Before you attempt this mission, if your motives are to attack the military convoy to steal the tank, it is recommended to get full health and armour.
The Rhino tank that Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez wants is in the Vice City Mainland. The Rhino is guarded by several well-armed soldiers with Patriots and Barracks OLs around the Rhino. Provoking the soldiers will make all of them attack you with their M4s and vehicles. If the Rhino reaches a warehouse in Viceport, the mission will be failed. There are three distinct ways to acquire the Rhino.
- Kill, Block, or Wait
The most risky way to obtain the Rhino is to kill all the soldiers guarding the Rhino and destroy all of the military vehicles except for the Rhino. This will make the driver leave the Rhino in panic. You can also kill the gunner and you will hear "what's up with the gunner"? At that point the driver will get out and yell "we're taking enemy fire", which is your cue to get in.
Another way to obtain the Rhino is to block the path of the military convoy with a car. This will make the convoy stop and one of the soldiers will exit his car to remove yours. At this time the Rhino becomes unlocked. Quickly hijack the tank and drive off quickly, the soldiers will; start to shoot at you and the vehicles will crash into you. Don't worry about the vehicle; they explode when they crash into you.
A safe way is to wait for them at a doughnut shop in Little Havana, across the street from the Little Havana police headquarters. The convoy will stop and the driver of the Rhino will exit to grab a doughnut. The Rhino is unlocked and ready to be stolen.
- Delta India Echo
A security protocol activates once you enter the Rhino. The Rhino is primed to self-destruct. Drive the Rhino to Cortez's garage in Little Havana to complete the mission.
Hint: Before you take the mission, steal a helicopter and take it to Cortez` yacht. after you get the mission, fly until you get above the Cafe where the army guy stops to buy a doughnut , and wait until the convoystops.Then, equip an assaul rifle and massacre the incoming guys. After all of them have been killed, jump down and enter the tank.The cops will be on you, but the only two things you will worry will be that the tank will be turned upside down by some un-well placed obstacles or that the tank will be so slow that the first policeman in sight will get you out.Don`t worry about enemy cars, every one who bumps into you will explode , and it will be even better if they come from the rear, because you will get a short speed boost.
