The Little Willie is a gyrocopter in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

Design

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

The Little Willie is implied to be designed in the form of a gyrocopter, but lacks a crucial vertical rotor that provides the aircraft horizontal thrust; instead, the Little Willie features the same set of rotors (main horizontal blades and tail blades) seen on larger helicopters.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

Despite this shortcoming, the Little Willie is still the most nimble helicopter in the game, owing to its compact build, allowing the aircraft to achieve moderately good top speeds, small turning radius, and short mid-air stopping distances. The Little Willie also comes equipped with working twin machine guns, being the third armed helicopter in the 3D Universe (after the Sea Sparrow and the Hunter).

Unlike other helicopters, where they lose altitude over time when hovering in the air, the Little Willie is the only vehicle able to gain altitude over time.

Trivia

General

  • Its name is a reference to the famous gyrocopter "Little Nellie" used by Sean Connery's 007 in the film You Only Live Twice. It is also a reference to a 1915 tank prototype, also named Little Willie. Another reason for the name is that "willy" is another name for a penis.
  • An "autogiro" is named amongst leaked files available in the Max Payne 3 source code before the release of Grand Theft Auto V, yet it does not appear anywhere in the final game. This could mean an aircraft similar to the Little Willie was available in the beta version of the game, but was scratched early in development.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

  • The machine gun' sound is reused from the Uzi's firing sound.
  • The Little Willie will always spin when landing and exiting it.
