The DFT-30 is a flatbed truck appearing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The DFT-30 is a large and long cab-over flatbed truck, with a cab (which is only available in white) resembling that of a Ford Cargo. However, it is more likely, given its size, that it is based on a Mitsubishi Fuso Fighter. As with most trucks in the game, the DFT-30 is only capable of seating two occupants.

Despite being depicted with the body designed of a six-wheeler truck, the DFT-30 has only one rear wheel on its left axle while the right has two, resulting in a truck that seemingly has only five wheels. This combination has been outlawed in North America, and this is more than likely a minor error or bug, as the player is able to see sparks coming from the "invisible" tire when it is punctured or skid marks when braking.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Like the Flatbed, the DFT-30's size makes it slow and less maneuverable; the length of the truck also makes for difficult driving on narrow roadways, and the stiff suspension leaves the truck unstable and susceptible to tipping over when traveling on uneven terrain.

The truck's flatbed is of little use for transporting vehicles (as the load usually slides to the back whenever the truck moves forward, like the Packer). Despite the inability to attach objects on the flatbed, it can be used for off-roading, just as long as the truck does not go too fast when confronted with rough terrain.

It is possible to ride on the back of the truck without the player floating backwards or falling off/over. It also can provide a steady gunning platform, as all of the back is completely flat and wide.
