{{quote|The preferred method of transport for Liberty City high-fliers, the turbo shaft powered Swift shuttles its precious cargo in speed and comfort.|TBoGT Official Website}}
The official website of The Ballad of Gay Tony describes the Swift as "the preferred method of transport for Liberty City high-fliers", a "turbo-shaft powered" aircraft that "shuttles its precious cargo in speed and comfort"
+
The helicopter is heavily based on the [[wp:AgustaWestland AW109|AgustaWestland AW109]] , with some details of the [[wp:Bell 222|Bell 222]], such as the winglets on the tail, vents near the rotor and others.
   
  +
In-game, it's considered as a private shuttle helicopter, which is painted in a two-tone paintjob (white and black/dark blue), with the "Santo Capro" livery on it. The vehicle always comes with open side doors, while a closed side doors spawns in a rare occurrence (explained below). It belongs to [[Yusuf Amir]].
   
The design of the helicopter is seemingly a cross between the [[wp:AgustaWestland AW109|AgustaWestland AW109]] and the [[wp:Bell 222|Bell 222/230]]. The general design is from the AgustaWestland; the helicopter borrows the Bell's engine scoop design and the design for the end of its tail; the additional turbo intakes and the winglets seem inspired from the fictional attack helicopter [[wp:Airwolf (helicopter)|Airwolf]], an advanced stealth helicopter (which also a modified Bell 222 for [[wp:Airwolf|the 1984-1987 TV show of the same name]]).[[File:Swift_livery.png|thumb]]
+
=== Grand Theft Auto V ===
  +
The GTA V rendition retains its body style as in TBoGT, but it is well elaborated in terms of details. It features a retractable landing gear system just like its real-life counterpart. Working lamps have also been added to the sides. The windscreen is now of a lighter tint. Slide doors can be opened and closed, unlike TBOGT.
   
== Trivia ==
+
==Performance==
* The Swift bears a "SANTO CAPRO" (roughly translates as "Holy Capro" in Spanish and Italian) livery with an emblem resembling a Sea Goat (Capricorn) and the year 1898. The same emblem can be seen on [[Yusuf Amir]]'s tracksuit jacket that he wears. Combined with the fact that he owns the helicopter, and wears the jacket, Santo Capro might be a company that the Amir estate runs.
+
In terms of performance, the Swift is slightly faster and more maneuverable than other large helicopters, such as the [[Maverick]].
* When the blades of the Swift rip apart, they will turn black instead of white and before they rip apart, one blade will be of darker colour and will be twisted.
 
* The Swift can only hold two people, however in [[Blog This!...]], Luis, Tony, and [[The Celebinator]] all ride in one.
 
   
== Locations ==
+
In [[GTA V]], the Swift is the fastest helicopter available in the game, although it is clumsier and harder to maneuver compared to other helicopters such as the [[Frogger]] or [[Buzzard]]. It is also not particularly resistant, as a hard landing almost always causes the tail to break off. In [[GTA Online]], the vehicle is more intended for speedy travels than for combat purposes, since its low resistance will be a problem when facing enemies.

Elitás Travel description

The Buckingham Swift is a shuttle-civilian helicopter featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony and Grand Theft Auto V, added as part of The San Andreas Flight School Update.

DesignEdit

The Ballad of Gay Tony Edit

"The preferred method of transport for Liberty City high-fliers, the turbo shaft powered Swift shuttles its precious cargo in speed and comfort."
―TBoGT Official Website

The helicopter is heavily based on the AgustaWestland AW109 , with some details of the Bell 222, such as the winglets on the tail, vents near the rotor and others.

In-game, it's considered as a private shuttle helicopter, which is painted in a two-tone paintjob (white and black/dark blue), with the "Santo Capro" livery on it. The vehicle always comes with open side doors, while a closed side doors spawns in a rare occurrence (explained below). It belongs to Yusuf Amir.

Grand Theft Auto V Edit

The GTA V rendition retains its body style as in TBoGT, but it is well elaborated in terms of details. It features a retractable landing gear system just like its real-life counterpart. Working lamps have also been added to the sides. The windscreen is now of a lighter tint. Slide doors can be opened and closed, unlike TBOGT.

