I think Leyland Octopus was the name used for the real 4-axle truck the toy was based on.

One of the most Bizar cars in GTA, I dont think the base model is even american, The game coming from a british company I think they just based the tanker on a random toy.

The unusual sides have allways confused me. They seem as if they are way too sloped,
Also 8 wheels? (or probly 12 wheels, But two rear axels with 4 front steering wheels)

te first thing this made me think of was those 8 wheel british trucks.

So I dug around a little and found this.

The tanker has allways been strange with its lined roof and 8 wheels funy sides.. but still that truck has flat sides.. so heres what I think happend.

Take a pic of the top of the truck, its not 100% top, theres a little side showing, so what if they just fliped the image and based it off that? to give it more character rather than being a flat box, with a cylinder behind it.

2. Flip image to mirror it.

3.Show wheels more, Add flamible sign, GTA Tanker

Sooo... Does this mean the GTA Tanker in the us, is actully a british Leyland Bison? That just seems really weird to me, Especially after I said 'This cant be this Cuz USA'

If it does it means the sprite is kinda inacurate.. MFG? heh
