Hey guys, I've got a question on that topic. I was searching for some information about the russian assault helicopter KA-29 Helix B. I found plenty of information about that, but the standart weapon loadouts never contained AA missiles. It contained bigger (80 mm) and smaller unguided missiles, radio guided AT-6 anti-tank missiles, several additional guns (23 and 30 mm) and a 7,62 mm gatling-style machinegun in the nose of the helicopter. But never some kind of russian air-to-air missiles.
How do the fight agains enemy helicopters/aircraft? Do they only operate in combination with accompanying (?) other helicopters like KA-50/52 that are able to fight agains airborne targets?
Thanks in advance for some answers, PSC
