Weaponized Tampa Appreciation & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Weaponized Tampa

"Back in the 60's a heavy muscle car with a reinforced frame seemed like a great idea because of all the drunk driving you needed to do. Still, perfect though it seemed, a part of you whispered the car was missing something- and trust is, when you see that sturdy foundation supporting a top-mounted minigun the final piece of the jigsaw is going to slot right into place. Throw in some industrial=grade armor and the Tampa will finally have achieved its full potential."

cid_image005_jpg@01D2D577.jpg

 

Fully upgraded this little princess is f*cking insane.

Rear mortars, proximity mines, front rockets and dual chainguns make the Weaponized Tampa a vehicle you do not want to mess with. Oh and did I mention all of these weapons are fully controllable as the main driver? You bet your ass you have the power of an army at your fingertips now.

 

*Can be used in missions and heists

*Only driver can use the weapons

*Missiles & Mortar have limited ammunition.

*Additional headlights do not work

You can have all those weapons at once?

Originally I wished that you could buy unarmed version that still had that mad max look (matte black with all that armor), but now I really want all the weapons I can get :D

Might as well spend few millions to fast track my research. I got the miniguns already.

Yeah I can't wait to get the launchers, mortars and armour to unlock this cars full potential.

But even with just the minigun upgrade its a beast of a car and has quickly become my go to mission car.

 

One question though; how effective are the mortars?

Missiles fire over head and straight forward.

Mortars are spat out/sprung out of the back of the tampa into the air and then drop to the ground, two at a time. You can be spitting those things until the cows come home.

Yes minigun can rotate.

Nope, the missiles do not home in. Just keep the vehicle straight onto your target, if all else fails you have double chainguns to rip them a new asshole.

What is the armor like on this thing? How many rockets can it take and is it bulletproof?

The stock one is fixed, but the dual minigun upgrade is a turret. Not much elevation though, so don't count on it to rip helicopters apart reliably, although it does if you happen to have a shot.

Can't sell it either.

I would have liked too to be able to remove weapons from all cars from this DLC... Also there is some sort of dirt/rust/*** overlay on the paint to make it more military looking I think? They should have added this to the livery, I can't do a black shiny tampa like this :/ And a one sticky proof armor would have been good too but well the best defense is attack I guess.

So, I need the MOC to upgrade it, but I can keep it in my CEO garage, right? I wanna sit it right next to my DoD :3

Awesome... hehe, I am getting that tampa if it kills me. Driver controls everything, right? I can wreak havoc on my own? And does it take some explosions?

And does it take some explosions?Not too many explosions, but it can take a hell of a beating. You can use it entirely solo, just scroll through the desired weapons like you would your guns, or press the horn to drop a proximity mine. I find the dual chainguns the most fun of the weapons.

It explodes after one direct hit with the RPG, just like a regular car.

Far as I know, passengers can't use the guns.

 

Rear mortars seem to be not unlimited also.

This seems like the dlc car to get, overall pretty dissapointed with the others not being soloable, looking at u apc. How's the range on those guns? Are the missiles faster than normal to make up for lack of guidance?
