GUN Military Truck
Appearances in other media
A giant black and grey military truck owned by G.U.N.
GUN Military Truck is a vehicle that appears in the . It is a military truck belonging to Sonic the Hedgehog series G.U.N. which was sent after Sonic the Hedgehog when he escaped from the military's captivity after being accused of stealing a Chaos Emerald.
The truck appears during gameplay in the
Stages where it serves as a moving and dangerous obstacle that will pursue Sonic relentlessly for a period of time.
The GUN Military Truck resembles a colossal
Mack Superliner and/or GMC General, being as wide as a two-way street and as tall as a small building. It is predominantly grey and black with a heavily armored exterior, has the "GUN" emblem written on the front and possesses an equally large semi-trailer with the symbol of G.U.N. on the sides. In Sonic Generations, the GUN Military Truck was given a slight update in design, possessing more refined details and armor, as well as an extra set of seats with its own windshield set just above the main one, but otherwise remained much the same.
Features and abilities
The GUN Military Truck keeping up with Sonic's speed.
The GUN Military Truck is a quite powerful and durable vehicle, capable of running over cars and entire apartments buildings without slowing down. It is also very fast despite its size, being able to keep up with Sonic's running speed and can make extremely sharp hairpin turns at top speed. It is
later shown to have additional features, such as three massive circular saws on extendable arms protruding from the top of its cab, rocket boosters that allow it to fly, and storage compartments for deploying various GUN robots.
Sonic Adventure 2
The GUN Military Truck in
. Sonic Adventure 2
The GUN Military Truck's debut appearance was in
and later its remake, Sonic Adventure 2 . It can only be encountered in Sonic Adventure 2: Battle City Escape. Here, it was sent to recapture Sonic after he escaped from the military's custody.
The GUN Military Truck will appear behind Sonic after passing the last
Point Marker in City Escape. From there, the GUN Military Truck will chase Sonic down through a section of the Stage where the camera angle has been turned 180 degrees. During the chase, the truck will slow if Sonic slows down too, though it will not stop pursuing him. Touching the GUN Military Truck will damage the player, and the truck itself in indestructible, meaning the player has to keep avoiding it until they reach the end of the chase where the GUN Military Truck will crash into a brick overpass. In Hard Mode for City Escape, the GUN Military Truck will move faster and is less forgiving. It is also notably infamous for destroying/plowing over several of the parked cars in its path.
In the console/
PC version of , the GUN Military Truck appears as a part of the remade version of Sonic Generations City Escape. It appears in both Act 1 and Act 2 of the Stage where it serves as an obstacle to the player. Like in Sonic Adventure 2, the truck is indestructible and will damage the player if they touch it.
In City Escape Act 1, the GUN Military Truck continues its role of perusing
Classic Sonic, but varies so from two different angles. Here, it will either pursue the player through different sections or move towards the player from somewhere in the background at certain points in the Act, where it can both damage the player and destroy platforms, thus eliminating nearby shortcuts that the player can take. This can be avoided if the player uses the platforms before the truck destroys them. At the end of the Act, the GUN Military Truck will again pursue Classic Sonic on platforms, which serve like laddars for the player, and try to mow them down frequently, only to crash into a bridge support beam at the Goal Plate. When it first appears by smashing through a house, it is in mint condition, but when it reappears following the skateboard portion of the Act, it looks to be in really bad shape as it is covered in dents and the tires are shredded. Not to mention driving more recklessly with almost toppling over at some points with how the trailer swings out when the truck makes a sharp turn. When it lands for the final chase before hitting the bridge support, it is smoking badly from several places around the cab and the smokestacks are about ready to fall off. The collision with the bridge support pretty much finishes off the truck with demolishing it completely as it lies on its side during the final point tally.
The GUN Military Truck chasing
In City Escape Act 2, the GUN Military Truck is encountered in the way as it was in
Sonic Adventure 2. However, the truck is faster and more determined about pursuing Modern Sonic here, and appears to have been fully repaired from the Classic Sonic pursuit in Act 1 as it is in mint condition again and armed with new equipment to handle Modern Sonic. The player encounters it near the end of the Act and has to outrun it, with the camera angle having been turned 180 degrees during the chase. However, in addition to pursuing Modern Sonic, the GUN Military Truck will also use three saw-blades that emerge from the trailer to attack from afar, which the player can avoid by moving to the side while the truck is preparing them. Near the end of the chasing section, it will reveal its rocket boosters after retracting the saw blades back into the trailer to charge after Modern Sonic on a vertical wall. It is ultimately defeated after it crashes into a large building, causing it to explode before it gets the chance of touching him, ending its threat permanently.
The GUN Military Truck can also be seen amongst the floating debris during the battle with the
Time Eater in the console/PC version of Sonic Generations.
In other media
The GUN Military Truck in the Archie Comics.
The GUN Military Truck makes a small appearance in the
comic series and its spin-off comic series published by Sonic the Hedgehog Archie Comics as a part of the comics' adaption of . It has only appeared in Sonic Adventure 2 , where Sonic the Hedgehog #98 Sonic ran into the GUN Military Truck and had to flee from it after escaping from Paladin Team Sigma-Alpha 2.
The emblem on the vehicle is a texture that reads "GUN Military Truck".
The way the GUN Military Truck tries to kill the player is quite similar to how an Orca tries to kill Sonic in Emerald Coast in .
Coincidentally, Sonic is chased by something in both Sonic Adventure and in the first stage of both games.
Sonic Adventure 2 It is possible the GUN Military Truck was originally a soldier transportation unit, as it deploys robots for Sonic to fight in City Escape Act 1 in Sonic Generations.
It is possible to outrun the GUN Military Truck in City Escape Act 1 in Sonic Generations by using the Spin Dash quickly.
A vehicle resembling the GUN Military Truck appears in issue 19 of IDW Publishing's comic series.
