Han gunship icon
A brand-new addition to the PLA's air arm, the Type-102 Han Gunship sports inter-meshing counter-rotating rotor blades which give it a highly unique design. It is armed with twin anti-tank cannons and can be further upgraded with special armaments.

Lore

As China had learned in their previous conflicts, fighting an enemy in remote and inaccessible locations was difficult using their largely conventional armored forces. As such a design was drawn up for a well armed and armored attack helicopter which copied heavily from Russian gunships of the previous century and was designated Type-102 "HAN" by the PLA design committee.

After some other trivial issues were solved (the rotor blades had the unfortunate tendency to snap off during turns) it was ready for service. The protracted development period paid off; troops in remote areas suddenly had the equivalent of a heavily armored flying tank supporting them. The 100mm guns punched through the roof armor of tanks with ease, and the helicopter had enough ammunition to provide fire support over the battlefield for hours.
