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.

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

The Cuban 800 is mainly based on the [[wikipedia:Cessna_310|Cessna 310]], having a nearly identical fuselage, landing gear system, engine nacels and wing tanks. However the tail and wings are slightly different. The main wings are more similar to that of the [http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piper_PA-30_Twin_Comanche twin comanche].

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, the Cuban 800 can still take off and fly safely on the other engine, at the cost of decreased airspeed and maneuverability. 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 pitch downwards in flight, and when flown upside down, the plane will lose altitude very quickly, nearly as much as a big plane, such the [[Jet]].

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

Design Edit

The Cuban 800 is mainly based on the Cessna 310, having a nearly identical fuselage, landing gear system, engine nacels and wing tanks. However the tail and wings are slightly different. The main wings are more similar to that of the twin comanche.

The plane 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, the Cuban 800 can still take off and fly safely on the other engine, at the cost of decreased airspeed and maneuverability. 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 pitch downwards in flight, and when flown upside down, the plane will lose altitude very quickly, nearly as much as a big plane, such the Jet. It is, however, highly reliable and can take quite a few beatings.

In other words, the Cuban 800 is suitable for leisurely flight, but where performance and maneuverability are essential, it is not the ideal aircraft.
