The Triad Fish Van, also known as the Belly in Grand Theft Auto Advance, is a large box truck featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It is the gang car of the Portland Triads.


GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories

Evidently based on the Mule, the Triad Fish Van is essentially a box truck distinguishable only by its Belly-Up Fish & Seafood Processing Plant name visible on the sides and front of the truck's cargo compartment. The Fish Vans also earn the distinction as the earliest gang cars to appear with multiple body colors (shared with the Mule), when other gangs cars in GTA III and GTA 2 were only using single color schemes.

Despite its similar appearance as the Mule, the Fish Van features slightly improved performance, with a lighter body and improved speed, and it is all wheel drive. Its size also makes the Triad Fish Van one of the largest gang cars in the series, alongside the Karma Bus in GTA 2.

Since the Triad Fish Van is a gang car driven by the Liberty City Triads, it is native to the Chinatown neighbourhood of Portland, Liberty City, but may also be found within the Belly-Up Fish & Seafood Processing Plant compound in Callahan Point, Portland.

GTA Advance's rendition of the fish van, known as the "Belly", received substantial changes, modifying its role and design.

In comparison to the similarly designed Wong, the Belly in GTA Advance is slightly smaller in size. The truck is also driven by civilians instead of the Triads, and because of this can be found in every district of Liberty City. The Wong effectively takes over the role of the Belly as the Triads' gang car.

The Belly is always yellow, unlike the Wong, which has multiple colors. Interestingly, if you look closely while flipping over the Belly, you can make out the words "TOYZ IN DA HOOD" on the van's side, which appeared on GTA III's Toyz van.
