  | Welcome to my GTA:SA FAQ. This guide is not your average FAQ about the
  | game in general. Rather, it is a "Specific FAQ" which is designed to
  | provide specific info on a certain part of the game, in this case,
  | Vehicle Missions. These missions include side-missions that are usable
    by, ta-da, stepping inside of a vehicle. *shock-shock* These missions
    include: Fighterfighting, Ambulence (Paramedic), Vigilante (Police),
    Taxi Driving, Pimping, Burglaries, Trucking, and Freight Trains. For 
    more info, read one of the sections below.

  | As you can probably see from looking at the ratings from the ESRB
  | above, this game isn't for young children. Since the very first GTA
  | in history, this game has been based on respect. You have always been
  | able to jack cars, collect weapons, shoot up pedestrians, blow up
    just about anything, run from the cops, and do missions for mysterious
    crime lords, and work your way up the large ladder of respect in an
    array of roads, towns, and suburbs, all wrapped into one game disk.
    I mean, come on, thats what Grand Theft Auto is, has been, and always
    will be about.

    Every GTA game has been improved in some way over it's preceding game,
    usually by a great amount at that. Grand Theft Auto I, II, and London
    1969 all included the infamous overhead view, which wasn't that great,
    but we all eventually let it grow on us. When GTAIII came out in full
    3-D action with bigger places to go, better weapons, more cars, and
    many more missions to do, people were going crazy. This game made the
    headlines as the most violent, best selling game to ever hit shelves.

    Just when people began to think that Rockstar would never be able to
    top GTAIII, they released Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. This new game
    improved upon GTAIII in almost every way. With a way bigger choice of
    weapons, many new vehicles (including motorcyles, helicoptors, and a
    better choice of boats), more missions than before, a lead character
    that has a name an talks, the option to buy your own property, and a
    new and diverse array of characters, GTA:VC was sure to be a keeper.

    Fans just kept thinking, how will they do it next? The most recent
    installment of the GTA series is Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. In fact,
    you are reading a FAQ on it, right now. San Andreas makes Vice City
    look like a dwarf. GTA:SA has three cities, EACH the size of the entire
    Vice City alone, connected by life-like highways. The vehicle selection
    is even bigger, as is the weapon choice. You can also ride bicycles and
    fly airplanes. You can gamble, bet on horses, sky dive, play pool, swim,
    shoot hoops, rob houses, work out, go on a date with your gilfriend,
    team up with a friend and cruise GTA two-player style, beat down cops
    with a dildo - you name it, and this game has it. The possibilities are
    basically endless with this game.

  |  Have comments, questions, or things you think I should know about?
  |  Mistake in my guide? E-mail me at tectactoe@gmail.com, but please,
  |  do not e-mail me with the following things:
  |
        + I don't want to read about what is already in my FAQ, thanks.
        + No Bigfoot, Leatherface, Zombie, or ANY myth stories
        + Do not e-mail me telling me about something that is useless for
          my guide. This is a vehicle missions FAQ, so telling me where I
          can find parachutes is useless info to me.
        + My guide does not include things already in the intruction
          booklet of the game. Don't e-mail me asking about the controls,
          or what songs are on the radio.

     Chances are, if your e-mail isn't violating one of the things above,
     I'll try my best to respond to it. Thanks for reading.

   /    VI. Firefighter   (fir01)                                      |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  | Rundown: You use the water cannon on top of a Fire Truck and hose
  |  down burining cars and crazy burning people. It starts of easy, with
  |  only a vehicle to put out, but eventually progresses to people who
  |  come out and run around like they were having an eptileptic seizure,
     and then eventually has multiple vehicles with multiple people.

    How To Activate: Get inside any Fire Truck and hit R3.

    Location: Fire Trucks can be found by fire stations (>_<) but if you
     dont know where they are at, you can simply set something to flames
     and soon enough, a Fire Truck will come to the rescue. Do things like
     Throwing Molotovs or using the Flamethrower (duh) to cause fires.

    To Unlock: Unlocked from the begininning of the game.

    Rewards: After completion of Level 12, CJ will become fireproof. Now
     you can run through fire without burning your flesh off... Somehow.

