hey,

One of the things I am most looking forward to in GTA IV is the helicopters, especially in multiplayer.

I am trying to figure out what types there will be.

Here is my guess:


Super-Military Heli:
AH-64D Apache Longbow (aka Hunter)

The AH-64D is pretty much the ultimate military helicopter. It seats 2 aircrew, a pilot and 1 heavy machine gunner/missile dude. The US army has 700+ currently in service. Was in San Andreas under the name "Hunter"

Transportation/Military Heli:
UH-60 Black Hawk (aka Raindancer)

The UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter is a military powerhouse that can also carry 11 troops! It includes two 7.62mm M240G machineguns. Was featured in San Andreas, but in civilian configiration under the name of "Raindancer" Doesn't have a huge armament because it is primarily a transport helicopter.

Transport Heli:
Mi-8 HIP(Cargobob in San Andreas)

The Cargobob was the hardest helicopter to obtain in San Andreas (found in Area 52) and with good reason! This is a beast of a chopper and can carry around all of your gang in SA. It has no defences, however. Not well suited for multiplayer since there is only 8 people per team and the UH-60 Black Hawk (pictured above) can hold 11.

Civilian Heli:
Bell 407 (aka Maverick)

Feautured in all the GTA's since GTAIII, this is the standard helicopter for the series. The only chopper that has ever come in multiple colours. Seats 4 people including the pilot.

Sea Chopper:
H-13 Sioux (aka Sea Sparrow)

Included in GTA San Andreas. 2 seater mild-defence helicopter. Has a machine gun identical to the Police Maverick's (pictured below). Will be useful for getting to the small islands such as the Statue of Happiness island.

Heavy-lifting Heli:
Sea King (aka Leviathan)

Was in San Andreas. Will be fun to fly up to a gruppe sechs (security money) van, pick it up, smash it into some buildings to get the drivers stirred up, land and take the prize. Quite an old aircraft, used for sea rescue.(was in that sh*tty movie with Ashton Kutcher)

Police Choppers:


Police Maverick

Same as the maverick (featured above) but with police colours. Includes a machine gun, but it only fires straight ahead (may change in GTA IV).

Police Variation of the Sirorsky S-70

Seen in the screenshot below, this could possibly be a level 4 or 5 wanted level addition. Since it is apart of the police force, not the military, it doesn't have "hardcore" machine guns or rockets. I presume that it will have a machine gun similar to the police maverick. Will be good for SWAT-like rope rappeling into tough situations.

So far this is the list of people who have provided assistance ( cookie.gif cookie.gif to them!):

Miskatake


Well that concludes my segment.
If you have any suggestions or additions please feel free to comment! biggrin.gif

if anyone else wants to we could start up a defence vs assault match in multiplayer and the assault could all come in the AH-64 Apache (pictured above) if it ends up in the game.

Would be very interesting indeed. Imagine the defence side all in one appartment building with two people on the roof with RPG's and the rest heavily fortified inside. We swoop in in a heli with rockets and kill the two on the roof, land and assault the building while the pilot of the heli scans through the windows of the building and kills them all matrix style! (like when they are rescuing morpheous)

Can't figure out what you mean by "at least I have a PS3"

Yes, the sea sparrow has a machine gun but no rockets, i have updated the original post. Thanks for the help!

Buzz, wrong! The AH-64A only holds two aircrew; the pilot and the weapons system operator/navigator. Also, the AH-64D Apache Longbow/WAH-64 Apache (British variant) is the newest version of the helicopter.

I'm sorry, but where did you get the information that a UH-60 holds a 105mm HOWITZER? I think you mean it can have a howitzer under its fuselage for transport purposes. The UH-60 is usually configured with two 7.62mm M240G machineguns for self defense. The reason it doesn't have heavier armament is because it's a transportation helicopter. The UH-60 would usually be assisted by an Apache/Kiowa/Cobra flying patterns at over 2,000ft.

Ok, now I'll just identify the other helos to the best of my ability (because I'm a prick like that).

The Cargobob appaears to be an Mi-8 HIP, I could be wrong.

The Maverick is a Bell 407, a pretty common civilian helicopter

The Sea Sparrow is the Bell 47 model converted to military use under the name H-13 Sioux.

The Leviathan is based on the almost infamous (in the helicopter world) Sea King. It's growing quite old now and is mainly used as a search and rescue helicopter but also saw action with the British Royal Marines during the invasion of Iraq where they were lifted in to Al Faw with Sea Kings under heavy AAA fire.

Sea King is still used by the RAF (Royal Air Force), Royal Navy and Army to this day. I work at a place where they repair, Chinook, Sea King, Lynx, Puma and the EH101.

thanks for all the help people!

I have updated the list with your information Eddie, thanks for the great assistance, you have been added to the great help list.

As I promised, anyone who gets on that list gets a cookie.gif , so without further adu, Eddie and Miskatake I present you both with cookie.gif cookie.gif lol biggrin.gif

I was thinking about that helicopter match in GTA IV team deathmatch when it comes out (see my previous posts in this topic), I reckon it would be awesome. We gotta set this up, like the beer brawl they are doing at the beer gardens.

They never put it in to production, only the testing stages. In the end it just ended up costing too much for a piece of kit which nowadays would be irrelevant.

You forgot the copper chopper, (Police Maverick) and the Helitours Maverick. But they're basically the same thing w/ a paintjob.
