Re: Using a helicopter as a ground attack bomber

Jack,
The Navy has dropped bombs from it's ASW helos since the 50's. The Navy dropped bombs from blimps. Then again, they weren't "ground" attack bombers. Dropping bombs on ground troops is really a dumb thing to do. Even if they only have rifles a helo would be a sitting duck. Give the troops a stinger or two or even wire guided things and a helo would be meat. Sounds like something the Russians would do.