    Basics: Once R3 is pressed, the mission starts. A location of the
     engulfment is given, and a blip on your map gives you direction. You
     can tap L3 quickly to turn your sirens on/off. When on, some of the
     road vehicles scurry to get out of your way. Not all the time, though.

     For each level completed, you will gain a certain amount of money.
      This is helpful if you are in need of cash.

     This is a timed mission, in that you must extinguish quickly to keep
     at it. Don't act foolish, though.
     
     To control your water hose/cannon, you use the Right Analog Stick to
     aim it, L2 and L2 to rotate it, and press Circle or L1 to shoot. You
     must aim the water so it hits the fire. If done correctly, the fire 
     will go out and you will hear a little blip sound to confirm this.

     As the levels progress, more vehicles and people are added.

     TIPS:
       + Try and start this mission in a wide open area with no obstacles.
       + Make sure you keep this Truck alive for all 12 levels, since it
          can not be repaired.
       + Avoid accidentally doing a drive-by or running over people. Cops
          only make things tough.
       + Make sure you are aiming the water in the right direction. Look for
          smoke/steam when you are dousing it, and listen for the bleep.
       + DO NOT exit the Fire Truck, or game over. Tape the thumbtack on
          the triangle button to remember.
       + Remember not to let the citizens get too far away, or it will be
          hard to chase them down in the amount of time you have.

   /    VII. Ambulance/Paramedic   (par01)                             |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  | Rundown: People are injured and they need to get to the hospital, but
  |  they can't find a ride, and if they walked, they would die. That's
  |  where YOU come into play, ambulance boy. Pick up bleeding people and
  |  drop them off at hospitals without making the ride too bumpy. As it
     progresses, more people will be injured, so be quick about it!

    How To Activate: Hop inside of an Ambulance and hit R3.

    Location: Ambulances can be found near hospitals, but if you are not
     near one, there is still a way. Whip out a piece and pump some people
     full of led. They will die in agony, and soon, an Ambulance will come
     by to save the day. As soon as the paramedics get out to help, hop in
     and drive away. Easy as pie.

    To Unlock: Unlocked since the beginning of the game.

    Rewards: After completing level 12 of the paramedic missions, your max
     health is boosted up to 150. This has the same effect as waiting for 
     your max health to increase on its own, only alot faster.

    Basics: Hit R3 in an ambulance and you're ready to go. A location and
     a blue blip will appear. That is where your patient is. Keep in mind
     that this is a timed mission (as most are) so be quick.

     Drive up next to the bleeding patient, as close as you can without
     being on top of them, so they can get in faster.

     After the dude is in the car, a yellow blip appears on the map now.
     This is the nearest hospital. You get some additional time added when
     you pick up a patient, so don't worry too much that you drive crazy.

     Remember, too many bumps or crashes and the patient is toast. And in
     this case, toast = dead.

     After the patient is dropped off safely at the hospital, +25 seconds
     is added to your clock, so hop to it! As you progress, the number of
     patients will increase, you try to map out the best route. You can drop
     off more than one at a time, but don't crowd your ambulence too much,
     and remember about that +25 second rule.

    TIPS:
      + Keep the ambulance in good condition through level 12, as it can not
         be replaced or fixed at a Pay n' Spray.
      + Don't accidentally drive over a patient, or the mission is over.
      + Drive carefully, as the ambulance tends to tip easily.
      + Each bump reduces a patients chance for survival. This means, once
         again, DRIVE SAFELY.
      + Do not exit the vehicle, as the mission will be over.
      + As soon as a patient opens the abulence door, peel out, because they
         will hang on and get in anyways.
      + If you notice that a few blips (people) are close together or on the
         way to the hospital, then pick them all up at once to save time.
      + Paramedic missions are alot easier if you [go] out into Montgomery
         since patients are really close to the hospital. [Also try] out
         in Bluberry. (from ajstylefx)

   /    VIII. Vigilante   (vig01)                                      |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  | Rundown: Vigilante missions are cop missions. There are criminals that
  |  are scattered around town and it is your job to put them to sleep with
  |  the fishes. This is my favorite vehicle mission, and it is also the
  |  mission that can be done with the most amount of vehicles. Lets take a
     look and see whats up.

