The '''Rustler''' is a [[wp:WWII|WWII]] [[Fixed-Wing Aircraft|fighter plane]] in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], based on the [[wp:North American P-51 Mustang|North American P-51 Mustang]] (wings, canopy, fuselage) with features derived from the [[wp:Curtis P-40 Warhawk|Curtis P-40 Warhawk]] (tail assembly, propeller, nose). It is fast and has very good maneuverability, as expected from a fighter. It has 6 machine guns in the wings but is very delicate, as even gently scraping a wing against an object can cause the plane to explode. Unlike other planes in the game with mounted machine guns, the Rustler's machine guns do not automatically lock onto a target. This makes it more difficult for the Rustler to hit vehicles, even more so when the Rustler is moving quickly and will probably not have enough time to finish off the vehicle. The Rustler has a relatively high top speed. Like the other planes with propeller engines, the plane will stall if the nose is too high. It is designed for low flight, and seats only one.

The Rustler is a WWII fighter plane in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Description

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.

Performance

As expected from a fighter plane, the Rustler has impressive speed in the air and is very manouverable, making it one of the easiest planes (and is usually one of the first) in the game to fly. However the plane is incredibly susceptable to damage, the machine guns are difficult to use because of its speed and the plane's lack of endurance, and 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.
