== Description ==
The Andromada is a large 4-engine transport airplane based on the [[wp:C-141 Starlifter|Lockheed C-141 Starlifter]]. Its name is a misspelling of "Andromeda", a Greek deity, a galaxy and constellation. If the Andromada is obtained, the player can fly it as if it were a normal plane, with controls and handling similar to the [[AT-400]]. The plane is not fully textured, and as such the cockpit windows are dark. The plane can support a combination of two body colors: One for the fuselage, and the other for the wings, engines, vertical stabilizer and elevators.

The interior of the Andromada is seen in the mission "[[Stowaway]]", however, like the interior of the Shamal in [[Freefall]], this interior is not part of the plane model. It is in the "[[Hidden Interiors Universe|interior universe]]" (where all game interiors in San Andreas are situated), high above the sky, with clouds moving outside to simulate the plane itself moving. Parts of the exterior of the plane are visible when standing at the edge of the ramp. The interior is only enterable via that mission, cheats, or a trainer. Within the interior are two cargo areas walled off by netting, followed by cargo boxes, then shelves stocked with barrels.

Also, a considerably large cargo plane, that appears to be an hybrid between an Antonov An-124 and a B52 Stratofortress, is seen in multiple screenshots for Grand Theft Auto V. In the second trailer a [[Bodhi]] is seen being driven off the ramp of a cargo plane mid-flight, possibly the same one as seen in the screenshots.

The Andromada is a fixed-wing aircraft featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description Edit

The Andromada is a large 4-engine transport aircraft. It's front fuselage and nose is heavily based on the Lockheed C-141 Starlifter, while the engines and rear fuselage is based on the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy. Its name is a misspelling of "Andromeda", a Greek deity, a galaxy and constellation. If the Andromada is obtained, the player can fly it as if it were a normal plane, with controls and handling similar to the AT-400. The plane is not fully textured, and as such the cockpit windows are dark. The plane can support a combination of two body colors: One for the fuselage, and the other for the wings, engines, vertical stabilizer and elevators.

The plane's rear cargo door can be also opened and closed, but nothing can be stored in the plane itself; neither can the player enter the rear is impossible due to an invisible wall. There are, however, mods [1] available to create a fully functional cargo area. When using the CLEO mods for standard vehicle spawners, there is no door you enter to get into the Andromada, only a passage which still shows the exterior of the Andromada.[2]

The interior of the Andromada is seen in the mission "Stowaway", however, like the interior of the Shamal in Freefall, this interior is not part of the plane model. It is in the "interior universe" (where all game interiors in San Andreas are situated), high above the sky, with clouds moving outside to simulate the plane itself moving. Parts of the exterior of the plane are visible when standing at the edge of the ramp. The interior is only enterable via that mission, cheats, or a trainer. Within the interior are two cargo areas walled off by netting, followed by cargo boxes, then shelves stocked with barrels.

GalleryEdit

Appearances Edit

Andromada-GTASA-Overhead

An Andromada seen flying over Ganton, Los Santos.

The plane is featured in the mission "Stowaway", where Carl Johnson drives a PCJ-600 into the back of the plane, blows it up, and then parachutes out. It is also seen briefly in the mission "A Home In The Hills" as CJ is on his way to Madd Dogg's mansion; there is a shot of the Andromada flying over the The Camel's Toe Casino out of Las Venturas, heading south to Los Santos. Like the AT-400, Andromadas are seen flying over cities, however they fly much faster than AT-400s.

The Andromada is not intended to be obtainable by the player, as there is no animation for opening the door of the plane upon entry. However, it can be stolen during "Stowaway" with a trick that involves blowing up the plane and pushing it into the hangar, but it is difficult to exploit as the plane may disappear.[3] Otherwise, the Andromada can also be obtained by way of a third-party trainer program.

PerformanceEdit

The Andromada is slower and heavier than AT-400, but it can reach higher than AT-400. It has soft handling and is soft when landing.

GlitchEdit

There is a way to enter the Andromada cockpit during the mission Stowaway. It involves using the "blow up all cars" cheat before CJ hops on the motorcycle. The plane will not blow up, and will be frozen in place, however the mission cannot progress. The plane is then enterable, but it cannot be controlled or even exited. Another way is that when your bike blows up, kill all of the enemies, and blow up the Andromada. Then, use the "Spawn a Rhino" cheat (see Cheats in GTA San Andreas), and use the Rhino to push the destroyed Andromada into your hangar, then kill yourself. Go back to your hangar, and you'll see that it is flyable.

TriviaEdit

  • A handling line for the Andromada can be found in Grand Theft Auto IV's game files, suggesting that it (or a plane of the same name) was at some point going to feature in GTA IV.[4]
  • The Andromada is strange in that walking across its wings sounds the same as walking on grass and also that the plane has no shadow. In the PS2 version, it has a shadow. 
  • It is possible (though rare) for the Andromada to appear in the impound lot, though it is more than likely to explode when approached, this is even possible on console versions of the game.
  • The Andromada can be spawned with 3rd party trainers, with a fully functional cargo door.
  • The Andromada strangely only has 2 colors in 1 combination, silver and a black dot on the nose, and the color of the Andromada can be changed with 3rd party trainers like orange, red, and many other colors.
  • The Andromada can be spawned and obtained with a Gameshark, Action Replay MAX PS2, Code Breaker, and CLEO mods.
  • The Andromada plays Radio-X by default when entered.
  • Strangely, the Andromada has a very small landing gear assembly. The airplane features one four-wheel bogie assembly at the nose, but it only features two wheel assemblies at the rear (each one placed on both sides of the aircraft, underneath the wings). Although seemingly plausible, this arrangement would not be able to carry the weight of the Andromada, and would most likely break in real life.
  • The Andromada, misspelt "Andromeda," is a Greek Galaxy, and the plane the Andromada is based off the C-141 Starlifter, "Starlifter," being something else to do with space.
  • Sometimes, the Andromada is seen flying very high in the sky, though rarely.

  • The Verdant Meadows airstrip is littered with many airplane ruins. Some of these plane parts seem to very closely resemble the look of the Andromada but without the recognizable black spot on the nose and having a different horizontal stabilizer design at the rear of the fuselage.
