UrBaconMeCrazy’s vintage-style snap sees a P-45 Nokota nimbly cutting through the dark skies above Los Santos, tearing away from an explosive battle during a Smuggler’s Run Source Mission. The Nokota will be available to acquire and customize in your Hangars in the weeks ahead — stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for upcoming details.
The Vapid Retinue pauses in a moment of calm as the looming shadow of the Mammoth Tula casts a spectral presence in laurent.do’s sharp and neatly framed snap.
With not one but two bogeys on his six, Pvt.McKain’s Molotok looks to evade enemy fire and an explosive backlash in the heat of a blazing battle.
With the usual flawless composition and framing that we’ve come to expect from the talented Basimatic, this winning shot takes warfare out of the skies and into the wild. Blending in to their background with camo gear and sporting thermal Quad Lens Combat Helmets, two smugglers fight for survival in the Paleto Forest.
The prolific and creative FallenDutch is well known for an ability to challenge the form with innovative Snaps. Taking the scenic route during a Source Mission, FallenDutch cleverly inverts perspective at the helm of a Howard NX-25 at Del Perro Pier. Look forward to adding the Howard to your personal aerial armada in the coming weeks.
