Thanks to @Morvran and @Rileyy3437 for inspiring this post and making ones for Britain’s Air and Naval Trees. Links to both are below:
Would you like to see more helicopters featured in the British Heli tree in the near future?
Yes, britain needs more helicopters
No, britian is fine with 4
Now please note this list is WIP and will be updated if further Additions are possible, additionally this thread has a seperate post purely for commonwealth/ other plausible nations (Jordan, Oman etc.) But for other nations is only for nations alreay featured in the UK tech tree, or vehicles with a strong precident to come to the Tree.
if you have a helicopter to Suggest please comment with the Helis Name, Proposed BR and any pre existing suggestions for said Helicopter, also feel free if you want to add a short description of the Helis usage and Armament to save me having to.
BR Placement is purely based on what I think they would have in RB considering their Armament, differences to pre-existing Helis, etc. Many will most likely not be correct
BR 7.3 - 8.0 Westland Gazelle AH.1 ~7.7 (unless we can prove it carried more than rockets, if so then ill move it up)
Im not sure why you put the CH-136 Kiowa so high BR when it never was fitted/tested with Guided armament, I would think 8.3-8.7 at most since it has LWR, Radar warning, Flares/Chaff etc. or even lower possibly*
No worries. I wish they did more but sadly they never did. However there is at least one time that a Canadian helicopter has been armed with attack armament.
Bell CH-146 Griffon (c/n 46401)
I am still completely unsure on how Canadian Officers let this company mount things to one of their Helicopter’s, as Canada has not official armed the CH-146 with this armament. http://cfdintl.com/h-1_oms/
They also use a Penguin which is even more powerful but more expensive which I think is why NZ started using the Maverick. My question is where does a helicopter with only two good missiles sit BR wise? I’d also like to know what weapons the SH-2F had in NZ service before the Super Seasprite.
An AU/NZ heli tree would be a solid addition to the UK, UH-1H Bushranger, Seasprite, Seahawk, Tiger ARH, and soon AH-64E.
I meant to say AH-64E but yes, some slight overlap there. Maybe just make the Australian camo an unlockable one on the UK one. Unless they actually end up having a difference (in weaponry possibly), maybe the Australian one would be premium in that case.
