Tips & TricksEdit
- Their main purpose is to be used in conjunction with the South Korean attack helicopter squadron to stop the advance of the horde of Chinese tanks that will eventually spawn at Shenyang. Once the battle is over, you can use them together with any other helicopter units to chase down and destroy the retreating Chinese formations.
- The Chinese force is almost entirely dependent on Radar AA and a number of Anti-Aircraft Teams to cover them, the Radar AA can be destroyed by SEAD fairly easily while the AI rarely depends on AA teams. Allowing you to use autocannons (especially the autocannon armed Pumas) at close range, just be wary of opposing autocannons mounted on helicopters and APCs.
