Cobra

The Mamba is an attack helicopter with the primary role of an attack aircraft, with the capability of engaging targets on the ground, such as enemy infantry and armored vehicles. Due to its heavy armament it is sometimes called a helicopter gunship.

Weapons used on the Mamba include 6 laser-seeking antitank missiles and 6 .50 Cal Machine Guns with 1,000 rounds each.

The Mamba has two main roles: first, to provide direct and accurate close air support for ground troops, and the second, in the anti-tank role to destroy enemy armor concentrations. The Mamba is also used to supplement lighter helicopters in the armed scout role. In combat, the Mamba is projected by Destro to destroy around 17 times its own production cost before it is destroyed.
