The Triad Fish Van, also known as the Belly in Grand Theft Auto Advance or simply referred to as Gang Mule, is the gang version of the Mule featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It is the gang car of the Triads.


Grand Theft Auto III & Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

Being a variant of the Mule, the Triad Fish Van is essentially a box truck distinguishable only by its Belly-Up Fish & Seafood Processing Plant name visible on the sides and front of the truck's cargo compartment. The Fish Vans also earn the distinction as the earliest gang cars to appear with multiple body colors (shared with the Mule), when other gangs cars in Grand Theft Auto III were only using single color schemes, making it the only gang car that has multiple colors in GTA III.

Grand Theft Auto Advance

The Grand Theft Auto Advance rendition of the vehicle, known as the "Belly", received substantial changes, modifying its role and design.

In comparison to the similarly designed Wong, the Belly in GTA Advance is slightly smaller in size. The truck is also driven by civilians instead of the Triads, as the Wong effectively takes over the role as the Triads' gang car. The Belly always spawns in yellow, unlike the Wong, which has multiple colors.

Grand Theft Auto III

The Triad Fish Van has better acceleration than the Mule, with a lighter body and improved speed due to the AWD layout and its weight (2600 kg). Its size also makes the Triad Fish Van one of the largest gang cars in the series, alongside the Karma Bus from Grand Theft Auto 2.

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

The Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories rendition has the same engine sound as the heavier trucks. However, its drivetrain was rearranged into an RWD layout and has an increased weight (3500 kg). Despite this, the vehicle still performs better than the Mule.
