I doubt tactical finesse is the reason here, since the AI's way of operating helos is to fly them in a straight line and ATGM any vehicle that is spotted. I do use NOE, but this is how helos are supposed to be used anyway.

Just d'like to add some issue related to helicopter tactics on front-line now which is discussed here

they are inside this article even two videos examples of Ka-52 and Mi-28 recorded during fights

WASHINGTON — Textron’s Bell has won the U.S. Army’s competition to build the Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft, the service’s largest helicopter procurement decision in 40 years.

The deal for the next-generation helicopter is worth up to $1.3 billion and is set to replace roughly 2,000 Black Hawk utility helicopters and around 1,200 Apache attack helicopters around 2030. FLRAA will not serve as a one-for-one replacement for existing aircraft, but it will take over the roles of the Black Hawk, long the workhorse of the Army for getting troops to and around the battlefield, and the Apache, focused on attack missions.
So looks like the Army gets mini V-22 in 2030 or so...

The tilt-rotor design of the V-22 makes it problematic to create an "Attack" version of it. So don't expect AH-1s or AH-64s to go away any time soon.

I suppose this is helo related since the Hellfire is normally a helo weapon system.

Default Re: Helo News game related.

There seems to be a lot of testing new applications for weapons like the Hellfire.... brimstone instantly comes to mind and from what I found online was the Hellfire is cheaper to build than either the Brimstone or the Javalin so ground launch vehicles could very well become reality in the near future and both the Brimstone and Hellfire have a greater range than a Javalin but the Javalin is, of course, man-portable

There are all kinds of old tank / APC hulls in storage that could be adapted to be missile carriers






Or just adapt the helo mount for vehicles would seem doable
