  • Total Attack Helicopter Strengths by Country


    The dedicated attack helicopter has revolutionized armored warfare with its tank-killing capabilities, close-support qualities and battlefield survivability.

    The dedicated attack helicopter emerged during the Cold War years when the tank proved the key component to battlefield victory for the enemy. The basic formula has not changed today where firepower, performance and survivability have proven key in a successful attack helicopter design. For the purposes of the GFP listing, only dedicated attack helicopters are considered - gunships or other converted transport platforms are not. Primary attack helicopters include the American Hughes AH-64 Apache, the Eurocopter Tiger and the Mil Mi-24/35 Hind series. Systems on order (heading into the new year) are not included.
