The Shamal is a multi-role, jet powered business airplane in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV (as a scenery prop) and Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

3D Universe

The first time the player could fly the Shamal was in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The plane, despite its interior size, can only transport the player. The Shamal is a good choice for people who are just learning to fly jets, as its handling is balanced, and is easy to land on runways. The plane draws its influence from the Learjet 60.

The most prominent appearance of the Shamal is during "Freefall", when the plane's interior can be seen. The size of the interior appears larger than usual for an aircraft with a relatively small fuselage, and the interior incongruously features 16 windows (9 on the left and 7 on the right) when the plane features only 8 outside.

In other GTA games, business jets resembling the Shamal first appeared in Grand Theft Auto III and then Grand Theft Auto: Vice City; however, the player could not fly the plane. The plane has also been depicted in take-off and landing in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories; in GTA Liberty City Stories, the player can stand on the plane's wing while it's accelerating to fly away, but will most likely fall after a while, and in GTA Vice City Stories, the plane is seen entering and exiting Escobar International Airport from time to time. A glitch allows the player to enter the plane in GTA Vice City Stories, but it is not controllable. Similarly, a business jet is used as an escape vehicle during a cutscene of Grand Theft Auto Advance's final mission.

The Shamal in GTA IV and GTA V features an updated design, though very close to the GTA San Andreas iteration. In Grand Theft Auto IV, numerous Shamals can be found at the Francis International Airport, though they cannot be used by the player. A Shamal is used by Kenny Petrovic during the Hangman's NOOSE multiplayer mission wherein up to four players must hold back NOOSE units and escort Petrovic from his jet at Francis International Airport to a safepoint. It can be concluded that the jets in question are Shamals, as an identical, controllable model would appear in Grand Theft Auto V.

The Shamal is now a controllable aeroplane in GTA V, available in different liveries. It retains the good handling and performance of its GTA San Andreas rendition, although it has ceded the fastest civilian jet title to the Vestra in the Business Update. Also introduced alongside the Shamal is its private jet cousin, the Luxor.