    How To Activate: Hop inside of any one of these vehicles and hit R3:
     Cop Car (Police), Barracks, Enforcer, FBI Rancher, HPV1000, Ranger
     Rhino, and the Hunter.

    Location:
        Cop Car (Police): These can be found basically anywhere. If you can't
          find one of these, you should not be playing this game. Try killing
          some people to get attention.
        Barracks: These can be found parked at the Restricted Area in the
          Desert or at the Easter Bay Naval Base. If you don't have access to
          these or don't feel like going, get six stars and they'll come out.
        Enforcer: These are a little easier to steal on-road than Barracks.
          Simply get a four star wanted level and they will chase you. All
          you gotta do is jack it!
        FBI Rancher: Just like the above, only harder. Get five stars and the
          black Ranchers will be glad to come out and try to kill you.
        HPV1000: Just as easy to find as Cop Cars. Just drive around in one
          of the cities and you'll find one. If not (ugh), get one or two
          stars and then you should easily spot one.
        Ranger: A Police Jeep. These are really easy spotted in the country-
          side areas. Check around the Badlands and in the Desert and you
          will be bound to find one, I guarantee it.
        Rhino: These are sweet. There is one in the Restricted Area, and one
          parked by CJ's house, but only after 100% completion. To get one
          otherwise, obtain six stars and you're sure to see one.
        Hunter: Helicopter from hell. It is found at the Easter Bay Naval
          Base, or at Verdant Meadows (only with all golds in pilot school).
          There is really no other way to get these.

    To Unlock: Unlocked since the beginning.

    Rewards: Complete Level 12 to get a new Armor max of 150.

    Basics: Once the mission begins, you will get a radio message telling you
     where a criminal threat is located. It's your job to race there and then
     ice their asses. You can do it anyway you like - drive-by, gun down on
     foot, rocket launcher - just make sure they'll never walk again.

     You get money for each level you make it to. You have a time limit that
     carries over between levels. Basically, depending on how long it took
     to exterminate the entire threat, you get added time for each new level
     you reach.

     If your police vehicle gets too smashed up, you can get out and hop in
     a new one without losing the mission. There is a short time limit, so
     make sure you find one quickly.

     The number of criminals is the same as the level you are on. Level 1 has
     one criminal, Level 2 has two criminals, and so on. They are always in
     cars, so every four levels, a new car is added. This is why it's always
     easier to blow up the car, so every criminal inside it dies.

     You have a big list of vehicles to choose from, so choose wisely. The
     Cop Car has good speed, but is weak and flips without much ado. The
     Barracks is really tough, but also really slow. The Enforcer is just
     like the Barracks, only less tough, and a smidge faster. The FBI Rancher
     is not very fast, tough, and it rolls over easy as pie, so just forget
     using it at all. The HPV1000 is fast, has pretty good handling, and you
     can do straight drive-bys; the only drawback is that it's very weak and
     you are pretty vulnerable on it. The Ranger is much like the Rancher in
     a way that it flips easy, so just skip it. Those are the... um... well,
     "normal" cop vehicles you might say. The other two, Rhino and Hunter,
     are not easy to obtain, but they make these missions too easy.

     If you choose the Rhino, all you have to do is simply drive into the
     criminal car(s) and boom shaka-laka, they're toast. This is all you
     have to do. If you find the tank is slow, turn the turret around by
     using the Right Analog Stick and fire (Circle) to go faster.

     The Hunter is also very easy to use (depending on your flying skill
     and how well you handle helicopters). You can just fly and hover over
     the criminals and gun them to bits with L1 or drop a missile from
     above with Circle. You may find the Rhino easier to handle with.

     In any case, make sure you wipe out the criminals - bottom line.

     #####################################################################
     BAD GLITCH ALERT: (taken from the GameFAQs Message Boards) It has
     been found that you can easily cheat your way to getting 150 Armor.
     Note, no actual cheats are used, but this would defanately still be
     considered cheating.

     Get into a cop car/HPV1000 and drive to a place with a yellow cone
     (a place you can go inside of). Hit R3 to start the mission, get off
     or out of the vehicle and go inside. Wait about 10-15 seconds and the
     target will be eliminated. Go outside, get back in/on the vehicle and
     repeat the as long as you'd like.

