The '''Rhino''' is the name of an armored fighting vehicle since [[Grand Theft Auto III]], commonly referred to by players simply as a Tank. The Rhino has since appeared in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]].
== Description ==
Like [[Tank|it's predecessor]] in [[Grand Theft Auto 2]], the Rhino appears when the player attains a six star [[Wanted Level in GTA III Era|wanted rating]]. In all games, the Rhino can be avoided without much difficulty because of its slow speed and bad handling, but it's extremely deadly if the player attempts engaging one and the soldier driving always carries strong weapons. Also, when successfully stolen, authorities can bust the player due to the Rhino's slow speed. When it hits a vehicle, the vehicle most of the time explodes straight away; if not, it starts to burn instead, in [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] however, this does not happen. Although the Rhino has a cannon it is never used by law enforcement, this however is changed in GTA Chinatown Wars as the Army will fire the cannon which causes massive damage to, and usually kills, the player. The Rhino is practically invincible to small arms fire and crashes; and only [[Satchel Charges]], Dozens of other explosives and rockets and the [[Police Maverick]]'s mounted gun can cause damage to it. Also, flame weapons (such as the [[Molotov Cocktail|molotov cocktails]] and [[Flamethrower|flamethrower]]) can also be used to inflict damage.
=== Design ===
In GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, the Rhino features a seemingly original but chunky design comparable a modified [[wp:M3 Lee|M3 tank]]. It is of heavy construction, with doors on both sides that can be easily damaged with even the slightest hit, and a truck-style 3-axle drivetrain with easily seen wheels. The turret can be rotated by pressing buttons, which made precise shooting almost impossible.
In its original appearance in GTA III, the Rhino assumes a stark appearance with little details on its armored body. The GTA Vice City rendition, however, added various equipment on the vehicle, as well as enlarging the turret's barrel. While the GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories would follow design ques of the GTA III and GTA Vice City renditions, the turret barrel of GTA Liberty Stories rendition is of the same size and length as that in GTA Vice City, while the GTA Vice City Stories' is even longer.
In GTA San Andreas, the Rhino looks like an [[wp:M1 Abrams|M1 Abrams]] and it is much more realistic. It is colored beige (desert camouflage), has a normal tank entrance in front and a new drivetrain with smaller wheels, which look almost like tracks. It also has a new steering system, that finally allows the player to make very tight turns. The turret is operated with the mouse or right thumbstick ([[PlayStation 2]]), which allows the player to shoot directly at the target. The Rhino in GTA San Andreas is also heavy enough to literary push aircraft, making the Rhnio an ideal vehicle to [[Andromada#Appearances|push the destroyed Andromada]] from "[[Stowaway]]".
Interestingly enough, neither the GTA San Andreas nor the non-GTA San Andreas versions have caterpillar tracks as their their real life counterparts; the reason for this is probably due to the limits of the game's engine.
The Rhino does not appear in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]; this is assumed to be because of Rockstar's goal of making GTA IV more realistic than previous games. However, GTA Chinatown Wars reintroduces the Rhino with an appearance similar to the original Rhino but depicts threads.
Harwood, is a district on Portland, Liberty City, in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It is a northernmost district in the island, bordering Saint Mark's and Hepburn Heights to the south.
Harwood is a northernmost district in Portland characterized by its largely undeveloped landscape, with only a few low-density businesses being based in the area, while other portions of the district are unoccupied.
The few buildings, businesses and landmarks that are within the district vary, from small scale commercial interests (a gas station, a car dealership, a taxi company, etc) to low grade industrial sites (a junkyard) and civic service (a fire station). Another interesting landmark in Harwood is a disused train yard containing abandoned flatcars; the yard is connected to a tunnel that cuts underneath Saint Mark's, originally intending to connect to Portland View and Portland Harbor, lending to the idea that the Harwood trainyard was for industrial use.
Harwood is also a major location in Liberty City's transportation system in both GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, housing the Portland entrance into the Porter Tunnel and the Portland end of the Portland-Staunton Ferry link, respectively.
Due to its proximity to Saint Mark's, Harwood is mainly controlled by the Leone Family.
The only real major event that took place in Harwood was the Harwood Slaughter of 1971. Here, notable Forelli Family hitman, Tommy Vercetti, was sent to assassinate a rival gang member. However, Tommy was set up by his boss, Sonny Forelli, and a group of hitmen arrived to kill him. Tommy, however, shot his way out of the ambush, killing all 11 enemies. After being arrested during his getaway drive, he was sentenced to 15 years in Liberty City Prison for 11 counts of homicide, and received "The Harwood Butcher" moniker as a result.
In 1998, during the events of GTA Liberty City Stories , Joseph Daniel O'Toole, after changing sides from the Sindacco Family to the Leone Family, is lured to be "made" shortly after the slaughter of the Sindaccos out of Portland, in a ceremony at Harwood. However, it turned out to be a trap and Leone made man, Mickey Hamfists, killed O'Toole.
