Holy sheet this thing gets even more sexy. Lord have mercy and don´t hide it behind some fking dripfeed.

Last time they posted images on twitter, the things in them weren't drip fed. So this is almost guaranteed to be here on Tuesday.

Also there's pictures of it in the heist room and with a 4 person capacity it will doubtlessly be involved in one of the setups, maybe even the finale.

From the artwork and twitter image, my guess is it has fixed Buzzard style guns and missiles for the pilot. Maybe not homing missiles, to offset the stealth features.

One of the first things we learnt about this is that it has passenger-operated cannon.

Passenger-operated turret. But it also got cannons in the gun bay, which might be operated by the pilot.

There's one either side of the aircraft though and therefore the assumption from that post, is only the front nose cannon is controlled by the co-pilot. Fingers crossed anyway.

Oh that's the one mounted under the nose. You can see at its sides it has two other guns - these look like they could be used solo.

 

I guess the big question is if they're sh*tty guns, or explosive - or maybe somewhere inbetween, like the Rogue. Either way, those missiles look like a pilot can use them, and those will more than do for me.

 

In the original screenshot, didn't it only have one gun under the nose? Has two now. Pretty sure the missiles weren't on it either. Just trying to piece together what upgrades it'll have.

what with all the chaff and flares it's not like homing missiles are any good these days (except the spammy ones)

Didn't have the missiles on the trailer either :) PUf39sb.jpg - Hmm..I was hoping all side weapons would retract when not in use, but it don't seem like the missiles can. :p Unless there's 2 versions of it? Stealth version which is just guns. Or the full version which has missiles? I don't know. :p

No reason really to buy this one if you are a solo player. Its 2 person sh*tstain. So it only has a use with 2 people who want to grief a lobby into submission.

https://twitter.com/...613008527052800

'The Akula - Transport for up to 4 and comes equipped with a passenger operated .50 cal turret, rear seat thermal and night vision cameras, and a stealth mode to operate off the grid.

To bad though, would have liked it as a solo chopper.

The stealth alone, if it works in a reasonable way, is more than enough reason for me to get it as a mostly solo player.

Solo weapons or not, I'll still get it for sure, Unless it's super duper expensive. - Love flying nice helicopters on this game. So if this is anything like the Hunter, then it will be swell!! :)

I would bet all that stuff on the side can be used solo. The guns could possibly be a bit weedy, hard to say - but the missiles could be nasty against people on foot.

 

It'll be a great f*ck you to anyone who turns on ghost - like, you get off the map way longer probably, without paying too.

4 player capacity, night and thermal vision, loads of weapons, stealth capabilities... :O

I hope it doesn't out perform the Hunter too much. Who know, in a few weeks we might get an even more deadly gunship xD

I hope it can do the flips the Hunter wishes it was capable of at least

 

 

also what are the chances this thing drops 2 months after Tuesday?

I'm all for a new helicopter, but something about this just seems ugly. The Hunter was locked behind three months of dripfeeding and now here we are with a helicopter that goes into stealth mode and (as far as I know) operates the same way as the Hunter. Perhaps it'll have less armor or something.

 The RAH-66 has a great piece of history in aviation with its capabilities and futuristic looks, I seriously think you should look this one of a time helicopter up and understand the reasons on why rockstar sometimes adds these vehicles.

I could be way wrong but I think people are overestimating this. It's gonna have at least some drawbacks, big enough ones that people will inevitably complain about them. If I'm wrong I'll be happy, it's an instant buy for me unless the price is outrageous (over $5m - then I'd have to test it for sure) - I just expect a compliment to the Hunter, maybe a dirty little mistress, not an outright divorce and new hot blonde wife.

Oh I'm well aware of the source material. I'm just saying that R* are the type of people to take that source material, create something from it and exploit the potential buyers of that something. In other words, I fee like they're going to make the Hunter obsolete already. I don't know, but it's just a hunch. Look at how quickly the Osiris and Slamvan Custom were replaced.

Exactly. Bullet resistant and bullet proof are far apart.