     Sometimes when their are multiple targets, you must do the trick more
     than once, so just keep doing it. I highly recommend NOT doing this,
     as it is like cheating and it makes it less fun. At least go and use
     the Rhino. Either way, it's your game, enjoy it how you see fit.
     #####################################################################

     TIPS:
       + The Rhino is the easiest to complete these missions, and, despite
          what people say, it is NOT cheating.
       + It's best to try and explode the whole car, so the criminals can't
          get out and run.
       + You CAN switch vehicles in these missions, as long as you do it
          in the alotted time.
       + Get your hands on an RPG? Drive ahead of the criminal, get out,
          and fire in the hole, my friend.
       + Try and eliminate the bad guys quickly, as time rolls over and it
          can accumulate, giving you lots of time for the harder levels.
       + If you chose the Hunter, try not to crash into buildings, as it
          makes it even harder to fly, and the sucker blows up easily.
       + Turning the siren on (tapping L3 quickly) will actually make other
          driver attempt to get out of your way. Helpful sometimes.

   /    IX. Taxi Driver   (tax01)                                      |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  | Rundown: Up for a little Crazy Taxi anyone? All you do is drive people
  |  from one place in San Andreas to another, so how hard can it be?
  |  By dropping people off quickly, you get added bonuses to your fairs,
  |  so be quick about it, but don't drive like a maniac.

    How To Activate: Hop in a Taxi or a Cabbie and hit R3.

    Location: Taxi's can virtually be found anywhere, but mostly in the
     downtown areas of the three main cities, so look there first.

    To Unlock: Unlocked from the beginning.

    Rewards: Earn 50 Fairs (does not have to be all in a row) and all of
     the Taxis and Cabbies will come equipped with Nitro. AWESOME.

    Basics: Hit R3 and you are prompted to "find a fare". Look for a blue
     blip on your map and pick him/her/it up - it's a fare!

     Once they are in the car, a timer starts and a "Tip Meter" appears on
     the screen. The tip meter will deplete as you take longer. You must
     drop the passenger off at the location they wish to go - a yellow
     blip on the map now. If you drop the passenger off with the Tip Meter
     still up, you get a speed bonus, and more money (depending on how
     filled it was when you reached your destination).

     Do not confuse the Tip meter with the time. If the Tip meter fully
     depleats, the mission is not over, you just don't get a tip. Taxi
     missions end when you step out of the vehicle or your time runs out.

     Time rolls over and can accumulate fast (if you are a good driver),
     so it's best to get as many fairs as you can, fast, so you have alot
     of bunched-up time when the destinations get more spread out.

     Every two passengers dropped off gets you a bonus, or an "In-A-Row"
     bonus, as it appears on-screen. The amount of money you get for these
     is = 100 times X-In A Row. Basically, if you get a 32-In-A-Row bonus,
     multiply 32 x 100, and you get $3,200. This is more inscentive to go 
     on for a longer time, as you make more money that way.

     Do not exit the taxi at any time or the missions will automatically
     end. If your taxi is too beat up, customers won't get in. Luckily,
     taxis and cabbie are accepted at Pay-n-Sprays, so visit one of those
     if you have the time.

    TIPS:
      + Time rolls over, so try and accumulate it for the harder levels.
      + Cabbies flip much easier than regular Taxis, so if you have the
         chance to choose, go with the regular Taxi.
      + It's good to get as many fares as you can at once. This way, you
         have lots of time and you make alot more money.
      + It's best to do these missions as one of the first things you do
         in San Andreas. You get to know the city pretty well, and after
         fifty fares - free nitro in Taxis and Cabbies!
      + Don't be too crazy, of your fares will not like you and get out.
      + Customers will not get into beat up Cabs, so if your vehicle is
         lookin' scummy, visit the nearest Pay-n-Spray.

   /    X. Pimping   (pim01)                                           |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  | Rundown: You are a pimp. No, for real. You have your to ladies, or
  |  hoes, and you drop them off at a john's house. Then when they have
  |  made happy with the john, go and pick them up. In later missions,
  |  the john might be messing with your girls, so you must whack him.
     Damn straight - pimpin' ain't easy.

