Cuban 800 is a light civilian twin-engined cabin propeller aircraft, designed and built by a fictional, in-game American vehicle manufacturer Western Company, specialized mostly in helicopters and planes.
Western Cuban 800 represents a monoplane, which's design was heavily inspired by designs of planes of the beginning of the second half of the past century. Cuban 800 is an exclusive for the fifth part, because it never made it's appearance in any other part of the Grand Theft Auto series. One of the most distinctive features of the plane are external fuel tanks on it's wing, also known as "wet wing". On buying Western Cuban it is usually appears in a full black paint job, however there are different painting variants present in the game, for example a combination blue and white or white and red (which is rare, though).
The plane Western Cuban 800 is equipped with two piston reciprocating engines, which power plane's propellers. They are enough to take off this plane with the weight of 5000 kilograms to the air, but the maximal speed of the aeroplane is just 158 kilometres per hour, it is combined with a very mediocre acceleration won't turn fans of high speeds into raptures over it. Plane's manoeuvrability is also far from perfection as it's nose is rather heavy and makes the plane pitch downwards while in flight. In one of missions Cuban 800 is capable of dropping bombs. You can buy Western Cuban 800 just for $240000 on the in-game website ElitasTravel.com.
The real-life prototypes of Western Cuban 800 in real-world are Cessna 310-B and Piper PA-30 Twin Comanche.
