That is some serious wingspan. Larger target, but if it means more weapon payload it could be an advantage.

What if shooting this thing down results in an entire region of the map getting bombed?

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.


There's no way this thing is going to be as slow as the Bombushka, which is reason enough to trade that old pile of junk for this.

I expect this will be functionally identical to the Bombushka, except much faster.

I just had a sudden urge to paint my future Volatol white.

So it will be a big useless flying target, except much faster ? :D

I really want to see its cockpit, this one looks so sexy outside, no way it's ugly inside ....

This thing is a major disappointment speed wise. 

 

It's way too slow given the plane it's supposed to be (Vulcan Bomber).

I don't think I'm going to buy this. Entirely too slow for a jet bomber and you can't bomb anything at high altitudes. Oh and I forgot it is just as weak as the Bombushka.

I'm a really, really sad dude right now...

What about first person cockpit, anyone has a pic? Is it a 2 seater or more ?

It's gorgeous. I think I will be trading my Bombushka for this one, even if it's got one less turret and is still a slow big target. How slow is it really, by the way? Bombushka slow? Titan slow?

Slow as a the Luxor jets or the Shemal.

 

A true jet bomber flies a little faster than that.

Ahh. That's honestly not as bad as I'd expected it to be. Either way, I shall pick it up as soon as I have the trade price unlocked. Do we know if that's part of Act II or III?

Really disappointed by what i've seen in videos. Not sure how this is better than say, the Rogue. Or the free Cuban that comes with bombs. It's max payload is still only 50 bombs, and it still only carpet bombs with five at a time.

 

It's a beautiful plane but even as long-time Vulcan fan, i'm struggling to justify buying this, though if it were this or the Bushka, at trade price of 2.8 it's more worth the money than the Bushka. Which is okay I guess?

Curiously enough, I actually have a working bomb counter in the Volatol and it carries a payload of 100 bombs instead of the usual 50. Not exactly a practical aircraft but, minus the turrets, it's absolutely beautiful.

 

Had to toss up between replicating XH558 and anti-flash white for mine, but in the end I settled for the white:

I think you've just convinced me to buy this plane and paint it exactly the same as yours. (hope you don't mind)

How much hanger space does it take up. An awful lot I assume?

So they just doubled the payload and let you carpet bomb faster? That's underwhelming :/.

Really like the look of it, it's enormous and seems powerful. Does somebody knows why there is an Impotent Rage and a Princess Robot Bubblegum livery in those options ? Is it a real-life reference ? 

 

PS : What is the type of white you used on your XH558, Professional Amateur ?

So you can't store aircraft in the new facility's right? I'm gonna have to boot some of aircraft from my hangar to store this right?

I just bought it and its a total dissapointment. It can't even drop more than 5 bombs at once despite it's size making it useless.

 

2 seats to front and a wall behind you if you look back.
