"You want to rain death from the skies just like any other bearded twenty-something, but gun-metal grey and swept back wings are so mainstream. You need something that suggests old world expertise and class - like a manual transmission, or that cut-throat razor you're too frightened to use. Well look no further: with its twin-boom, single-engine vintage styling, the Pyro is the high-fidelity vinyl of air superiority.
Please note: This aircraft is excluded from Pegasus Lifestyle Management and must be stored in a personal hangar.
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Buckingham Pyro is a twin tail fighter aircraft featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Smuggler's Run update, released on October 3rd, 2017, during the Pyro Week event.


Grand Theft Auto Online

"The Buckingham Pyro is available today from Warstock Cache & Carry. The distinct twin-boom body comes packed with a jet engine and dual machine guns. Customize in your Hangar’s Workshop with homing missiles, liveries, armor, engine and handling upgrades, and more."
Rockstar Newswire description.

The Pyro is a twin-boom aircraft primarily based on the De Havilland Vampire, although featuring elements from multiple variants. The wings appears to be similar to that of the F.3 version, while the stabilizer setup are similar to that of the Mk I version. The tandem seat and cockpit appears to be inspired by that of the Mk 11/DH 115 version and BAC Strikemaster, but without side windows behind the main canopy. The protruding tail booms on the wings may have been inspired by the De Havilland Sea Vixen or Venom. The navigation lights on the wing tips are reversed. The port (left) side should be red, while the starboard (right) side should be green.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Pyro appears to perform similarly to most fighter jets featured in the game, but with a slightly decreased speed as a result of its general weight in favour of more stability and more controllable handling. Even if the tails are missing, the Pyro can keep flying for a while until it gets eventually damaged to the point the engine is completely shut down.

  • By default, the Pyro features two machine guns, which behaves like standard machine guns found on several vehicles.
  • By default, lacks missiles, but can be added via customization, adding eight units on either wing (four per wing). These missiles have no refill time and can be fired continuously, similar to the FH-1 HunterV-65 MolotokP-45 Nokota and Savage.
