Frogger is a an opened civilian helicopter, which is a production of a fictional, in-game Japanese company Maibatsu, responsible for developing of numerous kinds of vehicles and some other stuff, which parodies a real-existing company Mitsubishi.
Maibatsu Frogger is an exclusive helicopter for Grand Theft Auto 5, and it didn't make it's appearance in any other part of the GTA series. Frogger represents a helicopter with a rather light, opened construction (just care to wear warm clothed to avoid getting cold). The helicopter appears in different paint jobs, but they all have the same colour scheme - the main colour and a curve, a strip coming from the back of the tail to the bottom of the helicopter's body, which is painted in a different colour. The most widespread colour combination is a black with silver strips.
There is a variant of the Frogger helicopter with a completely different colour scheme, which was stolen by Trevor from FIB during mission Three's Company, after what he repainted it using a sprayed to fit his likings and to denounce "feds". In means of specifications, it is no different from the default variant.
Maibatsu Frogger is definitely the fastest helicopter in the game, it has no match by speed, but it is noticeably inferior by manoeuvrability, when compraed to some other helicopters, like Buzzard or Frogger. The other con of the Swift is it's fragility - not only it is enough a few bursts to take it out, but a too hard landing may cause it's tail to fall off.
The prototype of Maibatsu Frogger is AgustaWestland AW109.
