Could be - but human players also should know, that it is not an ordinary workhorse of Polish air cavalry, more luring, than W-3 Sokół..
Then put some text to that effect in the unit description text as well as giving it an x3 code?.

As you like. Maybe you'd want me to write encyclopedia descriptions for Polish units then?..

Spain

520-523 - HA.28 - according to article in Polish "Lotnictwo" 6/21 and Spanish https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurocopter_EC665_Tigre it has a name "Tigre".
First version used in Spain was HAP (and it might have been its designation - Helicóptero de Apoyo y Protección), but it was armed only in 30mm gun, rockets and Mistrals.

Spike was introduced only with Tigre HAD (Helicóptero de Ataque y Destrucción), delivered from 2015 and probably operational from 2016, when they fired first Spike [now: all 1/08]

Now we have HAP units 520 and 521 with 4 Mistrals and 22 or 44 rockets. Since it can carry 44 rockets and 4 Mistrals, a weaker one seems redundant. But, as this photo shows https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/F...547548575).jpg, maybe unit 520, instead of Mistrals, should carry 68 rockets?...

501,502 HR.15 (Bo-105) - withdrawn in 2017 (https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/MBB_Bo_105 )

Eurocopter EC-135 is used as a light helicopter from 2007 (as HU.26) (https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anexo:...ic%C3%B3pteros )

We have unit 582 HE.26, but it is wrong - photo and capacity suggest EC Panther or something similar, but HE.26 is a designation of training HU.26 = EC.135 (light helicopter).


507 HT.21L (Puma) - still in use, according to the article and last quoted page (not for long, to be replaced with last deliveries of NH-90)

BTW: should 506 and 507 HT.21 have carry capacity 220? French Pumas have 120, and 509 HT.27 (Cougar) has 125.

581 NH-90 TTH - according to the same page https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anexo:...ic%C3%B3pteros Entrada en servicio: 2014 [1/10]

(BTW: I've just searched for NH-90 in German oob... and it seems it isn't there! Used from 2012 at least)

More precisely, according to the quoted article, first two were delivered in 9/16 (in 2014 a contract was signed). I don't know when they became operational in significant number, though.
Spanish designation is HT.29.

Seems the Indians are arming their Russian-made helos with Spike NLOS missiles.
