The [[Maibatsu Corporation|Maibatsu]] '''Frogger''' is a civilian helicopter that appears in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''.
   
The [[Maibatsu]] '''Frogger''' is a civilian helicopter that appears in [[Grand Theft Auto V]].
+
== 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]].
   
== Description ==
+
Apart from civil use, Froggers are employed by various groups. Some are operated by the [[FIB]] and [[Merryweather Security]]. Civilian versions are also used in the [[Base Jumping|parachuting]] side activity.
 
The design of the helicopter appears to be based on that of the [[wp:Eurocopter EC130|Eurocopter EC130]] and [[wp:Eurocopter AS350|Eurocopter AS350]]

====White====
  +
A white version with a [[Police Maverick]] spotlight appears in the mission [[The Bureau Raid]], after the first rappel event. It appears alongside the attack [[Buzzard]], shifting positions but not engaging players after the Buzzard is destroyed. Depending on if the mission has been completed previously, the pilot may be civilian or FIB. Acquiring the helicopter requires cheat codes to jump down/skip the second rappel event, then damaging it until it's forced to land. The police spotlight is still active upon the player entering it. If the attack Buzzard is destroyed prior, the Frogger will shift over from the highway and over the uneven park grounds. It will crash when forced to land on the uneven terrain. Like the spotlight on Police Mavericks, it can be shot out. Unfortunately the helicopter cannot be repaired with the "character switch repair", currently the helicopter will disappear upon switching back to the character who's occupying it.

A Frogger painted the same yellow (sometimes referred to as a pale lime-green) as the [[Lifeguard|Lifeguard Granger]]s which appears to be affiliated with the Lifeguards can be seen flying in a pattern over the coast of [[Vespucci Beach]] sometimes as far as Chumash. It never lands, making the helicopter tricky to obtain.

To get it, you need to destroy it with a Buzzard until its engine breaks (once the engine starts shutting off a couple times for a few seconds, leave it, as the engine will eventually completely break), it will slowly start to descend, when it's low, quickly determine where it's going to land, and get down to the ground before it does. As soon as it hits the ground, quickly enter it, you will not be able to enter it if the pilot & passenger hop out. Once you take it, quickly switch characters to perform the character switch vehicle repair trick. However if the helicopter has officially shut down completely before the repair is performed, the helicopter will vanish.

*Sometimes NPC controlled versions land at the [[Vespucci]] helipads. Black versions are the most common, however two other colors are possible to see there.

When the rotor stoped 3-4 times the system will give a warning sound and the rotor-engine completely shuts down, leaving the helicopter unuseable and slowly floating to the ground.

=== General ===
  +
* The Frogger is obviously named after the 1981 game "[[wp:Frogger|Frogger]]".
  +
* The Frogger, the [[Grand Theft Auto V|GTA V]] [[Beta vehicles|beta]] [[Hunter]] and the [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas|GTA San Andreas]] [[Cargobob]] are the only helicopters in the series with the [[wp:Fenestron|Fenestron]] tail rotor.
  +
* Unlike the Maverick and Police Maverick, it only features 1 mounted winch, on the left.
  +
* In real life, it is impossible to find a Japanese helicopter in other countries like the US, as Japan isn't allowed to build aircraft for export purposes as an effect of WWII. Therefore, the Japanese origins of the Frogger are entirely fictional.
  +
** However, there have been some exceptions to this rule, as in real-life the NAMC YS-11 turboprop airliner was both designed and built in Japan, and it was exported worldwide. It is possible that in the GTA universe, the Frogger may be a similar exception.
  +
  +
=== In-game ===
  +
*In Singleplayer, the unique colors include red, range, blue, white, and yellow. They cannot be purchased, only stolen from NPCs. The black version can be purchased, the maroon version saved from a mission, and Trevor's version is easily obtainable.
  +
* In Singleplayer, Froggers stolen from NPCs can be saved at player's owned helipads by landing them there.
  +
** However only one can be saved at a time at each helipad, and selecting a purchased helicopter will cause the stolen Frogger to vanish from the helipad. (Requiring the player to find another again).
  +
** Due to the save restriction of stolen helicopters, only a max 3 of the 5 unique Frogger colors can be saved at any given time. Keep in mind that means that all 3 character helipads would be occupied in that situation, and no other helicopters could be used without sacrificing one of the unique Froggers.
  +
** As well it's possible to "duplicate" a unique Frogger after saving it at a helipad. This is accomplished by taking off, flying a good distance away, landing & then temporarily exiting the helicopter. Upon flying back to the player's helipad, a new copy of the unique Frogger will have spawned. As well carefully swapping ownership of a unique Frogger to another of the characters can do the same, thus two helipads will posses the same unique Frogger.
  +
* In GTA Online, NPC controlled unique colors red & orange can sometimes still land at Vespucci Helipads, although it is more rare than in story mode.
  +
*The Frogger is not very usable for making "Fly-By's" and evacuation scenarios because of the mostly open and light structure of the helicopter, which gives almost no defense against enemy firearms. It often takes only a few shots to the engine and it will shortly after suffer from the damage. If the rotor has been stopped about 3-4 times the system will give a warning sound, and the rotor-engine will completely shuts down, leaving the helicopter unuseable and slowly floating to the ground.
  +
*Hacking the game will result in a real FIB Frogger, which is the unaltered [[Trevor Philips Enterprises|TPE]] variant. Is unknown where appears in the game, likely will be cut from the game.
  +
**It's possible that the original helicopter from [[Three's a Company]] is the FIB Frogger, due to the fact that [[Michael De Santa|Michael]] recognized the vehicle in [[Predator (mission)|Predator]] asking [[Trevor Philips|Trevor]] if he is stole the helicopter from the FIB. This is proven by the fact that the bosses of this mission are FIB agents. A reasonable theory is that a FIB helicopter was too flashy for pedestrians and the building's people.
  +
**It also likely to be used in the Roof Entry Approach of the Bureau Raid, as the helicopter that crashes into the building at the start is described by the pilot as the '''FIB Chopper'''.
  +
*Frogger helicopters can use any car color when the save editor program is used for singleplayer (Offline). Thus car colors such as Hot Pink or Chrome can be applied.
  +
*In GTA Online races, the helicopter can be made any color, along with every other helicopter (excluding the police and air ambulance variants), even the Cargobob.
  +
* [[File:FIB-GTAV-Helicopter side.jpg|thumb|220x220px|The FIB Frogger]]It can be noted that Trevor's Frogger does not match with the Frogger used in Three's Company. While Three's Company helicopter is red colored, Trevor's is black with FIB decals that were resprayed.
  +
**It appears that a [[FIB]] Frogger with black paintjob and FIB decals was planned to appear during Three's Company, that would match with Trevor's Frogger, but it was replaced in the final game.

