The Cargobob is a huge military helicopter exclusive to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It is a relatively rare helicopter, with only two spawning points, one of them exceedingly dangerous.

First Generation

The Cargobob is the largest and heaviest helicopter in the game. Its fuselage is most 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. It is very slow due to its weight. As the Cargobob is very heavy, it is difficult to adjust altitude, turn or conduct other evasive maneuvres; it also lacks any form of defense. It is, however, very strong — it can take over 12 missiles before catching on fire. Having only two doors, the Cargobob is only capable of seating two.

Second Generation


The vehicle takes the form of a large brown camouflage helicopter inspired by the popular Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low and Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallion. Also the tail boom and rotor appear to be inspired by the Boeing CH-47 Chinook.



Grand Theft Auto V


  • The Heavy Cargo Helicopter is the first helicopter in the Grand Theft Auto series to feature 2 main horizontal rotors.
