    Helicopter Gunships

    The helicopter was eventually armed to become a Gunship - a bridge between the dedicated attack helicopter and armed transport.





    There are a total of (30) Helicopter Gunships in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order. Flag images indicative of country of origin. This listing also includes those base platforms that can be modified for the helicopter gunship role. A listing of fixed-wing gunships can be found here.
