Nevertheless, the plane can in fact be used to execute stunts, including barrel rolls and loop-the-loops. A primary disadvantage to this plane is once you land and get out you can't get back in because the door is very high from the ground. The only way you can get back in it to find a [[Baggage]] with [[Towing#GTA San Andreas 2|a ladder]] attached to the back, land the plane at Las Venturas Airport and go to the hangar again, or find a [[Yankee]] and jump over it, using its back side as a platform. Unlike most other planes, this plane is also the only one that can be flown over [[Area 69]] with less chance of being shot down by homing missiles, providing you don't hang around. The AT-400 is also only one of two aircraft that can fly to the maximum height in the game, the other being the [[Hydra]]. Like the other planes, it can also be seen flying in the distance, but it is hard to take down the flying AT-400, even with homing rockets or kamikaze style attack. The plane is also used for [[Airports#Commercial flights|paid commercial flights]] between cities in [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]]. ==Location== As a controllable vehicle, the plane is considerably rare, appearing in only one location, inside the large airport hangar in [[Las Venturas Airport]] in [[Las Venturas]], when the player approaches from the south. Regardless, the plane does not always spawn in the hangar. == Trivia == [[Image:AT400-GTASA-parked.jpg|275px|thumb|right|A parked AT-400 at the [[Easter Bay Airport]], with a [[Utility Van]] parked nearby for comparison in size.]] * The AT-400 is the largest controllable vehicle in the game (the second is [[Tug Boat|Tug]], a boat from GTA IV), the [[Andromada]] being the third largest. Interestingly enough, when comparing their real life counterparts the cargo plane (Andromada) is actually bigger than the passenger jet (AT-400). * The AT-400's initial is similar to that of the [[Airtrain|Air Train]], a similarly sized airliner that repeatedly appears as a static prop earlier in GTA III and GTA Vice City. * Certain [[modifications]], like the "Fly Mod" and the "Anti-Material Rifle", can knock an AT-400 out of the sky but it still takes a lot of practice to bring one down even with modifications. * There is no way the AT-400 can be saved at a [[garage]], since the entrance at the aircraft hangar at [[Verdant Meadows]] is too small for the plane to fit; obviously, normal garages at [[Save Points in GTA San Andreas|safehouses]] are way too small. * Of all aircraft in GTA San Andreas, the AT-400 is the most durable of all. Even when shot from SAM sites it can withstand between 8 to 11 hits before blowing up and falling from the sky. {{Navboxes |title= Navigation |list1= {{vehicles|state=collapsed}} {{gtasa vehicles|state=collapsed}} }} [[Category:Vehicles]] [[Category:Vehicles in GTA San Andreas]] [[Category:Aircraft]] [[Category:Fixed-Wing Aircraft]] [[de:AT-400 (SA)]] [[es:AT-400]] [[fi:AT-400]] [[fr:AT-400]] [[pl:AT-400]]

The NOOSE Cruiser is the NOOSE variant of the Police Cruiser, appearing in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

Design

The NOOSE Cruiser shares the chassis of the Police Cruiser (based on a combination of Ford Crown Victorias), albeit with an LED strobe light bar in place of the Police Cruiser's spinning V-bar, and a NOOSE livery (loosely based on the livery of Homeland Security vehicles) rather than that of the LCPD; however, the car is similarly equipped with a police computer that allows the player to engage in Vigilante-like side missions. The NOOSE Cruiser may be called out when a 3-star wanted level is attained, and is used to create roadblocks. The car serves roughly the same purpose as the NOOSE Patriot.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the NOOSE Cruiser appears to spawn more often than in GTA IV when the player is being chased by the police. It even goes as far as to replace Police Cruisers, which are usually the designated pursuit vehicles when wanted by the police.

Performance

When compared to the Police Cruiser, the NOOSE Cruiser appears to have undergone a pleasant array of upgrades. The engine feels as if it's breathing better, and its powerband is improved dramatically. The suspension is firmer, the body roll is not as severe. Handling-wise, this huge car can match more performance-oriented cars, and stability at its top speed is vastly different from the Police Cruiser.

Trivia

  • The NOOSE Cruiser's LED light bar does not make a distorted sound after being crushed or shot at with a weapon like the Police Cruiser's/Patrol's V-bar.
