The Hunter has terrible handling, no real need for it


Having tried it in the supply mission I have to agree. It handles far, far worse than the Buzzard. It just feels really spongy and not really responsive.

 


fully upgraded its waaaay better

What color is the Hunter there? Original, black or green?

Ultralight is the only definite choice. I'll have to wait and see if the Hunter's armor is as good as the mission Hunter's first. INB4 it goes down in two explosives instead of 12..... please take a lot of hits!

 

The Ultralight's offradar ability is fantastic. Especially for how cheap the thing is. They really need to implant that ability in more vehicles, it'll be easier sneaking up on griefers cause unlike Off Radar and Ghosting the game doesn't sell you out for doing so.

Im missing something,  can someone enlighten me on the OTR ability of the Ultraligth and or how to activate it

I think you have to buy some upgrade and then when you glide it (not accelerate, just let it fly) it will go off the radar. I havent bought it tough

The Ultralight is off radar when gliding (engine shut off entirely) by default, the Muffled Prop upgrade allows you to leave the engine running in its neutral setting (on, but without pressing the accelerate button) and still remain OTR. 

 

It can maintain a glide for a very, very long time but the prop upgrade is worth it for the boost it gives to speed and climbing ability while remaining totally hidden.

The Hunter of course. Countermeasures alone give it an edge other helicopters don't have. Then you've got its increased resistance against explosive snipers, access to bombs, barrage, etc.

Like all items in this game, the ones that are worth buying are the ones you like and can afford.

I don't like any of the new aircraft enough to justify spending several million dollars on them, so I haven't bought any. Besides, I already own the Buzzard, Savage and Hydra as well as some pointless aircraft beyond those from before the update.

Of all the planes I've flown, I think the Nokota has been the most impressive.
The Tula has a lot of utility and options, I enjoy the sourcing mission when you go offshore (bombing, diving, JATO-ing away).
The Molotok is fun, but slower and less maneuverable than I'd like.
The Starling is neato for the gliding and bombing, but my luck was getting shot down before I got any confirmed kills :/

The Buzzard should be the very first thing you buy, if you're a CEO you can request it anytime next to you!