The Maibatsu Frogger is a civilian helicopter that appears in Grand Theft Auto V.

Design Edit

The Frogger is a civilian helicopter whose design is based on the Eurocopter EC130, sharing its single-engine design and low tailboom. The passenger section is derived from the larger 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.

Apart from civil use, Froggers are employed by various groups. Some are operated by the FIB and Merryweather Security. Civilian versions are also used in the parachuting side activity.

VariantsEdit

Trevor Phillips EnterprisesEdit

Trevor Philips owns a black Frogger after the mission Three's Company. It spawns at the helipad at the Sandy Shores Airfield and features crudely painted red Trevor Phillips Enterprises logos scrawled on the tail, along with various decals (saying "Fuck da Feds" or "Pants down dick out"). Dialogue reveals the helicopter was stolen from the FIB by Trevor following said mission. It is possible to see FIB decals covered by TPE logos.

Exclusive colorsEdit

WhiteEdit

A white version with a Police Maverick spotlight appears in the mission The Bureau Raid, after the first rappel event. It appears alongside the attack Buzzard, shifting positions but not engaging players after the Buzzard is destroyed. Depending on if the mission has been completed previously, the pilot may be civilian or FIB. Acquiring the helicopter requires cheat codes to jump down/skip the second rappel event, then damaging it until it's forced to land. The police spotlight is still active upon the player entering it. If the attack Buzzard is destroyed prior, the Frogger will shift over from the highway and over the uneven park grounds. It will crash when forced to land on the uneven terrain. Like the spotlight on Police Mavericks, it can be shot out. Unfortunately the helicopter cannot be repaired with the "character switch repair", currently the helicopter will disappear upon switching back to the character who's occupying it.

Yellow variant Edit

A Frogger painted the same yellow (sometimes referred to as a pale lime-green) as the Lifeguard Grangers which appears to be affiliated with the Lifeguards can be seen flying in a pattern over the coast of Vespucci Beach sometimes as far as Chumash. It never lands, making the helicopter tricky to obtain.

To get it, you need to destroy it with a Buzzard until its engine breaks (once the engine starts shutting off a couple times for a few seconds, leave it, as the engine will eventually completely break), it will slowly start to descend, when it's low, quickly determine where it's going to land, and get down to the ground before it does. As soon as it hits the ground, quickly enter it, you will not be able to enter it if the pilot & passenger hop out. Once you take it, quickly switch characters to perform the character switch vehicle repair trick. However if the helicopter has officially shut down completely before the repair is performed, the helicopter will vanish.

FIBEdit

The FIB Frogger is a cut variant of the Frogger with black paintjob and FIB decals. Trevor's Frogger is the FIB helicopter resprayed. This helicopter was used in place of the maroon Frogger in Three's Company mission but was replaced for unknown reasons.

