|Cat and Mouse with the Specter as the "mouse".|
|Appearances||Saints Row: The Third|
The Specter is highly manueverable and can be flown at low altitudes easier than any of the other VTOL vehicles. This allows it to get into tight spaces such as tunnels and underpasses. The Specter can be switched between two modes: hover mode and flight mode, just like the F-69 VTOL and Condor. Like the other VTOL aircraft, the Specter cannot switch to landing mode while in jet mode, and must first be switched to hover mode. If The Protagonist jumps out of the Specter, it will switch to hover mode automatically.
The Specter has a front-mounted repeating laser gun. It has an 'ammo' bar below the aiming reticule in the style of the O-Ring; the weapon has unlimited ammunition but a firing cap that prevents the player from firing the weapon for long periods of time.
In the mission "My Name is Cyrus Temple", while The Protagonist is disguised as Cyrus, the Specter is available in a choice between different prototypes. If The Specter is chosen, it is unlocked in the garage at the conclusion of the mission.
While commonly referred to as "Variants", these are separate vehicles which are based on the Specter, and have same stats and handling.
The Moneyshot Pack contains a vehicle based on the Specter, sporting a black color scheme with Ultor logos. The phone unlock screen for the Ultor Interceptor states that the technology was leased to STAG and that the Interceptor predates the Specter.
The Witches and Wieners Pack contains a vehicle based on the Specter, named Salem. It has the shape of a flying broomstick. It is the only weaponless VTOL.
- The Cheat Code for this vehicle is "givespecter".
- As the Specter is an aircraft, it cannot be retrieved from Rim Jobs or crib car garages.
- When Kia describes the Specter to the boss, the boss (if using Female Voice 2) asks whether it was designed for forest warfare and whether it would explode if it ran into a tree. This is a reference to the movie "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi", where Luke and Leia pursue a group of escaping stormtroopers on hoverbikes, which explode upon impact with trees.
- It bears significant resemblance to the hoverbikes seen in the movie, "The Island".
