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.

A Journey in GTA San Andreas..
GTA San Andreas |
|Vehicle type||Civilian recreation van (RV)|
|Body style||2-door motorhome|
|Capacity||2 (driver and passenger)|
|Manufacturer||Zirconium (GTA V)|
The Journey is a truck-based Class C motorhome (most likely a Chevrolet C30 model), featuring a cab-over extension over the cab. The vehicle is well equipped in the rear compartment with a furnished interior but is inaccessible; therefore the Journey can only fit two people, both in the cab up front.
The accommodation area of the vehicle (the back) contains a red tiled floor, a sink, a table accompanied by two bench chairs found at most fast food restaurants, and some cabinets; other accessories include a ladder and a continental kit (spare tire) on the rear. The Journey also has a large flat roof, making for a great rampage platform. The only way to access the roof is to jump on the front end and make a second leap onto the top, as the ladder is unusable.
The Journey, living up to its bulky size, is incredibly slow, but gains great speed going down hills. The acceleration is poor as are the brakes, but it is very sturdy and withstands a lot of ramming before giving out and exploding. The steering is also below-par and it tends to roll a lot.
- The Journey plays the radio station K-JAH West by default when entered.
- A portion of the yellow and blue stripe vinyl running across both sides of the Journey is missing on the passenger side's quarter panel of the vehicle.
- In the GTA San Andreas strategy guide's "Auto Trader" section, the Journey, depicted in its pre-release form, features the same white with black spiral hubcap design found on various sedans and coupes in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
