HVY Nightshark Apprecation Thread
 

T6I4KdW.png
 
Armored SUV in the Off-Road class, manufactured by HVY, based on the Dartz Prombron / Kombat T-98

 

It weighs over 4 tons, has different kinds of armor, can be customized in LSC.

 

Expected price once it comes out: $1,245,000

 

There's a special moment in the life of every billionaire when you realize that everyone else is trying to kill you and steal from you. And when the time comes, you want a vehicle built exclusively to cater to that paranoid delusion. Enter the Nightshark, where you can sit in perfect comfort behind tinted, sniper-proof glass as the filthy hordes press against your armored hull, then pull the trigger on the dual machine guns and relax as the car does all the hard work for you. Who's crazy now?

 

Video of the car in action:

Looks like something that could benefit from a NOOSE version.

Let's stop beating around the Bush and ask the most important question:

What about the armor on it? Can it survive how many explosions?

Bulletproof windows?

I've updated the OP based on my findings in the handling files and my experience briefly testing it in singleplayer

This thing is stupid fast considering how heavy it looks, but why are Rockstar sticking the sh*tty Ruiner 2k guns on everything? They're awful at killing just about anything.

Here's all the mods available, looks like you can actually armor it in LSC? But from some short tests it seems like the additional armor doesn't actually change the hitbox of the car and you can still shoot right through.

Spoiler

 

Surprised it doesn't come with an option for a whale foreskin interior considering its origins.

Ignore its looks, the performance this thing dominates the Insurgent. Snappy as hell handling, perfect traction and great acceleration combined with machine guns in the front the driver can fire make this thing better imo.

 

wonder when its coming out

Only drove it around in its mission, I never took damage from any of the cars shooting at me while I was driving it and towing an AA gun, armor barely went down at all... but then again its a mission vehicle so who knows.

Looks a bit strange.. like, too many smooth and flat surfaces. 

 

Not necessarily bad, though, just.. different.

Can confirm. Speed and handling are unreal. Makes no sense to slap Ruiner 2k machine guns on it though.

Well... at least you can still use your own weapons while sitting in the driver's seat.

 

Spoiler for those wondering where you can find this beast on GtaOnline:

Who needs bulletproof windows with A-pillars that big?

Its decently heavy, pretty fast for what it is. Engine note has some Schafter V12 in it. Mods go as far as armor plating on the door, hood, windows, headlamps, taillamps, etc. + 3 exhausts. Primary and secondary color schemes.

This should have been named the Oppressor, and the bike should have been named the Nightshark.

Probably not, the manufacturer of the car in real life (Dartz) has another model named the Prombron which comes in a spec called 'Black Shark'. That's where I would assume the name comes from.
