Description[edit]

The Gunship is an attack helicopter in the Battalion Wars series. Most effective against ground forces, the chopper can also inflict substantial damage to naval units. It is likely the most versatile unit in the series, capable of destroying gun emplacements, armored vehicles, and even naval forces.


Dossier Intel[edit]

Western Frontier[edit]

"With two mountings for AGM-115 Heckfire missiles, the Duey AH-86 gunship has no equal. Capable of cutting through enemy tank columns in no time, its slow speed can leave it exposed to fighters."


Tundran Territories[edit]

"The "double bubble" of the tandem cockpit of the Millicent Hound-E gunship is overpressurized to resist attack from biological agents. As a side effect of the high pressure, pilots are noticeably svelter upon completing a tour of duty."


Solar Empire[edit]

"In addition to banks of sophisticated jet thrusters, the Type-22 "Hummingbird" VTOL gunship provides lift through Reverse Magneto anti-gravity arrays built into the unit's underbelly. The system has the passive effect of inducing intense motion sickness in any unprotected infantry beneath."


Anglo Isles[edit]

The Anglo Isles have not developed this unit.


Xylvania[edit]

"The WolfenVocker "Duellist" has unguided X-Factor rocket pods mounted under the cockpit. The tail rotor is designed on a biplane configuration with independently controlled blades. This allows the copter to hover-turn at 45° per second."


Iron Legion[edit]

"The dull thud of the Blitzfire attack gunship's engines would often lull fleeing forces into a false sense of security. With their weapon systems off, Blitzfire pilots often used their scythe-like rotors in place of their main armament, sweeping through whole infantry divisions."
