The G4 Bank Van is an armored vehicle in Grand Theft Auto 2
The G4 Bank Van is apparently an armored van implied to be used by banks to transport valuable goods, and as such, appears with a heavy truck-like construction with a well encased rear cargo compartment. The vehicles comes in only two colors in game: Blue or green. The van features front doors for the cab, as well as back door behind the vehicle.
Being bulky, the G4 Bank Van's performance is less than impressive, with a low top speed but an average acceleration to compensate and a wide turning radius. However, as an armored vehicle, the G4 Bank Van can sustain a higher-than-usual amount of gunfire, and is even known to survive two direct Rocket Launcher hits if still in perfect condition. Being too large, the G4 Bank Van cannot be crushed.
Ray Larabie's early design of the G4 Bank Van.
- The name of the armored van is suggestively named after real-life security firm Group 4, which later merged with another security firm in 2004. The Securicar, the G4 Bank Van's successor, is also named as such for similar reasons (see Securicar article for details).
- The G4 Bank Van is commonplace in GTA 2, appearing in the Downtown, Residential and Industrial Districts of Anywhere City.
