GTA V Meets Top Gun or H.A.W.X…. Kind Of

If modders have their way, you’ll soon be able to play every game within GTA V. Mark our words, a year from today, GTA V on PC will be the only game anyone will ever need. Mods have made it possible to play a modern military shooter, a post-apocalyptic survival game, an RPG, and even< a href=””>Fallout, all within GTA V.

But Wait.

There’s more!


Now, you can also play Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. in GTA V, or at least, a very distant cousin of it. The mod titled Air Superiority adds a new mini game to GTA V, which, when triggered, places the player in the cockpit of a P-996 Lazer fighter jet. Four squads of 5 jets each face off in the skies above Los Santos. The four team are all color coded, but they also have an associated nation (not that it makes any difference at present), with the Chinese being green, the Russians red (obviously), the USA blue and the UK yellow.


In its current version, Air Superiority is a tad simple. Shoot down the enemy planes, don’t get shot down yourself, cover your squad, and rack up kills. The first team to reach 1200 points is victorious. The author has expressed a desire to update the mod with further features, such as a way of repairing damage to your plane on the fly (no pun intended) and missile countermeasures such as flairs and chaff.


The mod could also use some additional game modes (Defend the Blimp? Hunt the Chopper? CTF? FFA?), as the current team deathmatch setup is rather straight forward. However, there is a whole lot of new potential locked in this mod, and with the recent surge in the popularity of flight simulators (well, space sims, but the basis of gameplay is the same) in the face of Star Citizen and Elite: Dangerous means that this could grow to be a very popular mod.

Are you keen on taking to the skies of GTA V with this mod?