This helicopter can be obtained by spawning Trevor's Frogger and changing the livery setting to 0.

Mission appearancesEdit

  • It takes a role in the mission Three's Company, which involves all three protagonists having to do a "snatch and grab" target extraction for the FIB.
  • It played a role in the mission Predator where Michael snipes the O'Neil brothers at the forest from above.
  • It later appears in several heist missions, as Trevor is the only protagonist that owns one during the main storyline, except for one heist mission where Trevor does not appear and a Maverick is used instead.
  • In the mission The Bureau Raid, a white version with a Police Maverick spotlight appears.

LocationsEdit

GTA V Edit

  • Can be bought on www.elitastravel.com for $1,300,000. Always spawns in black.
  • A Frogger with a unique paint job (Trevor Philips Enterprises livery) can be found at the Grand Senora Desert airstrip after completing the mission "Three's Company." It is painted black with red text referencing TP Inc. written over it.
  • A white variant can be seen flying in the Bureau Raid.

TriviaEdit

General Edit

  • The Frogger is obviously named after the 1981 game "Frogger".
  • The Frogger, the GTA V beta Hunter and the GTA San Andreas Cargobob are the only helicopters in the series with the Fenestron tail rotor.
  • Unlike the Maverick and Police Maverick, it only features 1 mounted winch, on the left.
  • In real life, it is impossible to find a Japanese helicopter in other countries like the US, as Japan isn't allowed to build aircraft for export purposes as an effect of WWII. Therefore, the Japanese origins of the Frogger are entirely fictional.
    • However, there have been some exceptions to this rule, as in real-life the NAMC YS-11 turboprop airliner was both designed and built in Japan, and it was exported worldwide. It is possible that in the GTA universe, the Frogger may be a similar exception.

In-game Edit

  • In Singleplayer, the unique colors include red, range, blue, white, and yellow. They cannot be purchased, only stolen from NPCs. The black version can be purchased, the maroon version saved from a mission, and Trevor's version is easily obtainable.
  • In Singleplayer, Froggers stolen from NPCs can be saved at player's owned helipads by landing them there.
    • However only one can be saved at a time at each helipad, and selecting a purchased helicopter will cause the stolen Frogger to vanish from the helipad. (Requiring the player to find another again).
    • Due to the save restriction of stolen helicopters, only a max 3 of the 5 unique Frogger colors can be saved at any given time. Keep in mind that means that all 3 character helipads would be occupied in that situation, and no other helicopters could be used without sacrificing one of the unique Froggers.
    • As well it's possible to "duplicate" a unique Frogger after saving it at a helipad. This is accomplished by taking off, flying a good distance away, landing & then temporarily exiting the helicopter. Upon flying back to the player's helipad, a new copy of the unique Frogger will have spawned. As well carefully swapping ownership of a unique Frogger to another of the characters can do the same, thus two helipads will posses the same unique Frogger.
  • In GTA Online, NPC controlled unique colors red & orange can sometimes still land at Vespucci Helipads, although it is more rare than in story mode.
  • The Frogger is not very usable for making "Fly-By's" and evacuation scenarios because of the mostly open and light structure of the helicopter, which gives almost no defense against enemy firearms. It often takes only a few shots to the engine and it will shortly after suffer from the damage. If the rotor has been stopped about 3-4 times the system will give a warning sound, and the rotor-engine will completely shuts down, leaving the helicopter unuseable and slowly floating to the ground.
  • Hacking the game will result in a real FIB Frogger, which is the unaltered TPE variant. Is unknown where appears in the game, likely will be cut from the game.
    • It's possible that the original helicopter from Three's a Company is the FIB Frogger, due to the fact that Michael recognized the vehicle in Predator asking Trevor if he is stole the helicopter from the FIB. This is proven by the fact that the bosses of this mission are FIB agents. A reasonable theory is that a FIB helicopter was too flashy for pedestrians and the building's people.
    • It also likely to be used in the Roof Entry Approach of the Bureau Raid, as the helicopter that crashes into the building at the start is described by the pilot as the FIB Chopper.
  • Frogger helicopters can use any car color when the save editor program is used for singleplayer (Offline). Thus car colors such as Hot Pink or Chrome can be applied.
  • In GTA Online races, the helicopter can be made any color, along with every other helicopter (excluding the police and air ambulance variants), even the Cargobob.

    The FIB Frogger

    It can be noted that Trevor's Frogger does not match with the Frogger used in Three's Company. While Three's Company helicopter is red colored, Trevor's is black with FIB decals that were resprayed.
    • It appears that a FIB Frogger with black paintjob and FIB decals was planned to appear during Three's Company, that would match with Trevor's Frogger, but it was replaced in the final game.
