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.

|Capacity||2 (driver and passenger)|
|Manufacturer||Enus (HD Universe)|
The Windsor is two-door sports convertible featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It takes the form of a large two-door coupe in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, added in Part 1 of the Ill-Gotten Gains Update.
- GTA San Andreas
The Windsor is designed as a 1960s to early 1970s classic European convertible sports car, appearing with either its black canvas top up or down. Originally designed to mimic the late-model Jaguar E-Type, the car was further redesigned during GTA San Andreas' development, resulting in a final form with a front end more similar to that of a 1966–1968 Ferrari 330 GTS or a Ferrari 365.
- GTA V
In Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, the Windsor, now branded as an Enus vehicle, is no longer styled after a classic grand tourer. Instead, it is a large contemporary coupe, with heavy inspiration from the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Rolls-Royce Wraith, including some elements from the Bentley Continental Flying Spur. The Windsor has an upraised hood, and it is also the very first car in the entire Grand Theft Auto series (not counting lowriders and tuners in GTA San Andreas) to feature multiple designer liveries (eight in total), which can be applied to the exterior of the car, much like the vinyl wrapping process.

The Windsor is a very fast car; however, it does not match up to some of the "elite" cars. The Windsor's engine is very loud, giving out a throaty roar, sounding more like a V8 than the four-cylinder engine that came in all Alfa Spiders or the 6-cylinder/V12 that came in the all Jaguar E-Types, but acceleration and speed are on par. Cornering is very difficult, as the car seems to be much heavier than it looks, and the car tends to subtly fishtail or drift, despite running at mid speeds, though experienced players can control its drifting capabilities.
- GTA V
The Windsor has a powerful V12 engine under the hood, giving it a unique sound. Performance-wise, the Windsor falls in the mid-tier class for the "Coupes" class, with a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time slotting just behind the Oracle. The Windsor has a fairly good top speed, allowing it to keep up with most coupes and even some sports cars, including the Voltic electric supercar. However, the very heavy nature of the GTA San Andreas rendition has been retained in the GTA V rendition of the Windsor, hampering its handling abilities, especially during high-speed cornering. Braking is average for this car's class. The Windsor has a top speed of 189 mph (305 km/h).
The Windsor can be modified at a TransFender, but is only offered a bare minimum of modification options:
Italicized pricing denotes prices at the Las Venturas TransFender, which charges 20% more except Colors.
- An early iteration of the Windsor, with proportions more similar to that of a Jaguar E-Type (sporting a longer front end) and shielded headlights, is depicted on a hung picture inside the Driving School.
- The default radio stations for the Windsor are as follows:
- GTA San Andreas
- Spawns around the western half of Los Santos.
- Spawns while riding a PCJ-600 in Rodeo, Los Santos (Wednesday).
- Available at the Easter Basin docks in San Fierro for import for $28,000 on Wednesdays after completing the first export list.
- Spawns often driving a ZR-350 in Queens, San Fierro (Friday/Saturday).
- Commonly spawns along The Strip in Las Venturas.
- A pink Windsor is found parked outside the sex shop after exiting the shop during the mission Key to Her Heart. The car may have been intended to be the player's replacement vehicle in an event their earlier vehicle disappears after the player exits the sex shop.
- Available in pink as a chase vehicle outside Madd Dogg's Crib near the end of the mission A Home in the Hills.
- GTA V
- Spawns in all three protagonists' garages as a "Special Vehicle".
- Purchasable from legendarymotorsport.net for $850,000.
