In Mercs 1, the Forklift is not featured and was cut from the game before release, though an entry for it still exists in the Prima official game guide.
In the PS2 version of Mercs 2 it is used by civilians to lift heavy cargo. It can be found in most industrial sections and seaports on the map. Despite the vehicle being used to lift cargo, the player cannot use the Forklift to lift objects. Presumably, this version of the forklift is the same as what would have been included in Mercs 1.
- The Forklift's description is an exact copy of the Baggage Carrier vehicle from Mercs 1, except that the word "airport" is replaced with "warehouse."
