The Z-9A TY-90 is a prototype anti-aircraft helicopter for China that first appeared in Wargame: Red Dragon. It is armed with eight TY-90 air-to-air missiles.



Purely designed to counter helicopters, the Z-9A TY-90 is arguably the best anti-aircraft helicopter in the game. Equipped with 8 missiles that rival the French Mistral, it has great characteristics in speed, range and quantity of missiles. However, it is not particularly sturdy, and is quite expensive.

The Z-9A TY-90 is best used in either a hunter role or as an escort for transport vehicles.
