Akula Description:

Once upon a time, a blank radar screen meant you could relax. But times change. With the Akula in town, a blank radar screen probably means you're a few seconds away from being vaporized by a cackling sociopath in an attack helicopter. And there's only one way to make sure you're on the right side of that brave new world...
Please note: This aircraft is excluded from Pegasus Lifestyle Management and must be stored in a personal hangar.
