Sanitary

The Nagasaki Buzzard is a small unarmed helicopter featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

Grand Theft Auto V

The Buzzard appears to be based on the Hughes OH-6, evidenced by its purpose as a light patrol/observation helicopter.

In-game, it is the unarmed version of the Buzzard Attack Chopper, which differs in the decals and lacks the stub wings and ammo box on the bay. Additionally, the helicopter is intended for use by the Los Santos Police Department, which employs it mostly for patrol purposes, while leaving the Police Maverick for offensive purposes.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto V

The Buzzard handles similarly to how its armed variant did in TBOGT as well as GTA V; being a very fast helicopter and nimble handling. The helicopter is now more stable that the TBOGT armed variant, as well as being able to yaw and pitch much quicker. Its incline and decline speeds remain about the same. It performs identical to the Buzzard Attack Chopper, albeit lacking the weaponry onboard. Additional players on the sides of the helicopter or within the cockpit may still use their own weapons. The Buzzard has a vertical climb and vertical fall rate of 400ft/min.

Although unusable by the player, the Buzzard comes equipped with a searchlight, which is used by NPCs, and usable by the player with the use of modifications only.

Trivia

General

Grand Theft Auto V

  • In Grand Theft Auto V, NPC controlled unarmed versions sometimes appear late at night, flying low over Davis and Strawberry districts. They possess a Police Maverick spotlight, similar to the unique White Frogger seen in The Bureau Raid.
  • Strangely, if the player gains a wanted level near an unarmed Buzzard patrolling the city, it will start to chase the player. If the player enters the cinematic camera, until it shows a mounted camera on the helicopter, pistol shots can be heard from the Buzzard, as if the pilot or a co-pilot is able to shoot whilst piloting.
  • The Buzzard has a search light, like the Frogger, Maverick and Police Maverick.
