"So you’re an aspiring criminal and you and your crew have been tasked with staving off an existential threat, but you need just the right vehicle. How about a vertical take-off, turreted, flying fortress/experimental weapons lab in the sky/death-spitting collateral damage producer that practically flies itself? The Avenger is all these things and more. Store it in your Facility, get it fitted out with a Vehicle Mod Shop, a Weapon Workshop, and a suite of ferocious weapon upgrades, and you’ll soon be wreaking a whole new level of havoc without ever having to land."

The Mammoth Avenger is a plane featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Doomsday Heist update. 

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

"Death from above."
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Avenger is a tiltrotor aircraft based on the V-22 Osprey, but replacing the side doors with access ladders.

Like the Mobile Operations Center, the Avenger's hold features separated bays that the player can modify into specialized workshops. Each bay offers ample room for the crew. If the Avenger is stationary on the ground, players can enter the hold via a corona located behind it (or via the ramp if they are using an allowable vehicle). Although the Avenger has a seating capacity for the pilot and four passengers, the entire lobby (depending on the owner's accessibility permissions) are able to stand in the hold.

The layout of the vehicle interior is composed of the large main cockpit with access doors on both sides and a CCTV camera pointed over the pilot's right shoulder and the cargo hold where players can interact with the Avenger's various features. The wardrobe and armory are found immediately behind the cockpit area, next to the secure door that connects both sections. The CCTV monitor is in the middle section along with side-mounted inward-facing seats for the passengers and the rear of the hold is a vehicle storage bay by default.

If the player has purchased the appropriate upgrades and modifications, there will be up to three turret control terminals where the front one is for the top turret, the left one for the front turret and the rear one for the rear turret. The storage bay will be divided into corresponding workshops, with the Weapon Workshop next to the computer area and the Weaponized Vehicle Workshop at the very rear of the aircraft next to the rear ramp.

The proprotor blades feature luminous tips on both surfaces, so when flown at night they draw clearly visible circles of green light.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Flight

The Avenger performs almost identically to most medium-sized planes or helicopters, able to reach a decent speed, but has a rather sluggish handling and climb rate, though it is not much of an issue when comes to travelling around. The large proprotors can make it difficult to land on narrow areas, as well as on uneven terrain, as it will easily lose control if one of the props touches an obstacle.

It is not possible to land in "normal" mode, only VTOL. Attempting to land while the proprotors are forward-facing will trigger an automatic transition to VTOL just as the wheels are about to touch down and the aircraft will generate lift. Transitioning between forward thrust and VTOL modes can cause altitude fluctuations and abrupt attitude changes with the nose pitching up or down, so it’s best conducted only after the aircraft has gained a few hundred feet altitude.

The Avenger is powered by two turboshaft engines, which produce a sound similar to the Cargobob when idle. If the aircraft tilts forward or changes into forward thrusting, its pitch will change, sounding similarly to medium-sized, turboprop aircraft such as the Tula.

Defense

Like the MOC, the Avenger has immensely durable armor and can withstand incredible damage. Terrain and inanimate object impacts are virtually ignored. However, the Avenger is not as resilient as the MOC, while it can take an immense amount of punishment before being destroyed, the fact of it being a plane reduces its effective durability. As with other planes, explosions can sometimes break off ailerons, which can result in the plane becoming virtually impossible to control, often leading to a crash. While the vehicle takes plenty of homing missiles to destroy the plane, it is very difficult to dodge without countermeasures, and getting hit in the wrong spot can permanently cripple the aircraft. Enough damage can also disable an engine, making the plane almost impossible to keep in the air. Crashing the plane after losing control usually will not destroy it, due to the durability of the hull, allowing the occupants to escape. The Chernobog is a major threat to the Avenger, due to its incredible range with its homing missiles, the speed at which they are fired, and their incredible accuracy. These missile trucks are best avoided, if one would wish to not have their Avenger shot down.

Offense

If the cannon option was purchased, the Avenger will have a single cannon mounted under the nose. This cannon has a wide range of motion and can cover a half-sphere under the plane with visibility front and rear. This leaves it vulnerable to aircraft attacks from above. It can be modified in the Facility workshop to add two additional remote turrets with explosive cannons, which cover the remaining blind spots and offers 360° coverage against targets. The cannons behave similarly to those of the MOC, albeit with a slightly higher fire rate and seemingly infinite range. A single occupant can engage Autopilot hover mode and enter the hold and control a single turret at a time, however switching between turret stations is done quickly with a single button press, enabling a single player very strong offensive/defensive capabilities in the aircraft. The Avenger's weaponry are able to shoot down attacking planes before they can cause too much damage. It can also be upgraded to feature a bomb bay to deploy up to 50 bombs of various style.

Functionality

The Avenger is stored in players' Facilities and performs the same functions as a Mobile Operations Center, including the ability to install a Vehicle Workshop and a Weapon Workshop. Avenger Services are added to the player's Interaction Menu to request and return the vehicle to and from Facility storage, as well as setting accessibility options, emptying other players from the cockpit or hold and engaging Autopilot.

A selection of weaponized and armored vehicles can be stored in the hold (whether the Vehicle workshop is installed or not).

Players can not have both a Mobile Operations Center and an Avenger active in the same session.

Autopilot

The Autopilot feature allows the player to leave the helicopter cockpit while it is in the air and access the hold and even leave the aircraft. Players can man one of the cannons while the aircraft is in autopilot mode. Leaving the aircraft in mid-air can be done on foot to parachute or in a vehicle stored in the hold. Special vehicles that can fly are able to transition into flight mode after exiting the hold and the Stromberg can transform into submarine mode and safely land in any body of water the Avenger is hovering over. The Avenger cannot easily be re-entered if left unmanned in autopilot, and must be returned to the facility to be used again.

Customizations

Grand Theft Auto Online

The base cost is $3,450,000 and for every non-default aspect selected, the price will be increased up to a maximum of $4,787,500. The player can modify the vehicle options at any time by re-visiting Warstock Cache & Carry and re-specifying the customization options, but will not receive any credit for previously purchased options.

Variants

A static model variant exists that is only shown as the Avenger enters a facility. This model compacts the wingspan and folds the proprotor blades inwards to allow the aircraft to fit down the lift shaft. As this variant still uses the original Avenger data to allow it to represent the player's personal Avenger, it is still flyable with the use of modifications.

Trivia

General

  • While the avenger2 follows the same folded-rotor blade storage configuration as the V-22 Osprey, the wingspan is only shortened and the engines remain in the vertical position. The real-life V-22 Osprey needs to fold its rotor blades, rotate the entire wingspan to its right and rotate the engines to their forward flight position when it is sent to storage.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Although the Avenger is manufactured by Mammoth, it is listed in Warstock Cache & Carry as an HVY vehicle.
  • The Avenger is listed as a Helicopter in the Creator—This makes sense because the vehicle cannot land in flight mode due to the size of the rotors, despite being classed as a plane.

Bugs/Glitches

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • By having Flares installed as countermeasures, if the player leaves the session and start another, the Avenger will change the countermeasure with white smoke. This may affect the player's money, as they must purchase the flares again.
    • This glitch has since been fixed.
  • When deploying and retracting the landing gear, the animation on the wheels will freeze for a brief moment.
