The Castro has reasonably good speed and the Maneuverability  of the helicopter is Moderate.

TacticsEdit

The Castro Transport, sporting no weapons, is unsuited for combat. Like all helicopters in the Castro series, its large size makes it an easy target however with the right flying It makes a good troop transport. It's best used for winching vehicles and deployments. When the PLAV soldiers call for reinforcements, or when the player verifies an HVT a Castro transport will come.

  • They are all named after famous Cuban revolutionist Fidel Castro
  • The Lucky Lady, the helicopter Ewan pilots, is a Castro Transport with a different paint job to the PLAV, with the engine hatches closed.
  • The Castro in the PlayStation 2 version of Mercenaries 2 only features a transport configuration.
  • On the front of every Castro helicopter, other than Ewan's Castro, is the well known "Shark Mouth" design utilized on several military aircraft, however more notably in jets and planes, and is not seen much on rotary aircraft. 
  • If verifying an HVT, if you grapple onto it, you can just fly along grappling forever on it. This has been tested and confirmed on this and the Rogue Transport.
