"There's a plane coming into Francis International in two hour's time. It is full of Catalina's poison. You can avoid airport security by a boat out to the runway light buoys and shooting the plane down on its approach."
Asuka Kasen

S.A.M. is the final mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Yakuza leader Asuka Kasen from a Panlantic Construction Company construction site in Fort Staunton, Staunton Island, Liberty City.

MissionEdit

Claude visits Asuka and Maria Latore at the construction site in Fort Staunton. Asuka informs Claude that a plane containing a number of SPANK drug packages is arriving at Francis International Airport in Shoreside Vale. Asuka advises Claude to travel to the airport by boat to avoid the airport security, so Claude drives over to a jetty in Bedford Point. He picks up a rocket launcher on the jetty and takes a boat to sail over to the southern end of the airport. He kills the Colombian Cartel gang members guarding the exit of the airport. A short time later, the plane containing the drugs lands at the airport. Claude destroys the plane with the rocket launcher, scattering the drugs all over the runway.

After the plane is destroyed, Claude retrieves the packages before the police arrive. After escaping from the police, Claude leaves the airport and travels back to the construction site with the drugs.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Find the marker boat and get to the marker buoy
  • Get to the runway marker buoys! The plane is on it's final approach
  • Collect the cargo
  • Stash the SPANK back at the construction site

RewardEdit

The reward for this mission is $45,000 and the next mission Ransom is automatically unlocked.

Tips and TricksEdit

  • If the player escapes by boat after destroying the plane, sailing back to the dock near Asuka's condo can make the escape easier as a Pay 'n' Spray is located near the condo.
  • If the player has performed at least 20 Vigilante Missions, they can use some of the police bribes at the Shoreside Vale safehouse to escape the police.

TriviaEdit

  • After the DeadDodo is destroyed, its wreck bears the form of a standard Dodo, with the plane's wings becoming short and stubby.
  • Despite the fact that Asuka says you can avoid airport security, going into the airport the normal way will not fail the mission and there will be no airport security to speak of. However going this way will leave Claude more open to attacks, as the Cartel members on the runway are all heavily armed and there is almost nowhere to hide on the runway.
