Not to be confused with the Volatus, a luxury helicopter in Grand Theft Auto Online.
"A lot of things become clear while you're in the cockpit of a Volatol. As you glide along in the blissful quiet of high-altitude flight, you find yourself at peace, reflective, content. And thousands of feet below, the shadow of your colossal delta wing ripples silently across towns, cities and states, followed by the atomizing roar of heavy ordnance. This is how it was meant to be.

Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The Volatol is a delta-wing strategic bomber featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Doomsday Heist update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Volatol is a V-bomber primarily based on the Avro Vulcan, with the flight deck of a Myasishchev M-4 and engines/intakes similar to the de Haviland Comet. The wings have a smoother/rounded appearance than those of the Vulcan and the rudder is angled down and moved further to the rear.

The Volatol features a large interior seemingly identical to the RM-10 Bombushka, but lacking the posters and the stars on the computers. The middle section between the main seats, where a hallway to a lower level existed in the Bombushka, is now covered with a steel floor.

Its interior follows the same layout and dials as the Bombushka.

The Volatol performs similar, if not identical, to the RM-10 Bombushka, as well as other larger jet-powered planes. Although it has a higher top speed, it is still one of the slowest aircraft in the game, with sluggish handling and low acceleration.


The Volatol is a highly vulnerable vehicle, as the large profile, low maneuverability and lack of armor gives little to no protection against other weaponized aircraft, as well as any weaponized ground vehicle. Countermeasures allows the aircraft to counter homing missiles, but it is still vulnerable to explosive rounds.

  • The Volatol is armed with two remote turrets with twin cannons, which covers the flanks of the plane and offers a wide coverage against targets (one on the nose for frontal, lower attacks and one on the top side for upper attacks). Both are .50 caliber machine guns that behave like other machine gun turrets, as well as the stock guns of the Bombushka.
  • It also features a bomb bay to deploy up to 100 bombs (if added via customization), as opposed to 50 on other custom aircraft.

  • In the Doomsday Heist trailer, the Volatol was shown to have higher speed and faster bomb drop rate, contrary to its actual performance.
  • Despite having increased bombs capacity, the customization options in the Hangar still says it gives 50 bombs.
  • The Volatol has no missile proximity or lock on alarm, which makes evading and using counter measures difficult. It is unknown if this is intentional or not. Given its size this makes the Volatol very vulnerable to all forms of missile attacks.
  • Despite being based on a British bomber, the dials retains the same Russian texts on them, as they were reused from the Bombushka (mostly based on a Russian/Soviet plane).
