The Sparrow is a helicopter featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Description

Based on the Bell Model 47 "Sioux", the Sparrow handles quite well in GTA Vice City compared to the Maverick despite its outdated appearance, but has taken a slight downturn in GTA San Andreas. It can fit 2 people inside and is great for transporting a body guard in GTA Vice City or a homie in GTA San Andreas. The Helicopter's weak point is its uncovered engine. A few shots is enough to bring it out of the air. Also of interesting is the tail rotor of the GTA San Andreas Sparrow, which is dislocated, placed a considerable distance further back from the tail fin.

A more practical variant, known as the Sea Sparrow, possesses a machine gun and the ability to land on water.

Trivia

  • The Bell Model 47 "Sioux", which the Sparrow bases itself off, features a military version, the H-13, made famous by its role in M*A*S*H, a television series that aired between 1972 and 1983.
  • Like most other aircraft in GTA San Andreas, the Sparrow plays K-DST by default.
