"Once upon a time, a blank radar screen meant you could relax. But times change. With the Akula in town, a blank radar screen probably means you're a few seconds away from being vaporized by a cackling sociopath in an attack helicopter. And there's only one way to make sure you're on the right side of that brave new world..."

I don't think it'll be a Hunter killer outright, but it should have some perks. Hopefully something stealth based. Maybe limited off radar capability like the ultralight, or greater difficulty in being tracked by lock on weapon systems.

Short on time right now, but I just wanted to say - a new helicopter already!

 

This has to have some stealth features. It'd be criminal to have a Commanche and not give it them. Don't think it'll kill the Hunter anyway - it's featured throughout the trailer too.

 

Having a little brother will be nice for Hunter.

It seems to the the vehicle that is locking and engaging multiple vehicles at once in the trailer. I really thought they would displace the Hunter with Airwolf, maybe that'll be next up.

FYI, "Akula" in Russian means "Shark."

 

What, you think I actually read the first post? Get outta here with that.

This is the only thing I'm completely set on getting when the update drops. The Vulcan probably, but this definitely. It's gorgeous.

It has 4 seats. 2 in the front 2 right behind them.
You can see this briefly in the trailer.

Im really exited to get this thing and i hope that it has the off radar ability of the ultralight, since someone pointed out that the side guns may be retractable.

The Comanche was small compared to the Apache, but this thing is a 4-seater so I think it'll actually be a bit larger than the Hunter.

If it has a pilot controlled turret my Hunter is prob getting mothballed. Love my Hunter, but this looks more lonewolf friendly, and my buddies have moved on from gta years ago. Very sexy R*.

To bad the IRL version of this chopper was canned because they are now all riding the FVL d*ck.

So we now have a comanche coming soon

It is most closely named after the ka-50 chernaya akula, which in my opinion is one of the coolest names of all time

Unless R* intentionally screws up its durability like they did to the Savage.

I hope this one is faster than the Hunter. At least we can retract the f*cking lansing gears, that bothers me to no end on the Hunter.

That's setting the bar kind of high to be honest.

Thats beautiful, I love the Hunter. I hope this helicopter is just faster in a straight line and flies smoother for stuff like the video you just posted. The Hunter is incredibly agile, so I think the Akula should be incredibly fast. Not ridiculously, but enough to be noticeable. It just looks sleeker to me, while the Hunter is built for twists and turns.

Rockstar clearly can't into Russian. The word "Открыть" seen on the side actually translates into a perfective infinitive verb "Open". The arrow probably points to the canopy opening handle. Anyway, the word they chose is not exactly right.

Pretty cool. this heli is a 4 seater so it be cool to take a few friends and do cargo with it. might be a buy for me IF its cheaper then the hunter. I wonder if it cant be locked on since its a stealth chopper. Still broke af tho, cant really assemble a decent crew to get cargo/heists done
