The Longbow is an attack helicopter of the Allies. It is the only aircraft with the ability to attack other aircraft.

It behaves similarly to the Hind, but it shoots rockets rather than bullets, making it effective against heavy armored vehicles, buildings and other aircraft. It is not effective against infantry.

The Longbow has the highest visibility range of all the allied units.

The longbow is sometimes confused with the hind by new players due to visual similarities, but the two helicopters do not look exactly the same.


The Longbow is an upgraded variant of the AH-64 Apache.
