).

3D UniverseEdit

First introduced in Grand Theft Auto III, the Yankee was predominantly designed to be one of the largest straight-trucks available in the games, with a boxed cargo compartment (which, by Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, would contain actual cargo).The Yankee is loosely based on the Ford F700. The Yankee retained its design on almost every 3D Universe game, with the exception of a few details on the rear door, as well as a line on the cab doors on the Vice City renditions of the vehicle. For renditions in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Yankee has an extended cargo hold, being slighty larger than in the games set in Liberty City.

HD UniverseEdit

The Grand Theft Auto IV rendition assumes the design of an 1980's International Harvester S-Series/1980's GMC Topkick. While it is not as large as the 3D Universe version, it's noticeably taller and bigger than before. This truck seems heavier than before, resulting in a strong bodywork like most Box trucks in the game (considering than most box trucks are also bigger than in their previous appearances, like the Benson and the Mule). This rendition of the truck sometimes comes with an additional refrigeration unit mounted over the truck cab.

For Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the truck seems to be a combination between the 3D Universe model and the GTA IV model (judging by the lack of an air conditioning unit and a stripe on the cab), which will appear with almost the same liveries as in GTA IV.

Version History GalleryEdit

PerformanceEdit

The Yankee is generally useless due to its performance and susceptibility to rollovers on rough terrain and it has no special features, except that it may be used as a moving "staircase". The player can jump on the hood, and then to the roof, and then to the container. This can be very useful to reach high places, like hidden packages and weapons, even Easter eggs.

3D UniverseEdit

The Yankee's size and weight often contributes to its poor cornering, poor acceleration and poor hill-climbing abilities, but may achieve decent speed on a straightaway. The performance and appearances of the Yankee are also slightly different between renditions in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

While the truck retains most of the properties from the 3D Universe renditions, the Yankee seems powerful to ram small vehicles thanks to its slight changes in terms of speed, as well as a slighty better handling due to the short wheelbase, but is still a difficult vehicle to drive. The suspension is good to sort uneven terrains, but its heavy weight makes it a poor choice off-road, where the truck's wheels spins too much while travelling on dirt. Rollovers are a big issue, likely for its suspension and its large size.

The Lost and DamnedEdit

For The Lost and Damned, however, the special open bed variant of the Yankee has been drastically changed over its box truck counterpart. Most of the issues mentioned above are almost reduced, while retaining its capacity to ram small vehicles. This Yankee is considerably faster. Acceleration and top speed are increased, weight is reduced and handling is nimble and responsive. While it's still a bad choice for off-roading, wheel spins are less noticeable than the first version, given its lighter build.

All these improvements makes the Yankee one of the fastest industrial trucks in the game, and can be used to perform burnouts and "donuts", thanks to its engine output.

Variants Edit

In GTA IV, the Yankee comes in seven variants. The plain Yankee is by far the least common. The other six variants differ only by the logos on the sides. They are Sprunk, Liberty State Delivery, Redwood Cigarettes, ECola, Pisswasser, and Binco. The ECola, Pisswasser, and Binco variants all have a cooling apparatus above the cab, while the Sprunk variant, interestingly enough, does not. The Sprunk variant also appears to be worn down.

Open bed YankeeEdit

In The Lost and Damned, an open bed Yankee, the only one of its kind in the series, is featured. While its chassis and cab design is still derived from the GTA IV Yankee's design, the open bed Yankee is also distinguishable by it weathered design (complete with dents and rough bodywork), and comes in only one color scheme (gray with white stripes).

Ammu-Nation Yankee Edit

A variant of the Yankee in GTA Chinatown Wars bears an Ammu-Nation livery. The truck is identifiable by its red, white and blue color, as well as a visible blue star on the roof of the cargo compartment and Ammu-Nation's rocket-shaped logo on the sides. Performance is otherwise similar to a regular Yankee. Being a large truck, this variant of the Yankee cannot be resprayed or repaired; neither can the player save the truck in the garage under normal circumstances. The cargo can be collected by the player.

