Behind the scenes

  • Prior to 1.5, the Little Bird was available to USA players; it was later replaced by the Cobra, and in turn by the Viper.
  • In 1.802 the Little Bird can be coded back into the game, with same stats as its 1.5 version.


  • The Little Bird is also available in ShockWave, another modification by SWR productions, where it is armed with heavy machineguns instead of miniguns.
