A Cargobob in GTA San Andreas.

The Cargobob is a military helicopter in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V.



GTA San Andreas

The Cargobob is the largest and heaviest helicopter in the game, and it is a relatively rare helicopter, with only two spawning points, one of them exceedingly dangerous. Its fuselage is mostly reminiscent of a CH-47 Chinook (bulging fuel tanks, engine, cockpit/nose design, rear loading ramp). However, it has been given a different configuration resembling the smaller Sikorsky S-92. It also features a Fenestron-style tail rotor.

Although the Cargobob features an open rear loading compartment, it cannot carry other vehicles, as the ramp from the back cannot be operated. As the Cargobob is very heavy, it is difficult to adjust altitude, turn, or conduct other evasive maneuvers; it also lacks any form of defense. It is, however, very strong — it can take over 12 missiles before catching on fire and eventually exploding. Having only two doors, the Cargobob is only capable of seating two.


In addition to now being a tandem rotor helicopter, it now has more detail, including a desert camouflage and emblems that identify it as belonging to the United States Marine Corps. It is based almost entirely on the Sikorsky MH-53 "Pave Low", but has two rotors as mentioned above, rather than one.
