In ALB I did this a lot with the sokol (back when it was good) against tomcats. Death circles got a taste of their own medicine :twisted:

You can use the supercobra as a pretty good non-radar aa with excellent range and mobility. Just land it behind a tree line and BOOM.

Agree, i think a lot of people underestimate the supercobra, saying its needs hellfire more AA missile or whatever


the supercobra is fantastic , is like a mobile AA against planes . Often people dont consider it a threat to their plane , and often dont even notice that it was the supercobra that shot it down or damage it

It also has no armor, has 6HP, cost 120 points and you only get three per card. But I think it'll still keep ripping off AIM-9's as long as you keep it supplied :lol:

meh, armor on helo is overrated. I think it could get a bit of price buff, to 115 or even 110

Yeah, but its missiles cost barely anything, it has 60% accuracy and reloads extremely fast.

I meant that a couple of mortars hit it and it's dead. It's not protected from arty fire like a Roland system is. So it's pretty high risk, high reward for leaving it on the ground.

Always bugged me that helos could fire while on the ground.
