AH-1Z SuperCobra / Viper

The AH-1Z can be considered the USMC's (United States Marine Corps) equivalent of the US Army's Apache and will be included on naval missions.
This recent variant which originated from the AH-1W SuperCobra features state of the art technology which will give the mythic "Cobra" the ability to stick to the modern standards of military helicopter technology.
It will be deployed from certain ships and it's main objective will be to to give gunship support to USMC Landing Troops and air-to-ground attack capabilities (like the AH-64D).

This version uses the newest engines and composite main rotor system (which will greatly enhance movement and maneuverability over older "Super Cobras") and it is obviously fitted with the latest in target sighting systems and communications equipment.
Speaking of armament, the AH-1Z will be armed with a similar set just like the one found on the AH-64D (Hydras and Hellfires for some serious air-to-ground attack).


M197 Gatling Gun
Hydra 70 Folding-Fin Aerial Rockets (FFAR's)
AGM-114N Hellfire II Air-to-Ground Missiles
20mm (20 x 102mm)
70mm (2.75 inch)