    How To Activate: Get in a "Broadway" car and hit R3. Here's a pic:
     http://www.g-unleashed.com/files/16_vehicle_broadway.jpg (Thanks to
     G-Unleashed for the picture).

    Location: You can find Broadways driving mainly in Los Santos around
     Temple, Market, Downtown, and Mulholland. They are parked outside of
     Jizzy's Club. If you don't know where his club is, I made this pic.
     It's in San Fierro: http://img29.exs.cx/img29/7959/jclub3vs.jpg

    To Unlock: Unlocked from the beginning.

    Rewards: After completing Level 10 for Pimping, prostitues will now
     give YOU money when you pick them up instead of you paying them.

    Basics: Hit R3 to begin your life as a pimp. Sort of. Anyways, once the
     mission starts, the location of your girl is given and a blue blip
     appears on the map. When you pick her up, the location of a john will
     appear and a yellow blip is used. Drop your girl off at the location
     of the john, and she'll call you when she's done.

     You have a limited amount of time to drop your girl off before the
     john gets bored and leaves, so be fairly quick.

     After you drop a girl off at the john, your other girl will be waiting
     and another blue blip will appear. At this point, the time limit is
     gone, so after you drop a girl off, you can relax while going to get
     the next one.

     When you are ready, pick up and drop off girl #2 at the location. Now
     girl #1 is done and you must pick her up from the john. This is where
     money comes in. When picking up your girl safely, you get $300 times
     the pimping level you are on. Example, if you are on Pimping Level 6
     and you pick your girl up, 6 x $300 = $1,800.

     As the missions progress, sometimes the john won't be so nice. If you
     notice the john struggling or messing with your girl, get out and
     whack his ass. Make sure he doesn't harm your girl, or you will fail
     the mission.

     Also, some johns will run away and refuse to pay you. Take your car
     and run him over until he can't walk anymore. That should do the trick.

    TIPS:
      + Make sure the john doesn't get a chance to harm your girl. Get out
         and smack him before he has time.
      + Do not accidentally shoot your girl in an attempt to shoot the john.
      + If your pimpmobile is looking smashed up, you have time to take it
         to a Pay-n-Spray after dropping a girl off.
      + Remember, keep your girls safe, and you'll be fine.

   /    XI. Burglary   (bur01)                                         |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  | Rundown: You must sneak into a house at night, take as many goods
  |  as you see fit, stash them inside of your black van, and drive the
  |  stolen items back to the lock-up. All of this must be done before
  |  the sun rises or the cops will show up, so don't dilly-dally around.
     Steal the goods **** and get outta there!

    How To Activate: Hop inside of a Boxville van at night - anytime
     between 22:00 and 6:00. (I've been told that you can do these missions
     at 20:00, but I thought it was 22:00, and I still do.)

    Location: Parked across the street from the Ganton gym. Hop in at
     night and you are set to go.

    To Unlock: Unlocked from the start. Just get a boxville.

    Reward: You get to keep the cash that you make from the items you
     steal when you rob houses.

    ###################################################################
    NOTE: For the Burglary missions to count as "complete", you must
    rob a total of $10,000 in stolen items. Also note, this is of course
    not at once. It adds up over time. Thank you, and that is all.
    ###################################################################

    Basics: Hop in a Boxville between 22:00 and 6:00 and get ready to
     rob a house, mate.

     To start off, you must find a robbable house. These houses have
     those yellow cones in front of the doors. They are hard to see from
     the road, so drive slow and keep your eyes open. You may even need
     to get out to see some of them.

     Once you've pin-pointed a house, park the van so that the back of
     it is close to the entrance. Get out, and then enter the house.
     Oh boy, this is so much fun. Not really.

     As you enter the house, a Noise meter appears. It's your duty to 
     make sure that stays down. You might lightly, and I really do mean
     LIGHTLY tilt the Analog Stick to creep. If you accidently run or
     you jump/run into a wall, the noise meter jets up very fast. If it
     fills up and the home-owner hears you, but doesn't see you, then
     a "Cops" meter will count down from 10 on the screen. Exit the home,
     and then re-enter when it's safe.

     If you do not manage to get out of the house within those 10 seconds,
     you earn a wanted level, so it's best now to work with what you've
     already got, and don't risk it anymore.

