The Leviathan is an amphibious helicopter that appears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description Edit

Design Edit

Based on the Sikorsky UH-3H Sea King, with some visual elements similar to the HH-52 Seaguard, the Leviathan is the second largest helicopter on the game and has the ability to land on water thanks to its boat-shaped hull. It is very slow and sluggish, slowly ascends, and strangely has the same rotor sound as the Hunter, Cargobob and Raindance. Its name comes from the mythological creature of the same name. It only features one livery, light grey with a yellow stripe on the tail.

Performance Edit

The Leviathan performs like the Cargobob. Due to its large size and weight, the helicopter is sluggish and slow, and should not be used like the Hunter or the Maverick. Handling is one of the heaviest of the game. If moved too fast, it may lose control, get upside down, and eventually crash.

Mission Appearances Edit

The Leviathan is used in the mission Up, Up and Away! in which the helicopter has a crane with a magnet attached to the bottom that can be used to lift vehicles. There is no way to obtain any helicopter with a magnet like this outside of this mission, but some mods may enable the Leviathan to have a magnet crane attached to it. The Leviathan from this mission can be saved, but its magnet will not be saved in the garage. Once completing the mission, a Leviathan will spawn at Verdant Meadows, but it does not come with a magnet.

It is also seen in the mission Interdiction to drop a package, and Carl has to protect it from various CIA choppers that give chase.

Locations Edit
