The RC Tiger is a small remote controlled vehicle that appears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The RC Tiger is a model tank evidently fashioned after the real-world Pz.Kpfw.VI Tiger (P) VK4501(P) (Porsche Typ 101), the rare Porsche version of the Sd.Kfz.181 Pz.Kpfw.VI Tiger I tank, used by the Germans during World War II; while seemingly using continuous tracks for propulsion, the RC Tiger actually uses a set of wheels hidden behind the static tracks; these features can be seen if it is accessed using a modification or driven on bumpy terrain. Because of its origins, the RC Tiger is the only vehicle in the game not to have a fictitious name. Its performance is actually similar to that of the RC Bandit, with a low speed but responsive controls.
The RC Tiger is not actually available to the player outside a mission for Zero, where it is used by the player's opponent, Berkley, on a model battlefield. Players would have to resort to mods to access the vehicle.
- The RC Tiger has a very unique engine noise that actually sounds like a tank.
- The RC Tiger is modelled after the dropped Porsche prototype of the Tiger I ("Pz.Kpfw.VI Tiger (P) VK4501(P) (Porsche Typ 101)") tank instead of the actual production model used in the war. And for some reason, it's track wheels resemble those of the Tiger II tank.
- Despite having a tank's cannon, the cannon is not operable. However, in the mission New Model Army, Berkley's RC Tigers' cannon fired at Zero's Bandit.
- If the player obtains control of the RC Tiger and attempts to shoot, nothing will happen and a minigun sound will play. The sound will not stop until the player loads/restarts the game.
- The RC Tiger was going to feature in another mission where the player would need to detonate RC Bandits near Berkley's RC Tigers which were making way to Zero's shop, in an effort to destroy them. However, this mission was cut.