     If you are seen by the owner, you automatically earn a wanted level
     (no countdown), and sometimes, the owner will whip out a weapon from
     concealment and open fire. Now would be a good time to exchange lead
     and leave immediately.

     Find items in the house you can steal and pick them up with Triangle.
     Walk slowly with the item outside and press Triangle again when you
     are close to the back of the van to drop the item in. Congrats, you
     have stolen your first item. Now repeat as many times as you want,
     but make sure you have enough time left to visit the lock-up.

     Each city has a lock-up that appears on your map when you get into 
     the Boxville after you've robbed a house. It's good to know where
     these are at before you go and rob, so you can get an idea of how
     much time you need to get there.

     Anyways, once you've stolen all the goods you want, get in the van
     and drive to the yellow blip that should appear (the lock-up). Park
     the Boxville in the lock-up before the Daylight counter goes down
     and you pass and get the money for the goods you stole. If you do
     not reach the lock-up before daylight, you recieve no money for the
     goods in the van. Better luck next time.

     *NOTE* it has been broght to my attention by David Wilton (thanks)
     that you just have to be out of the house by 6am. If you are out,
     you have until 11am to get to the lockup.

    TIPS:
      + Crouch in houses and tilt the Analog Stick slowly so you don't 
         make alot of noise.
      + After picking up an item, don't attempt to crouch or you will
         just drop the item - bad idea.
      + Each item (no matter what it is) is worth $20. The more items you
         steal, the bigger your bonus is. Your bonus is added on top of
         the original $20 for each item.
      + Give yourself enough time to get back to the lock-up.
      + If you are heard, rush out of the house within 10 seconds and the
         cops will go away.
      + Don't climb over furniture, as you will make a ton of noise when
         you step down.
      + Going up stairs can be vicious. Make sure you have good control of
         the camera, and take it slow.

    ###################################################################
    ALTERNATE STRATEGY FROM MESSY:

    - Get a burglary truck and drive to Grove Street (or whatever the street
      attached to it is called)
    - Find two houses you can break into (I believe they are random) close
      to each other, preferably next to each other, because running across 
      the street seems to take more time and coordination.
    - Park the truck in between the houses.
    - Run into one of them and don't sneak...run.
    - The noise meter will instantly be full, but because of the small
      [interiors] in Grove Street, you can just go ahead and get one thing
      and run out. There's only two different [interiors] I've seen in Grove
      Street so far, and both provide easy access to at least one item,
      usually a TV, Playstation or record player.
    - Run out before the cops come, you should have no wanted level
    - Load your item into the truck, and go for the other house and repeat
    - Now go to [the original] house again, and things will have respawned.

    Do this untill time runs out, and the timer will start again allowing
    you to drive to the drop-off point.

    THANK YOU MESSY.

  +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  | Rundown: Use a tanker to carry a load from point A to point B. You
  |  have to deliver it safely and make sure the load stays on the back
  |  of your tank. 
  |
    How To Activate: Step in the red circle at Mr. Whittaker's depot
     called "RS Haul" in Flint County. If you don't know where that is,
     look on your map for a little truck icon.

    Location: See "How To Activate" or look on your map for a gray Truck
     icon.

    To Unlock: Finish the mission "Tanker Commander" from Catalina.

    Reward: Cash is earned for eash trucking mission you beat. Once you
     beat level 8, RS Haul becomes an "asset" which means it generates
     a set amount of cash each day. This amount is $2000.

    Basics: Trucking missions require you to use a tanker to haul a load
     from one place to another. They are activated one level at a time, and
     you cannot go onto the next level until the previous one is completed.

     Walk into the red marker at RS Haul (on your map as a gray truck icon)
     and the trucking mission begins. The levels go on continuously, but
     once you complete eight of them, RS Haul becomes an asset and your step
     towards 100% for this is done. I will go through the eight missions.

     #####################################################################
     Truck Mission 1

     You must transport a load to random spot for this mission in 2:00.
     Follow the blip on your map to transport the goods. Turn carefully,
     because if the load comes unhinged, you only have 60 seconds to re-
     attach it back onto the tanker. There should be no problem with this
     first mission, and you should get your reward easily.

