What's the controls to hover?

 

 

Press the right button on the D-Pad. Can't remember if you tap or hold it in though, not flown this plane yet.

This thing is totally overpriced and not really worth it for utility at all... but I don't care at all, and already can tell I will have a lot of free mode fun just f**king around with it with my friends.

Tap to V-TOL and hold to open bomb bay. This heli is so fun to fly, I'd buy it if it wasn't for the price tag. Saving money for the Hunter and P-51 Stang.

Few takeaways.... just my opinion don't @ me


I feel like the JATO engine needs a slight buff. Even if it is a large aircraft, you got four heavy-duty motherf/cking propellers to do the job... takeoff is extremely slow in the default JATO mode leaving you vulnerable for small-arms fire (which also seem to f/ck you up too easily considering you're in a armored craft...) and depending on how many enemies, you might have even lost 2 propellers by the time you take off or you're smoking in 1 at least. You need to be very selective of landing/parking this thing even with maxed out armor.... dumb. The engines go out way too easy when you're shot while going up, making you effectively lose power.

 

 

Secondly, I'm going to get hated probably lol but carpet bombing needs to be tuned a bit somehow with the splash or base damage or something. I've made a post on reddit about this too but I've noticed the carpet bombs seem lacking in punch, as devastating as they are destroying vehicles, they don't seem to have the same knockout power versus people on foot, maybe due to accuracy and the fact that you don't drop an immediate 5-8 payloads at once, they leave the airplane 1-by-1 in a (fairly) regular rate. I've held down my carpet bomb button in JATO mode over an immediate area with massive numbers of red dots only for them to shoot me down faster than I can annihilate them with all the scattering bombs...that somehow seem to just flinch NPCs or either kill them outright if its direct hit or under the bomb umbrella. No real dangerous splash.... and you're limited on the bombs. Seems around 30-40? payloads of bombs before you have to end up returning it to base or recalling it

 

Edit: okay so I'm hearing cluster bombs don't work atm

^ I think your JATO is bust, mine makes it take off like a... well, rocket. Amusingly fast.

 

Edit - rereading your comment about bombing, you're saying JATO but meaning VTOL :) First is rocket motors for a sharp exit (Jet Assisted Take Off), second is Vertical Take-Off and Landing mode ie wings up.

Ah yeah, thanks for the correction but either way the takeoff is way too slow if you're going straight up vertically is what I meant. If you have room to glide into the air using the regular plane mode then it's alright I guess for its speed/size. Really wish cluster bombs was hotfixed/fixed

 

Also, idk whatever it is, something definitely seems lacking about it for a $6 million dollar plane. From not being able to use your own flares as the driver to the "Machine Guns" on the nose of the plane....which IMO also should probably be allowed to be upgraded to a 90 degree rotatable dual .50 or a minigun (something like the guns of the Weaponized Tampa) instead of the default peashooters that are the same guns as on the Buzzard, Nightshark, etc. -- you're basically rendered useless if you drive this thing solo and you run out of bombs to drop cause then you're forced to hop on your tail gunner (rear gunner gets a option of .50, dual .50 or minigun) as the only viable way to defend yourself.. the stock MG just tickles NPCs so you're better off getting out and using your own guns at that point

get in tula

tank 2 homing missiles shot at me

cool I can finally test that expensive upgrade that gives me flares

right click on d-pad

shift into vtol mode

take both hits that disable the tula

like a minute later fail to land the Tula and it blows

the dude who shot the homing missiles claimed my bounty

gg

 

 

is there some special button combo to press to deploy flares or am I missing something?

I fully support the need for another bank of JATOs pointing straight down :D

 

What's wrong with cluster bombs? I saw the video where it reveals everything is a bit poo, but how do we know they need fixing?

For as far as I know only the co-pilot can use the flares.

So.. Either you need a co-pilot or you need to fly in passive mode.

 

This plane isnt really useful for doing missions in public sessions, its only good for some fun.

So, is it faster than a heli (a Buzzard, for example)?

 

How many people can it take on board?

What about the armor? Can it survive the homing missle?

Its slower than top performing choppers while not in VTOL mode, 5 people, and it tanked 2 homing missiles but got disabled and engines cut out.

https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/6ww5eq/smugglers_run_carpet_bomb_splash_damage/

 

I can't confirm 100% but I posted that & people responded with that answer. I posted that after doing several contact missions with my Tula where it felt like only direct hits with the initial bomb would kill NPCs but it felt like the clusters did absolutely nothing or were ineffective in damage/splash... NPCs just came out unharmed or flinched when the explosions were pretty close or nearby.

 

Some people are saying it doesnt even work at all (no damage)? and if it does work/deal damage, it seems very weak or needs to be a direct line of fire hit or straight under the bomb?

 

edit: also on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/6x4dqr/psa_dont_buy_cluster_bombs/

 

Confirmed, Clusters don't work right now it's glitched.

So far the Tula is the only aircraft that has earned my respect in this DLC:

First time I did the cargo mission for it I felt like I was back in World at War doing the Black Cats mission.

Oh man tell me about it. That mission stuck with me and it was just an on rails shooter! I'd have preferred the Tula to be a Catalina but I'm not complaining.

I laugh every time I see this plane. My crew member has one and he absolutely loves it. I said "You look like Browser from Super Mario 3, dude if you don't get your Peter Pan ass out the sky!!"

 

Couldn't figure it out where I've seen it before then one my homegirls text me and she said "Isn't that the plane from 'TailSpin' " I immediately died laughing.

I'm not sure about this. For 3.8m at the discounted price, it seems...excessive for what you actually get. Still, nice looking though (two too many engines for my personal taste).

I started grinding money out to buy it, but honestly, I think i'll pass and spend that money on a Nakota and a Pyro.

Love this plane. Finally got it today. I flew one on a mission with only two engines halfway accross the map. 3.8 mil well spent.

It's a shame the VTOL stops you from using countermeasures. I wish there was either an option to swap them in the workshop or just map the VTOL function onto another button. A slower plane like this really needs some sort of defense from other attackers.

So it seems like the Tula can do that VTOL speed trick that the Hydra can do, too. Weave it mid air like a dolhin, and it goes very fast. Haven't done a drag race yet, but it can probably overtake a lazer.

VTOL and jet assist

 

I'm in heaven

 

Enjoying the view from chiliad on my new favorite ship to tour around in

 

I do think it sucks only passenger can use countermeasures

The sole reason I bought the Tula. Play Black Cats track and get another player with another black Tula. f*cking awesome... HAMMERHEAD DOWN :p

What VTOL speed glitch? I have liteally never heard of it before

Why not just switch the roles from the interaction menu (vehicle section)?

Get your altitude above the second line. Orientate yourself towards the direction you want to go, you will not be able to steer while doing this. Accelerate and tilt the aircraft nose down at the same time, then brake and tilt the nose up. Find a rythm to do this at, it should be around every 0.5 seconds. You will go almost twice the speed that you're normally able to go at, this is the fastest way to travel around the map.

 

I learned it from this video, but the trick has been known much longer already I think:
