The Rhino is the name of an armored fighting vehicle since Grand Theft Auto III, commonly referred to by players simply as a Tank. The Rhino has since appeared in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Stories.
In San Andreas Stories, Grand Theft Auto 2 every GTA III era game and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the Rhino tank appears when the player obtains a 6 star Wanted Level. Unlike the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it assumes a white camouflage. The Rhino can be avoided, but it is hard, especially since the Rhino tank will shoot vehicles in San Andreas Stories. The Rhino is invincible to small arms fire in and crashes; and only Satchel Charges, Dozens of other explosives and rockets and the Police Maverick's mounted gun can cause damage to it. Also, flame weapons (such as the molotov cocktails and flamethrower) can also be used to inflict damage. Note that it is also possible to destroy a tank with conventional ordnance, but it will take very long to destroy one.
