Behind the scenes

SE

Several helicopters of the same type in promotional artwork for Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D.

This fictional helicopter first appeared in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots as a cargo helicopter used by the enemy PMCs. It is only seen in cutscenes, and cannot be interacted with by the player.

The same helicopter variant would later appear in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Once again, its appearance is limited to cutscenes. Its appearance in Metal Gear Rising also shows more details of its interior and cockpit areas during the relevant cutscenes. Its designation is never identified in either game.

Several helicopters of this type are seen in promotional artwork for Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, presumably standing in for the Mi-24 Hind helicopters that actually appear in-game. Its appearance would nonetheless be an anachronism for the game's timeframe, which is set in 1964.