PerformanceEdit

In terms of performance, the Swift is slightly faster and more maneuverable than other large helicopters, such as the Maverick.

In GTA V, the Swift is the fastest helicopter available in the game, although it is clumsier and harder to maneuver compared to other helicopters such as the Frogger or Buzzard. It is also not particularly resistant, as a hard landing almost always causes the tail to break off. In GTA Online, the vehicle is more intended for speedy travels than for combat purposes, since its low resistance will be a problem when facing enemies.

LocationsEdit

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

  • The Swift is available at the west Algonquin helipad near the West River during the beginning of the game to the end of the game. After the completion of the game, the Gold Buzzard will replace the Swift instead.

Obtaining after game's completionEdit

Swift with side doors closed

From the "Missions" menu on Luis' phone, choose the mission Caught with your Pants Down and meet Yusuf Amir at Star Junction. Get in his helicopter and fly to any GTA IV/TLAD/TBoGT safehouse and land the helicopter in the parking space. Immediately kill Amir and the player. The mission will fail, spawning Luis at the hospital. The Swift will now be at that current safehouse for you to obtain.

The player can also obtain the Swift with side doors closed by doing the club management mission featuring Bruce Spade. You can either complete the mission and keep the helicopter, or kill Bruce and fly away. Take it to any parking space to save. The player can't, however, redo club missions after they are completed, so it's only available at one point.

Swift with side doors open

From the "missions" menu on Luis' phone, select the mission ...Blog This! and meet Gay Tony at the helipad. Immediately kill Tony and then The Celebinator (killing The Celebinator first will fail the mission and Tony will fly away). The mission will fail and the player will now have a Swift at your disposal. Save it at any parking space if you want to keep it.

GTA VEdit

  • Available on the protagonists' helipads after downloading the DLC. It will spawn either in a Classic black scheme or in a Flying Bravo red/green livery. However, the last one spawns frequently when selected in the helipad.

TriviaEdit

The Ballad of Gay Tony Edit

Swift livery
  • Yusuf Amir's Swift in TBoGT bears a "Santo Capro" livery ("Santo" meaning "Holy" in Italian and Spanish and "Capro" being Italian for "Billygoat") with an emblem resembling a Sea Goat (Capricorn) and the year 1898. The same emblem can be seen on Yusuf's tracksuit jacket that he wears. Combined with the fact that he owns the helicopter, and wears the jacket, Santo Capro might be a company that the Amir estate runs.
  • When the blades of the Swift rip apart, they will turn black instead of white and before they rip apart, one blade will be of darker colour and will be twisted. This explains that the "white blades" are actually blades with white color, as part of the entire color scheme.
  • The TBoGT version of the Swift can only hold two people, however in ...Blog This!, Luis, Tony, and The Celebinator all ride in one.

Grand Theft Auto V Edit

  • This is the second vehicle to be featured in Episodes From Liberty City that made a return in a GTA V DLC. The first was the Rhapsody which was featured in The Lost & Damned and brought back in the I'm Not a Hipster Update.
    • After the Swift was added in GTA V, this meant all of the helicopters introduced in TBoGT have now returned in GTA V (the others being the Buzzard and Skylift). 
  • It is the first helicopter featured in a GTA V DLC, being re-introduced in The San Andreas Flight School Update.
  • The Swift in GTA V is the first helicopter to have an undercarriage that can be retracted, similar to planes, as well as the only helicopter in the same game to have workable sliding doors.
  • Players can switch between the two liveries in offline mode. This is done by selecting the Swift (if it isn't already spawned on the character's helipad), selecting another helicopter (and letting it spawn), and switching back to the Swift. Out of 10 attempts, 6 or 7 will be a Flying Bravo Swift.
  • The black color scheme might be a reference to Airwolf. The reason is that in the game, the Swift is very similar with a black livery and feels smoother when piloting it with the retracted landing gears.
  • The Rockstar Games Social Club image of the Swift shows an unknown paint scheme that doesn't appear in-game. It consists of a blue paintjob with white stripes on its tail.
