Lore

- Comanche attack helicopter

Despite its cursed development history which was marred by overflowing costs and even a temporary cancellation in the early 2000s, the US Army's infamous Comanche project has eventually produced one of the most agile and heavily armed helicopter gunships in the world, to the point that the aging AH-64 Apache Longbow was retired. Equipped with a triple-barreled gatling cannon and deadly Hellfire anti-tank missiles, the Comanche proved itself in many battles, most importantly in the Global War on Terror where they assisted large groups of retreating American troops from the pursuing GLA forces during Operation: Guardian Angel, preventing a massacre. Over the years the design was improved even further: the optional rocket pods that could be previously installed were discarded in favor of additional space for more Hellfire missiles, making the Comanche even more effective at taking on approaching tank columns. The armor was also improved slightly and the missile bay doors became retractable in order to avoid making them exposed while not in combat, so that incursions by rocket troopers would not lead to the destruction of the Comanche's own weapons. Though the war has yet to see its turning point, the Comanche is already a major concern for Russian tank formations all over Europe, and even moreso for infantry divisions, mainly due to the stories of the helicopter slaughtering hordes of Rebels during the Global War on Terror.