     #####################################################################
     Truck Mission 2

     Deliver another load to another randomized spot. In this mission, you
     have a damage meter. As you damage the truck, your pay goes down. It
     starts at $1500 and decreases as the damage piles on. Drive safely so
     you can leave with the whole package.

     #####################################################################
     Truck Mission 3

     You must now move illegal goods from RS Haul to a destination. Since
     your package is illegal, the fuzz will be hot on your trail. You will
     automatically endure a three-star wanted level. No damage meter to
     worry about, but the ramming cops can unhook your load which will be
     a pain to get hooked back on if they get out and try to arrest you.
     Drive fast to avoid the cops, be safe, and the money is yours to keep.

     #####################################################################
     Truck Mission 4

     You have to make a long truck in only 5:00 minutes, so be careful, but
     also be conscious of the time you have. Be quick, because if you are
     late with the delivery, your payoff is less. You don't have to worry
     about the damage in this mission either.

     #####################################################################
     Truck Mission 5

     This mission gets a little harder. You must drive pretty far, and once
     again - you have a damage meter. It's almost impossible to not get ANY
     damage at all and make good time, so don't worry about a small little
     dent, but don't get too crazy. Make sure not to get any wanted level
     or it will make things much harder.

     #####################################################################
     Truck Mission 6

     Once again, you are delivering illegal goods, which means you leave the
     station with three stars. The cops seem a little more fierce than in
     previous "illegal" missions, but keep your eyes peeled, drive fast, and
     avoid any more unwanted attention. And never let your trailer come un-
     hooked or you will be screwed.

     #####################################################################
     Truck Mission 7

     Luckily there are no cops in this mission, but it's still pretty tough.
     You have a time limit and a damage meter. You have to drive far in six
     minutes, so drive fast when you are on a straight road with no other
     vehicles, but take it careful around turns and in busy traffic. If you
     get it there in the time limit and go damageless, you will get your
     full reward.

     Truck Mission 8

     Arrg. More illegal delivery. This time, the goods are either REALLY
     illegal, or you have a TON of them, because you now have a four star
     wanted level, oppose to just a three. Since there is no damage meter,
     DRIVE FAST AND NEVER STOP. If you stop, the police will ram you and
     try to arrest you, and the helicopter will catch up and could blow 
     your load (*sigh*) into smitherines. It's a long way to go with that
     high of a wanted level, so try to pick up any no-so-out-of-the-way
     police bribes you know of. Be safe, and pick up your reward, your step
     towards 100%, and your new RS Haul asset!

    TIPS:
      + If the load comes unhinged, you only have 60 seconds to re-attach,
         so move a leg!
      + On levels with cops, try to go fast and don't ever stop.
      + Damage meter levels are a pain, but keeping the damage low will net
         you more $$, so keep things tidy.

   /    XIII. Freight Train   (fre01)                                  |
  +--------------------------------------------------------------------+
  | Rundown: Hijack a train and transport people from one station to
  |  another. It sounds simple, but a huge train is much harder to control
  |  than you might think.
  |
    How To Activate: Hijack a freight train and press R3.

    Location: Any train station. Los Santos - Unity Station, Market Station;
     San Fierro - Cranberry Station; Las Venturas - Sobell Train Yards,
     Yellow Bell Station, Linden Station.

    To Unlock: Finish the mission "Yay Ka-Boom-Boom" from Wu Zi Mu.

    Reward: $50,000 after completing two levels.

    Basics: Hijack a train and hit R3 to begin this mission. Don't worry
     about steering - the train is on a track. The controls are very simple;
     X is accelerate, and Square is the brake/reverse. The train is HUGE
     and just as in real life, it takes it a very long time to get going.
     This also means it takes forever to slow down and stop, so pay good
     attention to the distance meter and your speed-o-meter. You should only
     be doing 35-40 around sharp turns as the train could de-rail if you
     are going too fast.

     Here's the deal: stop at a station, pick up people, drop them off using
     the controls listed above. That's all. Make five succesful drop-off's
     to complete a level. There are onlt two levels. Two x Five = Ten drop-
     offs. Good luck.

    TIPS:
      + Get a feel for the distance it takes you to stop at the speed you
         are going.
      + Never go faster than 50mph or you could de-rail.
      + Keep the train between 35-40mph around sharp turns to be safe.
