Rockstar has updated Grand Theft Auto Online with more new content this week, including a brand new helicopter that will leave people running to their nearest hiding spot, as well as a ton of new discounts and new races.

According to a recent post on the Rockstar blog, the FH-1 Hunter is an attack helicopter that is in “a class of its own.” The helicopter comes equipped with an exclusive rocket barrage that is enough to take down an entire army of foes in one press of a button. It also features a turret that can be operated by another passenger in the vehicle. Players can pick up the FH-1 Hunter today from Warstock Cache and Carry.

Also announced in the blog post was an update to the Transform Races, which will see 16 new races added to the game mode. For those who don’t know, Transform Races are races that see players utilizing various vehicles in one race, so be on your toes when you head out to compete for the double GTA$ and RP that these new races will grant you.

Rockstar has also detailed some of the discounts for this week, knocking 25% off the following items (full list on the Rockstar blog):
