RUNE (Russian: РУНА) is a Russian/Soviet automobile and submarine manufacturer in the HD Universe, introduced in the continuation of the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series update.


RUNE appears to be primarily based on LADA, since its name, logo and its first vehicle, the Cheburek are based on, or take influence from LADA. It also appears to take secondary influence from the all-terrain manufacturer Sherp, due to the appearance of the Zhaba added in the continuation of The Diamond Casino Heist content update in 2020.

  • With the introduction of the Kosatka, it was pinpointed that RUNE has been active since at least the late-Soviet era (pre-1991).
  • The logo of RUNE resembles the carved hull of a Norse longship; this is a reference to LADA’s logo.
  • The name Rune may refer to a Germanic alphabet used in central and northern Europe in the 2nd century. This is probably a reference to the fact that the first Russian state was formed by Vikings.
