== Design ==

The Frogger is a civilian helicopter whose design is based on the [[wp:Eurocopter EC130|Eurocopter EC130]], sharing its single-engine design and low tailboom. The passenger section is derived from the larger [[wp:Eurocopter EC135|Eurocopter EC135]], with the most notable difference being the cockpit doors with enlarged windows. It is a more modern contemporary to the traditional [[Maverick]], and can be frequently seen in the skies of [[Los Santos (HD Universe)|Los Santos]].
   
The design of the helicopter appears to be based on that of the [[wp:Eurocopter EC130|Eurocopter EC130]] and [[wp:Eurocopter AS350|Eurocopter AS350]]

Apart from civil use, Froggers are employed by various groups. A[[Lifeguard Helicopter| modified variant]] is used by the [[Los Santos Lifeguard]], while others are operated by the [[FIB]] and [[Merryweather Security]]. Civilian versions are also used in the [[Base Jumping|parachuting]] side activity.
