I have read some incredible tips, but I can't even fly the rc plane. I need lots of help with the controls, I'm easily getting stuck on a particular place, not able to take off again. Thanks in advance.

I thought the R.C. plane would have the same controls as on vice city.

this is not a spoiler whistling.gif

I find Supply Line one of the hardest missions. You just have to be very and i say VERY yentle with the stick. Plan your rout ahead. And dont hold X button in all the time. There is not much fuel so you have no time for errors crazy.gif

yeh, I did it too. The RC handles differently than the regular planes, a lot more sensitive. don't use the stick to turn, keep to using L2 and R2

Alright I've done this dang thing at least 75 times and still cannot pass it. Is there any specific routes anyone can recommend for me to take? I just can't seem to figure it out. Thanks

Actually if you check the gta community, you will find out that this mission is the hardest in the game. It seems to be down to luck more than anything.

The spawn points of the targets are random and most of the time they spawn too far apart. The only advise i can give you is to take your targets out quickly and use those guns as far away as you can. They autoaim so dont worry too much about lining up perfectly.

if you take more than one flyby to take out a target, then you'll pretty much fail, so make sure you get it right.

Keep at it, you'll catch a break sooner or later.

Yeah around 75 times and it's so damn time consuming I just don't want to do it anymore. lol I've come sooo close so many times last night I gave up after the little dang plane died half a block away from the end. Dang piece of monkey crap.

Meldince, the fuel gauge isn't a timer, it actually depends on fuel consumption, because if you land then it stops consuming.

I beat it easily... what i did was just take out the tanks first, then put the bridges, then take the barrels... if that helps any...

Might as well jump in this thread too. Dive at the vans or bikes, ladning then taking off, IMO takes too much time. When travelling between targets, get some altitude so you can clear the buildings and get there in a straight line, as fast as possible. It does autoaim, but you still have to aim the plane at the target, since it only aims within a few degress of the target. The plane is agile, so feel free to toss it around to make tight turns, or to keep in line with a target. It's hard, but if you move fast, remember to pause after every single kill and look at the map to form a plan for the next one, and can kill each target with one pass (keep yourself lined up and shooting no matter what, every shot counts), you should be ok. Surprisingly, after failing it (barely) the first time, I finished it the second time with 10% of my fuel left, mostly due to the more careful planning and getting every guy in one swift pass. Good luck with it. smile.gif

ok, awesome so far. Now, first of all, I DID read the tips on this wonderful site before starting this topic (just look at my first post), unfortunately, they weren't enough. So I think I got it figured out, I just have a couple of questions: 1. How does the fuel work: as a timer or actual fuel? I'm getting confused, yet I guess I can figure this out myself next time I play. 2. Now, I need a good response to this one, please. The plane seems to go very slow, so what's the best way to get to the last 2 targets quickly? Does it make a difference if I'm constantly diving and regaining altitude (you know, moving L3 down then up...) or will it go faster on a straight line???

I finally got it. The Fuel gauge works as a real fuel gauge, if you don't believe me land the plane in the middle of the mission and just stay still, the gauge doesn't move at all. For the rest of it I don't know I finally just got lucky lol........... LAREX wrong mission man you're talking about New Model Army and we're talking about Supply Lines the one before that.

yes, I did that, stopped in the middle of the road for a whole minute and it doesn't move.
Now, let me just say... I did it!! I finally beat Supply lines... and it only took me about 40 attempts!! Pretty amazing, I was screaming like a little girl. So, I'll explain briefly how I did on my final attempt: first, I turned left and went straight towards the bicycle, lined up right behind it and after killing the guy, turned right and went after the van right around the corner, then on to the 3rd target, just got right behind it and shoot it til it caught fire and immediately went North for the bike. Now let me say, if you can get these first 3 and start heading North in about a minute and a half, you should be ok. The key is doing at least 3, may be 4, of the 5 without landing at all. It's ok to have half tank left at some point during the 4th target. For the bike, the best is to get RIGHT behind it but you have to be VERY well positioned and shoot it til it catches fire. I know, it sounded difficult when I heard it too but it can be done.Then on to the 5th, the easiest one, as long as you get the "Hurry up! running out of fuel!" crap AFTER this one, you should be ok, though I may say I was fairly close to the shop. Don't even bother on the attempts that the last van goes all the way up North (I saw it happened a couple of times) you just won't have enough time. The best is when it goes south smile.gif obviously, you end up real close to the shop. If still having trouble, try saving after several attempts instead of reloading the file over and over, it may be just me, but I think if you save several attempts (10 or more) at one mission, it eventually becomes easier. It may sound crazy, but like I said, if all fails, might as well try that. Best of luck to all! Don't give up!!

I found it better to do straight line. Killed the 2 closest van first. Then the bike. Always saves the Sanches to the end biggrin.gif

Works for me biggrin.gif

no, sorry the fuel is timed. If you land and wait, it still gets consumed.
I think the "fuel" is more of a battery. And it's not a strong battery.

alright, well, must have been a bug. I've done something similar came back with a failed mission attempt added to my stats.

at any rate, if you move at all, fast or slow, doesn't matter, it wears the fuel consumption down. Tapping the button doesn't help at all. sitting on the ground doesn't do anything either.
