Those are the IV Cavalcade rims. Why can't we buy them? Why are there no new wheels to buy in this game?

I believe those wheels are also on the BeeJay XL.

Yeah, and it sucks that you can't buy them. The same goes for the Buffalo's stock rims.

Joonas, is that just in game gold or a custom color? I don't use gold at all, but the Nightshark looks nice with it.

Yeah just ingame Brushed Gold, but with small enhancements done on the pics in PS.

It was a military vehicle last week. I think the fact that they're alternating between military vehicles and normal cars is a good thing. Perhaps some people need to understand that this game isn't made for their own personal desires, rather that it serves a broader audience who do not all agree that "something good" didn't come out today.

So does anyone know if this is modifiable at lsc or the MOC? Doesn't seem to have any weird weapon options like the apc did sooo... hope not. Research sucks.

Couple quick questions for those in the know- is the stock color on this the same as the stock APC? It appears to be *almost* matte desert tan... Perhaps a worn version or something... But I'd like this to match my APC or my OCD will never allow me to love it like it deserves. Also can I get confirmation that those of us without a MOC can customize this at LSC and use personal weapons/throwables from the driver's seat? Looking to replace my Kuaruma because it isn't my style. Thanks!

"Stock" color for NightShark is Matte Dark Earth with Rolled Steel pearlescent, Black secondary.

You can customize it in LSC and you can use weapons and throwables if you don't install Window Plates.

Sweet! If those plates are like the Tampa they're worthless anyway. Maybe they'll fix it eventually

Cool thanks, Joonas. Do you happen to know what stock color for the APC is?

Would love sell both the Kuruma (Armored) and Insurgent for this. Hopefully it can pull double duty.

Yup, I already sold my insurgent PV in anticipation of the custom insurgent pickup. If the Nightshark has decent enough bulletproofing, I'll sell the kuruma to since I only use the kuruma in heists now anyway. (And even then, is more for transport rather than bulletproofing)

How many jet strafes? The technical was just sad. The poor apc, two is all it takes. The halftrack takes about 2 goods ones as well. If anything has promise for inusurgent level armor, its the nightshark. Does anyone know the number of strafes it can handle?

I would think this could be tested with more accuracy by putting a Hydra and a Night Shark (or any other vehicle) together on a runway. Just have the Hydra parked and aimed at the side of the car, and time how long you can shoot at the vehicle until it blows up. I think that would work, wouldn't it? I'll try it later and see if it does or doesn't.

I made some screenshots of the Nightshark and it's a really nice vehicle. It rams as good as Dukes' o Death.

How's the armor? Occupied and at 100%.

Yeah, that one. I'm not sure wether we can buy armor for the Nightshark or not but I equipped 100% armor and it can survive 2 RPG hits and 5 Homing Launcher hits.

I'll test it without 100% armor in case we are not able to buy armor for it.

 

EDIT

I did a new test.

100% armor survives 2 direct hits from RPG. 3rd hit makes the tyres burn which results in explosion after.

0% armor survives just one direct hit from RPG. Lets hope R* gives us the ability to purchase 100% armor.

What about 80% armor? (armored karoombus and insurgent are bought with 80% armor on them)

Good question. Tested it with 80% armor and it survives 2 direct hits too from RPG.

Bit less armor than what I was hoping for, but it's certainly better than the kuruma on that front.

It is. Homing Launcher would take more tries to destroy the Nightshark and Kuruma already gets detroyed by one single shot from Homing Launcher.

To destroy the Nightshark, it would need 5 Homing Launchers shots and 6th destroys it. And Nightshark rams as good as Dukes'o Death.

 

Me and a friend were messing in freemode and a friendly cheater spawned a Nightshark and I was driving it.

Then I asked my friend to take the Cargobob to lift me up and guess what, that thing is heavy! :lol: He couldn't lift the Nightshark!

Would the Nightshark be a good replacement for the Insurgent? It's faster, but that's about all I could tell from driving it in the AA trailer mission.

I think the custom insurgent pickup would be a better replacement. The nightshark looks like it has less than half the armor for slightly better speed.

APC is far better than an Insurgent if you plan to use weapons in a vehicle because you can move between driver seat and gun and remain in the vehicle.

 

Insurgent you are too exposed with the wndows and Insurgent Custom you can be easily shot in driver seat or sitting on the gun turret. I got rid of both of Insurgents

due to the newer vehicles which offer slightly better protection.

Yeah, all you have to do with the APC is slam on both brakes while holding the seat switch button. A lot of people whined about not having full control like with the Tampa, but the APC would be a bit OP if that were the case. It really is the best available armored vehicle when you factor the turrets and mines into the equation.

But the APC is slower, you can still be shot out of the windows in front and on the sides, and it has less armor (especially against jet/savage cannons, it can only take 8 shots, insurgent can take 27. I also prefer the insurgent for ramming through vehicles.

 

The heavy plating on the insurgent makes the front windshields bulletproof and gives the gunner a lot of protection,especially if they duck.

 

I love my APC, but I'd only use it over the insurgent pickup custom if I'm not trying to escape, do hit and runs, or I'm not going across the map with supplies. If I'm just in a battle somewhere, especially at the beach, then the APC outshines all.
