The DFT-30 is a flatbed truck appearing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Design

The DFT-30 is a large and long cab-over flatbed truck, with a cab (which is only available in white) resembling that of a Ford Cargo. However, it is more likely, given its size, that it is based on a Mitsubishi Fuso Fighter. As are most trucks in game, the DFT-30 is only capable of seating two.

Missing rear wheel

Rear quarter view of a DFT-30. Note the missing rear wheel.

Despite being depicted with the body designed of a six-wheeler truck, the DFT-30 has only one rear wheel on its left axle while the right has two, resulting in a truck that seemingly has only five wheels. This combination has been outlawed in North America, and this is more than likely a minor error or bug, as the player is able to see sparks coming from the "invisible" tire when it is punctured.
A fix for the PC version can be obtained here.

This bug has been fixed in the downloadable Xbox 360 version of the game.

Performance

Like the Flatbed, the DFT-30's size makes it slow and less maneuverable; the length of the truck also makes for difficult driving on narrow roadways, and the stiff suspension leaves the truck unstable and susceptible to tipping over when traveling on uneven terrain.

The truck's flatbed is of little use for transporting vehicles (as the load usually slides to the back whenever the truck moves forward, like the Packer). Despite the inability to attach objects on the flatbed, it can be used for off-roading, just as long as the truck doesn't go too fast when confronted with rough terrain. It has a 4.0 liter electric V6 with 160 hp. The drive-train is a little weak, as it is 2WD.

It is possible to ride on the back of the truck without the player floating backwards or falling off/over. It also can provide a steady gunning platform, as all of the back is completely flat and wide.

Locations

Trivia

  • The default radio station in the DFT-30 is Playback FM.
  • All DFT-30s in San Andreas have a mirror flipped number plate. This is because Rockstar North (based in Scotland) made this vehicle. In the original version, it would have had a right hand steering wheel and a missing rear wheel on the right side. The same problem is evident on the Camper.
  • The DFT-30's engine produces the same sound as the Bus and the Coach
