The Da Nang Thang is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by Mountain Cloud Boys leader Wu Zi Mu from his apartment in the Chinatown district of San Fierro, San Andreas.


Carl bumps into Woozie just as he was about to leave his apartment. Suddenly, Little Lion, a Triad gang member, calls Woozie and informs him of the Da Nang Boys having arrived on a freighter ship on the San Fierro Bay and have brought along some Vietnamese refugees and locked them in a container.

Carl rushes to the apartment's roof and meets Little Lion who is about to fly towards the ship with his Maverick. Carl enters the helicopter and the two fly over to the shipment in the middle of the sea. Carl, prepared for an attack, starts killing every Da Nang Boy he spots with a mini-gun and after a brief moment, one of the Da Nang Boys manages to shoot down the helicopter with a rocket launcher. Little Lion dies and CJ survives the attack, but losses all his weapons and is left with only a knife in his hands.

He climbs the ladders onto the ship and kills the first Da Nang Boy armed with a shotgun from behind and continues his way around until he finds the prisoners and frees them. One of the refugees tells him where The Snakehead, the Da Nang Boys' leader, is located. Carl makes his way to The Snakehead and is handed a katana. During the sword battle, Carl kills The Snakehead and along with the refugees escapes in a Dinghy.


Carl Johnson: Woozie, my man!

Wu Zi Mu: CJ, you caught me on the way out.

Carl Johnson: Business?

Wu Zi Mu: This is the big one, this is the one that is going to seal my place in the Red Gecko Tong. But something's come up, and I've got to things it out myself.

(Woozie's cell phone rings.)

Wu Zi Mu: Excuse me.

(Woozie picks up the phone.)

Wu Zi Mu: Little Lion, what's the news? Damn. Why today of all days? OK shit. Take Guppy and go check it out.

(Woozie hangs up.)

Carl Johnson: Trouble?

Wu Zi Mu: The Da Nang Boys are arriving today on a container ship. Little Lion's gone check it out - I really have to go too.

Carl Johnson: Hey man, look. Don't even trip. I'm gonna handle this one for you, alright?

Wu Zi Mu: Thanks, my friend. Your help and friendship has been invaluable to me.

Carl Johnson: Thanks man. Where the other guys?

Wu Zi Mu: Oh, they're getting a helicopter to do a couple of flybys of the ship. Look - if everything goes well, I'll call you in a week or so and invite you to my new spot.

(Carl meets Little Lion on a roof and enters his helicopter.)

Little Lion: Hey CJ, what are you doing here?

Carl Johnson: Just bumped into Woozie on the way out. He filled me in. I thought I'd roll with you.

Little Lion: Well we ain't rolling, we're whirling! Strap in and strap up!

(The Helicopter takes off and flies towards the freighter.)

Carl Johnson: Where we headed?

Little Lion: To the boat - it's moored out in the bay.

Carl Johnson: Oh yeah, I see it!

Little Lion: You better lock and load, they'll be on their guard!

Carl Johnson: Locked and loaded!

Little Lion: Holy fuck, they're gunning for us already!

Carl Johnson: I see 'em!

Little Lion: They're all over the containers!

Carl Johnson: I got 'em man, right in my sight.

Little Lion: Hit those Da Nang bastards!

(Little Lion spots a Da Nang Boy with a rocket launcher.)

Little Lion: RPG! RPG!

Carl Johnson: Where? Which side?

(The helicopter is hit by the rocket launcher and goes down.)

Little Lion: We're hit! We're going down! Brace for impact!

(The Da Nang Boys on the freighter with Carl climbing the ladders into the ship.)

Carl Johnson: Oh man, that hurt! Damn, lost everything but my blade.

Da Nang Boy #1: Can you see any survivors?

Da Nang Boy #2: No. Nobody's getting out of that alive.

(Carl approaches the freight containing the refugees)

Refugee: Hey you, help us! Hey, please, help us!

(Carl frees all the refugees.)

Refugee: Please, the Snakehead tricked us, we're prisoners. Please help us escape! The Snakehead is up on the bridge...

(Carl makes his way to the bridge, kills The Snakehead's guards and goes to The Snakehead's room, when he arrives, The Snakehead tosses Carl a sword.)

The Snakehead: Enough! We settle this here!

(Carl kills The Snakehead, then he heads to the life boats and climbs into a dinghy)

Refugee: Thank you for everything!

(The Refugees sail away to safety.)
