Bumping this topic with the most important anecdotes that no-one seems to think about.

Iranian Cobras saw extensive combat in the war with Iraq in the 1980s, most notably coming up against their "opposite number", the Soviet-built Mil-24 "Hind" gunship. The Hind was more powerful and faster than the Cobra, but the Cobra was more agile, and the two machines were fairly evenly matched in a "dogfight". The Iranians claimed six Cobra "kills" on Hinds, often using the TOW, while the Iraqis claimed ten "kills" on Cobras in return. The Iranians even claimed that Cobras shot down three Iraqi MiG-21 jet fighters.

Due to weapons embargoes, the Iranians had to make do with what was at hand, and apparently Iranian International AH-1Js were fitted with the AGM-65 Maverick missile, and used it with some success.
