The Barracks OL takes its appearance from a real life M939 "5 ton" truck. The Barracks OL will appear on the streets if the player has a 6-star wanted level. When the vehicle appears, military officers will be seen driving the vehicles. The vehicle was first introduced in GTA III. The vehicle was very similar to a Flatbed truck, appearing with a different body color and modified bed design. The Barracks OL went under a few modifications after GTA III, but the vehicle still maintained its rugged, military-like design.
The Barracks OL can appear with three different types of bed design: uncovered, covered, or uncovered with framing. Despite the huge size of the vehicle and the seating in the back, the Barracks OL can only hold up to two people in the front.
From GTA Vice City and onwords, the player can activate the Vigilante side mission. Unlike other cop cars, the Barracks OL doesn't feature a siren or a strobe light. In GTA San Andreas, the Barracks OL has been modified with a siren, but no strobe light.
Despite the size, the vehicle is fast and much more lighter that a Flatbed. The vehicle has excellent ramming power and braking. The vehicle has all-wheel drive, but the vehicle can easily get stuck in ragged terrain. Like other vehicles, the Barracks OL will explode if it collides into a Rhino. The top speed is average but the acceleration is somewhat good.