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 IV + Episodes from Liberty CityEdit

  • The player drives one during the mission Harbouring a Grudge for Patrick McReary, although the player can park it at a safehouse, kill Packie, and redo the mission.
  • Spawned in scripted traffic during the missions "Bleed Out", "Ivan The Not So Terrible", and "If the Price is Right". However, taking one will likely cause mission failure.
  • It rarely can be found in commercial/industrial areas such as BOABO, (Broker), Cerveza Heights (Dukes), and Northwood (Algonquin), Liberty City.
  • Spawns in an industrial yard north on Tinderbox Avenue in Tudor, Alderney; near Honkers. It is parked just behind the blue covered boxes in (if you do go there and it does not spawn go a small distance away from that location and return back). Also, there is another location where it spawns, it is just around the same building next to a steel support structure. Be careful with this one, because if the player touches it, the truck may eventually moves as it was stuck somewhere and "jumps" over the place. The same will be stuck due to the rollover or damaging the player if falls over the same.
  • The open bed Yankee is only featured during "Liberty City Choppers", as a transport for a load of motorcycles. Upon completion of the mission, the truck dissapears of the scene and is no longer seen. The player is thus required to intentionally fail the mission by killing the accompanying Jim Fitzgerald or killing themselves after parking the truck at a safehouse parking lot. If this trick is performed while the truck is full of bikes, they will remain in it. However, they won't be interactive.
  • In multiplayer, the open bed Yankee is available in the Club Business, during which it is used to transport two Nightblades around the city, and is instructed to be stolen.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown WarsEdit

  • The standard Yankees are relatively common around Star Junction in Algonquin, as well as around the Cerveza Heights Medical Center in Dukes.
  • The Ammu-Nation Yankee starts to appear on the streets after "Pimp His Ride". It typically contains a weapon's cache for a specific weapon that can be acquired through the theft of the vehicle. However, the truck is locked as long as the driver is inside, so players must resort to damaging the truck until the driver exits. From this point on, players may acquire the truck and drive it to a secluded safehouse; killing the shotgun-armed and well armored driver is optional. Once at a safehouse, players will automatically exit the truck, and may weld open the cargo hold for their reward. The truck will remain locked thereafter.

Trivia Edit

GeneralEdit

Clean up This article or section needs to be cleaned up to meet the standards of GTA Wiki
Default radio stations in GTA III, VC, LCS and VSC.
Sanitary
  • The Yankee plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The Yankee has appeared in other Rockstar games: a white Yankee with a dirty blue cargo hold can be found parked in an industrial yard in Bully, while Yankees appear in both Manhunt and Manhunt 2. In all of these appearances, however, it is non-interactive.
  • Yankee is a slang term for an American.
  • The Truck could be named after the professional baseball team, the New York Yankees.
  • In GTA Vice CityGTA San Andreas, and GTA Vice City Stories, if the player breaks off the rear shutter, it is possible to see the contents of the truck. For example, a fish truck will be carrying crates of fish, a butcher truck will be carrying meat, etc. However, plain trucks tend to be empty.
  • The Trashmaster shares its cab with that of the Yankee in GTA VC, GTA SA and GTA VCS.

Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasEdit

  • The Yankee appears to have the wrong engine sound which is probably intended for the Benson, and thus sounds like a smaller truck.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City StoriesEdit

  • The Yankee is the only vehicle that has been proven to work with a mission, where the player may obtain a Maverick without using any third party trainer programs. The mission requires the use of the "perfect handling" cheat to be activated, thus giving the truck a jumping capability. Using this the player can use the truck, make it jump on the building, and steal the helicopter.[1]

Grand Theft Auto IV and episodesEdit

  • The Yankee lacks reverse lights in GTA IV.
  • The GTA IV version of the Yankee has a glitch. When spawned, it may be pretty fast, but when repaired it at a Pay 'n' Spray (or use the heal pack on Multiplayer), for some strange reason, it makes it much slower.
  • Is possible to carry a small vehicle like a Rhapsody on the back of an open bed Yankee in TLAD. However, it may result in a weight increase and a constant damage on the rear border.
