Buckingham Pyro Discussion & Appreciation

Recommended Posts

Nasty Noodles

Buckingham Pyro

"You want to rain death from the skies just like any other bearded twenty-something, but gun-metal grey and swept back wings are so mainstream. You need something that suggests old world expertise and class - like a manual transmission, or that cut-throat razor you're too frightened to use. Well look no further: with its twin-boom, single-engine vintage styling, the Pyro is the high-fidelity vinyl of air superiority.

The following modifications will be available; (Thanks Bob)

-10 liveries
-missile upgrade
-countermeasures
-engine
-armor
-handling

Massive thanks to JoonasPRKL for the images!

Sleek, fast and agile. I fell in love within seconds.
Based on the irl Vampire T11 A 1940s British fighter jet, One of the first of it's kind to be powered by a jet engine.

If you're able to, could you post the available livery options that this has? I love the Vampire IRL and in other games, can't wait for this.

I only had access to the aircraft when doing a stealing mission so have no idea sorry. If someone on pc wants to answer your question that would be awesome.

Was nice in a steal mission, but only had a machine gun (probably a pair of them). No missiles or bombs or flares. The owned version may have those as options. Handled decently, since I had to dodge missiles with it.

For anyone who wonders it has:

 

-10 liveries

-missile upgrade

-countermeasures

-engine

-armor

-handling

 

Not sure what to think of it, no cannon or bombs.. So it's competing with the Molotok I guess?

Holy crap, a Vampire! Strange that it doesn't have the standard armament of 4 cannons under the nose though.

IMO the best thing next to the Hunter that came out of this DLC aircraft-wise. Seriously it's so bloody good. Also it's a twin-boom plane, which we never had in the GTA series so I'm happy.

Shame we can't have the real Hunter to fly alongside it. :p

Could someone post some decent pics of the pyro? Would be nice to show this aircraft in all of it's glory while we wait.

There are quite a few videos on YouTube, including one showing it flying perfectly well with its entire tail broken off...

 

 

 

p.s. I like this guy...he gets straight into the content with no talking, and the sh*tty music only appears at the end.

Tried it during the mission, as everyone else.

 

Good looking, poor weapons, good speed.

Very good speed actually.

 

2 seater, so it might become a good cruiser, to replace the Vestra.

I'm 100% buying this, maybe not immediately when it comes out because I want to buy the Nokota first, but definitely sometime. There's a real life Vampire(inspiration for this) at a nearby aviation museum that I plan to go to at some point, maybe I'll try my best to make my future Pyro look like that Vampire.

I've done 47 missions so far and I haven't seen it yet, are you guys sure there's a supply mission with this in it? :(

Yes, there is a mission where you have to steal the pyro in the hangar of the sandy shores airfield. It flies really good.

I've never gotten that one D:

 

Is it because I have a FZ hangar, I'm too close??

Nope, i have my hangar at the fort too. It´s totally random which mission you get.

The mission regarding this one is at Sandy Shores air field: you will be asked to steal a plane parked inside the hangar, it's the Pyro.

 

I have my own hangar at Zancudo, so it's not a matter of proximity.

Maybe you had it but you blew it up accidentally? It doesn't fail the mission, since you can now collect the crates also by destroying the target vehicle.

For f*cks sake, this plane would be perfect to put an explosive cannon on. Hydra and Lazer are still the only planes worth dogfighting with. They pretty much pre-nerfed the Molotok and Nokota by giving them pea shooters. These planes are so beautiful and fun to fly but I still bring my Hydra out for heavy lifting.

For f*cksake, the old jets would be perfect with a non explosive cannon.

The Rogue has explosive cannons, too... but a much lower fire rate and it's a plane.

The Savage as well, but we all now it is nothing more then a flying cannon.

"Pea shooters" lol...

The Molotok can brake just as good, if not better than the Besra, has good acceleration, flares, good handling and then you are complaining about it having "pea shooters" lol.

Have you ever used it ?

 

Seriously, I don't get what the f*ck is so fun about 'dogfighting' with jets that have high-rof, explosive cannons, can anyone explain ?

 

I use 'em if I have to, but I just enjoy flying 'em. Either Rogue-like cannons or miniguns with long range would make it MUCH better.

Removing sniper+hydra+lazer noob rounds would improve game balancs, too !

 

 

 

I would like a long-range gun on the Savage and giving it the armour it deserves, too...

But there is no need to remove it's cannon AND keep the sh*t armour (even after the update it's pure sh*t)

I've encountered plenty of hyda/lazer uses using the explosive cannon and I find it best to fight them from above at a distance so that their manoeuvrability is limited and the cannons not having enough reach.

I get that. But the explosive cannons the old jets have are simply the best way to win a dogfight. I wish they had regular .50 cal guns.

I wish explosive cannons were never a thing in this game, dogfighting is so much more fun when you can't just blow the enemy up the second they're in your sights. Now that there are countermeasures, homing missiles aren't that effective either, so if there were no explosive cannons it would be down to pure dogfighting skill with regular cannons/machine guns and non-homing rockets.

Agreed, for the most part. Explosive canon should be restricted to dedicated attack aircraft, i.e. the savage (being slow, weak, and otherwise not much of a threat to jets) and the hunter because the gun is locked to a copilot. Normal guns should be much more effective against other aircraft though. Jets (and most helos) are fragile machines, a well placed burst of 20mm canon would shred most of em, but be less effective against ground targets unless they could score a direct hit. Glad they finally implemented bursts of dumbfire rockets, that's what the buzzard should have had all along, and also most of these new aircraft that have homing missiles (starling, nokota, etc).

Savage imo should be tough as sh#t and have a normal gun like the Anilhator's minigun.

Also, if normal guns do more damage, I think the range of the weapons of most helos should be beefed up as well.

The range of the Anilhator is not really good,

The range of the Buzzard is bad,

And the range of the Savage is just just a joke imo.

Do you think it will stand as a "small", or a "medium" plane?

Just to make plans about my showroom...

 

Hydra is medium while Vestra is small, so I'm not sure where this one will land.
