The HP Series is a type of floatplane (sometimes known as a hydroplane) produced by Kimberlite, and can be found in many places throughout Hope County.

Unlike the land-based AdjudiCor FBW, the HP can land on water as well as on terrestrial runways, due to its pontoons. Because of this, it can also be spawned (and purchased) at any boat dock in the game.

Nick Rye owns a variant known as Carmina, which was purchased by his grandfather George Rye after he returned from World War II.

Base Model

“Can't decide between a plane and a boat? You don't have to!”
Item Description


The base model, the HP-18-160 is available for purchase as soon as the player reaches an airfield or dock.

It can be purchased for $2,500, and can be customized in several paint schemes.

Carmina

“This KIMBERLITE HP-18-160 has been in the Rye family for generations, and was Nick's first love.”
Item Description


An aircraft handed-down through three generations until finding its way to Nick Rye, Carmina was purchased by his grandfather, George Rye after he returned from World War II.

Between the initial purchase and the events of Far Cry 5, Carmina was upgraded with a belly-mounted gatling gun, and bomb racks - both of which are used by Nick Rye to great effect. In the trend of many other aircraft from the war, it is painted with a shark mouth livery on the nose behind the prop.

Carmina is used by Nick Rye when he is called as a Gun for Hire, and can be obtained by the deputy after liberating it from the Peggies and completing Air Raid for Kim Rye.

After the nuclear holocaust, the Carmina became wingless and fell to disrepair. Nick Rye planned to fix her up and gift her to his daughter Carmina Rye for her birthday. In Far Cry New Dawn, Nick Rye is captured by the Highwaymen. He stashed away the Carmina as his getaway vehicle and The Security Captain must drive her during Nick Rye's rescue mission.

Stars and Stripes

“Don't let it touch the ground. Fly it in the air, loud and proud.”
Item Description


As with his other vehicles, Clutch Nixon painted this plane in an unapologetically patriotic Stars & Stripes livery.

Unlike Carmina, Stars & Stripes is armed only with wing-mounted machine guns.

It can be obtained by completing the Spray and Pray stunt.

“This Kimberlite LMHP-180 has cluster bombs, cluster rockets, all you need to start a real cluster...”
Item Description

It can be purchased for $7,200 or Fc5 icon silverbars 400 Silver Bars


The Wild Goose

“This Kimberlite LMHP-180 has machine guns, bombs, and rockets. Use it to cook someone's goose.”
Item Description


The Wild Goose is similar to the Clusterduck variant, but painted in a chocolate and grey camouflage scheme.

It can be purchased for $7,200 or Fc5 icon silverbars 400 Silver Bars

Trivia

  • Throughout Hope County, passive spawning NPCs in HP series planes will appear, often lending a hand by performing gun runs on cultists at outposts or roadblocks.
    • A frequent occurrence is when traveling through hilly terrain, the NPC will spawn much too low to the ground, and will almost immediately crash and explode through impact with debris such as trees or hills.
  • The text of the Stars & Stripes is a reference to the United States flag code; in layman's terms the specific code entry is interpreted that the flag is not to touch the ground, as it is a sign of disrespect.[1]
  • The HP series is based on the American Champion Scout series of floatplane.[2]
