The '''Mule''' is a box truck that appeared in every game after ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'' with the exception of ''[[Grand Theft Auto Advance]]'' and ''[[Chinatown Wars]]''. It is manufactured by [[Maibatsu]] in the [[HD Universe]].
   
The '''Mule''' is a box truck that has been featured in the following games:
+
== Design ==
  +
With the exception of ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', the Mule can only support two occupants in the cab; the cargo hold does not normally open, but the cargo hold can be exposed when the door is removed - the truck will contain various items of cargo in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City|Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|San Andreas]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories|Vice City Stories]]. In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the cargo hold allows at least 2 passengers to sit on the wheel wells.
   
* [[Grand Theft Auto III]]
+
===3D Universe===
* [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]
+
When introduced in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]]'', the Mule served as a mid-size straight "luton" truck a step below the [[Yankee]], thus being smaller in size (in actuality being narrower) and lighter. As a result, the Mule fares better in speed and acceleration but still possess average-to-poor cornering. In addition, the truck's high center of gravity may also result in easier rollovers and an inability to return upright in many occasions. The small wheels on the Mule also relate to this problem. The GTA III era Mule most closely resembles a [[wp:Ford E-Series#Third generation (1975–1991)|1989 or 1990 Ford E-350 cube van]].

+
In GTA IV, it resembles a mid [http://www.google.ca/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&docid=3mXhrxdZ6HfB5M&tbnid=d3tP7F_6P7hZ1M:&ved=0CAMQjhw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wantai.net%2Fmitsubishi__fuso_trucks.htm&ei=3q9qUq7PHMejkQfxnYGQAQ&psig=AFQjCNHiXlYXVm4dXIFd8LO-pCfS8fGfxA&ust=1382809942504328 1990's Mitsubishi Fuso FM] series and the [[wp:Isuzu Elf#Fifth generation|fifth generation Isuzu Elf N-Series]]. The Mule comes with various company names painted on the sides, as well as a version with no markings.
   
When introduced in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], the Mule served as a mid-size straight "[[wp:Luton body|luton]]" truck a step below the [[Yankee]], thus being smaller in size (in actuality being narrower) and lighter. As a result, the Mule fares better in speed and acceleration but still possess average-to-poor cornering. In addition, the truck's high center of gravity may also result in easier rollovers and an inability to return upright in many occasions. The small wheels on the Mule also relate to this problem. The GTA III era Mule most closely resembles a 1989 or 1990 [[wp:Ford E-Series|Ford E-350]] cube van.
+
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', the Mule allows rear passengers to stand in the back, in addition to 4 passengers sitting on the rear wheel wells. To sit on the rear wheel wells, both front seats must be filled. Once the front seats are filled, a player can press the enter vehicle button and they will "pop" onto one of the rear wheel wells. Pressing the shoot or buttons while seated on a wheel well will open the rear door allowing other players to stand in the back.
   
In GTA IV, it resembles a mid 1990's Mitsubishi Fuso FM series. It doesn't tip over as easily as previous games' renditions of the Mule, but is still slow, at 97 mph. The GTA IV Mule is manufactured by [[Maibatsu]], and has a 3 litre diesel engine, according to the badging. ABS braking is standard. The Mule comes with various company names painted on the sides, as well as a version with no markings.
+
It is one of the vehicles that is unable to be modified at [[Los Santos Customs]].
   
In GTA IV same as Benson, Mule does not power with air-brake but instead, it powers with disc/disk-brake and/or drum brake which is rather odd for a heavy vehicle.

Overall, the Mule has a good durability, but not as good as any other truck, however, the truck has a good top speed, and an acceptable acceleration, capable of getting to a decent speed with causing too much oversteer. The truck's brakes are its main downside, they seem to take a while to make the Mule come to a complete stop, and when it does, it usually results in a crash, or the truck taking a while to regain speed, making it a bad choice for a getaway vehicle.
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto IV''===
  +
Returning to GTA IV, the truck returns as a much more durable and acceptable vehicle, it can now reach high speeds at a better time, and its top speed is also higher. Over steer isn't as common, but can still happen, and, if steering is performed to quickly, it will result in the vehicle to tipple over, but usually doesn't fall onto its side, which is unusual for a vehicle of its size.
  +
  +
The Mule in GTA IV has a 3-litre diesel engine, according to the badging. It doesn't tip over as easily as previous games' renditions of the Mule, but is still slow.

