Looking for the penultimate military transportation in Grand Theft Auto 5? Look no further than the Cargobob. This helicopter is built like a fortress, being so highly impervious to enemy fire. The Cargobob makes a few appearances, both in GTA 5 story mode and in GTA Online.
Will you actually need to fly one? And if so, when? Can you just go out and buy one? Here are your answers.

Where to Find a Cargobob GTA 5
This mammoth of a chopper is easy to spot from a distance, but you won’t see them flying around all willy-nilly. There are some different places where the Cargobob spawns around Los Santos in GTA Online. As you level up in the game, you will be able to find this chopper in the following locations:
- Grapeseed Runway
- La Puerta Helipads
- Los Santos International Airport
- Paleto Bay Sheriff’s Office
- NOOSE Headquarters
- Los Santos Hospital
- Sandy Shores Hospital
Like other vehicles in the game, the Cargobob does not spawn in the same place every time. It rotates between these different locations. Of course, you can simply buy one from Warstock Cache and Carry for personal use, but that’s not cheap – more on that in a moment.
Stealing the Cargobob from Fort Zancudo
After completing Scouring the Port, you’ll get a message from Wade. A Hs symbol will appear on the map, showing where the chopper is parked. It is inside Fort Zancudo, and you will have to go in as Trevor to steal it. You will only have 5 minutes and 30 seconds to complete the mission, which makes it a rather stressful one.
How Much It Costs
If you buy a Cargobob GTA 5, it will set you back $1,790,000 for the standard edition. Springing for the Jetsam Edition runs the bill up to a total of $1,995,000. This is definitely one to buy after you’ve made several million dollars in GTA Online.
What It Can Do
Aside from being virtually indestructible, the Cargobob GTA 5 is outfitted with a huge towing hitch that allows you to pick up big vehicles from around Los Santos. This chopper is also able to float on water.

You can find a Cargobob GTA 5 in several locations, but don’t plan on walking into Fort Zancudo and just taking one. One does not simply steal a Cargobob. However, when you do get to fly one, it makes for a good bit of fun.
