The Stria Ghibli 3 is a plane in Just Cause 3.


It's a floatplane version of the Peek Airhawk 225 from Just Cause 2. It's the same model with pontoons instead of wheels which also means that it resembles the real world Extra 300, with some elements from a Zlin 42.

The original pre-release Rebel drop info was: "It's not unusual to see the Stria Ghibli floating prop plane gliding over Medici. Its sea landing capabilities allow access to remote areas of the nation."

The final in-game rebel drop info is: "The Ghibli seaplane from Stria is a common sight over Medici, and it has the advantage to reach the country by landings in water even in remote regions."


Its top speed is 245 km/h and it can land on water. It may look like it can only land on water, but the plane can actually land and take off from dry land as well. It is very slow but also very stable at low speeds. It may be difficult to take off however at low speeds.



  • It's unknown who (or what) this vehicle's name is referencing.
    • It could be a reference to Japanese animation producer Studio Ghibli, known for often featuring classic propeller airplanes (or fantastic variations thereof) in their movies. A notable example, Porco Rosso, was also set in a romanticized version of Italy similar to Medici, in which floatplanes played a prominent role.
    • It could also be a reference to the Italian word "Ghibli", which refers to a hot wind blowing through the Saharan desert.
    • Ghibli is also the name of a car manufactured by Maserati.
  • This is the only plane that must be taken to a a garage to be unlocked. If it weren't a seaplane it would be considerably more difficult to transport there, perhaps even more than the Squalo X7.

  •  Xbox One   When you dive into a body of water cockpit first, the plane will either bounce out of the water at an insane speed, or will become submerged for a few seconds before flying out of the water. In both instances, the plane would have a flaming engine and never stop bouncing in and out of the water until it hit a solid object. This possibly happens with all planes (confirmed with U41 Ptakojester, Urga U17 Akrobat and CS7 Thunderhawk).
  • When this plane is destroyed it will start behaving strangely while in water. It will start moving and sometimes flying in the air almost like it's alive. When nothing happens you can trigger this by tethering it to someting and it will start to move.
