Game analysis[]

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon[]

"An assault and attack helicopter that is a mainstay of the Russian Army. Highly durable because of its heavy armor, it is also appealing because of the abundance of weaponry loaded on board. The unique rounded shape of the nose is a notable feature and it is referred to by the NATO codename "Hind." In addition to anti-tank combat and close air support, it has a wide variety of uses including the transportation of military personnel and goods."
