It reminds me of the A-10. Perfect for a role against units that are less common than in EE and ALB.
If your Longbow is facing uber heavies, it's great.
If it's facing MANPADS, it dies (No rockets to supress them), if it faces AA, it dies (No rockets to stun them, have to rely on the Hellfires, which can take too long. Old tactic was to stunlock with rockets, buy time for hellfires), if it faces planes, it dies, like all helis, and if it faces AA helis, it dies, because of no AA weapon.
It fulfils a very small (too small) niche, very well.
