The Shuigang Helicopter, or "Shuigang Chopper", is an attack helicopter used by the Soldiers of said Kingdom, used for aerial combat or air support. It is one of the mid-bosses of Sky Battalion in Carol & Milla's story (alongside the Grappler & Satellite), being fought on the Fire Ship. The Shuigang Helicopter also appears as a Mini-Boss in Battle Glacier.
One of these Choppers are seen in the Opening Cinematic of Freedom Planet, helping defend Shuigang Palace against Lord Brevon's forces and is subsequently destroyed. Several more are seen in the Intro Cinematic of Dragon Valley, pursuing and shooting down Torque's Plane. In Lilac's Story, another Chopper is seen helping Spade board the Fire Ship, and helping him escaped after being defeated.
Destroying a Shuigang Helicopter with a single Dragon Boost as Lilac will earn the player the Boost Perfectionist Achievement and a cheer from Lilac, in which she'll say "Yeah! Awesome!".
The easy way to beat the Chopper mid-boss in Sky Battalion is to lure it to the ledge when it's about to drop a load of bombs. If positioned correctly, the blasts from the bombs on the ledge are powerful enough to defeat the Chopper in one go.
- Missiles Launcher: The Chopper will fire a cluster of missiles at the player.
- Bombs Barrage: The Chopper will drop a number of bombs on the area around the player.
- There appear to be two different types of Shuigang Helicopter pilots.
