More Information
The San Andreas Armed Services were the main military force of San Andreas. Stationed at numerous bases, SAAS was initially tasked with international relations along with the Department of Defense and Federal Bureau of Investigation. From August 2012 through to September 2017, SAAS was tasked with the security of state produced armaments, supplying them to various government organisations that required them. Although a rare occurrence, SAAS was known for conducting capture missions alongside the FBI.

The Sanchez was used for fast transport around the base. It was available to anyone but wasn't allowed to be taken away from the main base.

Division: None
LVPD Cruiser
The LVPD Cruiser was, for a while, a general purpose vehicle. The vehicle wasn't restricted to a particular rank or division and was able to be used for the general mobility of soldiers - usually from the Department of Defense building. The cruiser was often found in a hangar along KSBA or the DoD building in Commerce.
Rank: Private
Division: None
Barracks
The Barracks was largely used for transporting troops and was used heavily in the battles of Red County and Tierra Robada.
