Amphibious aircraft, Mostly based off the Grumman G-21/G-21C/G-44 it looks to be a very interesting aircraft!  :colgate:

It's called the Tula and they f*cked it up quite badly.

I think the fuselage is based more off the Widgen

With the tilty wings borrowed from

The point is:

  • Flying Boat hull
  • Amphibious wheels
  • Fixed (large-ish) guns in front
  • Pintle-mount gun in back
  • VTOL pivot wing
  • JATO option
  • Bombs option

Yeah i was about to post a pic of the tilt wings one, apparently they just straight up took the grumman fuselodge to build it. its a navy prototype and they just stuck on some tilt wings on there

The VTOL wings actually come from a NASA experiment:

Look at the wings and engine placement, they're almost identical to the Tula's:

The EXACT wing is from that NASA experiment, yes.  I was just posting that a "flying boat with tilt wings" existed far closer to the Goose/Widgen's era than the NASA one

I wasn't a fan of the look of the engine placement and size, but knowing that this is a VTOL aircraft does make it much more interesting than the first impression suggested.

 

In a game where the aircraft don't have proper flaps/spoilers and the engine stalls when you slow down, vertical landing capability is a big advantage for anything off-strip. The combination with a floating hull will make this one of the most versatile aircraft in the game for transport at least.

An Amphibious, Tilt Wing, Turreted, Weaponized, VTOL Bomber? Seems pretty interesting imo

So, this plane can have rocket-assisted takeoff (Jato Thrust). Perhaps the coolest plane yet!

inb4 you have to research the weapons and adding one removes the other.

Did RSG add too many options for this one? 

 

Can't find which controller button(s) to use to activate the countermeasures, seeing as D-pad right = VTOL modes

Co-pilot. Not the one at the gun. The one sitting right to you doing nothing else but.... countermeasures. A bit disappointing.


Edit:
Apparently you can choose pilot vs co-pilot for bombing and countermeasures via the interaction menu. For me and a friend it did not change anything in the Tula. Maybe it has not been implemented properly yet.

If you're hovering and use the bombing camera you seem to stop hovering and start moving forwards. That along with not being able to use countermeasures while piloting leaves me a little disappointed.

I've wanted a flying boat in GTAO forever and the Dodo just wasn't enough... but at that price they can get lost. Even at half that it'd not be worth spending 8 hours grinding for. Disappointing.

It's expensive, but still fun.  The JATO option is great from a standing-start, but only works when A) You're on land/water and B) the wings are horizontal.

When hovering you are very vulnerable as it doesn't have the transition speed of the Hydra or anywhere close to its acceleration.

As said before there seems to be a bug where the choice via the interaction menu does not work. On the other hand maybe even in the future you might only be able to choose between either bombs or countermeasures if you are flying alone. Again: Have a co-pilot. He can use countermeasures.

 

Edit:

Interaction menu settings for bombing and countermeasures are working fine with the Rogue. Maybe they really overdid it with the options and gimmicks on the Tula and there is no button left on gamepads. For keyboards there should be a workaround somehow, sometime.
