Design and Performance


The design of the Barracks Semi in GTA V is derived from the Barracks military vehicle and adapted as a semi-truck. It features a rear section specifically designed to attach trailers. The overall body shape, grille attachments, and color scheme closely resemble the M915A5 Tractor Trailer.

The cab design is shared with the transport variant of the Barracks, while the rear section appears to be reused from the Packer semi-truck, but with a desert brown color to match its military theme. The rear lamps are similar to those found on other semi-trucks in the game, with the exception of the Docktug. However, unlike other semis, the Barracks Semi does not have a spare tire mounted behind the cabin.

Interior of the Barracks Semi


The Barracks Semi offers better handling, turning, and acceleration compared to similar vehicles, including its trooper counterpart, the Barracks. It provides excellent stability and is easy to control. However, its brakes are less responsive, requiring more time to come to a complete stop even at lower speeds. The Barracks Semi has the capability to tow trailers at higher speeds than regular semi tractors.

While it can easily perform burnouts, it is unable to do donuts on pavement, possibly due to its double rear axle and oversized front wheels. However, it can perform slow donuts on dirt surfaces.


Strangely, despite being a transport variant, the Barracks Semi is 1000 kg heavier than its passenger transporter counterpart. It is equipped with an inline-4 turbocharged engine and a 5-speed gearbox, following a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.

Trivia

  • The Barracks Semi has two of its own trailers that are never seen being pulled: a tanker trailer and a large flatbed trailer.

  • Unlike its cousin, the truck is named HVY Barracks Semi, showing the manufacturer. However, it reveals that the transport variant is evidently an HVY Barracks.
