Originally introduced with Heists, the turret-mounted Karin Technical (also known as your favorite hillbilly death truck from Series A Funding) has reemerged from the seedy backwoods, deadlier and more customizable than ever before. Upgrade the Karin Technical in your Mobile Operations Centers Vehicle Workshop Module to bolster your armor and get access to a mountain of new modifications. Enlist the help of your Bunker research technicians to unlock even more firepower, livery and armor options. After upgrading to the Karin Technical Custom, store your beefed up war machine as a Personal Vehicle in one of your personal Garages.

If you didn't own a Technical before, will buying one now and upgrading it to the Custom give you a PV version AND the Pegasus version, or only the PV?

Will upgrade Technical and get a Phantom Wedge. GR bonus is nice too. 

 

Edit: you get to keep the Pegasus one.

So a fully upgraded bunker should produce 1 unit of product ($7k) in (1/1.25) * 7 = 5.6 minutes? 5m36s.

 

Therefore a single vehicle sale ($175k local) should take 140 minutes or 2h20m instead of 2h 55m.

Boosted only till the 24th? That's highly disappointing. When I first heard about it, I assumed they had second thoughts on the long wait times and decided to lower it for good. Shame, but I'll do my best to make the most of it. Ahyeszir.

Damnit they added 4 more research items with this and I only had proxy mines, incendiary, and some liveries left!
Edit: all research items are for Karin technical, looks like 3 pushbars and the chain gun.

And anyone got the notice: "Earn an award item for Gunrunning Sell mission"? I finished a GR Sell mission and it said I earned an award item but where to find it?

It's the first time I got the notice.

No, 140 minutes is the default time (2 hours 20 minutes) since 175/7=25. Source

Now we're talking about 25% time decrease from 140 minutes which is 1 hour 45 mins.

So that's four more items added to the existing 45 randomwallTM items? Making a ground total of 49?

 

Oh, you assholes, Rockstar.

For anyone who hasn't researched the items they actually want, that's another four useless add-ons to the existing and rather crummy research list, for a Karin Technical that many of us already own as a Pegasus vehicle, but will have to buy again as a Personal vehicle in order to upgrade it, and will probably never use anyway, mostly because it requires two people to operate and isn't actually any good. It's not even the 'aqua' version, but the bog-standard Karin Rebel with a rear-mounted turret.

 

Avoid this, and grudgingly accept another 4 items to your already burgeoning list of useless randomwallTM items.

So, right now we have 3 useless overpriced vehicles: Technical, Technical Custom and Technical Aqua which can be destroyed by a single APC head on.

Like the extended Double GTA$ & RP in Overtime Rumble - hell of a fun. The hoodie looks cool, too. But sadly we have to keep the Technical in Pegasus, c'on R*, let us at least clean out that Pegasus list. (not talking about a sale or refund, I just want get rid of some entries there =weapon locker style *hinthint*). Aaaand back to the game ;)

It's stuff like this that makes me realise there's a world between the Rockstar developers who actually make our fantastic game, and the turds who work in the marketing department.

 

Why bother giving us 2x Overtime Rumble payouts, 25% bonus on arms deliveries, and double associate and gang-member salaries (which are all great btw) only to negate that by enticing us into researching four practically useless add-ons to a pretty useless vehicle that will cost us millions in outlay, research and upgrades?

 

Why not just give us the new Karin Technical + costs + upgrades, for those who want it, and cut out all the marketing nonsense? Just another week of grinding extra cash to spend on a useless item for many people.

I'm glad Rumble bonuses got extended. I didn't get to play it hardly at all last week. I'm hoping this week I can hit it hard and actually make some money. (the last few days have been very bad for my Maze Bank account..between buying a Weaponized Tampa and having several vehicle and gun supply missions go south, I've been hemorrhaging cash left and right)  Even if I lose those games it's guaranteed income.

Great, but that's the mission where you have to steal the technical and take it back to the bunker for research. You don't need to buy or research the Karin Technical to do this.

 

The Karin Technical is great in it's own right, agreed, but you don't need to buy one or upgrade it to enjoy it... as can be seen in the above clips.

Turreted limo is better overall: gun, gunner and overall protection, availability (spawns closer), can be used as a roadblock.

9 hours 15 minutes to max out bunker stock when fully upgraded now

It takes 5.25 minutes to produce each unit of stock now so multiply that by 100 (The max units of stock) and you have 525 minutes. 525 minutes/60 minutes = 8.75 hours.

Black Ammunation hoodie? But I've already unlocked that by completing all tiers at shooting range.
