The AB 205 A-1 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:
- 2 x 7.62 mm M134 Minigun machine guns (3,000 rpg = 6,000 total)

- 2 x 7.62 mm M134 Minigun machine guns + 14 x SNEB type 23 rockets
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
- Rockets are great for ground-pounding
- Miniguns can shred enemy choppers with a good burst
- Miniguns are useless against tanks
- No missiles, no thermal imager
- Unarmoured and slow
- Low amount of SNEB rockets
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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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
