Regarding the removed trivia
"It is odd that Nagasaki manufactures the Buzzard, since it is based on the AH-6 which is an American helicopter.".
No, it isn't. Some in-game manufacturers manufacture vehicles that are foreing in real life. E.g. the British Hydra manufactured by the American Mammoth.
"This can be explained, however. In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the Buzzard had no manufacturer because the helicopter was a prototype. Between 2009 and 2013, it is possible that the U.S. government acquired the specifications to manufacture the helicopter and outsourced Buzzard production to Nagasaki."
Speculation without in-game evidence.
"It may also be a reference to real-life Kawasaki under-license production of the OH-6 Cayuse helicopters, so one can also assume that Nagasaki is producing the Buzzard under license."
This is a 50/50 here. On a side, I believe that the Buzzard being manufactured by Nagasaki is a clear reference from R* on that. On the other hand, it assumes that point #2 is factual because real life.
Before anyone posts the "gta iz baz'd on real life" argument. GTA is realistic, not based on real life. There is a lot of things in GTA that are incorrect IRL. Does that make it incorrect? No. GTA has inspiration from our world, but doesn't replicate it. This means that everytime R* parodies something it doesn't mean we have to seek for IRL stuff and assume that it happened in the GTA universe without in-game evidence, like point #2 here. Hind is a Russian helicopter, and the US army doesn't use it, does that mean the in-game US army cannot use a Hind-based heli? No, it doesn't.
Just giving my opinion on that. If anyone believes it should removed, then fine. I won't because I'll be probably reverted in a second and accused of vandalism.23:12, June 14, 2015 (UTC)
- Irrelevant or not, it should be kept, it's an american helicopter, how can it be made by a japanese company? AndreEagle17 23:32, June 14, 2015 (UTC)
