Literally the slowest thing I flew in this game...The Titan and the Cargo Plane are faster and with more realistic speeds!

How come this thing can even gain altitude without stalling?? It's f*cking stupid

I saw one and - strictly for scientific purposes - filled it with explosive sniper bullets.

 

It was an extremely easy target, though it did seem to take more than the number's I've been hearing. Felt like around 10 before it exploded, though it was clearly struggling after a few and probably would've fallen down if I left it.

 

I'll get a video later if I can.

 

Could've been a mission version I guess?

 

That's a sale mission Bombushka, that one is way stronger than normal.

I had hoped for something more like : auto pilot mode and acces to a moc or somthing like that.

Flying in auto pilot mode when accessing the bombushka's moc. Its verry Slow so you cant fly out of the map, when you do, auto correcting.

I pulled the trigger and bought it... I like it, eventhough I'll only use it for some stuntflying... After a few attempts, I was able to park it on top of my Maze Bank tower, despite its size... To this day I have way more difficulties with the LF-22 to pull that off... Funny view though, that big lump on top of Maze bank, ehhe...

 

Would indeed be nice, if we could put it in circular autofly mode and blast away with the guns... But for that, it'll need one serious buff against explosive rounds/missiles... I guess it'll be for stuntracing only then... And that unuseable cargospace is damn wasted opportunity..

 

An expensive unuseable plane... But it looks great... :-) I'll probably locate it in my storage, as it takes up alot of space in the hangar... I'll put more useful planes in plain sight there...

I swear they don't even think when they put sh*t in this game. They need to go in a full public lobby with themselves in the sh*t they release to test it out. There's too many paper military vehicles in this game at this point, it's fkin stupid.

When it comes to armor, it seems to be the flying version of the Tugboat :(

at least it's completing the trinity of weak vehicles. Land: rhino. Water: tugboat. Air: bombushka.

Can you do stupid but potentially funny crap with it, like people standing on top of it, or cars parked on top of it without falling down while it is in the air? If so, then I might consider buying ... Oh, wait, it is 4,5 fantasticatillion bucks for this? Nevermind ...

this thing is good for pvp if there is a heli or a jet to back u up, but yeah it needs a big armour buff against bullets and explosions.

You'd need an army of Hydra or choppers to protect this thing even then, it's still a big ass moving target that asking to be a targeted.

Good way to fly across the map with minimal effort: take off, aim for the sky, sit back, relax, send a text or two, ...
Not as environment friendly as the ultralight...

The Bombushka can take a lot more than 3 explosive sniper shots, it can actually take 30 shots to the fuselage (testing with someone inside, don't test it on SP with mods or with no one inside, that doesn't give accurate results for Online).

Although it seems to be a lot weaker if you hit it on the engines (3 shots to the same engine exploded it, which seems to be some kind of console-focused balancing, as usual; I didn't test the resistance to shots on the wings or if shots to other engines count towards the total of 3 shots to explode when shooting them).

 

Edit: I just got on the game, and after a bit more testing, the plane's resistance to explosive shots seems to be extremely inconsistent, it can take a lot more shots from the side, from the back and underside, but seemed to explode after 3 shots on the upper side while making a turn, and also only took 3 when shooting its landing gear's extension on the side.

Bullsh*t? Why don't you test it by yourself? It seems to take a lot of explosive shots on the fuselage. While it was standing still (with someone inside) and taking hits to the fuselage (near the cabin, to the side), it exploded on the 31st shot.

While it was flying and being shot from the underside, it took 10 explosive shots, its engines started failing, but the plane itself didn't explode and that would easily allow for the pilot to land.

 

With it standing still, again, it took 10 to 12 shots to the back, the cargo bay door opened, I continued shooting inside the cargo bay, and the plane was still there, working perfectly, and I'm sure it could take more (honestly, I stopped testing after that, because me and my friend actually need to grind for some money and I'm sure someone else can take this information and do some more in-depth tests).

 

As I said, it's extremely inconsistent, as if Rockstar wanted it to be explosive sniper-resistant, but whoever coded the extra resistance messed up and it either sometimes doesn't work, or only works on specific spots of the plane.

So there's no way to glitch into the turret seat of your own? Hopefully we'll find a way... i wanna park above the Vinewood sign and pepper fools without dealing with pesky things like circling around or finding a competent pilot..

I was surprised how much these guys seem to be able to get out of it. Makes me reconsider whether this really is just a paperweight or not.

 

 

According to them, flight formation can actually heal the plane. I guess that could be useful if you got shot up too badly. Not sure how quickly it will do it though.

 

Still not an ideal vehicle for a lone wolf like myself, but interesting and a pretty unique plane.

So me and some friends tested it today in combat. It´s not useful. Explosive snipers take it out insanly quick and somehow (the lobby was pretty laggy, so it could be that) we almost never got a warning of homing rockets. I also blowed up some with the heavy with regular rounds and BST. Took maybe 3-4 mags to blow it up. As cool as it looks and powerful the guns are, this thing is just way to slow and fragile. But hey, i outranged a jet and shot it down, it´s something i guess.

 

If you don´t have a sh*tload of money and want something with a camera-gun, wait for the hunter or get a valkyrie.

 

But still, i love the look of this plane, it´s really beautyful.

I will never get why they always use so bad music in kill-videos... But that´s just me i guess.
