Many countries around the world possess attack helicopters. Rotary-wing versatility and
survivability make it ideal for logistics resupply, air assault, command and control and heavily
armed weapons platforms for attack roles. Armed with stand-off anti-tank guided missiles,
helicopters can inflict heavy casualties on the force and destroy critical assets. The proliferation of
helicopters is also of concern. Utility helicopters, combined with stand-off munitions and state-of-
the-art target acquisition technology, can produce less expensive, robust helicopter capabilities for
any country. Potential threat helicopter air platforms, the Mi-8 Hip, Mi-24 Hind, and the Mi-28
Havoc are shown in figure 3.
