|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
Like its predecessor, the Attack Helicopter is a detector unit - it reveals invisible units within its line of sight, allowing nearby units to attack it. Also, unlike Fighters and Bombers, Helicopters in general are not garrisoned inside the Airbase after construction. They are controlled like all other units and can hover in the air indefinitely without any need to refuel.
The Attack Helicopter is built and upgraded at the Airbase.
Production cost increases for every unit of the same type, whether on the field or currently in production, by a fixed +1 Oil. The maximum cost for Attack Helicopter is capped at 202 Wealth / 202 Oil (reached with 112 units). Actual production and upgrading costs may differ, depending on researched technologies, connected rare resources, or adopted governments.
The standard unit model used by all nations is the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter.
Attack Helicopters, in reality, make use of machine guns for soft-targets. The lack of such weapons on these units may be for gameplay reasons.
