The armour on this helicopter consists of 20 mm composite AMAP-AIR surrounding the cockpit and protecting the pilot and gunner. Both the pilot and the gunner sit on 5 mm thick Kevlar seats. Finally, there is an additional 8 mm of steel separating the the two engines.

The fuel and transmission sit in the middle of the aircraft, between the gunner and the engine. There is no armour protection for the transmission and fuel, and their placement in the middle of the helicopter make them vulnerable to enemy fire.

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:

  • Optic is mounted above the rotor, has the ability to only expose the optic and fire on enemies
  • Fire And Forget ATGMs
  • Very manoeuvrable
  • Has RWR and MAW
  • Low thermal signature
  • Stingers and PARS-3 can be used on aircraft

Cons:

  • With the optic mounted above the rotor looking down you will see the rotor spinning
  • No frontal cannon
  • No radar
  • IR missiles will loose lock through smoke and obstacles

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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).
