In GTA Vice City, the Gash Blimp can be seen circling above Downtown Vice City. It is unreachable, because the blimp is located above the player's height limit. If the player finds a way to bypass the height limit and reach the blimp, they will find that it is unsolid, therefore there is no way to destroy the blimp.
The Atomic Blimp can be found in GTA V if the player pre-ordered the game, and it can be entered and controlled if the player calls the Blimp from the player's cellphone or flying a helicopter on top of the Blimp and entering it from there. Some standard editions included a code redeemable in PSN/Xbox Store in the game packaging. However, it is only unlockable if the player has signed up for PlayStation Network/Xbox Live.
- If you destroy the Atomic Blimp with a plane or a helicopter, the player will receive a 3 star wanted level, much like if you do the same thing to the DeadDodo in GTA Vice City.
