The '''Cuban 800''' is a light twin engine plane in [[Grand Theft Auto V|GTA V]]. Its name is seen in Max Payne 3's files and finally confirmed in [[Grand Theft Auto V/Trailer|second trailer]] as the same name is seen on the back of it.

The Cuban 800 is powered by two 4-cylinder piston engines. These engines are good enough to propel the aeroplane, but nothing further. If one engine fails in flight, the Cuban 800 can be flown on the other for one safely, at the cost of decreased airspeed and maneuverability; if one engine fails on the ground, it is impossible to get the plane in the air. In some cases however, when the entire plane is shot or damaged instead of only the engine, the plane can only be flown on a single engine for a short time before the other one starts smoking and fails. The weight of the plane severely affects performance - the nose, in particular, causes the plane to constantly sink. It is, however, highly reliable and can take quite a few beatings.

The Cuban 800 is suitable for leisurely flight, but where performance and manoeuvrability are essential, it is not the ideal aircraft.

The Western Company Cuban 800 is a light twin-engine plane in Grand Theft Auto V.

Design Edit

It is based on the Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche with features derived from the PA-23 Aztec, Cessna 310, and Beech-56 Baron.

The aeroplane is available in white-and-blue (the most common variant), white-and-red (rare), and black (uncommon).

Performance Edit

The Cuban 800 is powered by two 4-cylinder piston engines. These engines are good enough to propel the aeroplane, but nothing further. If one engine fails in flight, the Cuban 800 can be flown on the other for one safely, at the cost of decreased airspeed and maneuverability; if one engine fails on the ground, it is impossible to get the plane in the air. In some cases however, when the entire plane is shot or damaged instead of only the engine, the plane can only be flown on a single engine for a short time before the other one starts smoking and fails. The weight of the plane severely affects performance - the nose, in particular, causes the plane to constantly sink. It is, however, highly reliable and can take quite a few beatings.

The Cuban 800 is suitable for leisurely flight, but where performance and manoeuvrability are essential, it is not the ideal aircraft.
