This jet bomber / gunship is closly inspired by the british Avro (Hawker Siddeley) Vulcan with elements of the Avro 722 Atlantic. The jet is armed with bombs and rotating cannons, as seen on the Bombushka.

"A lot of things become clear while you're in the cockpit of a Volatol. As you glide along in the blissful quiet of high-altitude flight, you find yourself at peace, reflective, content. And thousands of feet below, the shadow of your colossal delta wing ripples silently across towns, cities and states, followed by the atomizing roar of heavy ordnance. This is how it was meant to be."

Excluded from Pegasus Lifestyle Management and must be stored in a personal hangar.

Weapons: Top and Nose Turrets (Dual .50 Cal Turrets)

Bombs: 100 capacity (Explosive, Incendiary, Gas OR Cluster)

f*ck those turrets. Really, just f*ck them. Ruins the lines, and makes no sense on a bomber designed to fly fast and high. Also, as I said in the other topic:

 

I really hope that isn't the finished sound for the Vulcan; that thing tears the sky apart with an air-buggering roar in real life...in that clip it sounds like a washing machine from Tron.

I don't like that turret on top. It's ugly as hell.

 

I hope it can be removed.

looks like the bombuska is being thrown in the dustbin of gta online then. no chance of it being buffed if you can buy this instead.

and what's with the little sam battery on the hill? that looks new and it doesn't seem to be manned.

I totally agree. It ruins the overall look. And as someone who's witnessed Vulcans fly over, they are terrifyingly loud. I think the sound in the trailer is just a sound effect though, as it's been used in other trailers with jets (I really hope it's just that anyway).

Yeah. It sucks how much they're ignored the Bombushka. That plane has so much potential. I think the sam batteries are just part of the mission.

I really like this. I also really like my useless Bombushka. But I might have to trade in the Bombushka for this.

I have a feeling this will be just as weak and useless as the Bombushka. Call me a pessimist but I have gotten used to rockstar ruining good concepts.

The turrets look ok. The plane has has to defend itself somehow, ugly or not.

I'm hoping this has something to it that makes it a better bomber than what we have. Because the Hunter and Starling already both do as good of a job as you can get when it comes to bombing. Larger payload, more bombs dropping at once, unlimited bombs; something that will entice people to use it over other aircraft.

Nose/ dorsal turret? Theyre ugly as all f*ck but Im selling my soon-to-be completely obsolete Bombushka tomorrow. No need to keep it around and I have a feeling $75 million might not be quite enough for this DLC, so Ill take all the funds I can get.

From the trailer, even though it looks like the plane is dropping 5 bombs at a time like other bombers, they come out really fast and the explosions lack any spaces on the ground. In other words, it looks like a proper carpet bomber. This could just be an illusion though to make the trailer look more entertaining.

It looks nice but if its just a reskinned bombushka, I will wait for a sale tbh.

I disagree. The new moc has two fire control system computers, but the tilt rotor doesnt have 2 turrets, just a pilot controlled nose gun similar to the tula, but this has 2 turrets and more inside space.

The Osprey is going to be the Air MOC.

This is definitely not the MOC interior thing in the trailer. You can see that it's got a ramp in the back, and the Vulcan's rear can't accommodate that. The Osprey, however, is shaped that way.

the osprey could easily have guns that you can't see in the trailer, or maybe they just aren't equipped. (moc ones are an upgrade)

The osprey doesnt have the 2 remote control cannons. There are 2 cannon controls shown in the interior in the trailor. Osprey only has one small nose gun. 


We can go round n round or just wait till tuesday lol.

You mean only one that you can see. There could be one on the tail we can't see, or a ventral one.

Not saying I believe this, in fact I really don't because R* is known for not updating their old vehicle models(without adding a new version or upgrade you have to buy), but maybe this Air MOC interior will be added to the Bombushka. It has the ramp at the back and plenty of turrets to accomodate the turret controls in the interior picture.

My first thought was Bombushka, but those gun stations look totally different and aren't labeled in Russian.

Its either the vulcan or a completly diffrent aircraft.
It definitly NOT the tilt-rotor.

If you think the MOC-style interior is the Vulcan, then you are blind and know nothing about the plane. The only crew spaces in a Vulcan are in the nose section; there is no room in the rear fuselage for a command centre, let alone a ramp...it's just not big enough.
