The UP Inflatable is a dinghy with a machine gun on the front. It sports the UP emblem and a black paint job. It is not the fastest boat in the game, but it is capable of simple missions on the water. This boat can be found parked by the UP's Outpost nearest to your Home Base. It can only hold two people, the driver and the gunner. This boat can be dangerous to drive due to not only having weak armor but both the gunner and driver are highly vulnerable and can be shot easily. It can be called in with a flare.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Aside from the various civilian boats such as the Trawler and the motorboat, this is one of the most useless boats in the game; the exception is if you need to immediately shoot a lightly armored boat. It is very slow, and leaves the driver open to fire from all sides. The weapon in the front has a very small aiming radius, and the boat itself is hard to turn and has a very large turn radius. You would be much better suited to buy and use the Wave Skimmer, sold by the pirates for the same price, which is much faster, but unarmed.

Real Life[edit | edit source]

The Inflatable is based on the inflatable boats made and popularized by the Zodiac Group.
