The Jackson Z-19 Skreemer is one of the 4 attack helicopters in Just Cause (1).


The wheels are poorly arranged, so the helicopter easily falls onto its side when on uneven ground.

It has 2 seats, but you can never have a passenger. The pilot sits in the front seat.

It's obviously based on the American attack helicopter Boeing AH-64 Apache, but with a different combination of weapons and cockpit.

It's made by the fictional Jackson company.


It's faster than civilian and police helicopters and about average in comparison to military helicopters. It has good maneuverability and takes off quickly as well.

The windows often break when attacked by a police helicopter, but the Skreemer is the only helicopter that can survive a direct missile hit, not counting the invincible agency chopper. It will explode if hit by a second missile. Very rarely, the game may bug and the chopper takes multiple missiles before it catches fire.

All versions are armed with missiles that fire one at a time and machine-guns. Those missiles also reload quite fast.

The improved survivability and well rounded performance makes it a decent pick for many situations.
