Unlike the tanks featured in other GTA games, the Royal Pain does not resemble a traditional tank. It is an enlarged and armored Jug MkII, with gold plating and a mounted gun turret on the roof. However, it remains functionally identical to the tank of the first GTA.
The fact that is a modified civilian vehicle, and not a military vehicle per se, would suggest that it is intended not for warfare but urban use such as riot pacification, with lethal force as an option for emergencies.
