As the pilot of a Western Seabreeze, you'll have to get used to a lot of attention. Onlookers will marvel that an amphibious aircraft can look so sleek and businesslike. They will gaze in longing at the chic, contemporary interior. They will gasp and cheer as you try to bail out and that unique tail-mounted propeller turns you into soup. Welcome to your fifteen minutes of fame.
Please note: This aircraft is excluded from Pegasus Lifestyle Management and must be stored in a personal hangar.
Elitás Travel description.

The Western Seabreeze is a seaplane categorized as a flying boat, featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the GTA Online: Smuggler's Run update, released on October 28th, 2017, during the Halloween Bonuses 2017 event.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

Escape the ghouls and costumed crazies in style; whether you're landing on a desert runway or splashing down right next to your private yacht, the Western Seabreeze is a business class option for every occasion and locale. And if you’re the kind of high-earner who might have need of a machine gun and bomb bay, don’t worry, there’s plenty of room.
Rockstar Newswire description.

The Seabreeze is evidently based on the Seawind 300c, having the distinctive wing tips, cabin canopy and undercarriage arrangement. Its name is also a play on "Seawind", the manufacturer of its real-life iteration.

The Seabreeze is distinguished by its small fuselage with a boat-shaped hull, featuring a long nose with the correponding hatches for the nose landing gear and a large cabin canopy that swings backwards, having two handles on either side. Around the main section, the plane features square-shaped wings with curved tips, ailerons and airbrake flaps, along with L-shaped main landing undercarriage that pivot from the main fuselage. The empennage/tail assembly is seemingly larger than most conventional planes, housing the single engine and dual exhausts on top of the vertical stabilizer and a wide horizontal stabilizer on the rearmost end of the vertical stabilizer.

The interior of the aircraft features a wide instrument panel with the "Flyer" dial set also used on most conventional aircraft, sharing the same arrangement with the Cuban 800. It has room for two occupants.

The plane is prominently painted in a primary color around the main fuselage, while the underside/hull, the upper section of the tail, and engine compartment are painted in a secondary color. It shares the same wheel design with most industrial trucks such as the Mule, the Benson and the Phantom, also present on most aircraft.

While unarmed by default, the player can equip it with built-in machine-guns on its wings, as well as bombs.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Vehicle

Despite the rather cumbersome design and the simplistic powerplant, the Seabreeze has great speed and good handling, even able to match other fast propeller aircraft like the Mallard or the Howard NX-25. However, players should be constantly correcting their pitch angle, as it often pitches down at cruise speeds, especially while suffering turbulences.

The location of its propeller means there is no risk of scratching it with an obstacle or accidentally killing other players/NPCs in crowded areas when the plane is on land, only requiring to avoid any kind of structure that may damage the same (i.e. the top of a tunnel or a bridge when flying below it). Its amphibious capabilities and the tricycle landing undercarriage offers high versatility when the player wants to bring the plane from sea to land.

Unlike the Dodo, the Seabreeze can be fully submerged and has very high resistance against water damage. If, however, the Seabreeze should be damaged, its propeller will fail and start to nosedive towards its doom with no way to keep the plane straight unless if it lands on the water. In addition, its ailerons/flaps do not seem to break in any way when making contact with water, able to withstand stormy waves and rough water landings. Only landing upside down will effectively render the plane unusable, as the engine will not provide enough power to lift off the plane and end up stuck, as expected from a flipped boat.

Based on the shape and the protruding exhausts, the Seabreeze may be powered by a horizontally-opposed (flat) piston engine, with a distinctive sound similar to that of the Rogue, albeit with a higher pitch.

Defense

The Seabreeze is generally good at evading homing missiles thanks to the countermeasures and its maneuverability, although the lack of armor and heavy weaponry makes it rather ineffective on offensive purposes.

Countermeasures

The vehicle can be fitted with countermeasures to improve its defensive capabilities against homing missiles, each one with their own attributes:

  • The Chaff countermeasure disrupts the targeting system from missile launchers, rendering them unable to lock on the aircraft for five seconds. They have a delay of five seconds before being used again and only have 10 uses.
  • The Flare countermeasure drops various flares from around the rear of the aircraft, which can "disorient" the homing missile in order to avoid chasing the aircraft. They have a delay of three seconds before being used again and only have 20 uses.
  • The Smoke countermeasure creates a trail of smoke that can disorient the enemy pilot, but its effectiveness is very limited, as the trail is large enough for a standard cockpit and the enemy pilot would just need to move away and follow the smoke trail. It has no delay between uses and can be used indefinitely.
Weaponry
  • Machine Guns: The Seabreeze can be equipped with two front-mounted machine guns, which behave similarly to most machine guns found on most weaponized aircraft and land vehicles. These machine guns are ideal for air-to-air engagements, as they can cause severe damage to unarmored aircraft, provided the pilot manages to stay behind it, but lacks damage to sort out armored vehicles and ground targets. Because of the gun placement, the machine guns seem to struggle at hitting targets while flying too close.
  • The vehicle has the option for installing bombs, providing heavy firepower against ground targets. There are four different Bomb choices: Explosive, Incendiary, Gas and Cluster;
    • The Explosive option has high damage over targets from all ranges, meaning any target caught in the "edges" of the blast radius receive the same damage as in the "center".
    • The Incendiary option creates a trail of fire similar to the Molotov Cocktail, burning the targets for a constant damage. Although the bombs are powerful at the center, it causes less damage on the "edges".
    • The Gas option causes a noxious effect on players and NPCs on impact, similar to the Tear Gas. It has a slightly larger blast radius than the standard bomb, but is unable to damage vehicles. The gas lasts for around 25 seconds.
    • The Cluster option creates a smaller explosion than the standard one on impact, but small clusters spread within its radius, allowing for greater damage over a single armored target.
