The Rustler is a World War II fighter plane in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

DesignEdit

The Rustler draws inspiration from various real-life WWII warplanes, including the North American P-51 Mustang, the Curtis P-40 Warhawk, the Hawker Typhoon and the Supermarine Spitfire. The Rustler is a decent-sized single-seater airplane with a single propeller at the front. The cockpit is located in the middle of the plane and CJ stands on top of the plane's left wing to open the hatch to reach the cockpit. When parked on the ground, the plane always leans tilted upwards, with rear steering while on the ground.

It has 6 machine guns fixed into the wings which deals a moderate amount of damage. The machine guns do not lock onto a target, and when coupled with the plane's impressive speed while in the air, this makes them difficult to use effectively, however, the Rustler can take down a Hydra with no problems, due to its maneuverability, speed and the machine guns.

PerformanceEdit

As expected from a fighter plane, the Rustler has impressive speed in the air and is very maneuverable, making it one of the easiest planes (and is usually one of the first) in the game to fly. The plane is incredibly susceptible to damage; the machine guns are difficult to use because of its speed and the plane's lack of endurance. It also has a relatively long take-off time compared to other propeller-planes of its size.

Like other propeller planes, it will stall when the player attempts to fly it vertically.

AppearancesEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Like other planes that tilt upwards when parked (such as the Stuntplane, Nevada and Cropduster) the plane will move backwards when the Cars drive on water cheat is enabled.
  • The Beta version of the Rustler had a different nose which makes the plane looks more like a P-51 Mustang and less like a Curtis P-40 Warhawk.

LocationsEdit

  • In the bottom floor of the police impound lot in Roca Escalante (alongside a Leviathan and a Hydra). As the plane intersects the ground, it is impossible to even enter the plane.
  • In a hangar in the southern part of Easter Bay International Airport. The hatch is locked until the player completes the mission "Mike Toreno".
  • Spawns at Verdant Meadows after completing mission "Learning to Fly", in a small hangar east to the AC tower.
  • Occasionally seen being flown in the sky by invisible NPCs. They will not return fire if attacked with aircraft-mounted weapons or jetpack-pistol.
