"This was built for one thing, and one thing only. If you want to get anywhere quickly, you're in the wrong place. If you want to go off-road, look elsewhere. If you want something inconspicuous, move right along. But if your heart's desire is to stay very still while you launch enough heat-seeking missiles to reignite the Cold War, then buckle up. The Chernobog is very, very news indeed

Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Chernobog is a military artillery truck featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Doomsday Heist update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Chernobog is a ballistic missile launcher truck strongly based on the MAZ-543M, but replaces the BM-30 Smerch rocket system with a 15-tube launch pod (which uses a standard box-shaped framing). It is the first vehicle to adopt a 4-axle design.

The truck features red stars around it, which, as with the V-65 Molotok, indicates it is a Russian Military vehicle, although the black, red, and yellow colored lines on the side could also hint at an East Germany origin. It has a tow hitch on the rear end, but this does not function. The cab is positioned on the left-hand side of the vehicle. Similar to helicopters such as the Savage and Akula, the driver sits in the front section of the cabin, and the rocket operator sits in the rear section.

The interior of the truck is basically green, as with other Russian vehicles in the game, such as the V-65 Molotok and the RM-10 Bombushka, along with the corresponding truck analog dials. The rear cabin also features a computer that is identical to those used by the Bombushka and the Volatol.

The Chernobog has decent speed for a truck of its size and is very maneuverable at low speeds, thanks to its all-wheel steering system, but generally has sluggish handling at higher speeds, as it often struggles to drive straight after turning. Its large size and huge weight also ensure that most vehicles hit by the Chernobog will often get crushed and explode causing damage, a problem shared with the Rhino. The ground clearance provides decent capability to sort uneven terrain, though the sheer size may become a problem when passing through areas where sharp turns are required. The Chernobogs durability is above average. it can take around 4 direct hits from an explosion before the engine catches fire. Its engine sound is the same as the Phantom Custom and Hauler Custom.

Its notable feature is a "lockdown" mode, where the truck is slightly raised up by four stands found between the four wheel groups, which enables the rocket system on the back, at the expense of being static, so the driver cannot move the vehicle unless the lockdown mode is deactivated, rendering the missile launcher unusable.


The rocket system can fire up to five rockets, either independently or in a quick burst. After that, the system takes four seconds to reload the tubes and fire the next row. As with the Anti-Aircraft Trailer with missile option, the weapon requires manual targeting to use the homing rockets and takes almost the same time to lock on a target.

The lock-on range of missiles reaches to an excessively high 1000 meter according to the game file (the same as the effective range of Marksman Rifle) and the guidance capability of missiles will even stress experienced pilots in P-996 LAZER. This makes the Chernobog an excellent anti-air vehicle, but the limited effective angle of the rocket system (at 45-50 degrees) will leave the Chernobog vulnerable if the aircraft is directly above.

  • Chernobog is a Slavic deity, whose name means black god. Certain historical sources interpret him as a dark, accursed god from the Slavic mythology.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Although the Chernobog lacks a manufacturer in-game, the patch notes from the Rockstar Support page states it is manufactured by HVY.
    • The Savage and Akula both also lack a manufacturer in game. This is most likely due to the fact that they are Russian in origin and no in-game Russian manufacturer exists.
  • Behind the driver seat there is an second seat for a passenger that can not be used. This hints that the Chernobog may have been able to support more passengers prior to its release.
