Whilst I was using Michael nearby to grab a case of cash, I decided to bust into the military airfield, with invincibility of course The curious thing is, how did you survive so long in your tank, (if it is paper) w/ other tanks shooting at you?!
After I finally got down the runway near to a hanger my car was blown up in like 2 seconds because magically tanks appeared out of nowhere and so I was on foot then and of course tanks firing away, running over Michael. One of the tank drivers got out so I jumped in his tank and was taking fire from all angles, foot, at least one other tank, helis, clearly as I had full stars out in the open, jeeps running into my tank, really didnt do anything more than what tends to happen when I'm in the bull dozer. It def didnt stop my progression...
It does get a *bump* but nothing more, the tank wasnt taking any visible damage, I managed to drive down the runway back around to the right, then to the left hitting the barricade at the guard house because the tanks are a bit awkward, so got straightened out, I drove down the way to the main highway, all that time taking all that fire and my tank was ok. I got rid of the cops, letting the small fire on the back of the tank go out and finally driving along and shooting ped vehicles, 2 exploded on impact, some near to the tank etc, somehow my tank got stuck. I'm guessing it allows the tracks to be *destroyed* so the tank ends up being like a car where its tires are shot. Anyway, cops kept showing up, about the 6th cop vehicle that I blew up, finally the gun blew off the tank, it was dead.
Honestly, that took a lot more damage than *paper* would. The Rhino tanks were pretty strong but werent invincible either, just more so than these. Most of the vehicles in V are just all wrong anyway. A 3000lb mini impacting a 15000lb dump truck @ an avg speed of 40mph, should do a lot more damage to the mini and a lot less to the dump truck, the truck shouldnt be pushed around by it... I think the dozer and the time I had in the tank were at least a little more realistic than the others.
It was really bad getting one of the huge dump trucks from the quarry and only after running over one or two cars that blew, it explodes. In real life that might actually happen too but really, they should increase its damage threshold, because you cant help but run OVER cars w/ something as tall as a 3, 4 story building... But again, if they come out w/ the game on PC @ some point AND its remains mod friendly, we can fix some of this unrealistic handling etc.
It makes me wonder IF R* got *messy* w/ the cop AI is that the only time you see cops now is the random vehicle chase and those parked @ random along the highway...
In IV they used to be cruising around town and on foot. We dont see that now, maybe that is why they're more aggressive and apparently, *expert* marksman
