Nope, no way. Once bought, it's yours to keep.

Oh well, I might as well give it the best paint job I can.

 

Thanks.

id love this thing if it had any lethal weapon atall. just to dick about in missions with, or if it was bulletproof, or explosion resistant. but as it stands it's just a pv fire truck.

Dunno if it was patched during a hotfix or like something like that, but yesterday i saw one of those. It needed 5 stickys to blow up. So yes, it has explosion resistance.

The hose on the firetruck was the most lethal weapon in GTAO back on last-gen, only thing that could kill through walls even when the players were a significant distance away, could arc it over sh*t and even kill passive players and this f*cking thing has two of em.

So, has the world ended by players having access to a Police Vehicle with Sirens? No? Then can we have Emergency vehicles please?

Civilian versions of all Emergency vehicles and the armoured trucks would be great as well.

This. I agree with this 110%. Id love a regular current gen stanier, police transporter or a regular riot truck on which we can put the gunrunning liveries on and have them as personal vehicles.

If ur on PC, probably a modded one or maybe one used for the setup mission tbh. Edited by Duckdude001

Now that you say it, this could be the case. I was wondering why 4 guys sit in this thing and why they where so pissed at me for blowing it up. :D

So, in short, the RCV is basically just a vehicle for people who want to drive and customize an Emergency Vehicle, but isnt really good for anything pratical. It be cool for Roleplaying in Invite Only, of course, but better to not use this in Public Lobbies.

I like it for how it's bigger and more intimidating than the Armored Boxville. It doesn't always launch cars as spectacularly, but it's just as great when it does.

I see the world STILL has not ended from having Sirens.

Can we have Police vehicles now?

Yes!!! i would love that, the lspd police cruiser (interceptor) is like the only vehicle in-game without a civilian version of it. I would love to drive with a standard version of the interceptor!

I think that a flamethrower on top is very unlikely

 

but for reals - if it was a flamethrower then they would add it as a weapon as well

and since we didn't see any - I'm guessing its just a water cannon (or regular turret...)

 

I just though of something

flamethrower is unlikely but...

 

replacing water with gasoline would be easy right? It's already in the game. I hope they did that.

Would be rly fun to spray people and then shot to ignite it.

I approvings this Gasoline idea & post

It's not the best in the world, it's just something different.

 

- Has an actual impressive top speed for it's size/& what you'd expect.

- Good ramming capability with the plow in front.

- Rear cab passengers can use firearms.

- Water Cannon is pretty good to take out hostile NPCs in situations with sensitive objectives.

- Traffic moves out of your way or stops when siren is active/just like normal law enforcement vehicles.

- 2 additional players can hang off the side.

- Pretty lights.

 

 

 

More or less it's not a PvP vehicle, but co-op PvNPC vehicle. That water cannon can kill npcs relatively easily, without blowing up packages or vehicles around them. Although the driver & front passenger can only use the water cannons, rear occupants can use their guns, same with the additional 2 players that hang onto the sides. It's a nice escort vehicle, as it can ram through pretty much any form of traffic & maintain most, if not all it's speed in a ramming. Also you can put out fires on damaged vehicles or aircraft, or fires in general that risk causing something important to catch fire or persist to burn till destroyed.

 

Personally I kinda like it, nice to have a PV where instead of weaving or ramming through traffic, all that's needed it turning on the sirens & everyone moves out of the way.

Also it's quite a tank vs npc vehicles, can block entire directions of traffic on highways. I've been using it in missions where you have to halt a fleeing npc in a vehicle, stopping them dead in their tracks so other players can simply move in with a walk-up shot to the target. Fun way to help out all the new players starting from this holiday where normally they'd just chase the target vehicle until they blow it up/destroy the item.

 

I've grown to use it now & then when I get tired of flying cars, helicopters, & other "normal/common" approaches that I see used most of the time nowadays.

I agree with the above post.

Like the Chernobog its an underrated secret. Most people blew it off straight away because you cant use it to cheese and grief other players.

3 Things To Mention:

 

 

#1: The RCV has a $20,000 insurance deductible.

Given it's non-existent explosion resistance + it's large size, that combo makes it ideal for trolling other players via them destroying it, intentionally or accidentally.

 

#2: With the Vehicle Remote function, you can turn the engine on which will turn the flashing tail-lights on, but only if you left the actual police lights on prior to exiting the RCV.

Just adds more flashing attention to the rear, identical to when you're actually driving it with the sirens/lights on.

 

 

 

#3: The lighting effects from the 3 side lights (3 red on left, 3 blue on right) are different against surfaces.

Only the middle red light has an effect on surfaces, including on the ground.

So as the lighting effect only exists for one side red light, it has an on/off flashing appearance on objects.

The effects for blue light side operates as expected though, with it cycling between lighting effects of the 1st & 3rd lights, to the the 2nd light.

So whomever designed the RCV, either got really f'n lazy or just forgot to implement the lighting effects for the 1st & 3rd red lights on the left side.

 

Example, look at how the red & blue lights shine on the walls:

I can't even express how terrible it looks with full chrome, a new level of eyesore when it comes to that paint.

You literally turn it into a huge reflective mirror to roll down highways.

Even tried combining it with crew colors like White, Blue, Red, etc......AND with a livery, but it still looks horrible.

 

xRjgVfPh7UKVo9NVacwVqA_0_0.jpg

 

 

 

On another note regarding the in-complete lighting effects, I had a "eh, might as well" moment & submitted a ticket to R* about it, showing that gif I posted before here.

At first I received the typical copy & paste response from the average incompetent R* support member.

So I went ahead & called the person out on the response, just to see what would happen, I recieved a new tier/leveled response from another R* support member.

It seems at least to some degree they eventually read & respond to actual independent issues, this second time the new R* employee offered direct recognition.

Making progress........1 week at a time. :lol:

Can the RCV ram cars all day long like the Armored Boxville? Or does it start smoking after a while like the P.Wedge?
