Used the RC car to get a closer up editor view without being seen. This guy was getting griefed by a B-11 - he actually had to try to finish himself off for it to kill him.

Wasn't just some level 5 flying it either, guy had a k/d of about 6. I'd guess he regrets his purchase lol.

Pathetic.

I'm in the Akula about 90% of the time I'm playing GTA. The B-11 makes up most of the other 10%, even if it spawns like this...

Holy sh*t... very interesting (or not)...

 

So, I was one of the people from the get-go saying the B-11 Strikeforce Cannon hadn't been buffed. Well I'm afraid to say that I was wrong, and the change they did was subtle and probably won't be noticed... wowsers. 
In the mission "Air Defenses" where you fly the Volatol bomber to take out SAM sites, the bombs that plane has specifically for that mission have a much larger than normal blast radius and deal a good amount of damage. They're known as "BOMB_STANDARD_WIDE" essentially.

 

Well the B-11 Strikeforce Cannon (and also Rogue Explosive MG) has that type of explosion effect (EXP_TAG_BOMB_STANDARD_WIDE) whenever the cannon hits an **aircraft** since the Arena War update (from what I can tell). 
What's interesting is that the ammo data used for this - in accordance with the files - doesn't seem to be changed (from what I can / can't see). 

 

I would guess this means it's a script running in / on the game to change the data once loaded. Actually bamboozled that's the method used, because it again looks at how they've made the B-11 an Air to Air option rather than a proper ground attack.

I can't even imagine the bullsh*t and headache that would be this aircraft with buffed cannons like the Lazer and the Hydra

 

Just ask R* to nerf the cannon of the Jets please, I have PTSD enough already.

So it sort of has a larger blast when it hits an aircraft? Seems like kind of a pointless buff though - I mean, you have to hit an aircraft directly anyway, not possible to just catch it in the blast radius like a player on foot (unless the aircraft is on the ground).

 

Or do I have it wrong and it does more damage on aircraft? Didn't really need that anyway. Just needs to have a nice fire rate and actually have an effect on stuff on the ground.

This jet got nerfed? I’ve been using this for Headhunter and have had no problems with the cannon; I actually thought it was more powerful than usual against armoured vehicles.

 

At least it’s still extremely fast above a particular hight. Still not worth the money though - although that can be said about most vehicles.

Ahh my apologies people, the post above has inaccurate data. What I was looking at was the "Vehicle Ammo" section, which is using the Minigun data here so it's essentially irrelevant for the explosion types. Indeed, it is still using the standard "EXP_TAG_ROGUE_CANNON" and I can't see any changes but I'll have to look a bit more closely - been finding other things to mess around with lately so probably get that sorted first.

Nah I did a boo-boo. Sorry.

Well actually this thing isn't "extremely fast" when higher than around 870ft, it only 'transitions' to a speed of around 165-170mph, and indeed this is the weakness players going up against it in a dogfight should exploit.

I use this so, so rarely. The cannon really does just make it un-enjoyable to use for me. Something that's slow and will catch missiles much more than the other jets - really needs to have firepower at least on par with them in my opinion.

 

It's a shame. When it was first seen I had a lot of hype for it.

I use mine for "stunting" because you can get it to fly so slowly. It's fun to "drive" up or down the side of buildings, do touch and gos in the city, etc.

 

But yeah - not an effective dog fighter.

I caved in to the 40% discount and bought one.

 

 

So far, the first impressions weren't great...

 

Guns:

 

I literally can't hit anything at all with the cannon, on ground or air, maybe it could be my approach to how to use it though, I sometimes use it like the canon on my Savage.

 

Homing Missiles are standards, nothing to write home about it - Limited capacity doesn't seems to be an issue for me.

 

The Barrage is fun and deadly as hell, downright deadly for anything on the ground, but it takes fine tuning with your aiming, also in case of moving targets, you gotta fire ahead and predict where they will be, takes some time to get used to.

 

Amuzingly, the bombs on are amazing, I have a much higher success of hitting my targets with them on this airplane than my Rogue.

 

Flying:

 

I love the dynamic armor of it, especially how the engines takes damage, I can flying with a smoking engine for minutes before actually worrying about it, it's just awesome for dogfights. 

 

Handling is...Odd. it feels heavy, like a civilian aircraft at times, but then at other times it feels like it has better turning time than my Pyro, both are using the Race Handling option.

 

The low top speed of it at lower altitudes is a problem, yes, but I understand why it is the way it is: it needs to be slower so my bombs and barrages can be more accurate, and getting it over 1000ft is not a problem at all, the airplane doesn't stall on sharp ascends.

 

All in all, I paid two millions on it and I think it was worth it, better than paying full price anyway. 

 

I definitely wouldn't buy this at full price though.

LOL nope, don't need another Hydra and Lazer in this game with buffed armor. As I said before, the canons on this jet are like the way they are for a reason.

 

Instead, get canons on those jets nerfed, just make them be like the B11's.

 

Far as I looked at it, the canons are meant to be used for dogfights anyway(in this game, ignore how the aircraft is in real life).

Well, only buffing the B-11's cannon while leaving the rest of the plane untouched would make it overpowered, yeah.

 

IMO, the B-11 Strikeforce should be both buffed and nerfed, aka, rebalanced:

 

- Better rate of fire on the cannon

- Homing Missiles limit removed

- Both buffed (so it can survive a single missile to the tail) and nerfed (so it doesn't take 5 Homing Missiles to blow up) armor.

- Nerfed turning radius and flying speed at high altitude.

 

I agree that the B-11 Strikeforce shouldn't be a 1:1 recreation of the real thing, but at least it should play the part. A CAS jet being good at dogfighting and bad at ground attacks makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

For me that's the difficult part. It really is a big part of the plane though. It'd be like a sports car that handled like a bus or something, but had really good armour in return. In a way it would be a balanced vehicle, but it just wouldn't make much sense.

 

The warstock description doesn't help too, they really big it up.

Quote


"In these days of high payload drones and live-combat autopilot, the fine art of low altitude close air support is dying. But for those who still care about the personal touch, the B-11 Strikeforce is here to help you deliver. This masterpiece was built to walk one very fine line: high enough to dodge the rippling inferno of its own explosive cannon fire, but low enough to see the looks on their faces.
Please note: This aircraft is excluded from Pegasus Lifestyle Management and must be stored in a personal hangar."

Lol the fine art of low altitude close air support is dying because CAS aircraft are neutered and anti-CAS vehicles like the Deluxo and Oppressor MKII are perfectly designed to wipe out slow moving, low flying aircraft. 

 

The B-11 isn't even that good at air combat; I've wrecked almost every one of them I've had a dogfight with in my Hunter. So even Rockstars "strength" for it is broken; probably why after the first week most people just went back to Hydras and Lazers.
