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


  • Can mount 4 ATGMs that are fairly decent for the BR
  • Can land on water and land with its pontoons, which also makes it unique from other Alouette variants
  • Small profile, makes for a harder target to hit
  • Agile enough to dodge some autocannon fire or the occasional ATGM fired by ground vehicles


  • No MGs, cannons, or rockets - limited to the 4 x ATGM loadout
  • Low engine power, and the engine is not very responsive
  • Fragile airframe which will not resist much more than glancing hits from MG caliber rounds


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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: and add a link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