"It isn't something you do. It's something you are. Ever since you heard them whisper that your grandpa was a dogfighter in the war, you knew deep in your bones that you too had found your destiny. Sure, you had to kill a lot of pets and strays before you learned what that really meant. But now you're out on parole, and the P-45 Nokota is the only aircraft worthy of your dream. So fire her up, make for the border, and do the old man proud.

The P-45 Nokota is a fighter-bomber aircraft featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Smuggler's Run update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The P-45 Nokota takes the design of a single-seater fighter-bomber aircraft, with styling from the North American P-51 Mustang, seen evident in the body design, wings and cockpit; and the swirling nacile seen on the Messerschmitt Bf-109 and the Focke-Wulfe Fw-190. It takes the nose from a Yakovlev Yak-3, although the actual engine appears to be a Rolls-Royce Merlin from a Supermarine Spitfire. The overall design is reminiscent of many classic WWII-era fighter planes, and can be found with unique liveries, such as that of the Royal Air Force (RAF).

The plane is particularly fast for its design. The single V12 engine proves useful for mobility and speed, while the agility of the plane remains similar to that of other small-sized propellor-powered planes in the game, such as the Mallard. The Nokota features a large array of weaponry, making it a strong competitor in dog fighting.

  • By default, features six built-in machine guns, offering good defensive capabilities against enemy aircraft.
  • Its optional armament are two triple rocket tubes, which can be fired in either homing or non-homing mode. These missiles have no refill time and can be fired continuously, similar to the FH-1 Hunter, V-65 Molotok and Savage.

  • A Nokota is a feral American horse as are Mustangs which is an obvious reference the the aircraft's real life counterpart the North American P-51 Mustang.
  • The P- prefix of the plane is possibly a reference to the the older combat aircraft designation system of the 1924 United States Army Air Service, where P- means "Pursuit", which was eventually replaced by today's F- for "Fighter". Since the Nokota is a WWII-era plane, makes sense that the plane uses the old prefix.

  • Strangely, when steering the plane on the ground, the main gear wheels will turn instead of the tail wheel, as seen in other taildraggers in the game and in real life. The same applies to the Mogul.
