Is this thing available in any races? Id like to try it out before wasting millions.

 

How fast is it?

 

I guess you can play with it in creator? If they added it. It's not in any r* races.

 

I'd guestimate it's about on par with a Titan speed-wise. Much better than 'bushka (but no jato).

It feels like the Luxor to fly. About as fast, very smooth.

If you're on Xbox I can let you fly it.

It's slow, when compared to a Hydra or Lazer or Pyro or anything else recognized as "fast".

 

And it's faster than a Bombushka, anyway.

Still think the bombs need a buff, though I did get an incredibly lucky kill on my first flight.

Were you using cluster or just regular explosive bombs?

Also, name change?

Regular, always - cluster bombs really don't do much of anything for me. I can only remember being killed by one once.

 

Oh, the name change was just some goofiness in the pit, changed back now.

Bombs suck, apart from gas... hilarious dropping that onto the race meet Import mission with my Hunter

But this thing is kinda effective when a MC is doing Stand your Ground somewhere right in the open! :D

 

Also, you don't deserve to call yourself a Volatol owner if you don't have the Princess Robot Bubblegum livery! Legit the only reason I even bought this plane. I have a Princess Robot Bubblegum mobile(Sultan RS) and now a plane! All that's missing is a Princess Robot Bubblegum boat of some kind!

Hardest decision ever - Princess Robot Bubblegum or Impotent Rage livery

First flight, taking off from sandy shores and lightly clipping a couple shrubs. Engine starts smoking.

 

Managed to land at mckenzie though.

 

Thing is BIG.

Idk. I like it for what it is. It is somewhat slow but with a fighter jet escorting you it becomes a powerful tool. Come on, 100 bombs is a pretty decent payload.

Could it be alittle faster? Of course. Should you fly solo? Use real life tactics. All bombers need an escort or two. Thats a no brainer.

Its only worth buying if you use it responsibly.

It's actually the fastest vehicle in the game at higher altitudes and straightening it out after a dive, going around 240-270 MPH. Jets have absolutely zero chance of even getting close to you when using this tactic.

Try leveling it out after a dive. It will stay at very high speeds as long as you keep it level. I've hit at least 270 MPH with this thing, 60 MPH faster than the Pyro..

I can't vouch for this yet, but that said I did see someone's videos where they were doing a good job making jets fly all the way across the map for ages chasing it.

On PS4 I always use the hood-view in the settings. But with the Volatol I got the cockpit view and can only switch to outside view, which I don't like. And I can't see much in this big cockpit!

Is this a bug? Every other plane has a full ego perspective.

I've hit at least 270 MPH with this thing, 60 MPH faster than the Pyro..Can it still throw bombs at high altitude?(Do they hit the ground) Like to know that for all the other planes as well, although it'd lack in precision.

I found I couldn't use hood-view myself actually.

There's a glitchy thing where they fall through the ground without detonating.

 

It's mixed on what people think causes it though, but altitude seems to be important. I find if I bomb under 1000ft they hit the ground properly. A little above that and they don't. But then if I get much higher, like 3000-ish feet, then it usually works again for me.

 

Wish this had huge bombs to drop. Needs nukes or daisy cutters or something.

This bird is sexy. I just wish the turrets did more damage and had a higher ROF as you aren't defending yourself very easily with those.

If it had an OTR function similar to the Ultralight (gliding) then this plane would be MUCH better, fitting as a stealth bomber.

Having a Starling escort makes the plane look cooler since both planes have a very similar body design.

We should get a crew together and do some laps of the map in a big lobby with full crewed Volatol an avenger and a few lazers in formation. See who comes to play :)

Except for the fact that it is a stealth bomber.

 

At least that's what Mrs. Rackman told us in the mission we use it.

 

You know the mission right? It's the one where the bomber is actually a useful tool that can spam bombs infinitely.

Yeah, it's a stealth bomber with the "stealth" part neutered and can't spam bombs, which would actually be the thing which would make people buy it imo

It's a high altitude tactical nuclear bomber and is about as stealthy as a barn door. Mrs. Rackman doesn't have a f*cking clue.

^And the Deluxo is supposed to be a car that can travel through time, but it's actually a combat vehicle instead. Real life applications aren't accurate in GTA, you know that very well.

The real aircraft it's based on (it's a mix of a few) aren't stealthy at all.
