Packer was the security chief of International Electromatics and assisted Tobias Vaughn in his plans to aid the Cybermen in their invasion of Earth. He was very aggresive towards the Doctor and his freinds. Vaughn used him as a threat saying to the Professor he would give him Isobel if he did not comply. He comunicated with the other guards via a wrist communicator. He was shot and killed by a Cyberman when it invaded Vaughn's office. (DW: The Invasion)

From Grand Theft Wiki

A Packer in GTA Vice City.

The Packer is a car-carrying vehicle featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV.




GTA Vice City — GTA San Andreas

In GTA Vice City, the Packer could not transport vehicles, but in GTA San Andreas it can carry two or three, due to the ability to elevate part of the ramp. However, cars can still roll off at sudden stops or other sudden movements. The Packer can also be used as a stunt ramp. It is possible to safely store one car on the Packer in GTA San Andreas, due to its ability to move the upper ramp up and down; this is done by driving it onto the bottom ramp and slowly closing the top ramp down. If the ramp goes go too far down, however, the car will get crushed and explode. The player must have a good touch to keep the car safely in place. The Packer in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas bears a resemblance to the 1986 Peterbilt 379 Car Carrier.

The Packer is slow and hard to control due to its long body and wheelbase. But it can push small cars away and has fair brakes.


The Packer in GTA IV has a cab over engine design and is manufactured by MTL. In addition to the ramp that was available on previous versions of the Packer, it now comes with flatbed and tanker variations (the tanker's content is unknown). The ramp does not touch the ground so it can't be used for transporting cars or doing stunts. However, its shorter wheel base makes the truck slightly more maneuverable, but does not make up for its still poor speed. It is based on a Kenworth K-100.
