Please put all your wishes, guesses and suggestions on our dedicated [[Community:GTA V Wishlist|GTA 5 Wishlist]]
This article is for official news, real proof and significant rumours only.}} I think this is an irrelevant page until GTA V (if that's what it's called) is officially announced. And whoever posted that link (edit: Chip2007), did you read the description? He even says it is GTA SA with some mods. --[[User:Aussiebushmatt|Aussiebushmatt]] 17:18, 11 August 2008 (UTC) :You are correct, this page should not exist. I have deleted it until we have SOME information to go on. [[User:Gboyers|User:Gboyers]] [[User_talk:Gboyers|talk]] 18:03, 11 August 2008 (UTC) :::when i hear definate proof from rockstar i will add it. but considering the time frame of the gta games it wont be soon [[User:Chip2007]] ::::Of course. I presume there will be a few 'GTA IV-era' games before GTA V comes our way. Well, until then! --[[User:Aussiebushmatt|Aussiebushmatt]] 18:50, 11 August 2008 (UTC) Looking t the sheer difference in scale btw GTA IV and GTA III, I cant wait to go home to San Andreas. Can you say "GTA-Oblivion"! --[[User:Sukhoi35BM|Sukhoi35BM]] :As mentioned earlier, there is no source to prove the title of the next game, and everything that is written in the article. I do not think it was a new game will begin soon. None of the previous eras occurred in only one city. One could argue about the next game for home consoles, but does not mention a title without sources. In my opinion this article should be deleted until a trusted source, such as Rockstar, for example. [[User:Eduardo Sellan Brazilian|Eduardo Sellan Brazilian]], 01:06, February 19, 2010 ::I agree. This wiki is about facts, not fiction or assumption. -- [[User:Master Sima Yi|Master Sima Yi]] 13:37, April 27, 2010 (UTC :::Yeah, I say go ahead and delete it. Interesting factoid about the Episodes from Liberty City booklet, though. --[[User:PsychoDuck|PsychoDuck]] 01:11, May 3, 2010 (UTC) well i dont think it should be deleted i think it should be moved to the gta 5 wishlist instead. == GTA uses roman numericals... == Move the page to Grand Theft Auto V. --[[User:Insane Survivor|Insane!]] 15:48, August 24, 2010 (UTC) :[[Grand Theft Auto 2|GTA 2]] didn't use roman numerals. There's nothing to suggest it would be called five/5/V either - it might just be 'GTA IV London' or 'GTA Vice City 2' or 'GTA London 2012'. At this stage, the number format doesn't really matter, so long as people can find this page and understand what it means. There are some people that will get misread GTA V as GTA IV, or not understand that it means 5. This is just a simpler option until we have something more concrete. Does that work for you? [[User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] [[User_talk:Gboyers|talk]] 17:51, August 24, 2010 (UTC) Yes, understood. --[[User:Insane Survivor|Insane!]] 23:12, August 24, 2010 (UTC) == Multiplayer? ==
The HVY Brickade (internally named Avan, likely an abbreviation of armored van) is an armored van in The Ballad of Gay Tony. The van is notable in the game for being normally inaccessible in gameplay, and as a result, can only be accessed via modding, hacking or specialized savegames.
It is unknown why the Brickade is not used in the game.
The Brickade is roughly based on a Prosegur armored car, similar to the Securicar (which interestingly bears a similar "Stockade" badge), but adopts a cab-over design, a beige bodywork and much smaller wheels. In addition to a thick body shell, the Brickade is also equipped with plating that protects the front radiator grill, as well as steel mesh grating covering the front windscreen and wheel wells (which does not actually protect the Brickade's tires from gunfire). The Brickade is implied to be associated with the police, as it has a police radio and the ability to pass through tollbooths without paying. However, unlike most police vehicles, the Brickade can use a Pay 'n' Spray. Although it bears no badging, police chatter implies the Brickade is manufactured by HVY. Despite it having two doors in the front and two doors in the back like the Stockades, it can only fit two people in it as the back doors are not programed to open and fit people in the back like the stockades can, they will only open upon heavy impact. This is because the Brickade is a unfinished project which will make it notible for missing a few details.
Given its armored construction and subsequently heavy weight, the Brickade's performance is as expected for a vehicle of its class.
The Brickade suffers from poor speed on average due to poor acceleration, but can reach slightly above average top speeds after uninterrupted and prolonged acceleration. Its steering also varies; due to its shorter wheelbase, strong torque and rear wheel drive, the van can execute tight turns in low speeds, but this trait is hampered as the vehicle travels in higher speeds and increases its inertia. Similarly, its brakes are reliable when the vehicle travels slower, but requires a moderately longer stopping distance when braking in higher speed (although they still fare better than those of the Ripley). Regardless, the Brickade's heavy weight allows it to push smaller and lighter vehicles out of the way with ease.
The Brickade is also considerably hardened to handle selected forms of damage to an extent, to the same degree as the Enforcer, Police Stockade and Securicar. The vehicle can absorb large amounts of gunfire, but will eventually succumb to engine damage, especially when it is shot at its weakest point in the front, where the engine is. The Brickade can also survive six direct hits from explosive shotgun rounds (at any part of the vehicle) before its gas tank ignites and results in the vehicle exploding (three times the amount of a regular car).
- The Brickade shares the same engine sound and interior with the Ripley.
- Despite featuring a meshed frontal windscreen, the player can still be thrown through the Brickade's windscreen in a high-speed collision.
- When exploded after suffering heavy damage, the actual bodywork of the Brickade is only slightly charred (although generic parts, such as its wheels, lights and interior are severely burnt), unlike other vehicles in GTA IV.
- The Brickade was originally going to be featured in multiplayer. It could be used in roadblocks for the bridges at a 6-star wanted level only in Free Mode and was to also be found on the streets.
- One possible reason Rockstar removed it is because in the game files it says that firemen were to drive it, then once it was fixed it would not spawn at all. Rockstar may have decided it would be better to remove it.
- The Brickade is the most durable front engined vehicle in the GTA IV Era.
