Recommended Posts

The Warlock

I've seen a couple "Real Car names threads" but nothing like this, so, as resident gun nut, I decided to start one. Here goes.

 

Pistol: ?

.357: Colt Python

Shotgun: Ithaca 37 "Homeland Security"

Stubby Shotgun: Ithaca 37 "Stakeout"

S.P.A.S. 12: Franchi SPAS-12

Tec 9: Tec-9 (illegally converted)

Mac: MAC Ingram M-10

Uz-1: IMI Uzi

MP: H&K MP5 (one of the 50-odd variations)

Kruger: Ruger AC-556F

M4: CAR-15

Rocket Launcher: RPG7

Sniper Rifle: Remington 700

.308 Sniper: H&K PSG-1

M60: M60E3

Minigun: GE XM214

Flamethrower: Not based off of a real weapon

Grenade: M67 Fragmentation Grenade

Hunter: AH-64 Apache

Rhino: Not based off of a real tank

 

If anybody wants to correct me on any of these or has any more information, please post.

Victim of a Down

Pistol is Colt 45 isn't it.

And what about the moltov cocktail. It's real name is moltov cocktail.

And who's H&K? They made MP5 AND the PSG1.

 

Cool thread. Maybe it should be pinned?

The M4 is actually an m4 carbine, a smaller version of the m16.

 

No, it's not. The M4 didn't come into service until 1994, and this game takes place in the '80s. The CAR-15 is the predecessor to the M4 and came around in the '70s. It looks nearly identical to the M4.

 

CAR-15:

M4 Carbine:

.45 is just the caliber of ammunition. I'm not entirely sure what pistol it is. It looks like a 1911, but it has way more ammo in the clip. I'm looking into it.

 

And who's H&K? They made MP5 AND the PSG1.

And H&K is Heckler & Koch, a German gun company that is famous for the MP5 submachine gun, but also makes PSG sniper rifles, G3 and G36 assault rifles, and they even designed a prototype gun that uses caseless ammunition, the G11, but had to stop just before distribution because their funding for the project was cut.

Are you sure that "Heckler & Koch" are German? Last time I checked they were owned by British Aerospace Systems, and manufactured guns from a plant in Sheffield (as well as Germany)

The Kruger appears to be a Ruger AC-556F but I'm not entirely sure.

 

BTW Victim of a Down it's Molotov. :)

Actually, about the list above ^ ,the flame thrower is a real weapon. It was used in World War 2 and Vietnam.  ;)

 

Happy shooting kids.......

Yeah, but the in-game flamethrower isn't based off of any real flamethrower. In real life, a flamethrower requires a big-ass tank of fuel on your back, or else it won't work long enough. The tiny tank of fuel on the GTA flamethrower is enough for maybe a second and a half of burnination, if that.

well, vice city is not the most realistic game I.E you die and come back to life, you survive 5 story drops by just rolling and dont have a scratch to show for it, or after killing hundreds of cops and civilians you get away by changing the color of ur car. if the game was meant to be realistic it would not be nearly as fun. I think we can say that the flamethrower is based off a real-life flamethrower, right?  :D

Stubby Shotgun: Remington 870 (illegaly cut down)

 

 

Stubby looks like a Mossberg 590 w/ pistol grip.

They weren't hard to get; the Soviet Union was replacing them with AK-74s and disposing of all of the outdated AK-47s, which is why they have such a reputation for availiability. R* just didn't want to put them in.

@Some Bloke

They're a german firm anyway, I guess.

 

@The Warlock

Interesting that Rockstar named the CAR-15 "M4" in the game, although it can't be an M4.

 

The grenade doesn't look like a fragmentation grenade. It's black and has a plane surface.

I'm no expert, but don't fragmentation grenades have that segmented surface? It's the hull that is fragmented, I think.

From what I've heard R* did actually screw up with the M4 and introduce a weapon that wasn't available during the 80's but then again I could be wrong :)

Hehe, you never stop learning.  :)

 

Grenades are very funny if thrown in the middle of the Malibu dancefloor. Makes a nice circle of corpses. :devil:

I think you're right. It looks like a Mossberg 590 AOW. Does anybody know what the chrome-plated shotgun is?

No, because it's not. :D It's okay that it's not realistic, but that doesn't make it a real weapon.

Just because you don't think it's useful doesn't mean it isn't. If that's all you had to say, why did you post? I don't think YOUR post is useful, but even though I said it, you aren't going to do anything about it :D.

Not sure what you mean. Colt has made several different carbines. Where did you read the name "Colt Carbine"? Was it in a different game?

Link to comment

I have the name from Jaggeed Alliance 2.

I think, the gun's model code "CAR" stands for "Carbine".

 

CORRECTION: I was wrong. I have the name from somewhere else, but don't know from where.

 

By the way: What exactly is the Colt Commando then?

CAR stands for Carbine ArmaLite, I think. The AR-15 is the early version of the M16, and the CAR-15 is a shortened version of the AR-15. AR stands for ArmaLite, the company that made the AR15 before it was bought out by Colt.

Yeah, that's an M4 Carbine. W00t3Ge! I got an Assault Rifle named after me, cool... even though I already knew about the M4 Carbine.

Okay, I found out what the shotguns are. The long one is an Ithaca 37 "Homeland Security" and the short one is an Ithaca 37 "Stakeout". Here are pictures:

 

"Homeland Security":

"Stakeout":

Still don't know about the pistol, though.

The names aren't really important; anybody could change them. I just wish they made the weapons more realistic. For instance, you never have to reload a shotgun or bolt-action rifle. Apparently, it carries infinite ammunition in the internal magazine :sarcasm:. And the only handgun I know of that can hold 17 rounds in a clip is a Glock, and the GTA pistol looks nothing like a freaking Glock!
