Use a Volatol jet to destroy multiple SAM turrets around Mount Chiliad.
— Brief.

Setup: Air Defenses is a heist setup featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Doomsday Heist update. It is part of the Act 3 of The Doomsday Heist.


The crew is instructed to go to Sandy Shores Airfield. During the trip, Phoenicia Rackman informs of the situation about Avon Hertz preparing for war and that the government wants to stop it before it get too heavy. Bogdan then briefs to the crew that the Russian Intelligence are aware of SAM sites around Mount Chiliad. Rackman also informs that they secured a Volatol bomber plane to destroy these emplacements.

Once the crew arrives at the airfield and gets in the plane, Lester informs that the plane has full payload capacity with carpet bombs, two remote turrets, stealth tech and ghost frequency, so they won't have to worry about the SAM sites directly targeting the plane, but may have to lookout for anything airborne.

The crew then heads to Mount Chiliad to destroy the 12 turrets located around the site. They have to be careful of oncoming Buzzard Attack Choppers and, after destroying half of the sites, two V-65 Molotoks. Once all turrets are destroyed, the crew is instructed to bring the plane back to the airfield, thus completing the setup.
