Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in a helicopter, the features of using the helicopter in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great agility - one of the most manoeuvrable helicopters in the game
  • Small profile
  • Access to Thermal Imaging
  • Great stock performance - comes with full missile payload stock
  • Countermeasure-resistant missiles
  • Access to RWR

Cons:

  • Weak powerplant - slow climb and top speed
  • Small missile payload
  • Poor survivability
  • Lacklustre air-to-air protection - only has access to optional 12.7 mm machine guns
  • Missiles require manual guidance
  • Small firing window - helicopter must be pointed at the target to guide effectively

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the helicopter in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