[[File:Mule-GTAV-RSCStats.png|thumb|Performance stats on [[Rockstar Games Social Club]].]]
  +
Returning to GTA V, the Mule remains mostly unchanged. The suspension is much better, being stiffer due to GTA V's revamped handling physics. The stiffer suspension improves handling response, which further improves braking and acceleration rates. However, its heavy weight still causes problems regarding acceleration.
  +
  +
It is stated, according to badges, to have a "four wheel rotation system", which is an usual way of saying four-wheel drive. The Mule in all of its appearances ironically is RWD.
  +
  +
The truck doesn't include a visible engine model, however, the sound is somewhat similar to a diesel Inline-6, high revving with a significantly smooth engine sound. It shares the engine sound with the [[Benson]], [[Police Riot]] and [[Stockade]].
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto Online''===
  +
Available in GTA Online is the Armored version of the Mule, which sports an added bull-bar, and a metal undercarriage (useful to prevent other vehicles from getting stuck in-between the wheels). In comparison to the standard Mule, the Heist version has slightly improved acceleration and top speed, but no overall change in braking or handling. The main difference between the two is ramming power, where the Heist version has similar ramming capabilities to the [[Insurgent]], as it can ram vehicles at a high speed without losing too much speed itself, and move vehicles smaller than it with little to no wheelspin, both something the standard Mule cannot do.

"The Classic commercial delivery truck. Inconspicuous, secure, reliable. What happens in the back, stays in the back."
―Standard Mule, Warstock Cache & Carry description.
"Instead of being stuck behind one of these on a narrow road, why not be the one causing the traffic jam instead? Move everything from furniture to laboratory equipment or keep it empty and just enjoy the ride."
―Heist Mule, Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Mule is a box truck that appeared in every game after Grand Theft Auto III with the exception of Grand Theft Auto Advance and Chinatown Wars. It is manufactured by Maibatsu in the HD Universe.

Design Edit

With the exception of Grand Theft Auto V, the Mule can only support two occupants in the cab; the cargo hold does not normally open, but the cargo hold can be exposed when the door is removed - the truck will contain various items of cargo in Vice City, San Andreas, and Vice City Stories. In Grand Theft Auto V, the cargo hold allows at least 2 passengers to sit on the wheel wells.

3D UniverseEdit

When introduced in Grand Theft Auto III, the Mule served as a mid-size straight "luton" truck a step below the Yankee, thus being smaller in size (in actuality being narrower) and lighter. As a result, the Mule fares better in speed and acceleration but still possess average-to-poor cornering. In addition, the truck's high center of gravity may also result in easier rollovers and an inability to return upright in many occasions. The small wheels on the Mule also relate to this problem. The GTA III era Mule most closely resembles a 1989 or 1990 Ford E-350 cube van.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

In GTA IV, it resembles a mid 1990's Mitsubishi Fuso FM series and the fifth generation Isuzu Elf N-Series. The Mule comes with various company names painted on the sides, as well as a version with no markings.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Mule allows rear passengers to stand in the back, in addition to 4 passengers sitting on the rear wheel wells. To sit on the rear wheel wells, both front seats must be filled. Once the front seats are filled, a player can press the enter vehicle button and they will "pop" onto one of the rear wheel wells. Pressing the shoot or buttons while seated on a wheel well will open the rear door allowing other players to stand in the back.

It is one of the vehicles that is unable to be modified at Los Santos Customs.

PerformanceEdit

3D Universe Edit

Overall, the Mule has a good durability, but not as good as any other truck, however, the truck has a good top speed, and an acceptable acceleration, capable of getting to a decent speed with causing too much oversteer. The truck's brakes are its main downside, they seem to take a while to make the Mule come to a complete stop, and when it does, it usually results in a crash, or the truck taking a while to regain speed, making it a bad choice for a getaway vehicle.

Grand Theft Auto IVEdit

Returning to GTA IV, the truck returns as a much more durable and acceptable vehicle, it can now reach high speeds at a better time, and its top speed is also higher. Over steer isn't as common, but can still happen, and, if steering is performed to quickly, it will result in the vehicle to tipple over, but usually doesn't fall onto its side, which is unusual for a vehicle of its size.

The Mule in GTA IV has a 3-litre diesel engine, according to the badging. It doesn't tip over as easily as previous games' renditions of the Mule, but is still slow.

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

Mule-GTAV-RSCStats

Performance stats on Rockstar Games Social Club.

Returning to GTA V, the Mule remains mostly unchanged. The suspension is much better, being stiffer due to GTA V's revamped handling physics. The stiffer suspension improves handling response, which further improves braking and acceleration rates. However, its heavy weight still causes problems regarding acceleration.

It is stated, according to badges, to have a "four wheel rotation system", which is an usual way of saying four-wheel drive. The Mule in all of its appearances ironically is RWD.

The truck doesn't include a visible engine model, however, the sound is somewhat similar to a diesel Inline-6, high revving with a significantly smooth engine sound. It shares the engine sound with the Benson, Police Riot and Stockade.

Grand Theft Auto OnlineEdit

Available in GTA Online is the Armored version of the Mule, which sports an added bull-bar, and a metal undercarriage (useful to prevent other vehicles from getting stuck in-between the wheels). In comparison to the standard Mule, the Heist version has slightly improved acceleration and top speed, but no overall change in braking or handling. The main difference between the two is ramming power, where the Heist version has similar ramming capabilities to the Insurgent, as it can ram vehicles at a high speed without losing too much speed itself, and move vehicles smaller than it with little to no wheelspin, both something the standard Mule cannot do.
