Thread starter #1
There are many Attack Helicopter brands and models all over the world chosen by different countries. Which one is the best depends on more than one criteria. Some of them are the power you need, weapons, maneuver capability etc.
What do you think is the most important criteria for an attack helicopter and which one is the best?

I'm inclined to say "the eurocopter tiger", despite its troubled youth, it's served us really well in France, I lnow all pilots love it, whether it's the Spanish, Germans, Aussies or French!
Has its flaws of course, but it's a great little attack helicopter that's relatively cost effective.

Otherwise it has to be the Ka-52, very versatile, fantastic payload, very solid choice that we don't know much about in the west!

I vote for the AH-1Z. The Viper is fast, powerful and reliable. Both A2G and A2A capabilities. When you compare stats for the top six attack helicopters, It stands in the top three in most categories.

It's a very difficult helicopter in maitenance, also it lacks several major upgrades in avionics, which shall be given in update to Ka-52M version.
