Also it can shrug off a few rocket/cannon hits at 100% armor before blowing up, if you do happen to get hit.

 

Now that sounds good. I like my aircraft tough.

Learned a little about the Me-163 yesterday: the fuel and oxidizer wasn't merely super-volatile and could explode with a significant jolt, but if it leaked out for any reason it could also dissolve the pilot.

Why are people using this as a fighter? Its not supposed to be a fighter.

Its a long range bomber, the other weapons are for light defence.

You streak in at insane speeds, vaporise your target and vanish.

It's a short-range interceptor in real life...with a  7 minute flight time. Stupid Rockstar and its gimmicks.

U mean the Rogue? I wonder which one is tougher. I think they can both withstand a dive crash and fly further...

i think the new aircraft with full armor are all in the same range strength wise. all can survive a explosive hit and all still fly after having a unfortunate contact with the ground. rogue Also takes 3 explosive sniper shots.

I realise what it is in real life but in GTA Online you can streak across the entire map on a single upgraded tank making it "long range"

With a bit of practice you can drop your bombs and be out of range before the lock-on is even finished.

Useful in dogfights, great for bounties, and just fun to fly

Also being able to avoid missiles rules

I'm starting to like this more.  It's fun to go on bombing runs (now that I switched to regular bombs from the glitched/broken cluster bombs) in my little matte black "mini B2 bomber".  It feels like the second most maneuverable aircraft after the Rogue.

Reminds me of a little B-2 Spirit. Surprised it wasn't in this DLC actually considering all the bombs.

Picked up a few decent Lf-22 Starling free aim kills, similar to how you do it with the Oppressor. It's not easy to use, though.

The only thing that annoys me about this little Gremlin is that you cant retract the wheels. It really rustles my jimmies.

It's NOT a Gremlin! It is the Luftbomber from the game Luftrauser!

9Z5oe5g.png

Glider, Jet, Bomber, can spam rockets and the MG has some srs damage. You can straight up boost vertical in the air without even start the engine and you lose no speed. Beats the Hydra, Lazer and hits almost the skybox with a full boost. And the glider only has a wider turn if you use the boost. So this thing is really agile in dogfights too. You can beat a hydra quite easy, but the lazer is with the handling on the same lvl and the lazer has exp. rounds.

As a Bomber is this one very good too, no boost and a bit of the brake to glide slowly. you can accurately bomb with this thing. I helped my mates yesterday with some bunker resupply missions and bombed all the NPC's with the gasbombs. NPC's dead in 5 secs flat and the vehicles we had to collect took no damage. Nothing is better than boosting in the air and turning the engine off, and hear nothing but the wind breeze.

Would you prefer detaching the front wheel and landing on some funny skid pad instead like the real thing?

Shot down my first Starling a few days ago: guy provoked and fired at me, retaliated and got him.
Impressive handling, and its size make it hard to hit.
