RM-10 Bombushka Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

 

Welp. I expected this to happen with the Bombuska. A flying paper plane with kitten claws for weapons. I will buy it because I can but this thing will probably never see the light of day. Rockstar loves disappointing people.

 

It really is a nice looking plane and could've been so much more than what it is now...

how are the guns? i thought they were long range death beams.

 

cant use them solo so idk

 

.

They are terribly slow to maneuver and its not as fast to shoot down something. The guns are long range for a good reason though and they are accurate. You better make sure your gun crew can aim good. LOL.

The wasted potential. Come on. This could have been a great tool for players loving co op, if it had the resistance it deserved.

 

They force us to go in public lobbies to make cash, and they give us a useless tool. Again.

well f*ck.

 

i hope the guns can atleast turn faster than the plane can orbit a target or its truely sh*t.

 

although if they are long range and can fly outside homer range it's alright for griefing noobs, not that there's a shortage of things to do that

Can you at least hold triangle/Y on the ground to use the gun, or is there no way for the player who owns it to use the guns..?

No, but the pilot can use the bombs and countermeasures, so I think I'll be using this big boi for bombing instead of my cuban!

 

The good news is though, you only really need one person in addition to yourself, because they can switch between the guns. me and my GF worked well together on a few missions, she could switch between the top, bottom, and rear gun just fine.

 

Edit: About the guns, she said it was hard to aim them while I was going into a turn or whatever, but they seem to have a pretty far range and the explosive cannons will kill NPC buzzards in two shots.

 

Edit #2: the rear cannon is super useful, you can't outrun enemies in the bombushka but your partner can move into it and take them out! Also, a small detail I just remembered, the old tape reels spin in the back, I love it x3

I can 200% vouche for this^

 

Like with any multi-player vehicle - the more people manning the guns - THE BETTER.

Yos! Also, since it's so slow and it can fly itself, I feel like it's gonna make a great bomber!

 

 

You see, the bombushka has no turbulence, and if you let go of the controls it will fly itself straight and level with no necessary input on your part except from an adjustment every so often to keep you on course. So if you're fine with taking your time and coming in for a long run, it looks like it will be amazing for bombing runs. I was really hoping it would hold more than 50 tho....

Damn. Using the guns would be kinda pointless on the ground probably, but I just wanted to sit at the vintage moniters and enjoy the posters in first person :( guess I'll pass for now.

Can someone stand on the top of it while flying like the *cargo plane?

 

 

*I want that online R*. Boring spoil sports.

I'll have to test it tomorrow when I try, I didn't think of it.....

 

 

Also another note, it has slightly weird physics, nothing bad like the rogue's broken handling but for example, you can't fly straight down at the ground.... like some sort of autostabilization but on a plane.

 

 

Anyway, it is 8 am and I am taking my fat ass to bed, goodnight!

AMEN.

 

One rocket launcher to be destroyed. Or 3 explosive sniper. Really disappointed.

So now that it's out. Any way of opening the back of it? And any engine upgrade for this thing?

 

You can't open the back- you have to "shoot it open- not recommended btw".

 

Engine Uprades- YES- Makes little to no difference without Rocket Assisted Takeoff addon.

Some gameplay, took a while to find someone to pilot it for me so I could fug around with the guns

 

 

 

Thing is pretty nimble, landed it in places a plane of this size normally would give me trouble

Ok, how big is it if you put it in the hangar?

Can you put two medium aircraft in front of it if you put it at the rear end of your hangar? I would like to have it on display with my savage, swift, frogger and cuban 800.

Basicly a: rear of the hangar

-----------Bombushka--------

--Savage---------------Swift

------------Frogger------------

--Cuban 800--------------

front of the hangar

,setup inside the hangar.

Thanks. I like how the plane looks like a true gunship but the speed, resistance and the fact that it will most likely collect dust in my hangar keeps me from buying it TBH. Rather save my money for the pyro and hunter.

Its large, 2 large aircraft will fill your hangar, you can see in the video I posted

what vehicles fade out, you're plan seems feasible. Edited by CrysisAverted

Needs a bomb capacity of 150, should take 10 missiles to destroy and have the ability to open the cargo bay ramp. Then it will be good.

Glad this was released. Passing on this though, but I'm happy for those who really wanted this big thing. I'll be saving up for the Nokota.

If I have 46 mil and have the discounted price, should I go for it? I also want the Hunter and maybe Nokota but their toward the end of the trade price list so might get the Bombushka specially since I was waiting for a looooooonnng time. Opinions?

So this has elements of the AC 130, but what is the Russian plane it draws the other half of it's inspiration from?

This is not to be rude but I didn't expect this thing to be a fortress in the Sky, since none of the new planes are really worth it if you own a Hydra

It's mostly based on the antonov an-12

Unless you want it for the looks, and f*cking around with your friends, don't get it.

It's super useless for missions, pvp and everything else.

 

Basically an air yacht.

The cost of the rest of the vehicles in the drip feed combined is something like 30m at trade prices before upgrades.

 

If you want it, get it. But as others have said, it's pretty much useless.
