NO. Aircrafts are underpriced in GTA, since day one with Buzzard/Hydra/Savage. And there is a common pattern to R* approach when it comes to aircrafts: unrealism.
-Extreme avaibility(price and ability to request them ad infinitum)
-No comparison possible with their real-life counterparts technically speaking, the Hunter is the real exception, R* made some efforts for that one.
Its consistent in some way: crappy price, crappy stats, extreme avaibility
The problem I see is that peoples want everything, and that is everything must be easy to handle. Dilettantism. When you get an aircraft, even in GTA, you have to spend time on it, not 15 min a day doing a mere mission.
Unless you got a mod menu and spawned the Hunter and fled it for hundred hours since SR release, I think you're just plain ignorant and don't measure how much that new helo is good in comparison of what we got by the past, on every plan.
I'm not exactly sure what you are on about. What, you wanted to pay tens of millions for a one-time-use military jet?
And the Hunter doesn't have problems with handling. It might have struggles with pitching, but I'm sure the handling upgrades make up for it. I'm talking about utility.
To pimp out your Hunter you'll probably start reaching 4 mil $. Not even mentioning that it requries also spending money on very pricey hangar AND a mod shop.
Savage costs 2 mln $. Hydra is 3 mln $ and it's a jet with VTOL. Both of them come fitted with everything they have to offer.
The Hunter only gets Valkyrie-esque cannon that can only be manned by a second player. Absolutely no comparison to an explosive cannon that has about ten billion RPM. Bombs are laughable. The barrage is terrible against everything that isn't an enemy aircraft because of the pathetic explosion radius and it's also tricky to use. All the while you can just point a dot in your Savage and obliterate everything in a blink of an eye. In PvE, solo, other choppers are still a threat. While the vehicle might take a lot of shots, if you miss your barrage and wait for the cooldown to pass, the terminator AI has no problem with sniping you out of your cockpit, so even more annoying manouvers required.
In the age of explosive snipers and other stuff the Hydra and Savage are easy to take down, sure. So the Hunter gets a lot of survivability with both armor and countermeasures. But those matter ONLY in PvP. That part of the game that gets you nowhere and is a money sink. Even then, it will be tricky to hunt anyone when you are solo, because, as stated, the barrage is bad and we all probably know how good standard homing missiles are against fast moving targets.
Let's talk prices again. Compared to Savage you are paying almost double. It's 2 million GTA$. According to the famous 'lone wolf guide' you can make 300k an hour. So extra 6-7 hours of excruciating grind. Because that guide is a nice way to get you to want to kill yourself while playing a video game. Boring, unispired, repetitive grind. It will take a lot longer if you earn money while actually semi-enjoying yourself.
So, it's a choice between a cheaper aircrafts that are fine with only one player in them, which are also vastly superior in PvE (that stuff that actually generates money) or a very expensive griefing tool that requires two players to be truly reckoned with.
Stop overselling the Hunter as the best thing ever. It is not. It will be a fun toy to play around with for rich players, sure, but for your Joe Average it's absolutely not worth it. Get an Oppressor. A Vigilante. A Tampa. APC. A more funky plane. Something truly original. But another, samey helicopter that does more or less the same stuff, only in a different way? Nah.
But hey, what do I know. According to you I haven't spent literal 3 days straight in a single vehicle, so I don't have a say in the matter.
