Annihilator is an armed law-enforcement helicopter, produced by a fictional in-game American organisation Western Company, which parodies such real-existing companies, as Sikorsky Aircraft, Bell Helicopter and Boeing.
Western Annihilator is a very massive (visually, at least, but it's weight of 13000 kilograms is also quiet impressive) helicopter, which stands out with it's gaunted, flattered nose doesn't look alike noses of other helicopters. The helicopter Annihilator made it's debute in Grand Theft Auto IV and went to the fifth part without any kinds of noticeable design changes, however you can't find Western Annihilator in a singleplayer of GTA 5 - it can be bought only for $1825000 on the www.ElitasTravel.com website for GTA: Online. The helicopter has a full black paintjob with a single yellow line in the middle of Annihilator's body and tail, with a "Patriotism and Immigration Authority" writing on it.
Unfortunately, Western Annihilator lost a lot of it's speed since GTA 4, and it is one of the slowest helicopters in the game, comparable to the Cargobob. Manoeuvrability is neither the strong part of the helicopter. Annihilator is equipped with four gatling machine guns, two per each wing, however, unlike Annihilator from The Lost and Damned, they fire regular rounds, not high-explosive ones, it doesn't stop from killing any foes en-masse (except for a Rhinko tank, of course), though.
The prototype of Western Annihilator is the Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter.
